After a weekend full of books, as Performistanbul Live Art Research Space, we will start to share our archive collection with you!
Our archive aims to hold 7000 resources that consists on the contributions of international performance artists and the materials that will be purchased with the donations. We are approaching our goal day by day, with getting various types of archive material donations. We want to thank the artists who remind us that we are not alone by sharing their archive with us.
You can stand by our side on the road of achieving the goals of our archive and Research Space, with your donations!
We begin with the archive of shaman / performance artist Frank Moore, one of the most extensive donations we had so far! Our Frank Moore archive consists of books titled “Chapped Lap”, “Cherotic Magic”, “Frankly Speaking”, “Art of a Shaman”, “Skin Passion”, “Deep Conversations in the Shaman’s Den – Volume I” along with dozens of various other archival materials such as booklets, manifestos, posters and postcards. In the meantime, dozens of soft copy materials of unprinted documents including more than 500 performance videos are added to our digital archive collection.
When Performistanbul Live Art Research Space (PCSAA) reach its goal, all resources will be available for the use of visitors!
With each donation, we are getting one step closer to fill our shelves with books. With your donations, you may contribute to this journey and stand by our side!
We would like to offer special thanks to Linda Mac & Mikee Labash.
