Speakers Series – BARBARA CLAUSEN : ON CURATING PERFORMANCE

May 4, 2011 from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
CCS Bard Seminar Room 1

Performance art´s recent and ongoing popularity, institutionalization, and historicization challenges the representational politics of the live and the mediated within the exhibition context, posing a range of questions for artists and curators alike. How can the historical context of past performances be re-presented within an exhibition? Or, can an exhibition function as a pro-scenium setting and as an installation at the same time? And what does it mean to collect performance art? Are just a few of the many questions that shape the codependent relationship between performance art and the institutional art world.
