Public Movement is a performative research body that investigates and stages political actions in public spaces. The movement explores the political and aesthetic possibilities residing in a group of people acting together. It studies and creates public choreographies, forms of social order, overt and covert rituals.

Transeuropa 2017 and CentroCentro invite Public Movement to Madrid because of their unique performances at the intersection of research and action. Public Movement is interested “in the ways that information moves and is organized according to power”. One of their last performances took place last year in Guggenheim Museum, New York.

Debriefing Session I at Transeuropa:
Public Movement invites visitors for a one-on-one performance in a secret location within CentroCentro. During a 20 minutes meeting, a Public Movement Agents delivers an account of behind the scene negotiation that took place with funding entities , activists, and cultural institutions during the preparation of a project that binds art and politics in New York. The performance  reflects about the performative relationship between nation-states and their cultural institutions.
