What is this site for?

This list is too professionalized. All we see here are institutionalized opportunities, various ways in which someone who might be interested in live art - or shall I say in a career in theater? - can cash in their talent for some kind of recognition.

What does philosophy have to do with performance? Answering will require seeing live practices, reading about performance art events, following festivals devoted to live art, and thinking about the cultural context in which it occurs.…

CFP parallax: Performative Afterlife

Call for Contributions

parallax special issue: “Performative Afterlife”

For many years, a number of important developments in fine art practice, the history of art, and performance studies have been linked, at least implicitly, by a vigorous interrogation of the status of…

More news about Turkey

 American leaders of whatever party have been shameless in using jihadists for their purposes, financing them, training them. The Americans deny being involved in the Turkish coup despite being deeply entrenched in that Nato country with a military base there for themselves and Israel. The Americans have been harbouring a man called Gulen a screaming jihadist who is wanted in Turkey for terrorism. Apparently he lives in luxury and his life is carefully protected by the US as he, who has his…
