Artists Wesam Al Asali, FRAUD and Nastassja Simensky come together to bring a critical framing to the concept of preservation. Embracing different methodologies and spanning diverse contexts – from the Syrian conflict, to pre and postindustrial England – their practices shed light on issues of accountability, agency, power and ownership.
This is not a Performance or a Lecture!
Instigating discussion about the intersection between performance and visual practice.
On Saturday 18th June 2011 Radar presented a programme of new works interrogating (and breaking down, and sometimes rejecting) the boundary between performance and visual art through the medium of the performance lecture. Though formally limited these offer unique and complex possibilities.
The seven performance lectures took place in different spaces across campus and pushed at the boundaries of the form rather than demonstrating a unified approach. Explanation was combined with fictional narrative, the theatrical morphed into the instructional, and the authoritative voice of the lecturer teetered on the verge of (un)reliability. Together, the works challenged the idea that performance should provide entertainment whilst lecturers should impart knowledge.
