Deadline: September 6, 2021
Online Application: https://ecc-performanceart.eu/archivesanddocumentation
Fee to Participate or Apply: EUR 175
Description Of Opportunity:
This course examines how the time-and site-specific experience of performance art is translated into physical material with sustainability. It investigates into the relation of physical remains to ephemeral artistic practice, their meaning for the inscription into history, and ways of use for artists, scholars, and curators.
The course presents various theories related to the concept of the archive, modes of documentation ranging from traditional to contemporary, as well as examples of use of archival material in artistic and exhibition practice. Students will consider how documenting strategies are changing in relation to new technologies and media and what the implications are for the concept of the “archive”.
This course is aimed both at practicing performance artists seeking to gather insights into historical precedents as well as modes of documentation and archiving practice relevant to contemporary practice, and scholars/curators who wish to explore theories related to the archive and learn about ways how to use documentation in their scholarly or exhibition work.
