performingborders is a platform that explores the relations between the notion of border and live art. The ‘performingborders. conversation on live art | crossing | europe' project is disseminated as an interview-based research-blog and series of related events and writing commissions which interrogate the practices of performers that are responding to the challenging notion of contemporary borders and the shifting concept of Europe.

From February 2016, each month the blog publishes an interview with a live artist, academic, thinker or art professional, as a way to explore the debate on what the contemporary meaning of ‘border’ in live art is, how live artists are addressing this issue within Europe, and how the curatorial tool of the interview can be challenged. The multi- media interviews take a discursive and conversational approach in order to delve into the boundaries of the ever-developing notion of Europe and its proliferating and increasingly heterogeneous borders.
