Since 2009, Stefan Krüskemper & Kerstin Polzin’s Berlin research group has been taking a performative approach to issues of art and public space.

In practice, their work involves a research method that is as discursive as it is performative. It uses body awareness and positioning within a space to give shape to abstract questions, allowing them to be physically experienced. The structural constellations that the performances create give rise to a complex discourse on questions of art and reality.

The artist Joseph Beuys was, for example, the focal point of a series of performative constellations that Stefan Krüskemper & Kerstin Polzin staged at the Heinrich Böll Foundation. These cast light on contemporary working conditions and realities governing artistic production in a social context. The works of Beuys as they relate to the 21st century served as reference points in this exploration.
