'Performing the Memory' - Online Course at ECC Performance Art
with Marta Jovanovic

This practice-based course focuses on the concept of memory as immediate inspiration and tool for creating performance art. Through joint analysis of historic and contemporary examples by artists such as Franko B., La Pocha Nostra, Kimsooja, Preach R Sun, Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, or Miao Jiaxin, participants will approach different forms of memory such as personal vs. collective, and the discourses connected with them: from emotion such as love and loss, to issues of identity, gender, and race, or experiences of migration, displacement and diaspora.
Building on these discussions as well as selected readings, participants will be guided to explore various approaches of using memory in their artistic practice, which they will be able to elaborate through both assigned as well as in-class performances. The course is divided into three main sections focusing on personal, group, and collective memories through which participants will explore a span of memories from intimate experiences to global issues like the current Covid-19 pandemic. 
Participants will have the opportunity to experiment in a safe, judgement-free zone where they can express themselves most honestly while receiving the support and knowledge to grow confidence and strengthen their personal performance persona, presence, and space.
