Translated title of the contribution: Artpool Art Research Center. : Europe: Art's Spots, Budapest.

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    This small book discusses the histories and activities of Artpool Art Research Center, Budapest 1979 –2002. It was one of a series of publications produced as part of a four-month project funded by the European Union’s ‘Discovering Europe’ programme. The project, ‘Europe: Art’s Spots’ was curated by Waldemar Tatarczuk and organised by Centrum Kultury, Osrodek Sztuki Performance, Lublin, Poland. It set out to present the work of a selection of the key performance art venues in Europe, including, amongst others: Artpool Art Research Center, Budapest; Het Apollohuis, Eindhoven; E.P.I. Zentrum, Cologne; Polysonneries Festival, Lyon. In addition to being commissioned to produce her book text, Bodor was invited to give a multimedia lecture/presentation, ‘Archiving Performance/Performing the Archive’, that discussed the relationship between performance art and documentation as well as the specific Artpool model of ‘active archive’ in relation to its activities from 1979 to 2002.

    ach book in the series to which Bodor’s publication contributed discusses the history and activities of one of the venues involved in ‘Europe: Art’s Spots’. While books were published in Polish, the texts were also published online in their original language (in the case of Bodor’s text, in English). Bodor subsequently rehearsed and developed some of the issues raised by her book text in a conference presentation entitled ‘ ‘Duel’– Ephemerality versus Documentation: practice and research in/as visual performance; the outcomes and problems of 20 years of performance-research in Hungary’ as part of the conference ‘Underground Art and Alternative Public Realm II’, 28-29 October 2004, organised by and presented at the Communication Faculty of the University of Sciences, Pécs, Hungary.
