Description: 

Archiving Performance explores, on one hand, the modes by which performances archive and are archived and, on the other hand, the modes by which archives perform and are performed. The three-day seminar will focus on the Portuguese artistic landscape, gathering several artists who will share their creative processes or (re-)perform works that relate to the topic. The seminar will bring together practical an theoretical perspectives, discussing artistic works alongside readings from authors such as Philip Auslander, Peggy Phelan, Rebecca Schneider, André Lepecki, Eleonora Fabião, Shannon Jackson, Gabriele Brandstetter, Paula Caspão and Metchild Widrich, among others.
