Live Action showcases performance art specifically in the public space that belongs to all of us. We are all using it daily, and as everyone have access to it, it is a place to which we all belong in one sense or another regardless of social or ethnic background, gender, education or for that matter economic situtation. It is our common ground.

For all these reasons public space is an open place that through its sole existence can be used to promote a cultural democracy where everyone can be given access to contemporary art. This is what we are doing in an ideological will to give everyone the possibility to experience the liberating qualities inherent in performance art.

Welcome to discover the works at Common Ground which will take place at Kungstorget on Saturday from 12.00 to 15.00, and at Götaplatsen / Stadsbiblioteket (City Library) on Sunday from 12.00 to 14.00.
