The Independent Performance Group (IPG) was formed in 2003-2007. It was founded by Marina Abramović and made up of a group of performance artists, mainly past students of Abramović, who continued to professionally and closely work with her. 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 and a collaboration Illy.
