Join Jennifer Verson, Manuel Vason and Tara Fatehi Irani of the DARC collective for talks and presentations on the practices, aesthetics and ethics of co-creating performance documentation, performance photography and photo performances.
Last summer Manuel Vason was in residence with the multi-faith women’s group and choir Migrant Artists Mutual Aid (MaMa) and the transmutable voices team: performer/director Jennifer Verson, artist/psychotherapist Lorena Rivero de Beer and and social psychologist Pamella Mastrilli and co-created a series of photo performances exploring new aesthetics of citizenship.
Manuel Vason returns to Liverpool on May 11th with Tara Fatehi Irani to discuss the theories, processes and challenges of creating the ethical document.
DARC are a collective of artists who believe that the documentation of other artists work is not just preservation but a creative act. This event is programmed by Open Eye Gallery in association with LOOK/17 and is part of the week long event LOOK/17: UK/China Cultural Exchange II.
