A book on the photography of Raymond, who documented performance art in Boston for thirty years until his untimely death in 2012.
Exhibition / project programme. Tempting Failure, 17-21 July 2018.
Traces the many ways in which museums have approached performance works from the 1960s onwards, considering the unique challenges of documenting live events.
The first book to provide a collection of key writings about the process of documenting performance, focused not on questions of liveness or the artistic qualities of documents, but rather on the professional approaches to recovering, preserving and disseminating knowledge of live performance.
An international collection offering glimpses into the intimate relations inherent in finding, remembering (or imagining), and creating an archive.
The Publication follows the journey of ten collaborations, created by Co-Lab performance art program together with Savvy Contemporary Art Laboratory in Berlin.
Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer explores one of Lee Lozano's most challenging and elusive works, 'Dropout Piece'.
“a loose collection of texts, sequenced like a mixtape” and dedicated to visions of real freedom in the present. Includes: Moyra Davey on writer’s block, Walter Benjamin, and Jane Bowles Bruce Hainley channels Paloma Picasso to jot some notes on Margie Schnibbe and the “explicit.” Bifo on Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes’s Wide Shut, and the relation between irony and cynicism Paul Virilio on seascape, inertia, and the Zynthia cyclone Chris Kraus and Sylvère Lotringer on George Porcari’s ambient photography Shlomo Sand and Sylvère Lotringer on contemporary Israel, myth, and the invention of Zionism.
