Where does it chafe when you play with the codes of the visual and performing arts? What translation keys are needed when you leave your own medium to explore another? In 25 conversations with leading artists, curators, dramaturges and production workers, Katleen Van Langendonck explores these questions. In doing so, she draws on her practical experience as coordinator and curator of Performatik, the Brussels biennial of performance (2009 to 2019).
A conversation between Katleen Van Langendonck and Ines Minten, cultural journalist at De Standaard.
The book 'The Art of Performance' by Katleen Van Langendonck is published by Track Report (Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp), and is the result of the research project 'Performance Art: craft or amateur art? A game with the codes of the theatre and the museum', conducted by Van Langendonck at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and Royal Conservatoire Antwerp.
