Voluspa Jarpa @HMKV, Dortmund

The exhibition focuses on the interaction between secret services and performance art – an art form that was considered particularly dangerous. Archives are accessible almost exclusively in Eastern Europe and reveal the “disruption” and “liquidation” of critical artists by state security services. For this, however, some of the agents had to become ‘performance artists’ themselves. Artists & Agents presents examples of artistic subversion and secret service infiltration, some of which have never been shown before. Recent works show: The question of the increasing use of secret service methods in today’s politics and everyday life is highly topical.
