Call for Application | PANic 3 - Performance as Documentation
Who performs (live) is inevitably confronted with the issue of documentation. Still, photography and video, are the main mediums in terms of the documentation of live performances. However, shortcomings result in the translation of the live event to another medium, whether digital or analog type. The complexity of various performances can not just be preserved by saving the visual and auditory moments. Therefore, many artists understand the documentation not only as a preservation of a past event, but give a new and important meaning to the documentation itself. Exactly at this point, our interest starts. If the circuit of documentation is not stopped in the need for preservation, but gets into a self-sufficient process, the documentation becomes the protagonist and the protagonist will turn into another performer. Either the performative work is inseparable from its documentation - or the documentation is an independent part that is able to create a new presence. For the purposes of the One-Night-Show „PANic 3 - Performance as Documentation“ organized by the Vienna Performance Art Network (PAN Vienna) we are looking for live performances, which
1. transform theories on documentation of performance artistically.
2. use a true or fictional narrative to represent their performance.
3. have the issue of documentation as a necessity or contingency as a part of the performance.
Four performances will presented during the One-night-show „PANic 3 - Performance as
Documentation“ in September 2011 in Vienna. Artist Remuneration, travel allowance and
accommodation will be paid.
Please send your proposals incl. 2-3 work samples till July 5th by email to:
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
