After the Act

After the Act: The (Re)Presentation of Performance Art
VIENNA  •  Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna  •  Ongoing

After the Act investigates the relationship of performance art to the forms of its documentation and the history of its reception from a single moment to a cultural commodity.

The exhibition in the Factory presents different forms of reception and appropriation of performance documentation in contemporary art. Works by Carola Dertnig, Daniel Guzman, Luis Felipe Ortega, and Seth Price investigate the history of the reception of performance art and its documentary strategies from the 1960s and 1970s. Their videos, photographs, graphics, and drawings are shown side by side with documentary material they have drawn on as source material, from performances by Joan Jonas, Bruce Nauman, Paul McCarthy, Terry Fox, and Viennese Actionism.
