Introduction to VERB FRAU TV
Artist Margaret Dragu, aka Verb Woman/Verb Frau, investigates contemporary performance art practice through conversations with international artists, from the new and emerging to the senior and famous. Season 1 is a collection of 15 episodes edited from VERB FRAU Live Streaming TV Broadcasts during her Big European Tour (Berlin and Belgrade), of May 2013.
These downloadable episodes may vary in technical quality by contemporary standards but their ad hoc, low-fidelity attributes are often an integral component of their production process and aesthetic design.
