Avant-Garde Dating

AVANT-GARDE DATING is an experimental dating service investigating issues associated with contemporary relationships.Right now, AVANT-GARDE DATING is selecting individuals to be matched in carefully chosen couples. The most innovative applicants among these couples will receive an exhibition in Berlin, Germany during the Art Forum (Sep-Oct) 2007. To apply for the AVANT-GARDE DATING experience, you must request what sort of person you would like to meet. In your application, you should explain how this new relationship will explore the conventions of monogamous love, challenge the idea of artistic collaboration and/or explore one of the other numerous stereotypes of human pairing. Based on this information, the Dating Board will match you with another artist somewhere in the world. Out of everyone matched, three outstanding “couples” will each be rewarded a 1-week exhibition in Berlin to further explore the concept of human partnering. During their stay in Berlin, the couple will be living together in the exhibition space.Tanja Ostojic, Raul Zamudio and Karen D. Peters make up the Dating Board matching and selecting all artists in collaboration with Wooloo Productions. For application and more info. about Wooloo Productions and projects go here:
