Young Urban Performances Festival 2022
Call for Artist, we are looking: for Pleasure(-Activists), intimacy, closeness
and sexyness. We long for touch, for bodily fluids and frictions. We want to feel
pleasure, devote ourself and let go. We are hungry, desiring and shameless.
We want to understand nudity and eroticism as a means of expression, to
rebel against sexist, heteronormative and racialising attributions and as
a political issue against internalised and lived established structures in
For the YUP Festival 2022 we are looking for performances, video performances
or performative installations by groups or individual performers on the topic:
Pleasure. The event will take place on 18-20 March 2022 in Osnabrück. We look
forward to receiving your submissions via our application form. Give us an
impression of your artistic work with a written concept (one DIN A4 page is
enough), documentation or other forms of visualisation.
Here is the link to the application form:
Who is the YUP Collective?
Since 2017, the YUP Collective has been realising various event formats related
to performance art in Osnabrück and other cities. Our cooperation partners were Haus der Jugend, Kunsthalle
Osnabrück and Museumsquartier in Osnabrück. The YUP collective consists of
7 FLINTA*persons. As a self-organised group, the Collective is not bound to
any institution and works on a grassroots democratic basis. We understand our
curatorial-mediating practice as political, as it negotiates issues and topics
relevant to the collective and initiates discourses.
We will let you know the results of the submissions at the beginning of January
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us:

Traversing Topologies: Imagining worlds and knowledge with/through artistic research
Ticino, Valais, Gotthard area, online
As an experimental form of conferencing Traversing Topologies: Imagining worlds and knowledge with/through artistic research is interested in ways of experiencing real topologies in alignment with the numerous versions of their abstraction and generalization. With decentralized actions, walks, performances, and interventions, the conference explores mental, geographical, and digital landscapes, and in the process designs forward-looking perspectives for artistic research and knowledge configurations.«To conference» means finding a way to get together, sharing experiences, approaches, methods, processes and results. The conference connects three linguistic regions (Central Switzerland, Valais and the Ticino), reveals geographical and disciplinary fringes and takes place both online and in real space.
On 25 September 2021, the conference starts with an opening event at the Hochschule Luzern – Design & Kunst in Emmenbrücke. Then continues at La Scuola universitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana in Ticino and at École de design et haute école d’art du Valais in Sierre on 13 May 2022 and finally concludes with various projects in the Gotthard area on 14 May 2022.
