[1] Artistic Re-enactments in Eastern European Performance Art

From: Amy Bryzgel <a.bryzgel at abdn.ac.uk>
Subject: CFP: Artistic Re-enactments as Vehicles of Cultural Transfer in
Eastern European Performance Art

Deadline: Nov 9, 2015

Convenor: Amy Bryzgel, University of Aberdeen, a.bryzgel at abdn.ac.uk

Description: The re-enactment of artistic performances and actions is 
a topic that has garnered much attention in recent years, most 
notably catalogued in Amelia Jones' and Adrian Heathfield's 
substantial publication Perform, Repeat, Record: Live Art in History 
(2012). Given the fact that, in many cases, artistic transfer from 
one generation to the next did not occur in the traditional manner - 
through the academies - in Eastern Europe, re-enactments of artistic 
performance can function, in the region, as a witness to the 
forgotten past, functioning as a vehicle of cultural memory. 
Additionally, it can facilitate the transfer of ideas, history and 
practice from one generation to the next. This panel invites papers 
that discuss artistic re-enactments of performances from across the 
former communist and socialist countries of Central, Eastern and 
Southern Europe in recent artistic practice. The papers in the panel 
should interrogate some of the following questions: What are the 
various functions of artistic re-enactments of performances in 
Eastern Europe? How do these functions compare with current 
understandings of re-enactment in the West? How can re-enactments be 
used to access a lost or inaccessible history (such as performance 
art in Eastern Europe)? Also welcome are papers that consider 
revisiting culturally relevant or historically significant places by 
artists or within the context of artistic re-enactments.
