Performances
Initiating the upcoming group show ‘ABJECTS’ at Import Projects, Paul Kneale will be outsourcing a series of ‘Open Source’ performances.

For more than 40 years the Soviet Red Army was stationed in the former GDR and for a short while also in the Eastern parts of Germany after the Wall was torn down.
