Workshop will be conducted in three phases. In the first, the theory phase, M.Vason will present some possible approaches in working with performance and live art documentation, based on his own experience in working with the contemporary performance artists. Main questions that will be touched upon are going to be the relation between the photographer and the artist, the division of the space, non-invasive approach towards the art piece and the limitations of the authorship.
The second, practice-based part of the workshop will take place during the “CREATurE Live Art” performance art festival: the participants will work in real situation of live art with the supervision of the workshop leader, which will take time to discuss, evaluate and select the material. Practice-based part of the workshop will take place during the 16-18 of September, the final discussion/evaluation will take place by the end of the 18th Sept.
