Stage, Record, Archive: Performance, a two-day international conference, will address key issues regarding research, documentation and archival practices of performance art. Presented within the context of SALT’s ongoing research project on performance art in Turkey, the participants will share diverse documentation methods, necessary digital tools to capture and preserve performance art’s ephemeral nuances, as well as key approaches in sharing such archival material with the public.

SALT’s research on performing arts in Turkey, which particularly focuses on a time frame between mid-1980s until late 1990s, aims to map and visually decode critical works expressed in the form of dance, live and experimental theatre. The research outcome will be probed further through a web project and a comprehensive exhibition in September 2022.

The conference Stage, Record, Archive: Performance (in English) will be livestreamed on SALT Online YouTube Channel on February 22-23
