Why is Performistanbul Live Art Research Space (PCSAA) founded?
As a form of contemporary art practice, live process and performance art reach the large masses to increase the awareness and visibility.
Approaching the performance art as a unifying and healing power, we decided to establish a research space that will provide public access to extensive resources (both regional and international) for students, curators and researchers working with/in the field of performance and live art.
