Adrian Heathfield
(Roehampton University)

<< Being in Relation>>

In this talk Heathfield discusses the aesthetics of duration and questions the 
models of time through which performance art has predominantly been 
interpreted. Taking as its starting point Tehching Hsieh and Linda Montano's 
Art/Life One Year Performance (1983-1984) in which the artists were tied 
together for an entire year without touching, Heathfield explores the question 
of what it means to be in relation. Tracing this problematic back through the 
co-ordinates of early performance art, the talk emphasizes the dynamics of 
movement and affect inherent in such relations and their ethical import. This 
reading then forms the ground for an interrogation of contemporary debates 
around the cultural value of 'relational aesthetics'.

Adrian Heathfield is a writer and curator working on and in the scenes of live 
art and performance. He is Professor of Performance and Visual Culture at 
Roehampton University, London. His latest book, Out of Now: The Lifeworks of 
Tehching Hsieh, is published by LADA and the MIT Press in March 2009.
