  3. 3. performance/photography: changing relationship • Early days of performance art: 1960s/70s • Photography: primary role as documentary record of events • Photographersmaynot be credited
  4. 4. A photo of Chris Burden's Trans-fixed 1974 performance art piece featuring him being nailed to a Volkswagen in Venice, CA. The photo copyright is owned by the artist, Chris Burden.
  5. 5. performance/photography: changing relationship • Later developments performance art: from 1980s • In general, original performance looses its unique importance, becomes a component in a process where photography is equally important (this is a simplification of a much more comples process) • Photography: equal partner in creating the image
  6. 6. «Rest Energy» Standing across from one another in slated position. Looking each other in the eye. I hold a bow and Ulay holds the string with the arrow pointing directly to my heart. Microphones attached to both hearts recording the increasing number of heart beats. http://www.mediaartnet.org/works/rest-energy/ Marina Abramovic&Ulay,Rest Energy, 1980
  7. 7. performance/photography: changing relationship When actions are performed solely for the camera: • the performance takes place within the picture • photography can stand alone as a visual artifact • can be equally ephemeral if projected onto a wall

  11. 11. KaterinaSeda, There's Nothing There, 2003, Czech Republic) Saturday in May 2003, Ponetovice. A village close to Brno in Czech Republic. KaterinaSeda asked the inhabitants of the South-Moravian village to synchronise their daily routine so they all did exactly the same things at exactly the same time. The action drew on the artist’s research into the everyday life of the locals , and its aim was to make people do things together and to show them – and the world – the village normality as a positive quality.
