Rounding up the year at a.pass, a.pt participant Sven Goyvaerts presents his research Documenting Durational Live Performance Art Using Social Media over a period of seven days. The choice of duration for this final presentation is inspired by the creation week described in the Book of Genesis. Ever since his ONE YEAR LIFE PERFORMANCE 2.0
project (2009-2010) Sven has been turning his life into a documented
performance art piece. What are the limits to consistently documenting
one's life and sharing it over the web? Can durational live performance
art of old be preserved through the use of new social networking sites,
such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.? How can we begin to think
making an inventory of contemporary durational live performance
artworks that take place on these social media?
Interviews and presentations Sven has done over the year are shown
on monitors on the 7th floor of deSingel over the entire week. On the 7th day, visitors are invited to attend an exhibition of his research
inside his house in Borgerhout.
Keep an eye on the a.pass website during this first week of February.
To reach Sven's house on Sunday, take tram 8 or 11 in front of train station Antwerpen Berchem
in the direction away from the city centre (tram 8 - Silsburg / tram 11 - Eksterlaar).
Get off at stop Apollo (second stop) and keep walking alongside the tramlines.
The second street on your left is the De Leescorfstraat.
Follow it down to number 54.
