How To Prevent The Apocalypse With Performance Art and The Art of Not Being There

SQUID, who participated in the LIVE ART LIVE BLOG launch event in 2011, have released a text we wrote about 2012′s installment of our project 2020: A Performance Time-Machine. The text is entitled How To Prevent The Apocalypse With Performance Art and can be read or downloaded here. And another text more closely related to the LIVE ART LIVE BLOG will also be published soon – the title is Die Kunst des Nicht-da-Seins, which is German for The Art of Not Being There, and in this text we take the BLOG as a starting point for revisiting the debate around performance and documentation:In what ways is a specific economics of performance art articulated in the relation of performance and documentation? How can we take part in performance work without having been there? How can performance be understood as the product of a collective process in which those not present at the live event can participate? The text will be included in the forthcoming book Das Forschen aller, edited by Sibylle Peters. There is a book launch on 15 May 2013 at Hafencity Universit├Ąt Hamburg,on the occassion of Sibylle’s inaugural lecture, from which we will also be liveblogging.
