Performing Artefacts conference

As our world becomes increasingly digitised, we ask ‘what role do physical objects continue to play in our lived realities?’

This conference considers how peoples’ experiences and knowledge of ‘the real’ are communicated via performances involving artefacts – performances of the everyday, as well as activities explicitly labelled ‘performances.’

It looks at how ‘performance’ and ‘the real’ are understood with respect to artefacts, as well as at how and why peoples’ realities are communicated performatively using artefacts.
