Objekt Permanence

Despite the increased interest in performance art in artistic production and discourse over the last few years, rarely has the documentation of performance been called into question. Objekt Permanence investigates the space between, and the temporality of, performance art and its documentation. It consists of documentations of performances that have never occurred, with each performance appropriating an art historical masterpiece as a point of departure.
