“Moments. A History of Performance in 10 Acts” (March 8–April 29, 2012) at ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art is an international live exhibition on the history of art performance in dance and fine art. As an exhibition ‘in progress’, the project shows and develops new formats of museal presentation of live acts.

The exhibition begins on March 8, 2012 in an empty exhibition space with the first phase “Act − Stage and Display” in which the artists of the "heroic" performance generation of the 1960s and 1970s will themselves be installing the exhibition before the public. Public discussions, panel discussions and reenactments will be held alongside the installation. The first phase closes with the actual opening of the exhibition on March 17. The performance "Practice Makes a Master" by Sanja Iveković is reenacted by Sonja Pregrad as part of the opening.
