Das Performancefestival „Soft Bodies“ beschäftigt sich mit den verschiedenen Positionen und Herangehensweisen innerhalb der Performancekunst. Die KünstlerInnen werden selbst zum Medium und praktizieren ihre Ideen nicht nur an sich sondern auch gemeinsam mit dem Publikum Sie arbeiten also am und mit dem lebenden Subjekt und schaffen dadurch Raum für Begegnung Performancekunst ist prozesshaft und vergänglich - Momente der Transzendenz des Experiments, der Erkenntnis oder des grandiosen Scheiterns sind möglich und erwünscht. Die Performances fanden an verschiedenen Stellen des Areals der Tabakfabrik statt. Zusätzlich fungierte die Festivalzentrale bb15 als Ort des Austausches, der Diskussion und der Präsentation bereits stattgefundener Performances.

The aim of the “Soft Bodies” Performance Art Festival is to bring together at a single location the tremendous diversity of approaches to and takes on performance art. The participating artists put their ideas into practice upon themselves and together with their audience at the same time. Thus, they work on and with the living subject which creates space for many different points of view amidst this encounter. Performance art is processual and ephemeral moments of transcendence, experimentation insight and spectacularly going down in flames are possible and desirable. The performances were staged at different locations throughout the Tabakfabrik grounds. bb15 was the festival headquarters, and also served as a setting for discussion and presentation of previously staged performances.
