Version Control

How do we relate to the world through images and objects? How is our vision of the past and the future affected, or transformed, by the contemporary information economy?

Version Control is a large-scale survey exhibition about the notion of appropriation and performance in the expanded field of contemporary artistic practice. Instead of an understanding of performance as a live activity or connected to an exploration of the artist's body, the exhibition explores performance in a radical sense as a method of making the past present. Performativity, in this way, explores the conscious moment of staging, appropriating, archiving and re-visiting images and other forms of representation, touching on questions of historiography, mediation, subjectivity, and ownership.

The project will include works from artists of different generations and backgrounds, from visual art, theatre and digital culture, presenting film and video, painting, drawing, and sculpture. Through a series of interventions and ‘performing objects', the exhibition will be itself performative and change over the course of the show.
