I came across this interview some time ago with Laura Eldret of CollectingLiveArt. The interview discusses the two-year initiative that tried to inspire a market for Live Art by establishing guidelines for prospective collectors. For me, this initiative opens up a provocative debate about the 'inherent ephemerality' of Live Art.


A series of conversations and reading groups bringing students and faculty at Brown University together with artists, researchers and professionals from a wide range of international and interdisciplinary perspectives, Archiving the Ephemeral is a valuable discursive space for researchers and practitioners concerned and critically engaged with the authoritative agency of the archive in the arts and humanities.

Made possible by a grant from the Office of International Affairs, Brown University.
