Belgium Performance Festival - ‘How to Document a Performance’

Tuesday, 4 October, 2016 - 12:00 to Wednesday, 5 October, 2016 - 16:00
Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
Performance Art

For more than three years now, the Belgium Performance Festival puts performance art by Belgian artists and artists working in Belgium into the spotlight. This year dr. Stefan Wouters (VUB) is the curator of the festival, in collaboration with the Kultuurkaffee.

The third edition of the festival focuses on the theme 'registration'. "How to Document a Performance" presents the work of 30 artists. These performances will be documented by diverse media. 

During the festival an interactive, artistic symposium will take place. Visitors and guest speakers will examine the relation between the ephemeral nature of a performance and its often static registration. A central question here is what is the most appropriate method to record performances for the purpose of archiving and transferring these to the next generations.
