Frakcija No. 55
'Curating Performing Arts'

The concept of the curator has become more and more influential in the performing arts in recent years. But while it has been heavily discussed and theorized within the visual arts, the function of the programmer, producer, curator in the performing arts remains strangely un-debated. Even though programming in dance, theatre and performance has undergone fundamental changes over the last decades there are barely any texts that reflect on its specific role in art production and reception.
This edition of the performing art magazine Frakcija is the first publication fully dedicated to investigating the concept of the curator in performing arts, from its pragmatic limitations, its relations to art and artists up to its conditions within the field of immaterial labour and its role within the system of the art market. In original contributions theorists, artists and curators define the field of future discussions: From very concrete descriptions to abstract reflections on the very specific conditions of programming time based art.
