BOOKPERFORMANCE

Bookperformance

“Bookperformance” (written jointly, quotes put intentionally) is a world view with 2 aspects: practical and theoretical

Practical, because it textually, actually and visually gets realized as an artistic expression. Theoretical, because it is ideally reflecting the philosophy of  The Weird & The Absurd. Thus, “bookperformance”,  praises 1 core value: sharing the authorial and communal roles, with sincere regards to multiplicity and diversity, as well as transparency and love both in art and in life (see Bookperformance Manifesto).

"Bookperformance", viewed or not, has 4 components: book, author, reader and performance. It does not only explore an evenly developed relationship between book and performance but also the transference of love between the author and the reader.

"Bookperformance" has 3 states which reciprocally represent and/or substitute each other
