Dreams for an Institution: Live Art Development Agency Study Guide


This Study Room Guide for the Live Art Development Agency by Johanna Linsley is a response to a Study Room Gathering about the state of the institution and its alternatives for (and as) Live Art. We live in a time when many long-standing institutions are in a state of crisis, and precarity is becoming a normalized condition for vast swathes of the population. What kind of stance can a radical performance practice take towards institutions in these times?


This Guide looks at artists’ projects that engage with institutions, both critically and creatively, and considers how performance practice has engaged and challenged institutions in recent years.


The Dreams for an Institution Study Room Guide can be read online and downloaded as a pdf or viewed in the Study Room.


Study Room Guides aim to help navigate users through the Live Art Development Agency’s Study Room, a free, open-access research facility used by artists, students, curators, academics, and other arts professionals.
