Kembra Pfahler Schools You on Platforms and Perfectionism in New 12-Week Program

Presented by London-based art institute, CIRCA.

Punk imagineer, provocateur and performance artist Kembra Pfahler is teaming up with London-based art institute CIRCA to unveil a new project dubbed “The Manual of Action.” The initiative, set to take place over 12 weeks, will platform the artist’s creativity over a myriad of screens in Milan, Berlin, Seoul and on the Piccadilly Lights in London. Appearing at 8:24 p.m. each evening, Pfahler will present a 12-step program addressing themes of availablism, classism, perfectionism and more with the aim to inspire people to become “their own kind of artist.”

Curated by Josef O’Connor, the program will be taught verbally by the artist herself at the intersection of classroom and sculpture. This unique screen-based format intends to create a sense of community between the artist and audience with acute focus in presence and participation. The classes range from “Get Hitched: fall in love with your own artistic ideas,”  and “Gothletics: Doing movement but without having the right outfit” to “Dead-line: slow down. a deadline is never the end.”

On the inspiration for “The Manual of Action,” Pfahler shares in a press release, “I don’t have a career. I have a life and it’s fun to share things we learn or discover. That’s where art serves its greatest purpose. I want ‘The Manual of Action’ to remind people to celebrate their process and not worry about having an artistic block because I don’t feel like that exists.”

In support of the 12-week program, CIRCA will also unveil a limited collection of the artist’s Sit-Ins painted, butt prints. The “The Manual of Action” will run from April 8 to June 30 with additional information available on CIRCA’s website.
