Documentary evidenz

On the strength of our qualitative evaluations, we proposed establishing as extensive a document pool as possible, in order to facilitate the transcription and representation of performance art. Artefacts of performance art are the basis from which we will be able to critically read, assess, reflect on and transmit artistic performance concepts in the future. For this reason, we regard it as essential to link documentary methods and forms in performance art with discourse on the documentary in an art context in general. This will influence and inform the production, handling and assessment of performance documentations and artefacts.
