QuAR(T)antine video performance 2020
Due to the pandemic crisis of the Covid-19, any social activities have been limited and forced to change. The dynamic of cultural institutions, audiences, markets and artists are changing, and art has been challenged to move forward to find new solutions for social experiences.
In the field of performance art, this situation is challenging in its theoretical foundations, because the body has always been the central element in performance art. How to create actions without a body that is present? The pandemic is forcing us to reconsider the frames and formats of performance art.
Consequently, Performance Køkkenet has decided to make an open call to gather artists creating from their very own houses. Here you will find 42 videos from all around the world. All of them sharing their experiences, knowledge and perspectives about the current global situation.
