PERF11019   Performance Art in Context

Performance art takes place in and across increasingly diverse range of spaces, sites, locations and contexts. This course enables students to recognise and respond to the various contexts in which performance art can take place by conceptualising arts practice in new, dynamic and multiple ways. In addition to the traditional location/sites of stage and screen (television, film/video), this course explores the dimensions of performance art in ’everyday' public spaces, educational contexts, tourism industries, and the domain of cyberspace. The technical aspects of planning and staging art performances are examined in connection with related issues of audience, reception, representation and critique. By identifying the roles that cultural organisations, governments, arts related industries, critics, media organisations and tourism industries play in supporting the arts and creating markets for the arts students develop an awareness of opportunities for diverse approaches to arts practice.
