HopArt Tour

A protest on the grand scheme of things


Minister of Art started the lifelong performance HopArt in 2002 and it has been a continiuum project ever since. Jumps has been carried out in performances around the world courtesy of Ministry of Art & Jump.


To go jump in the lake is the ultimate protest. Every HopArt jump is performed as a protest against the scheme of things. A protest list is presented and the audience can list things they would like to protest against. When the jump is carried out the problems are solved.


HopArt has also been interpreted as a reflection over the scape-goat phenomena. In fact the Minister has been referred to as the jumping Jesus...
