Expanded Animation 2023 – Performative Acts (Stephan Schwingeler, gold extra, ANIMA PLUS)

Performance is a word that evokes a multitude of interpretations. In the simplest terms, performance describes the act of executing a task or function, but it also encompasses the staging and presentation of the act itself. As a form of artistic expression, such an act can be a play, a piece of music, a dance choreography, or a live animation. In contrast to animated films, performative acts are typically unique, and though they can be repeated, each differs in some way. Immediacy and unpredictability, among many other qualities, are the building blocks of performance in this context. But all animations, whether pre-recorded or live, are essentially a composition of static elements brought to life as a performative act. The eleventh edition of the Expanded Animation Symposium titled The Art of Performance, organized by the Hagenberg Campus of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and Ars Electronica, aims to explore and discuss the various interfaces between animation, performance, and artistic expression from multiple viewpoints. It will take place from September 8th to 10th as part of the Ars Electronica Festival 2023.
