Since the 1960s, marking a transition from a Friedian conception of artistic modernism to one turning around John Cage and his New York circle, performance art has forged a strong relationship to moving-image art writ large. Responding to technological developments across imaging, motion-capture, and virtual or augmented reality research, performance artists have created increasingly sophisticated works that defy ready classification.

Experimental Narrative in Nonfiction

Unnatural and otherwise strange narrative devices tend to be associated with experimental fiction, yet they are often used in nonfiction, including (auto)biography, documentary film, journalism, history and science. A few examples: Claude Lanzmann’s documentary Shoah eschews chronological telling in order to repudiate notions of historical causality and inevitability; Richard Dawkins’ history of life on earth, The Ancestor’s Tale,uses similar manoeuvers, if for very different reasons.

In the last decades, acts of globalization –a product of the late capitalism in the so called first world– have spread simulacra of wealth and wellness everywhere. As a consequence, people from the peripheries embark on the diaspora to reach a better future, and need to overcome all kinds of struggles. Thus, frontiers, the cornerstone of geopolitics, play a crucial role in the control of migratory movements. In this state of affairs, there is a growing number of writers and artists who embrace the genre of science fiction to articulate experiences of displacement, marginalization or resistance, as well as to interrogate the very nature of borderlands.
