VOYEURS - Month of Performance Art-Berlin, May 2014 - A review by Gauthier Lesturgie

mpa-blog:

During the Month of Performance Art, 2 x 2 x 2m white cube appeared within eight different public places in Berlin.

Eight moments during the « Month of Performance Art » in Berlin, a 2 x 2 x 2m white cube appeared in different public places in town. Each time the cube contained long duration performances by several artists.

Installed in streets and squares of the city, the enclosed space had an « anomalous » presence, even bizarre : an intrusion in which the viewer does not take part, in direct opposition to numerous actions within the public space, leaving the passers-by oddly incidental.

(via Machismo Ain’t Just for Boys Anymore)
PORTLAND, Oregon — “Macho doesn’t prove mucho,” socialite and actress Zsa Zsa Gabor once punned. And while a certain prideful strut and a slightly aggressive air may prove little, it remains a schema that frames how we perceive and gauge masculinity, which is begging to be deconstructed. Eisa Jocson‘s recent performance “Macho Dancer” (2014) at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art‘s (PICA) 2014 Time-Based Art (TBA) festival used macho gestures like muscle flexing, chest puffing, and other assertive poses. Bare-chested while simultaneously flexing her arms and flaunting her manufactured bulge, the performance was gender-bending cognitive dissonance at its artistic best.

The assertion that Postmodernism “ruined and made everything better” is probably the most appropriate way I’ve ever heard it describe. (Thanks, Jenkins!) While I appreciate the critical thinking and question everything attitude of Postmodernism, it makes me wonder if you can over examine the world…

Reading Response #2 

kinsey-horneck:
