Open lecture - Boris Nieslony
Boris's work can be categorized as being along the lines of European anti-formalism, which via Fluxus goes back to the Situationists and Dada. He began his artistic career as a painter, photographer and musician and in the 1960s he performed purely political actions. During the 70's he moved more and more to performance where he was interested in 'everyday alchemy'. His work can be seen as a kind of physical response to specific conceptual situations and 'visual poetry'. He founded the Black Market International performance network, which still performs worldwide and in 1981 he founded an international performance archive that today is very extensive. Boris has devoted his life to spreading knowledge about and understanding of the philosophical, ethical, social, historical and revolutionary consequences of what we call performance art by collecting and writing theoretical texts, organizing international performance conferences and keeping his archive open to visitors from around the world.
