Martha Wilson Sourcebook: 40 Years of Reconsidering Performance, Feminism, Alternative Spaces

Artist/Author: Martha Wilson | Editor: Martha Wilson | Reference: P2125 | ISBN: 978-0-916365-85-1 | Type: Publication

Martha Wilson Sourcebook is the first in a new publication series by ICI that offers a fresh perspective on social, political, and cultural issues impacting artists’ practices. Each compendium is comprised of articles, letters, newspaper cuttings, extracts from books, and images that an artist selects from their own archive and annotates with personal commentaries on the themes that arise. By using this subjective approach as a lens through which to rediscover pivotal debates in art and reconsider seminal texts, as well as to introduce little-known or out-of-print material, the Sourcebook series places emphasis on the histories and theories that have had a formative influence on an artist’s thought process.

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. The archive looked at examples of the performance lecture as a form of artistic and critical expression and its potential to address a broad range of cultural issues and philosophical ideas. This item is part of the Study Room Guide On shit, piss, blood, sweat and tears by Lois Keidan (P2195)
