Last year's letter
International women's day 2016
Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for Berlin.
Dear friends and colleagues,
On coming Tuesday (8th March 2016) – on the International Women’s Day -Kirsten Palz and Susanne Kohler will host this year’s Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for Berlin.
We will together on our laptops develop Wikipedia entries for women to be found on Wikipedia.
The idea is that we teach you how to be an editor of Wikipedia and that we all finish an entry on the night of the International Women's Day. 
The aim is to finish the entry that far that it can be published. Additional information can obviously be added later. For the ones of you who can find time beforehand, it would be great that you are already having an own account and editor-name. We are also encouraging participants to work in pairs on this evening and help each other.
Please come and join us on Tuesday, 8th March, 18.00 hours, at Sonntags-Club e. V., Greifenhagener Str. 28, 10437 Berlin
There are only 15 places – so please RSVP to kohlers.mail@gmail.com or kp@kirsten-palz.de
Please bring with you a laptop, charger and ideas or even better a contribution to WIKI that you would like to load up to the web.
Drinks are avaible at the bar and we will serve soup.
Kirsten and Susanne

Art+Feminism is a rhizomatic campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage female editorship. Last year, over 1,500 participants joined Art+Feminism’s second annual Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at The Museum of Modern Art in New York and more than 75 satellite events around the world, resulting in the creation of nearly 400 new pages and significant improvements to 500 articles on Wikipedia—including articles about female artists, feminist artistic movements, and feminist scholarship. 

To do;
Upcoming works will be on computerprogramming and surveillance.

Jeg er kommet til den konklusion, at mit arbejde skal underlægges flere selvdeterminerede systemer og mere afgrænsning. Jeg dropper videodokumentation, - det er en misforståelse at en performance optaget med videokamera udsiger noget om det givne rum, det narrative forløb og mødet der skabtes under en performance. En dokumentation af en eksisterende performance er i mine øjne intet kunstnerisk værk. Jeg ønsker af denne grund ikke videomateriale til at cirkulere, hverken på nettet, i samlinger eller i private hænder. Det er forbandet svært at sikre sig et niveau i de sociale medier. Overvejer at droppe performance af samme grund, men muligvis fortryder jeg det om tyve år.

The show in Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai, will continue to Bejing.

MOLTO, (2011) is set up in a launderette in Turin and exploits an original curatorial modality. The idea, developed by Christian Frosi, Renato Leotta and Diego Perrone, is to “mount” a two-dimensional exhibition, entirely printed on a sheet, an exhibition where the works are paged by a software, according to the criteria formulated by the curators, but leaving plenty of room to the programme work and, necessarily, to chance. The chosen works by
Rivane Neuenschwander, Knut Henrik Henriksen and Kirsten Palz is proposed by curator Caroline Eggel.

MOLTO was shown 2011 at Artissima, Turin.

The performance ‘Sculpture for friends’ asked all guests to stand inside the garage-structure constituting the architectural space of Ozean. The route around the structure was timely documented by me beating various found materials and objects towards the three metallic walls and the one wood wall while passing. The large metallic plates of the original 5 garages were hereby altered into a responsive sensor for movement - and a audio depiction of sculptural space.
