The Alternative Document
This symposium explores the relationship between event and documentation as a provocation between the text /visual record and ephemeral art practices as a negotiation between sites that are often represented as polar opposites. These sites could be imagined as a territory where the distinction between land and sea is blurred, for example in alluvial plains, where the interplay between its different stages replenishes and revives each state. Rather than prioritizing one form over another, each manifestation generates potential for further responses, creating an ongoing work.

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words and a brief biography (include links to
images /videos if proposing a performance/event) to the conference organizers and by Friday 9 January 2015
Papers will last 20 mins – performances / events of any duration will be considered.
