Project ID In-Between Identities is a temporary creative community project aiming to face artistically the issue of the crisis of identity, working in performance art through personal and the societal conceptions of individuality. In a 10-days intensive Residency Class, P.s. Den Haag provides for a space to develop solo and collective performances under the tuition of artist duo VestAndPage together with Marilyn Arsem, to be presented during the weekend July 5 – 7, 2019 in a public event. A collective performance opera, solo and collaborative performances by the participants and additional invited international artists, as well as lectures and an exhibition, happen in the centre of The Hague at the former school building De Helena, Stichting Ruimtevaart, and De Barthkapel, a suggestive old convent chapel.
• The intensive Residency Class is tutored in a joint methodological process by VestAndPage and Marilyn Arsem
• For the Residency Class, we are calling for a maximum of 20 international artists, performers, actors, movers, sound artists and poets interested in a collaborative and physical art practice, including all levels of experience and different abilities.

This includes shared accommodation at The Hague Hostel and vegetarian meals during the period of the project (With arrival on June 24 and departure on July 8, 2019).

Artist Verena Stenke and artist and writer Andrea Pagnes have been working together since 2006 as VestAndPage, creating live performances, performance-based films, performance visuals, and poetic writings since over a decade, exploring performance art as phenomena through their collaborative creative practice, as well as through theoretical artistic research and temporary artistic community projects. Their art practice is contextual and situation-responsive, conceived psycho-geographically in response to social contexts, natural surroundings, historical sites, and architectures. In a “Poetics of Relations” they examine notions of temporalities, memory strata, communication and fragility of the individual and the collective within social and environmental spheres, applying the themes of trust in change, union, endurance, pain sublimation and risk-taking with a poetic bodily approach to art practice and a focus on universal human experiences. While encompassing a range of subtly different concepts, they primarily express VestAndPage’s view on reality while adding or revealing poetic elements as a rebellion against the exercise of power and discrimination among human beings. www.vest-and-page.de
Marilyn Arsem has been creating live events since 1975, from solo gallery performances to large-scale, site-specific works at festivals, conferences, alternative spaces, galleries, museums and universities in 29 countries throughout North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Thematically, her work has ranged from feminist deconstruction of images of traditional women’s work, to performances concerning the Cold War, to the impact of US imperialism in countries throughout the world, to works about environmental issues. The topic to which she has continually returned over the years has been our understanding of time, its passing, and mortality. She presented 100 Ways to Consider Time at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, which was 100 different six-hour performances in 103 days, from November 9, 2015 to February 19, 2016. Over the years Arsem has experimented with different ways of designing performances so that audiences share responsibility in making the work. In some cases, the audience is given control over the actions of the performer, in other works the audience has taken a specific role in creating the event. This reflects an interest in redefining power structures and illuminating how meaning is generated and shared between people. She is a member and founder of Mobius, Inc., a Boston-based collaborative of interdisciplinary artists. She taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for 27 years, establishing one of the most extensive programs internationally in visually-based performance art. www.marilynarsem.net
