About the Living and the Dead,
"Documentation has become more
and more important for the history of art and especially for the
history of performance art. The spectators participate in the
production of art mythology. An enormous amount of tech devices
are now easily accessible. The opportunity these devices give
us to create artifacts of “personal memory” about
the art piece makes us see ourselves as mythology “producers”
rather than “passive” mythology “readers”.
Although documentation in exhibition spaces is usually not permitted,
people always take photos with their telephones and post them
to their web blogs, thus becoming documentators and mythologists."
