Artist Talk | Performance Beyond the Body - Ed Atkins, Jay Pather, RoseLee Goldberg and Kathy Noble

  • Art Basel - Halle 1.1 Auditorium 10 Messeplatz Basel, BS, 4058 Switzerland (map)

Since its emergence in the 1960s and more recently in the last ten years, performance in the art context has had a great effect on both the role of the viewer/participant and object/perception of the artwork. Given developments in the digital realm, such as animation and interactive software, relationships between the body and performer have taken major steps. What are the limitations of performative arts, if any? Can performance exist without a body?

Ed Atkins, Artist, Berlin; Jay Pather, Adjunct Curator for Performance, Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town; RoseLee Goldberg, Founding Director and Curator of Performa, New York

Moderator: Kathy Noble, Writer and Curator, London
