Faculty of Action
Faculty of Action is an exhibition that consists of performance works and takes place at the top floor of Färgfabriken during three consecutive days. In addition to these performances there will also be workshops and a seminar.
The exhibition is about being in the room; being present here and now, and for visitors to experience the art as temporary, shifting and dynamic. In this sense, Faculty of Action is a unique exhibition experience with eight performance artworks occuring simultaneously or overlapping with one another. Here, we make room for performance as an artform - while creating a space where the artwork represents a whole, rather than parts of a program. Faculty of Action wants to highlight the potential of contemporary performance art and it’s power to explore the unknown in different ways.
On Sunday the 21st of October an international seminar will be held, with a discussion on what types of spaces are being given to performance today and how performance can take place as an art form.
Both the exhibition and the seminar aim to investigate the current position of performance art on the global and local contemporary art scene; while creating and testing the shapes of a temporary space for an art form that is in transition. The art space and the public programme, together with the new catalogue, become a platform for dialogue.
