Performing Acts on Photography

The multidisciplinary performing arts are continuously instigated by new technologies. If the body were originally the relationship with the public and the unexpected major components of performative action, with time became constant the embodiment in every work of art – including photography. However, the characteristic ambiguity of photography, this is not expressed in a single form of performance art. In this context, we can identify four types of events: the documental, the creation of a photographic subject as a result of a performative action, the performance in portrait photography and the application of the concept of everyday performative photography as an object.
