FLAM Performance Art Week, Amsterdam
Forum of Live Art Amsterdam 2017
May 30, 31, June 1 from 7:30 Pm
June 2, 3 from 8 PM
Arti et Amicitiae (Rokin, 112) and Frascati Theater (Nes, 71)
From May 30 to June 3, 2017 FLAM presents a week of ongoing experimental Live Art presentations, featuring a program of cross-disciplinary and radically experimental work by more than twenty local and international artists.
For its seventh iteration, FLAM explores questions around self-presentation, self-transformation and a heightened state of alterity (otherness) in the digital age. With a particular focus on the performativity of ‘the self’, the artists respond to different states of alterity by, for example, subverting the specific roles and social codes of today’s social media platforms. The possibilities to create, manipulate and perform different selves through selfies and constant status updates, have given rise to a variety of questions about performance and performativity. FLAM 2017 aims to provoke reflection and debate about the ways in which states of alterity, performativity and otherness are embodied and manifested in daily presentations of the self. Next to Live Art, this year’s program includes a residency, workshops and a panel discussion about alterity.
