Notes on Performativity: Memory Production as a Performative Utterance, a lecture by Deirdre M. Donoghue on the 4th of December at 20:00h taking place in the framework of The Object Lag Intangible, a Play
Donoghue considers the performative as; reality producing relation between memory, its documentation and its representation. She will look at art works that deal with memory production and the production of subjectivities.
The 2010 programme of Nieuwe Vide draws to a close on the 17th and 18th of December with The Object Lag Intangible, a Play. Guest curator and artist, Emily Williams enters a working period in collaboration with performance artist, DavidWeberKrebs, artist and theoretician, Warren Neidich and artist,Deirdre M. Donoghue. Reflecting on the past year and departing from the question; How can The Object lag be documented without fixing it? Williams devises a choreography that opposes bringing The Object Lag to a prescribed end, but rather, sets it in motion as a possible beginning. Including presentations byMichael BeckRana HamadehScott Joseph JeanBaptisteMaitreJulie Peeters and guests.
