Workshop: Performative Strategies in Contemporary Art

Andrés Galeano

Festivals: M:ST 7 Biennial | September 26 - October 11, 2014.

Presented in collaboration with EMMEDIA

This workshop aims to re-think the basic elements of Performance Art and experiment with performativity in a wider sense and applied to different art practices. In the early 70´s Performance Art language was founded and intensively developed by some pioneers. Nowadays this artistic language has to be conceptually and aesthetically updated, redefined from its pillars and removed from an anachronistic and infertile body. How to deal with the notions of time, space, presence and action in the digital era? How to do art following a performative paradigm? How to articulate new artistic languages and formats that question and mirror more accurately the different issues of our time?
