Playing TEA PARTY is a collective exercise to talk about Performance Art by the means of a Performance. Taking the shape of a round-table discussion, it will bring together archivists, researchers, art historians and curators who are involved in the production, distribution, collection, documentation and conservation of performance art. Utilising the format of a live broadcast, the participants will revisit, reflect and simultaneously act out questions about the very nature of Performance Art within the Digital Age.
How do we define Performance Art? How do we draw parallels with other experiential/durational/ephemeral/relational/time-based works? How do we understand performance art’s inter/cross-disciplinary nature in the context of contemporary art? How do we look at live-performance in comparison to performance-for-the-camera? What are the parallels between real and the representational? Do we always start from the beginning (Dadaism or Pollock or happenings)? What are the parallels between performance art and performing arts (dance and theatre)? How does the institutionalisation of performance art alter the works? What is the significance of the document/residue of a performance? What is the role of the participant? What is the role of the witness?
Participants include: Rabbya Naseer, Acatia Finbow, Christian Luebbert, Eva Bentcheva, Thomas Berghuis, Mary Ann Hushlak and Rose Lejeune.
