Vortrag: Living Materials. Ethics and Principles for Embodied Stewardship

10. Juni 2021 @ 17:30 - 19:30

This conversation between artist and archivist Cori Olinghouse and art historian Megan Metcalf examines embodied conservation skills, which are essential for the preservation of performance and related mediums yet remain mostly invisible and under-theorized in visual art. The presentation begins from the premise that dance and other performance forms have inherent strategies for continuation that mitigate against their ephemerality. First the speakers lay out paradigms from dance and improvisation for originality, authorship, and continuity that are at odds with those of object conservation. This sets up an exploration of the care of live art at museums and beyond institutions through a «mutual interview» focused on each speaker’s experience with translating dance and performance works for the present and future.

Next in the series Forschungs-Donnerstag/Research Thursday, this online event is hosted within the framework of the research project Performance: Conservation, Materiality, Knowledge funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation SNSF at the Bern University of the Arts.

Introduction by Hanna B. Hölling, in collaboration with SNSF Performance team members, Valerian Maly, Julia Pelta Feldman and Emilie Magnin. There will be a possibility to engage with the speakers in the Q&A.
