Stream is a platform for texts motivated by live art. Stream is open to an expansive understanding of “Live Art”. There will be texts that are inspired by a specific piece or body of art – the writer’s own artistic work or someone else’s, texts that are unfolding notions of live art, texts that are dealing with developments and transformations by the art form as such.
We understand writing as a movement practice and see our texts as autonomous pieces. We write and publish experimental, literary, poetic, theoretical, and critical texts, stemming from performances and live art practised and presented across Berlin and beyond.
Stream is not intended as a publication for reviews. Rather, we come together as an open group of people sharing the desire to write; we commit to a regular frequency in which texts are published according to our needs and capacities. We keep everything as simple and as open as possible: the core is writing live art. No further concept, no pre-given formats or limits, but the creation of a channel, serving the stream.
We have initiated Stream in these times when live art is not as accessible as it usually is – “live” in this present situation sparks questions of absence, memory and the future, and writing is being rediscovered as a medium that carries over distance.
