Announcement: The End of The Knowers & PERFORM- The Theatrical Situation (Norway)

February 5th, 2010

The workshop platform presents young artists from any art- discipline. Despite of that they work with different mediums and diverse content, they share a heightened awareness and mutual interest in the actual situation where the artwork/performance is situated. That is the performative aspect of the artwork/performance and the presentation of it. Therefore they pay special attention to how the situation is constructed, how it is embedded in the real as well how it produces realities. This being so these artists takes the ambivalent and complex role of the spectator, the theatrical situation in an actual or a metaphorical way, under consideration. Furthermore the performative perspective informs these situations on a broader cultural, social understanding and thus economical and political dimensions resonate through them. Finally there is no interest in pointing out a general performative strategy as such, but rather use it as a tool to inform and challenge the participants own practices as well at looking at the particular tactics of each artists in the workshop.

The workshop platform will be staged as a three day event. The workshop is self- organized by the participants. The public program consists of performances by the participants and public lectures by invited guests………–>
