A joint catalogue focusing on two group exhibitions at the Künstlerhaus Graz dedicated to the examination of current performative practices in relation with the main works of historical forerunners.
Both exhibitions are united by an activating dialogical confrontation of recent, performative practices and performances dealing with the main works of historical forerunners. Throughout the respective exhibition, two to three works were added, while also parts and objects of the performances remained in the exhibition space, thus the exhibition set-up presented itself as transparent and could be experienced by the audience.
Published following the two group exhibitions at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz, Austria, “The only performances that make it all the way…” from August 22 to September 15, 2013; and “Yes, but is it performable? Investigations on the Performative Paradox”, from September 25 to November 20, 2016.
