Critique and the Event
Three kinds of events – Models of (critical) writing – The chain and the score: Event-based curating – The transition into practice – Return to foreign lands: back to the text.
Starting out from an analysis of three heterogeneous events – a performance, an exhibition, a scene from everyday life – »Critique and the Event« leads participants through different forms of writing on dance (the review – the profile – the essay – the interview) into the labyrinth of event-based curating (exhibiting considered as one of the performing arts – the exhibition as a chain of events – altered forms: what then is the point of doing a show? – does this also work with »theory«? – the exhibition as score); then out of this labyrinth into practice (how to design an event-based show? – how to approach an exhibition as score? – and that's what we'll actually do) and in the end out of what has been made and back into (critical) writing (which frame to choose? – and what form of writing? – who is my reader? – and what is my position in the field? – in short: how to write about an event-based show).
The Field Project encourages an engaged approach to questions of contemporary writing on dance and post-performative curating.
