Stopping Time: Performance and the Archive


 ·       Judith Rodenbeck

 ·       Allan Kaprow

 ·       Paul McCarthy

Context: The artists will express their thoughts about curators’ and critics’ abilities to keep the performative and ephemeral aspects of their work available for critical inquiry and inspiration for future generations without compromising its “be-here-now” spirit, commitment to interactivity, and radicality.

  • Paul McCarthy. Installation view, ‘ “Dimensions of the Mind”. The Denial and the Desire in the Spectacle’, Hauser & Wirth Collection, Lokremise, St. Gallen, 1999.
