Collecting the Performance

The interdisciplinary Cuban artist Tania Bruguera will discuss a range of questions about her work in relation to performance and activism with Annie Fletcher (Curator Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven) and Catherine Wood (Curator Contemporary Art & Performance TATE, London).

This event is cohosted by the Van Abbemuseum and TATE, as part of the research network Collecting the Performative. This research network will examine emerging models for the conservation and documentation of artists’ performance and will draw upon the practices of dance, theatre and activism in order to identify parallels in the concept of a work and related notions of authorship, authenticity, autonomy, documentation, memory, continuity and liveness.
