I just came across Denis Beaubois, an Australian multidisciplinary artist whose work, Currency - Division of Labor might be of interest to researchers here.

Event Description

During the last two decades performance art has made an enormous impact leading it from a more or less marginal existence between Avant-garde and Underground right into the very centre of the artistic world. Extended voice can´t tell a comparable story of success but has as well become an artform of ist own since the last decades. Both artforms share the intention to enquire about the essence of art and aim at redefining the link between art and life in a new way. How do their attempts to answer these questions compare? Where is the artistic interface between Extended Voice and Performance Art?
Association stimmfeld e.V. has been engaging for some time with researching the relations of extended voice and performance art and has now taken initiative to invite artists of both disciplines to meet and discuss their artistic goals and framework in February 2014. This meeting or conference is initiated and presided by the voice and performance artist Ralf Peters.
The invited artists will give short lectures about their current ideas of performance art. They will inform the subsequent plenum discussions.


Andrea Pagnes and Verena Stenke  (VestAndPage);  Boris Nieslony; Lisa Steib; Karin Meiner; Susanne Weins; Dr. Ralf Peters.

Topics for discussion: 

What is the current situation related to these two art forms? In what direction might they evolve? What are the common aspects of both arts, how can we disover the shared ground of extended voice and performance art and how can we best make use of it artistically?

This research has already been in the focus of the Festival “open_voice/2 Roy Hart: Extended Voice heute” that stimmfeld e.V. presented in April and May 2012. With the conference of 2014 we will be continuing our research. A documentation of the festival and the lectures given there is to be found on the event website.
