With previous performances at the Minnesota Street Project in San Francisco and Fridman Gallery in New York, OPHELIA is slated for viewings in Cologne, Rome, Stuttgart, London, Berlin, and Bolivia.

San Francisco Chronicle | Ophelia returns after 400 years with new message | San Francisco | Mar 20 2018


"Ophelia is back — or maybe she never left us." The project OPHELIA curated by AKArt at Minnesota Street Project was just covered by Charles Desmarais in the San Francisco Chronicle piece “Ophelia returns after 400 years with new message.”, bringing the great attention of numerous exhibition visitors to gallery 211. He writes "Melancholy victim of love in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” Ophelia has been the inspiration for uncounted romantic paintings in the 400 years since her first appearance onstage. Now she is the subject of a new work of performance art by Nadja Verena Marcin, documented on video and presented as an installation at Minnesota Street Project through March 31."



Following the West Coast premiere of the live performance of Nadja Verena Marcin's OPHELIA, CULTURED Magazine's Anna Volpicelli spoke with the artist for the feature NADJA VERENA MARCIN’S OPHELIA GOES ON A WORLD TOUR. “Ophelia nowadays is an advocate for disassembling power structures that mislead us and the interior of humankind,” says Marcin. “The performance specifically focuses on climate change and gender inequalities and draws a comparison and/or connection between the two. To me, Ophelia, is a symbol for the oppression of our emotional and instinctive world, our knowledge and skills that are inherent and basic to humanity.”

ACTION MANUAL VOL. I | Solo at Dortmunder Kunstverein | 10 Nov - 22 Dec 2012


ACTION MANUAL Vol. I / II presents a multi-site solo exhibition from New York-based German artist Nadja Verena Marcin, currently on view at Dortmunder Kunstverein and the Orangerie of the castle Rheda. ACTION MANUAL Vol. I / II displays a body of work driven by a range of artistic strategies. From meticulously directed short films to wild guerrilla performances, Marcin’s work continuously disrupts easy resolution by answering questions with questions. For ACTION MANUAL Vol. I / II, the two institutions will highlight the multifaceted quality of Nadja Verena Marcin’s work and its exploration of possibility and the limits of action. Marcin points at the matter that goes along with every action; the fear of providing the interest feeling with belief. In these works, Marcin's actions are seemingly ir/rational, but strive to construct a situation that grounds the self in an authentic form of existence. These actions carry a selfless, constructive potential where irrational and rational can coexist in balance and harmony.

ACTION MANUAL VOL. II | Solo at Castle of Rheda | Nov 18 to Dec 16 2012


Journey to Egypt - Live Performance | November 18 2012


As the six hour live performance trip “Journey to Egypt" unfolds in a bus, 40 guests will be led to the exhibition halls of Dortmunder Kunstverein in Dortmund, the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten in Marl and the Orangerie at the castle of Rheda. The live performance goes back to an event in 2007, in which the artist went alone on a bus trip to the Sinai region, which was bombed a year earlier. The title refers to the children's' Journey to Jerusalem "and acts as a reminder for a romantic theme that has fallen by the current political situation of the Sinai into disrepute. The journey begins in the city of Cairo in the Catskills, leads to the Bedouins at the foot of Sinai and from there to a group of young Turks in West Germany, and finally to a castle with a princess and prince. It reflects upon the psychological processes of projection and faith.
