ARE YOU ALIVE OR NOT? Looking at ART through the lens of THEATRE proposes itself as a “modus operandi” for generating knowledge, ideas, questions, collaborations, happenings, and things. The project takes its initial inspiration from a wish expressed in the introduction to Claire Bishop’s book Artificial Hells, Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship:
“It is hoped that these chapters might give momentum to rethinking the history of twentieth-century art through the lens of theatre rather than painting or the ready-made.”
