All true live is meeting.Meeting does not lay in time and space, but space and time lay in meeting.
Martin Buber


B.M. is the name for a kind of cooperation between a few European performance- and theatre-artists.  They do not appear as a group, do not write episodes together, no themes.

B.M. is not a property as a principle.  By that it is guaranteed that the performances have many different starting points.  The impulse can occur through each member or guest.

B.M. is a happening condition in which a number of artists demonstrate their performances in parallel to one-another in one certain room and one certain time.  These parallel performances are not created episodes, not stories and therefore B.M. must not define itself as a group.

B.M. is an art idea, is a chosen relationship beyond cultural limits, an International idea.

B.M. makes it possible for the artist to feel himself in the space, to adjust himself to begin and to end an act, to present his repertoire to the full effect and to put it at one’s disposal.  Being as presence.  In the performance the “typical presence” of the artist and his handling is the main reason for the meeting and the group.

B.M. turns the perception of “Conceptual Art” fon its head.  A synthesis is not to be draw, for B.M. is exclusively an event.  In the performance, a hidden hope is expressed immediately.  The person in dialogue with his partner vanishes and the narcissist, a technical, a news-media oriented person appears.  This public spinted presence concentrates on the  immaterial which is conveyed in performance.

B.M. connects time as a formed event with elementary presence. In the performance, objects (helpful objects) become performers of the same value.

B.M. is a principle of ethnical and cultural dimensions that express themselves in pictures behind pictures beyond the picture.  This is the space in between that has to be built.

B.M. is a principle of attention investigating through.  In performance attention does not take place as an obvious meditation but as the mean which chooses the 'rightness' from a variety of possibilities which inicates inner awareness.

B.M. knows that only absolute solitude creates concentrated togetherness.

B.M. creates the paradox that what now exists, does not exist.  The performance shows how certain experiences and perceptions are not upheld.  “not repeating presence for it never will become present.” The performance represents an event which sketches the contact as a model of a social meeting.  During and after the performance this sketch will be rejected and will outline itself as an event.

B.M. is performative.  Performance as a human action points to effect through transmission. It is analogical. Performance offeres different established values, but having entered the history of ritual, performance is beyond reach.

B.M. is non-communicative in the sense of language, is situated prior to language, is a kind of spiritual embarrassment.

B.M. shows as principle that everything is possible and therefore reduces knowledge about what to do to a minimum.  The immaterial centre of the performance is the common knowledge: that in the in between-the-people and the objects lays the tone, the temperature, frequency, the near and the far

B.M.  is a project in relation to the project "Anthropognostic Dishes".
