The Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) presents:

Performance and Labour Symposium

This symposium is an interdisciplinary event that will address performance in an expanded sense as a form of labour. Performance will be considered as an activity and a practice that takes place both within and outside the realm of art. The symposium will interrogate the physical and intellectual experiences of viewing and producing performances. These questions will be raised across the fields of art history, philosophy, performance studies, political economy, theatre and dance. Addressed in this expanded way, the aim of the symposium is to investigate the histories of mass performances and social choreographies in political contexts, to situate performance as a form of praxis and to interrogate the language of performance as a managerial strategy within late
capitalism.

Programme:

Introductions by Larne Abse Gogarty and Josefine Wikstom.

Keynote Lecture:
Professor Randy Martin (Tisch School of the Arts, New York University) – From the Derivative to Dance and Back: Economies of Performance
