“From Performance to Action and Back Again”
Symposium on the intra-action between the document and its users

“From Performance to Action and Back Again” focusses on the complex relation between performance art and documentation. The relationship between the original performance, its documentation and its users/audience will be investigated and from there the research will attempt to provide answers on how we can activate the notion of documentation in performance art. It proposes to re-think the notation and documentation of performances, not as a confirmation of them, but as the creation of new source material that gives the audience the opportunity to go somewhere else, to move away from the original action or performance and explore its unpredictable side effects.
