Exploring television, Live Art, and the relationship between binge watching and durational/endurance performance
Deadline for applications: 5pm, Mon 18 June
This DIY is supported by KARST
FUCK PERFORMANCE ART, GIMME MY BOXSET is about High, Low and Live Art, the influence of television on how we understand/perceive live art, and the relationship between the phenomenon of binge watching and durational/endurance performance.
Over one weekend, up to 12 artists will introduce each other to a boxset of their choice, engaging one-to-one in a binge of different shows, framed by reflective conversations and meals which get artists talking about how they watch tv, how they might watch tv with audiences, the biases against tv/pop culture inside the world of art, and the accessibility of either Live Art or television.
While all artists are welcomed, we are particularly interested in artists with a relationship to fandom, television, and/or durational/endurance performance, and those who work in one-to-one performance. We are also particularly interested in those who are interested in mental health and self/peer-care strategies. While there are a number of in-roads for the workshop – and would love for it to be meaningful to people outside of the development of BINGE, these would be the first themes/practice areas we believe are relevant.
Tell us about your tv / binge watching habits. We are interested less in high theory related to mass media and binge and the human experience and more interested in people who really know how to watch tv, have specific ways they think about their own habits, and who can talk clearly about what they do and why.
In the online application, we ask:
Dates: 12 – 14 Oct 2018
Accommodation for participants will be provided.
Brian, FK and Season are all live artists that have engaged explicitly with television and/or endurance throughout their career. While they have all made work in collaboration with others, they have not yet worked together as collaborators. All three talk about television incessantly, often to the dismay of other artists.
For questions about this DIY, please contact Brian.
