Galerie Persons Projects
Persons Projects proudly presents the group exhibition Framed. Activities for the Camera, focusing on the correlation between performance and photography.
Performance as an art form, beginning in the mid-20th century, has been used and developed by contemporary artists through their use of photography as their primary tool for recording their ideas and actions. Understandably, performance art needs photography to be able to last. Yet, photography plays an even more important role, not only as a means for the documentation but especially when the performance is staged solely for the camera. This exhibition presents a selection of artists who recorded their actions specifically for this reason. Together, these selected works span more than 50 years and represent several geo-political regions.
