The Independent Performance Group (IPG) was formed in 2003-2007 founded by Marina Abramovic, made up of a group of performance artists comprised mainly of past students, who continued to work closely with Abramovic professionally. The group blurred the lines between curator and artist, museum and arts organization. During its active years, the group presented various performance series and participated in a number of workshops. This reel is drawn from the archives of IPG and shows a series of works from an exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum.
