Claire Bishop in Conversation: Wednesday, September 29

Performance: Conservation, Materiality, Knowledge
Claire Bishop in Conversation: Wednesday, September 29
Wednesday, September 29, 17:00 CEST
What does it mean to conserve performance art, to extend its lifespan into the future? While art museums have begun to exhibit as well as collect works of performance, questions remain as to how such processes of institutionalization and historicization shift – or, perhaps, distort – the meaning and experience of such works. Art historian and critic Claire Bishop will discuss these and related questions with the research team behind the SNSF research project Performance: Conservation, Materiality, Knowledge.
Claire Bishop is professor of art history at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Bishop holds a 2002 PhD from the University of Essex and has authored several influential books, including Installation Art: A Critical History (2005), Artificial Hells: Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship (2012), and Tania Bruguera in Conversation with/en conversación con Claire Bishop (2020).
