« Art is action » is a project promoted by the Ministry of Culture in Spain presenting the work of international artists in the field of Performance and Site-specific Art. First edition in 2008 was curated by Bartolomé Ferrando: who gathered nine artists presenting their work over three days at the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid. Second edition, took place in 2009, curated by Marcel.lí Antúnez: where seven pieces made by nine artists over three days were presented at the Teatro Valle Inclán in Madrid.

The mobile disposition of this project over the past years is a direct symptom of how difficult it is for performance art to exist in the public space: in between and in opposition to the conservative principle of museums and the spectacularity of theaters. Probably, an old factory, not yet into the asepsis nor the amnesia, could constitute a more pertinent location. The third edition will take place between the 25th and the 31st of October 2010 at La Tabacalera in Madrid. In this occassion
