Michael Kargl. Performative Materiality
Following the debates about immateriality around the turn of the millennium, an increased awareness for the materiality of works can be observed in current artistic production. Discussions center around things again: things that can be touched; things that possess tangible corporeality; things that also exist beyond human perception - material things. The book "Performative Materiality" summarizes Michael Kargl's research project of the same name at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. An essay by Bayo Akomolafe, author and curator of "The Emergence Network", complements Michael Kargl's textual, visual and performative research.
