POINTS OF CONVERGENCE: ALTERNATIVE VIEWS ON PERFORMANCE

  • POINTS OF CONVERGENCE: ALTERNATIVE VIEWS ON PERFORMANCE

Performance enters into multiple dialogues with art, new media, politics, and the social sphere as a whole.

Always happening in the here and now, and yet implicating past and future, performance is a practice open to the unknown, constantly questioning its own subjects, materials, and languages. As a result, it often best reflects the dynamic character of contemporary art and contemporaneity in the broadest sense of the word.

Points of Convergence: Alternative Views on Performance explores these ideas, potentials, and capacities of performance, stimulating new discussion between theorists and practitioners on the genealogies of performance, on unexpected lines of influence, and on off-center historiographies.
