A Performance e o Filme: da Fluxus à Performance Digital
Keywords:Digital performance, Video performance, Video art, Media art, Fluxus
This is an historic contextualization of the relation between performance and technology in an incursion through the ways in which media – film, video, computer – where integrated in performance through the second half of the 20th century. From John Cage to Fluxus Films through Nam June Paik, Vito Acconci and Bruce Nauman and into the new horizons of digital performance. We are interested in the use of technology not as a mere way to register performance but as an integral element of the creation process. Often we will make a comparison between these works of art and late 20th century digital performance works, in a dialectic approach.
Este ensaio visa contextualizar temporalmente a relação entre performance e tecnologia numa incursão pela forma como os media – nomeadamente o filme, o vídeo e o computador – foram integrados na prática da performance a partir da segunda metade do século XX. Dos Fluxus Films, passando pela arte vídeo de Nam June Paik, Vito Acconci e Bruce Nauman, chegaremos aos horizontes que a performance digital nos abre hoje. Interessa-nos a utilização desses meios tecnológicos não como mero registo mas como elemento integrante do próprio processo de criação. Faremos, por vezes, um paralelo entre as obras de media performance a partir da segunda metade do século XX com trabalhos mais recentes de performance digital criados a partir dos anos 90, numa abordagem dialéctica.
