Meeting with Bojana Kunst and Igor Štromajer Saturday, 17 December 2011, encounter between Bojana Kunst and Igor Štromajer
On May 2011 Igor Štromajer started to delete his net art projects, created from 1996 to 2007 (Expunction, 2011). The process of deletion opened many questions about temporal fragility of contemporary artistic practice, especially when we talk about new media art works. You are invited to join us at the encounter, where we would like to talk about the disappearance of projects and their temporal traces, about the attempts to keep the projects going on or to delete them, transfer them or archive them, to keep them or to leave them going.
“À suivre”: capturer le temps dans la performance contemporaine Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers
The dance theorist Bojana Kunst is spending weeks with a choreographer, artist, or other cultural producer (Danae Theodoridou, performer and researcher, Boyan Manchev, philosopher and theorist, Ivana Müller, choreographer, Igor Štromajer, internet artist), exploring the different aspects of work processes within contemporary art, their relationship to time and the political, economic and performative implications of such experimentation. These “full-time” meetings are being shared with the public, either during conversations, performance, or by individual appointment. These occasions offer to the public the opportunity to engage themselves with the ways Bojana Kunst and her partners address their relationships to time. The material produced during these meetings and public situations provides the basis for a publication, to appear in 2012.
