Performing Change, a collection of interviews by artist Mathilde ter Heijne, explores the idea of open-ended, collaborative art processes and their transformative potential beyond the confines of art. Designed as an artist’s book and published in conjunction with her exhibition at the Museum für Freie Kunst in Freiburg (November 8, 2014–February 22, 2015), the book shows handwritten revisions, annotations, and drawings from contributors including voodoo priest Togbé Hounon-Hounougbo Bahounsou and priestess Mamissi DaPovi, women from the Kartal Kadın Ürünleri Pazarı (Women’s Products Market) in Istanbul, ayahuasca shaman and biologist Ulrich Meyerratken, ceremonial magic anthropologist Susan Greenwood and artists, curators and critics Sabeth Buchmann, Anselm Franke, Elke Bippus, Amy Patton, Mark Kremer, Janne Schäfer, and Kristine Agergaard, with a preface interview by Museum für Freie Kunst curators Christine Litz and Sophia Trollmann.
