What exactly is re-enactment and what is the effect of representation? This exhibition catalogue couples registrations of re-enactments of artistic performances with artistic reflection on historical re-enactments outside the art world. Performance art thus serves both as duplication and a form of interrogation of a nostalgic event culture.
The publication combines registrations of reenactments of artistic performances with artistic reflection on historical (war) reenactments outside the art world. Containing essays by critics and theorists, a catalog of works in the exhibition, as well as scripts and other writings by artists, the book also aims to incorporate text-visual montages that go beyond mere illustration.
Texts by Sven Lütticken, Jennifer Allen, Andrea Fraser, Peggy Phelan, Eran Schaerf, and Barbara Visser.
