Performing Borders Study Room Guide

We are very pleased to announce a new Study Room Guide created and devised by Alessandra Cianetti entitled Performing Borders: A Study Room Guide on physical and conceptual borders within Live Art.

This Guide explores the notion of border in relation to Live Art and the works of experimental artists that have been addressing issues around physical borders, with a special focus on the current European situation and its multiple crises. 

The Guide includes a theoretical introduction on the relation between Live Art and social sciences’ border theories; a focus on how practitioners are responding to the current shifting European border landscapes through a series of interviews; and a list of resources on the theoretical notion of border, Live Art, and Europe available in LADA’s Study Room. 

Performing Borders: A Study Room Guide on physical and conceptual borders within Live Art can be downloaded as a pdf or viewed in person in the LADA Study Room.  

Study Room Guides aim to help navigate users through LADA’s Study Room, a free, open access research facility used by artists, students, curators, academics and other arts professionals. The idea is to enable Study Room users to experience the materials in a new way and highlight materials that they may not have otherwise come across.
