Tatlin’s Whisper #6: Havana version

Artist/Author: Tania Bruguera | Reference: D1534 | Type: DVD

Tatlin’s Whisper #6 (Havana version was a participative action at the central courtyard of the Wifredo Lam Centre (the institution that organizes the Havana Biennial). A stage with a podium, two microphones, and a huge golden-brown curtain as a background were placed at one end. The set was reminiscent of the staple set used by Fidel Castro for his speeches. The microphones were connected to an amplifier with speakers, one of them at the building’s entrance, pointing to the street. Two actors, a woman and a man dressed in Cuban military uniforms, stood at each side of the podium. The woman had a white dove in her hands. Admission to the event was free, but the space was filled with people from the Cuban art world, mainly young artists, students, writers, and Cuban and international visitors to the Biennial. Two handed disposable cameras were handed out to the public by Bruguera to document the event. Then people were summoned to speak their minds on the podium for one minute. In other art contexts this would not have any special relevance. In Cuba, it was an historic event: for the first time in half a century a free public tribune was allowed for people to express their ideas.This documentation has been presented with permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010.

Throwing the Body into the Fight

Artist/Author: Raimund Hoghe | Reference: D1535 | Type: DVD

With post-show discussion.“Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote of throwing the body into the fight. These words inspired me to go on stage. Other inspirations are the reality around me, the time in which I live, my memories of history, people, images, feelings and the power and beauty of music and the confrontation with one’s own body which, in my case, does not correspond with conventional ideals of beauty. To see bodies on stage that do not comply with the norm is important – not only with regard to history but also with regard to present developments, which are leading humans to the status of design objects. On the question of success: it is important to be able to work and to go your own way – with or without success. I simply do what I have to do.“www.raimundhoghe.comThis documentation has since been presented with the permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010.

This Is Performance Art: Performed Sculpture and Dance

Artist/Author: Mel Brimfield | Reference: D1485 | Type: DVD

Also see P1517 and P1518This Is Performance Art: Performed Sculpture and Dance8th April 2010 – 06 June 2010Camden Arts Centre, co-commissioned by the Yorkshire Sculpture ParkAlso presented as part of Performance Matters: Performing IdeaPerformance Lecture Archive at Whitechapel GalleryMel Brimfield’s residency, This is Performance Art, will be a historical reappraisal of performance art of the 20th Century. Through a series of discussions, documentary research, re-enactments and live performance she will undertake an examination of what can be said to constitute the ontology of ‘live art’ within current discourse. This research will form the basis for a documentary film, the first in a series, charting the new narrative through the fragmented and often unreliable documentary record of this elusive art form. The final film will be screened in the Artists’ Studio at Camden Arts Centre at the culmination of the residency along side a series of live performances and re-enactments. Mel Brimfield’s complex practice takes a skewed and tangled romp through the already vexed historiography of performance art, simultaneously revealing and inventing a rich history of collaboration between artists, dancers, theatre makers, political activists and comedians. Meticulously drawn and painted posters and programmes for fictional interdisciplinary cabarets, together with costumes and props, are produced alongside documentary-style films and live works that playfully associate performance art with most significant cultural developments of the last 100 years.Following the residency, the next phase of This is Performance Art will be shown at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2011.The final performance will take place three times on 02 JuneThis documentation has since been presented with the permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010.

The Last Performance (A Lecture)

Artist/Author: Jerome Bel | Reference: D1456 | Type: DVD

“Invited at the same time by the Hebbel Theatre in Berlin, the Tanz-Quartier in Vienna and the Centre National de la Danse in Paris to perform The Last Performance (D0624) I decided, instead of presenting the piece, to make a lecture about its issues. I had the feeling that this difficult piece had not been really understood. Maybe the piece was bad. But I believe that the issues of this piece were relevant, which is why I would like to change my medium and to use the tool of the lecture to try to articulate better the stakes of The Last Performance. I will re-contextualise the piece in its theoretical level through the texts of Roland Barthes and Peggy Phelan and in my artistic situation at that time.”Jérôme Bel www.jeromebel.fr This documentation has since been presented with the permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010.
