artists from Germany, the UK, France, Poland, Bolivia, Bosnia, Canada, Korea, Denmark, the United States, Austria, Indonesia, Greece, Holland, Egypt, Syria, Japan, Hong Kong and Israel collaborate to create a two day event of dynamic performance actions and exhibitions appealing to a wide audience. The primary artwork is a 230 sq metre sculpted frame of scaffolding which provides the central framework for artists to collaborate. The scaffolding serves as a backdrop for performers, audience, and ideas, enhancing the space with a dramatic landscape of changing levels, platforms and transitional areas. During the two-day programme the audience will witness non-stop creativity; performers and visitors alike become part of the show, by occupying and experiencing the space and the events held within it.

Event strategies: „mixed-interdisciplinary event“, international and expanding cultural event on tour through European countries with contemporary, Experimental music, Classical music, Sound Installation, Fashion, Poetry, Dance and Theatre, Film and Projection, Performance Art, Interactive Live Art, Live Music and Projection
The idea of event is based on the interactive presence of the spectator. The artwork exists and unfolds in real time with an understanding for a three-dimensional and separate object, in this case, a scaffolding structure. The nature of scaffolding is transitive; it will always exist with the implications of its 'temporary' nature. The scaffolding, within an interior space (the gallery or site-in-situ) represents a state of in-between, denoting the absence of beginnings and endings. Scaffolding, the sculpture of transit station dominates the space with its hulking, static presence throughout each of the events.

After the two-day event a series of one-off workshops will take place for the benefit of audiences and members of the public in general. The workshops will be co-ordinated by artistic director Dagmar Glausnitzer-Smith and will be devised by performers, artists and musicians involved in transit station.

Classes will include contemporary dance, contact improvisation, performance art and physical theatre as well as approaches to technical innovation in film editing techniques and experimental music.

The public, students & professors of RKDK, and Artists are invited to an open, informal, practical and theoretical exchange 4 - 9 pm at the RKDK Festsalen.
Talks, Interviews, Artists' Presentations, Group Discussions and Practical Workshops take place in three areas within the scaffolding system simultaneously.

An opportunity to meet with transit station artists to reflect & evaluate and to share experiences of the transit station week-end, to contextualize and to promote theoretical thought processes around the idea of 'exhibition as event'.

Building a dynamic & collaborative international artists’ community

transit station aims to encourage live art and performance art through the presentation of international events of high calibre, bringing together artists from various cultures to explore the boundaries, creative potential and collaborative strengths embodied in a highly professional and on-going network of innovative arts practice. We want to further public knowledge of diverse art forms through lively encounters with a wide audience through Europe.

“What makes transit station so unique is its, concentration on building and sustaining a, healthy network of artists and artist-led, initiatives across Europe.”
Juliana Capes – AN Magazine

“I found transit station Berlin 2005, really exciting because I met,
listened to, viewed, experienced, and worked with other international artists.
It was especially wonderful, to have some lovely feedback on my own work,
and to be asked by others, if I would like to work with them in the future…”
(Participating musician/composer Rupert Cheek)

transit station enables:
•Cultural exchange between European Countries
•Cutting-edge creative practice
•Innovations in new technology and the contemporary arts
•International networking for Scandinavian artists, Scottish artists & arts professionals and website representation
•An accessible platform between emerging and professional artists
•A model for interdisciplinary collaborations between institutions in the public & private sectors, demonstrating the improved possibilities for live art development, performance art research engendered by skills & resources of artists, curators & project partners when allied to wider needs in the creative sector.

transit station Director Dagmar I. Glausnitzer-Smith;

View videos of her performances (London, Paris, Jerxheim, ...)

"The process of artistic activities hides the question about reality in the background. Materials determine each time anew the search for the unknown and unconventional perspectives, which seem to detonate the accustomed peripheries of definitions of reality. Language and artistic practice here open the space between two poles of the approach. The choice of medium, whether photography, video, painting, performance art or Installation remains open and occupies the moment of the creative action itself. In order to free the intuition, it is necessary to exercise self-awareness and generosity for the positions in the world of perceptions."
