Performance Saga Presents: Dead Certainties About Performance Art History

with
Boris Nieslony, Verena Kuni, Christopher Hewitt
at Kaskadenkondensator, Werkraum Warteck pp, Burgweg 7, 4058 Basel

Saturday, 6 October 2012
7 pm
Lecture Christopher Hewitt, «Concepts of Documentation - Conceptual Approaches To The Action Of Documentation» (english)

Sunday, 7 October 2012
starting 11 am
Boris Nieslony, «How Performance Enters My Life» (German)
starting 1 pm
Verena Kuni, «Staub sammeln. Zeit beugen.» (German)
starting 3 pm
Christopher Hewitt, «Performance Art Jukebox» (English)

Boris Nieslony, Verena Kuni and Christopher Hewitt are invited to talk as long as they like, interrupted only by their physical needs. Their actions and talks take place in three different spaces at the same time. This means: three different views are developed, each within its own space. The public is free to enter and leave. Switching, zapping or staying in or between the parallel actions is expected of the visitor.

The event is organised in cooperation with Kaskadenkondensator, TanzRaum and Cirqu'enflex. It receives financial support by the Kulturpauschale Basel-Stadt.
