Stereoskop is a monthly held performance festival and strives to build up a community around performance art. The performers are invited via open call and a new topic is set for every edition to encourage discussions about the different performances and the theme of the evening. The curation and organisation is a chance to reflect on the medium performance, its implications and the nature of events. This leads to a process of learning, communicating, exchanging and eventually building a community within and beyond the art scene. Especially from a humanist point of view we see enormous potential in the medium performance and want to serve as a platform for social engagement through art.
