The focus of the exhibition “Artists & Agents” is on the files that various secret services in Eastern Europe and beyond have created on performance artists from the 1960s to the 1990s – in order to be able to “infiltrate” them all the better and “liquidate” them from within. For this, however, they had to become performance artists themselves. In addition to the documentation of the exhibition, the magazine contains an introduction by the curators Inke Arns, Kata Krasznahorkai und Sylvia Sasse as well as an extensive glossary explaining in particular the terms used by the secret services.
