if I may, as a small postscript, comment on the discussion regarding "new media curating" -
now that we are having a lively discussion on media objects and synchronous "performance objects"
- it is good to see such exchange, on the matter of time-based art and performance, especially
at a time when museums more and more frequently invite performance/performing (live art, dance, music)
into the exhibitions scene or, if you like, try to write performance history into the history and
the discourse of the visual arts.
the performative (and interactional) dimension of time based art (if we remember the discussion about Paik),
as well as the continuous rapprochement between (post)media artists and the cross-over collaborations between
postmedia art and performing arts, but also the independent developments in intermedial performance, in music
and sound art, etc, would seem to require that interdisciplinary thinking - in the practice of
curating - draws more on the practical knowledge and artistic methods of the performing arts
(I looked for references to the large body of writings in performance, when I began to read "Rethinking Curating," [esp.
the sections on Time based Arts / Video and Performance & Performance Time], or the catalogue for
Move: Choreographing You, or the catalogue for AWARE.... and couldn't find them, and i guess this also is what Johannes
Goebel meant at the end of his last post?).
wishing you well
