PP Book Chain: Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy

The Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy  PP Book Chain We are really excited to see the publication of the Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy.

The idea is for individuals and groups to sign up to the chain to receive a hard copy of the Companion.  In signing up, each individual or group agrees to have the book for a…

Helsinki, June 9-12, 2021 The 5th biennial international conference on performance philosophy is hosted by the University of the Arts Helsinki and it is arranged in collaboration with the Performance Philosophy Network. Please read the Vision Statement.

HOW NOT TO MISS THE ‘MISSING’ IN THE UNIVERSE AROUND US

(Fig. i)* Smolded through ages, as a lifeless form Colorful but yet chaotic Born but yet symbiotic Caged in green lush, as a unique uniform At the stroke of creator's fulgaration Morbid smolder of chalk pours Over the meadow of mountain in scores As if planted in time, through curator’s dilation Lets take an example. On the bus route (Flixbus) from Berlin to Venice near northern Italy, there is a stretch of mountain range. One can recognize it as “mountain-like”. In effect this recognition involves an act of identification which is to see the stretch of mountain range as “mountain-like”.…

Division of Labor – Denis Beaubois

I just came across Denis Beaubois, an Australian multidisciplinary artist whose work, Currency - Division of Labor might be of interest to researchers here. It is a series of video/performance works that use the division of labor model in capitalism as a structural tool for performance. From his website: The Division of labour work explores the idea of fulfilling a role through circumstance.

It raises the question that authenticity in performance cannot be achieved through a body that is aware of its role…
