This July, The Performance Agency presents a new edition of its performative boat ride Another Map to Nevada. Invited by the contemporary art centre KRONE COURONNE, the project travels to Switzerland for the first time and welcomes visitors aboard a journey across the lakes and waterways connecting Neuchâtel and Biel/Bienne. As dusk breaks in, the visitors pass by performance pieces along the shores and bridges that unfold like wondrous sceneries in the landscape. Another Map to Nevada is an assent to the fleeting moment—an invitation to look up.

Another Map to Nevada has previously been realized in Berlin and Copenhagen in collaboration with Supportico Lopez and Archivio Conz and Den Frie Udstilling and Huset Theater, respectively. It was awarded by the International Art Critics Association (AICA) in 2021. The title Another Map to Nevada is a reference to late avant-garde artist Robert Delford Brown. In 1964, he founded “The First National Church of the Exquisite Panic, Inc.” (FUNKUP for short). Of Orthodox Pagan belief, its chief deity is named WHO?—as in, “We don’t know where we’re going, but WHO? Knows!”

The Biel/Bienne edition is funded by the City of Biel/Bienne, Canton Bern, Canton Zürich, Pro Helvetia, Migros Culture Percentage, Ernst Göhner Stiftung, Ernst und Olga Gubler-Hablützel Stiftung, Fondation Bonhôte pour l'art contemporain. Special thanks to Kunsthaus Pasquart for its contribution to the project.
