Performing the Sentence

Research and Teaching in Performative Fine Arts

Publication Series of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, vol. 13, 2014

Contributions by Philip Auslander, Sabeth Buchmann, Margarit von Büren, Barbara Clausen, Carola Dertnig, Andrea Fraser, Sabine Gebhardt Fink, Simone Forti, Sabina Holzer, Amelia Jones, Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Marie-Luise Lange, Suzana Milevska, Lilo Nein, Susanne Neuburger, Yvonne Rainer, Constanze Ruhm, Dietmar Schwärzler, Stefanie Seibold, Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein, Mechtild Widrich, Martha Wilson --------------- ''Performing the Sentence'' brings into dialogue the ways that ''performative thinking'' has developed in different national and institutional contexts, within different disciplines in the arts, and the conditions under which it has developed in experimental art schools. This anthology is a collection of twenty-one essays and conversations that weave in and out of the two key areas of research and teaching within performative fine art. They bring to light the conventions involved in the production, presentation, reception, and historicization of performance art, as well as the specific cultural and political implications. The various contributions also show how these conventions are produced through or within each artwork, independent from their specific contexts, offering ways of thinking beyond their usual frames of reference. At the same time they recognize the substantial work carried out by artists, critics, and theorists who have built on the meanings, references, and implications of performative thinking since the beginning of the ''performative turn.''

Troubling Research
Performing Knowledge in the Arts

Sternberg Press, Berlin 2014

Edited and with contributions by Carola Dertnig, Diedrich Diederichsen, Tom Holert, Johannes Porsch, Johanna Schaffer, Stefanie Seibold, and Axel Stockburger

In 2010/11, a group of Vienna-based art practitioners (artists, art historians, and cultural theorists) embarked on a journey of experimental research, exploring the genealogical and political implications of the ways in which research rhetorics and policies are currently incorporated into the fields of contemporary art and art education. Troubling Research: Performing Knowledge in the Arts, a collection of “books” of essays and conversations, is the quirky and exhilarating outcome of this collaborative endeavor to render a “problematization” by interrogating the very conditions of the current upsurge of the art/research articulation.  

Michel Foucault once introduced problematization as a “specific work of thought” that transforms “a group of obstacles and difficulties into problems to which diverse solutions will attempt to produce a response.” For this project, the obstacles and difficulties in question were the terms “art” and “research” and their peculiar conjunction as “artistic” or “arts-based research.” As a result of this process, the understanding of individual artistic/theoretical practices was tested. Working both independently and as a collaborative entity, the group found itself negotiating and contesting each participant’s claim to knowledge in the context of art. The eventual responses to the problem of research proved to be both performative and troubling.

Performance in Vienna from 1960 until today

D.E.A., Gumpoldskirchen / Wien 2006

Historische und aktuelle Positionen der Performance in Österreich präsentiert die vorliegende Anthologie, in der erstmals die Bedeutung dieses Mediums für die heimische Kunstszene untersucht wird. Beleuchtet werden öffentliche wie subkulturelle Wiener Kunstszenen und deren Strahlkraft für die aktuelle Entwicklung. Wo steht Performance in Österreich heute, was sind die interessantesten Ansätze und Strategien, welche Querverbindungen zu anderen Kunsträumen lassen sich nachvollziehen und darstellen? Rund 40 Positionen werden in mehrseitigen Text- und Bildbeiträgen vorgestellt. Interviews mit ZeitzeugInnen, Kommentare von ExpertInnen und profunde Analysen runden das Gesamtbild ab.
