RACE WITH TIME 2

Tekma s časom 2

Action, happening and performance had been a direct reaction to the prevailing formalist and market-driven art in the 1950s and 1960s. As the new means of expression at the intersection of visual art and theatre, they have somehow been pertinent to both fields; nonetheless, they have regularly been overlooked from the canonised history books and surveys.

In the context of Conceptual Art and New Artistic Practices, video art has met a similar reception. Apart from being a strongly individualistic activity, performance and video share various other features, such as inappropriate production conditions and lack of critical writing. It is also questionable whether they have found a pertinent field of representation, in the sense that the gallery is the field of representation of visual art, theatre of performing art, and the movie theatre that of film; while, television and the Internet seem to be the testing ground for all manners of production. It is also possible that performance and video mostly belong to the fields of other art forms, often overlapping and integrating other so-called new media.

The relationship between performance and video has always been multilayered and followed a preceding relation between film and action.

 

EXHIBITION
Curator: Barbara Borčić

The relationship between performance art and video art could be schematically demonstrated by four modes: 1) video as a document of performance, 2) video as a part of performance / performance as a part of video, 3) (video) performance, staged only for the camera, and 4) performance made possible only through video, its expressive and technological possibilities for processing and editing.

GREY) (AREA SPACE FOR CONTEMPORARY AND MEDIA ART

Grey) (area strives to positively redefine the position of the cultural periphery of the island on which it operates, while understanding culture in the extended sense of the word, which includes daily practices, cultural and artistic production observed in a broader social and political context.

Activities include support and promotion of contemporary audio and visual languages of urban culture as well those from peripheral cultural positions, especially in the Mediterranean region, supporting and assisting the art that confirms the forms of expressions which use the languages ​​of contemporary art, media culture and new technologies (Article 11 of the Statute Association).

The mission at the local level is to connect local population through cultural facilities and improvement of visual and media culture of the island of Korčula, as well as the coordination of the island's network of cultural institutions kor :: net.

The mission at the regional and international levels is creating and fostering cultural policies of the island towards contemporary forms of creative expression.

Among the long-term priorities of the development of international cooperation in the Mediterranean region, actions in defined fields of non-institutional culture, art production, independent science and social development according to the values of civil society.

The association seeks to actively involve local and international contemporary creative actors in existing frameworks of cultural tourism, which relies mainly on traditional content and cultural heritage. At the same time we are creating a critical discourse aiming at social transformation towards civil, more conscious and more just society of equal subjects.
