Frame it. On the Relation between Action and Document. Exhibition, lecture, and discussion.


Discussion round with Pascale Grau, Olivia Jaques (moderation), Sabine Marte, Romy Rüegger, and Angela Strohberger

The question of the possibilities to archive and document performance informs the thematic framework of this evening. The Kunstraum Niederoesterreich is planning an archive for performance art. Besides practical considerations, there are the issues of the transmission and translation of the medium and the adequacy of different forms of documentation: What is our motivation to lend a fragile duration to a medium whose most important quality is the brief presence in the moment it happens?

Also, the artistic works of this evening and the exhibition address the relationship between action and document.

Concept: Marlies Surtmann
Artists: Iris Dittler, Bettina Kattinger, Ana Mendes, Andrej Polukord, Sööt/Zeyringer
