ASA-European will install an index about performance-art and it´s network

The index will include worldwide information about performance artists, performance events, theoretical movements, researches, documents, organizations and so on. We collect dossiers by the artists, documents and catalogs of events and festivals, reviews, projects, addresses of organisations, theoretical reflections and statements.

The basic research lies in a different definition and development of the image in life, in another sight of body in space. Above all, the body and the public as a result of the political movement, social behaviour in the daily life and reflections about a different sight of body-researches in art and science and images of communication.

The results are a big locomotion, a big agility, in selforganisations, in projects, and in the development of networks in the culture of performance art since 1975.

In the future, ASA-European will install a computer-based terminal, attached to Internet, about this performance network and the movement of ideas since 1975.
