Op zaterdag 8 december 2012 worden op verschillende plekken in Den Haag performances uitgevoerd die zich verhouden tot recente en minder recente performances van bijvoorbeeld Francis Alÿs en Vito Acconi. Het zijn acties in en met de stedelijke omgeving. Wie door de stad loopt kan gevolgd worden, kan een grote pijl voorbij zien komen, ziet misschien mensen achteruit lopen, een jongen in het water vallen of mensen onnadenkend de straten poetsen.

De Nederlandse architect Anne Holtrop organiseert met zijn studenten van het Sandberg Instituut, Studio for Immediate Spaces, in Den Haag het project Stad School. Daarbij hernemen, vernieuwen en onderzoeken zij historische stadsperformances en kijken zij hoe die zich verhouden tot het nu en de huidige situatie van de stad Den Haag. Voor het vastleggen van deze experimenten wordt samengewerkt met The One Minutes Foundation. De resultaten worden vertoond tijdens de finissage van Expanded Performance bij Stroom Den Haag op zondag 16 december 2012.

Voorbeelden van historische performances
The Situationists drifted randomly through the city following their moods; Douglas Huebler arbitrarily picked an area on a map and asked people to walk there and make photos whenever they thought of some words he had given them; Gordon Matta-Clark searched for 'gutterspaces', unusable small slivers of land in between building sites, that were not even accessible in some cases; Rirkrit Tiravanija converted his house and its interior into a museum that he declared to be open 24/7, people were invited to stay there and use the space in any way they liked; Lara Almarcequi searched, documented and protected wastelands because nothing specific is happening there, thus everything could happen; Stalker occupies derelict pieces of land with objects in order to create new perspectives; Hamish Fulton declared himself a walking artist; Richard Long walked on a grass field repeatedly forwards and backwards on the same line; On Kawara recorded his daily walk on a map; Paulien Oltheten placed small objects next to people sitting on a park bench in order to make them more interesting (like footnotes in a text); Adrian Piper travelled in a bus through New York with a towel stuffed in her mouth; Bas Jan Ader biked into a canal; John Baldessari photographed the back of all the trucks he passed while driving from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara; Stanley Brouwn asked people to show him the way by asking them to draw a map on a sheet of paper; Daniel Buren pasted single, rectangular sheets of green and white striped paper on 200 billboards and surfaces throughout Paris; Mierle Laderman Ukeles cleaned the pedestrian pathways with a mob; Vito Acconci followed people on the street regardless of how far they travelled, until they reached a private place .....
