Angela Harutyunyan. Talk: Interstices of History: A Timeline of Body Art and Performance
In her presentation Angela Harutyunyan will refer to a collaborative research project conducted with Joanna Sokolowska, Tevz Logar, Vesna Madzoski, Vardan Azatyan and Eszter Lazar and entitled ‘A Timeline of Performance and Body art Practices from Eastern Europe and Former USSR’. This project epitomizes the larger methodological and art historiographical concerns that inform Angela Harutyunyan’s work. It is a collaborative publication with several art curators and historians facilitated by her. It constitutes a methodological narrative as well as political and artistic timelines encompassing the period between 1949-2007. In this project, the two main areas of Angela Harutyunyan’s practice - art history research and curating - intersect: art history writing comes out as a mode of curating, and curating appears as a historically grounded practice.
