Minimum Being: open call for submissions


Associate Researcher Lisa Alexander is accepting video and sound submissions as part of her Potentials of Performance dialogue project, Minimum Being.

From now until the end of 2012, a bank of recordings of the performance of work will be collected from different countries across Europe. The minimum wage (or equivalent) in each country will provide the measure of time. The accumulation of material will set-up a dialogue, which articulates itself in the temporal enactment of labours in juxtaposition with each other, as tied to an economic measurement of time. The cut length of a recording will correspond to its actual labour value according to country at the time of filming.

For more information on the project, and to find out about how to submit, go to Lisa's first blog posting.
