Abstract / Summary

Considers appearance in relation to 'things', the construction of memory and how histories of dance and performance might be written if our experiences were not unidirectional. The increasing sense of the multi-directionality and openness of time and experience, partly brought about by the accessibility of digital technologies and the ubiquity of data, has an impact not only on a normative perception of history, science or social relations as 'progress', but also on our understanding of the politics of community, ideas of authorship and conventional attitudes to art and art making, and therefore over the future that is more complex than a simple actualisation of the past.

Item Type: Book Chapter
Additional Information: A invitation to contribute to a collection of writings on contemporary dance and historiography - a project of the production house Mercat des Flors, Barcelona, the publication CdL-Cuerpo de Letra Danza y Pensamiento, and the independent research group Artea http://arte-a.org/en/acerca. 'Future Perfect' considers the problem of appearance in relation to 'things', the construction of memory and the question of how histories of dance and performance might be written if our experiences are no longer unidirectional. The increasing sense of the multi-directionality and openness of time and experience, partly brought about by the accessibility of digital technologies and the relative ubiquity of data, has an impact not only on a normative perception of history, or science, or social relations as 'progress', but also on our understanding of the politics of community, its implications for ideas of authorship and conventional attitudes to art and art making, and therefore over a view of the future that is more complex that a simple actualisation of the past. The article examines appearance in the light of the work the German performance artist Boris Nieslony <www.asa.de> <http://www.liveartarchive.eu/archive/artist/boris-nieslony> and the Uruguayan artist and choreographer Ayara Hernandez Holz <www.lupitapulpo.org>.
