We have chosen the Extrawurst as an emblematic Dadaistic expression for this year’s approach to Burning Bär, YOUR indoor burn organized by the Berlin Burner community. In the first decades of the 20th century Dada rejected the logic, reason, and aestheticism of the capitalist society, instead expressing nonsense, irrationality and anti-bourgeois protest in their works. Hugo Ball expressed: "...art is not an end in itself ... but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in."
Thus we want to invite you to take everything related to Extrawurst with a grain of salt and see how everybody gets their own Extrawurst. We are hoping for art projects, including installations, performance, paintings, and workshops, that take a Dadaist approach.
Please submit your art project for an art grant to Berlin Burner e.V. by January 1st, 2018 in order to give us enough time to evaluate all applications. You will receive a reply by January 15.
