IPA Winter 2014 in the Swiss Alps!

February 2nd – February 16th 2014

IPA Winter 2014 is cancelled!

We are very sorry to announce, that the IPA Winter 2014 is cancelled. We couldn´t keep the reservation for the house in the Swiss Alps, because we didn´t have not enough participants to pay the rent. We will try to find more sponsors next year, because we still think, that it is a great idea to spent together 2 week in the Swiss Alps to work and exchange about Performance Art.

Your IPA Winter Team

That´s simply great!!

The IPA Winter 2014 is an unique event in the series of meetings organized by IPA. All living and working spaces are in the same house – and there is nothing else to do than to develop your work! So IPA Winter 2014 will be an intense experience and for sure the right place to be if you are interested in bringing further your own approach in Performance Art and to meet with people from all over the world who are professionally engaged in this field.

You will stay in a hostel inmidst of one of the most beautiful regions of the Swiss Alps. Altitude 5800 ft - snow guarantied. You definetely shouldn´t miss it! There are still places available!

Like in all IPA Workshops the participants are young artists who are professionally engaged in the practice of performance art. The workshops are open to all ages, the average age is between 20 and 35 years. There will be about 45 invited participants who are taught in three groups.

IPA is a non-commercial organization. The fee is only used for organizing the events.

Dominik Lipp

Curator and Producer of FWD>>! the mobile artspace President of the association FWD>>!

Dominik Lipp has his roots in a broad tradition of performance art where body and mind are constantly challanged. He is active as a painter and performance artist in the Swiss town Rupperswil, nationally and internationally. In the years 2000-2006 he studied fine arts at Lucerne Scool of Art&Design. The encounter between fine arts and performance art has merged into a visual and physical expression. Lipp embodies a sertain sensability to natural materials and textures, wich leads to an almost romantic conception. Since 2011 he is the curator and producent of FWD>>!, the mobile artspace ( with Oliver Ziltener) and Performance Art Festival, in Noseland, Schöftland,in Switzerland. ( Text by Frictioner 2014)
