V2_ invited Chris Salter to become guest curator for a period of four months starting in December 2010. To kick off his main project, the Performative Ecologies expert meeting early next year, Salter will present his book Entangled and introduce the research topics he will focus on during his curatorship. Performing arts traditions span thousands of years of human history, but today, the word "performative" seems to be gaining increasing traction in all kinds of disciplines that have never before described their practices that way, including science and technology studies, the media arts, economics, sociology, anthropology and architecture, to name just a few. Why are these fields suddenly turning toward the performative and material and moving away from the simulated, virtual and disembodied – qualities that characterized technocultural artistic practices as well as cultural theory at the end of the last century?

The Italian performance artist TeZ presents ANHARMONIUM, an immersive installation and performance investigating spatial awareness via light reflections of water waves. Ultrasonic sound will make water in small basins vibrate, and laser beams will project the wave patterns onto the walls and ceiling of the V2_ space.
