As part of Performing Participation, a class at NYU ITP, 13 students are presenting participatory performances on the theme of USER. This event is not a final presentation of finished work. It is more of an invitation for our friends to visit the class and be part of our ongoing conversation about spectatorship and participation in performance art.
The event will happen at Doosan Gallery 533 West 25th Street, New York, NY 10001.
Is there a script behind our participation in everyday events? What are the factors that are engineered into human experience? This class will explore the codes of participation embedded in technological spectacle of daily life by staging experimental happenings. Happening, a term coined by a performance artist Allan Kaprow in the 50s, transforms space as an interface for unconventional situations to occur and a site of confrontation and stimulation. Contemporary performance artists create work outside the division of staged and timed events, toward art work that seeks to establish sense of affect and presence. This class will explore participation as an artistic medium to create an unconventional performance art piece.
