Bodybuilding: online exhibition studies the contaminations between architecture and performance

Until 15 July 2020, the New York biennial Performa presents online videos and archival content focusing on the relationship between space, body and action.

“What happens when performance enters the world of architecture? Understood as a tool, a method, or a heuristic device, performance is a blade that cuts into the matter of architecture. It slashes it open, but it may also help shape it,” write curators Charles Aubin and Carlos Mínguez Carrasco in the introduction to Bodybuilding. Architecture and Performance.

Starting with the book published last year, the New York biennial Performa expands its research with a digital exhibition, which can be visited for free until 15 July 2020. In the online channel every day are transmitted films, performances, documentation of past events...

The “Bodybuilding” online exhibition includes rare archival materials by architects such as Aldo Rossi, Ricardo Bofill and Arata Isozaki, and works by contemporary authors such as Andrés Jaque and Cooking Sections.
