Other contact information: Performing Arts Forum is an international residency for the professionals and not-yet-professionals in the field of performing arts, visual art, music, film, literature, new media, theory and cultural production, who seek to research and determine their own conditions of work.
PAF is for people who can motorize their own artistic and knowledge production, not only responding to the opportunities given by the institutional market.
Initiated and run by artists, theoreticians, practitioners and activists themselves,
PAF is a user-created informal institution. It is a platform for anyone who wants to expand possibilities and interests in his/her own working practice.
PAF is located in a former convent school (6.400 m2), on a 1.2 hectare garden in the village of St. Erme, France, approximately 130km northeast of Paris.
PAF is:
– a forum for producing knowledge in critical exchange and ongoing discursive practice
– a place for temporary autonomy and full focus on work
– a tool-machine where one can work on developing methods and procedures, not necessarily driven toward a product
– a place for experimenting with other than known modes of production and organization of work, e.g. open source production
- a place for self-education
