Theodor di Ricco’s reply to our project <i>What is performance art?</i>

Theodor di Ricco’s reply to our project What is performance art?

Walking into a room, removing a rubber ball from a pocket and bouncing it on the floor is performance art if the performance artist declares the action to be such. If an observer sitting in a lecture hall and watching someone dressed in yellow maneuver himself to a seat is performance art if the observer declares it to be such. Performance Art does not have a beginning or an end. It happens. It is time based and its ephemeral quality is it commodity.

“Eternal Performer” and her/ his position within the context of the contemporary world - Milan Kohout’s reply to Wladyslaw Kazmierczak’s text <i>Performance-education-fiction</i>

“Eternal Performer” and her/ his position within the context of the contemporary world - Milan Kohout’s reply to Wladyslaw Kazmierczak’s text Performance-education-fiction

Before we investigate the position of artists within the contemporary world, we should first define what is her/his historical role within society.

It is all about eliminating the artificial relationship between artist and institution and the game that is often a consequence: which form may an artwork adopt in order to comply with a tangle of institutional bans, limits, directions and suggestions? Certainly the artist is someone important for an institution but at the same time he/she is a threat.

Brian Connolly’s reply to our project: Timeline of Performance Art

Regarding my first performance, as far as I can remember it was part of a Cabaret Night organized by Anne Seagrave in Mother Redcaps Bar in the Liberties area within Dublin. But first I need to put things into context. Not long before that, in 1991, I had organized 'Available Resources' in Derry with Alastair Mac Lennan, Brian Kennedy, and Nick Stewart, via the Orchard Gallery. It was my first direct experience of a range of International Performance Artist's work, including works by Tomas Ruller, Zygmund PioTrowski, Artur Tajber, Alastair Mac Lennan, Richard Martel, Nick Stewart, Alana O'Kelly and James King.
