In the framework of the Learning Program of the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK 2016, PAS Performance Art Studies present the theoretical studies Critical Reflection II.





"We learn differently when we are learning to perform than when we are learning to understand what is being communicated to us. Reflection enables us to correct distortions in our beliefs and errors in problem solving. Critical reflection involves a critique of the presuppositions on which our beliefs have been built." (Jack Mezirow, "How Critical Reflection Triggers Transformative Learning")

During the Studies, participants have the unique opportunity to witness the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK 2016: seeing the exhibition, observing the live performances, meeting the artists, discussing and researching what is presented with other like-minded people. Sharing our opinions and reflections, and putting them into context will generate a vivid research on performative practice, and help to understand complex structures and theories. Participants will mainly discuss, write, sketch, scribble, doodle, interview and document their views and shared opinions. These documents will be published at the end of the Studies in an online publication (see here for the publication of Critical Reflection I in 2014).

PAS works with three teachers, allowing to do specific research also in smaller groups, which share their observations in a plenum.

BBB Johannes Deimling, Marie-Luise Lange (Technische Universität Dresden) and Michael Barrett (University of Arizona) guide the Studies, involving artists of the ART WEEK.
