Friction 2014 will highlight how performance art has grown out of conflict and war in Europe since World War II. Performance artists have continued to work underground, managing to keep out of the reach of the political oppression of authorities in many areas such as Poland, Belarus, and many countries in the Balkans. Artists find new ways to communicate with their public when the structure supporting performance spaces, galleries and concert halls collapses in times of conflict. The new Europe needed a new type of art to reflect its own age, and in response, performance art became the aggressive penniless outsider that always told the truth. It had nothing to lose.

The first biennial Frictions International Performance Festival was held in Uppsala in 2006, in close collaboration between Uppsala Art Museum and the association Mon no Kai as well as many international performance artists. SU-EN, an internationally active choreographer based in Uppsala, is curator of the festival and invites many international and Sweden-based artists to produce their own repertoire and new work.
