Documentary art of today seems to most often discuss the correlation between the private and the public or between fact and fiction, with the biographical and a discussion on identity as a focal point and an aim. But documentary art can arise from and be headed towards other directions. With a side glance on visual art, architecture and music the seminar will explore the opportunity for alternative documentary strategies anchored in collective remembrance, the collectively phrased and the collectively phrased’s expressions. There was invited to a conversation about the correlation between documents, the documentary, the monument and the monumental in performing arts.

The seminar was supported by Arts Council Norway.
