Egl? Budvytyt? is an artist lives and works in Amsterdam, but will soon move to Paris.

P for Performance is part of an ongoing project by Maja Bekan, entitled Secret Powers for Identity, Security and Self-respect in Troubling Times. The performative events aim to be an open platform for investigation and to critically engage into the investigation of the artist’s role as a producer and advertiser. One might take various roles – as a performer, participant or spectator in order to contribute to this research. The events envision an encounter of the guests among each other and with the works (performances, imagery/objects, lectures and talks). The participants of this enquiry are invited to take over different positions: whether one is a moderator, explorer, presenter or a visitor to the place.
