Performance Matters: Performing Idea – Performative Writing8th October 3.00-7.30pm (not 7th as stated on disk))Toynbee StudiosWith: Hélène Cixous (on video), Matthew Goulish, Adrian Heathfield and Peggy PhelanNew forms of writing on and around contemporary art and performance have emerged in recent years, alongside the emergence of the artist as cultural critic and curator. These forms of writing often problematize the notion of critical distance, deploying creative, dialogic and autobiographical strategies to engage with the multiple affects of the artwork. To what extent may critical thinking and writing be an art form? Speakers will examine the histories, limits and possibilities of the forms of ‘performative writing’, the dynamics of the performing idea.This session on Performative Writing will also comprise a preview of Trashing Performance, the second themed year of Performance Matters, with contributions from Oreet Ashery, Mel Brimfield, Gavin Butt, Dominic Johnson and Bird La Bird.
