A Study Room Guide in response to a Study Room Gathering about the state of the institution and its alternatives for (and as) Live Art. We live in a time when many long-standing institutions are in a state of crisis, and precarity is becoming a normalized condition for vast swathes of the population. What kind of stance can a radical politics take towards institutions in these times? This Guide looks at artists’ projects that engage with institutions, both critically and creatively, and considers how performance practice has engaged and challenged institutions in recent years.
