Institute for Provocation (IFP) is a Beijing-based independent workspace for artists, architects and researchers founded by Chen Shuyu and Els Silvrants-Barclay in 2010. IFP grew out of Theatre in Motion, set-up by Els Silvrants-Barclay in 2005.
IFP hosts international residencies and research projects, organises workshops, talks and exhibitions. Since 2017 IFP is led by a collective consisting of architect/editor Chen Shuyu, art critic Song Yi and artist Hu Wei. Max Gerthel, You Mi and Els Silvrants-Barclay act as advisors.
