Art historian, curator and author Marie de Brugerolle will present her curatorial, pedagogical and critical practice including her concept of Post Performance Future, re-evaluating the experience of performance in the times affected by the "Society of Spectacle"and its dematerialization and exploring the potencies of re-enactment and the crossovers of performance with different media (e.g. film, text, photography and sculpture). In the spring semester of 2018 at UMPRUM in Prague Marie de Brugerolle will give a theoretical and practical course named The Object of Post Performance Future.
