6.3 On Navigation



Issue editors: Ric Allsopp & David Williams

SKU: 978-0-415-26313 Category:


As new technologies enhance the ability to locate, identify and track movement, to fix and define (and ultimately devalue) who and where we are with global positioning systems, cctv surveillance, remote mapping, and credit profiles, so too it would seem there is a tendency for contemporary performance to displace itself from the conventional fixities of representation in time and space, and re-situate itself in the contingent, the indeterminate, the open, the fluid, where its explorations of instability, ephemerality and process allow us to re-situate ourselves as value. As performance migrates across surfaces and media, through boundaries and disciplines, moving from representation to transformation, so the new arts of navigation are concerned less with geographical than with informational uncertainties, less with affirmations of identity than with negotiations of difference. Continuing the theme of performance and its travels, Navigations explores what such moves and propositions might mean for a future of performance.
