Jeremiah Day performs on three occasions over the course of the exhibition, in each instance taking a slightly different approach that shifts between a direct response to the installation and environment, and bringing in his own material as a counterpoint.

The first performance draws upon the history of the short lived "American Anti-Imperialist League" as the basis for investigating and evoking the war and anti-war centres of Kaiserslautern, Germany. Day is accompanied by Bart de Kroon, who frequently collaborates with him as guitarist and dramaturge.

Jeremiah Day’s practice integrates photography, music, speech and improvised movement performance methods into an idiosyncratic and personal mode of description. The historical and the political are reflected through embodiment, incarnation and encounters with sites of memory.

Jeremiah Day (USA, 1974) studied art at the University of California, Los Angeles and the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam. He was also a fellow at the graduate school of the Berlin University of the Arts (2015–2016). In 2017, Day received a doctorate from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He has frequently collaborated with his former mentor Simone Forti, a pioneer of postmodern dance, and the writer Fred Dewey. Day’s installations, performances and lectures have recently been on view at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2017); the Museum of Modern Art Warsaw (solo, 2016); the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow (solo, 2016); the Centre Pompidou, Paris (2014); SALT Galata, Istanbul (solo, 2014); the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2012); and the Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2009).

Bart de Kroon is a musician currently based in Utrecht, Netherlands. He holds degrees in Psychology and Genocide Studies.
