#0 PERFORMING the Black Mountain ARCHIVE by Arnold Dreyblatt

Arnold Dreyblatt’s “Performing the Black Mountain Archive” is an artistic project which runs parallel to the exhibition “Black Mountain. An interdisciplinary experiment 1933 – 1957” and which incorporates the live performance of archival material as readings, concerts and performances within a pre-planned time structure at pre-determined locations within the exhibition. Ten art academies participate for a one to two-week period during which students are in residence within an Archive / Studio space. In reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of art education at Black Mountain, students from sculpture, painting, media art, sound art, music, dance, theater, typography and literature have been invited to take part. The diversity of activities and personalities at Black Mountain provide a fertile reservoir for the development of individual and group projects, both for public performances and for artistic research.
