PERFORMANCE AND PERFORMERS
(Performance in video, video-performance, computer performance, performance
in Internet)

This section presents very heterogeneous artists referring to used media and
research results, which go from the video document to low definition analog
video, to digital elaborations, to multimedia performance, environments and
installations, performances in Internet. The common aspect is the centrality
of the body and/or of the voice, of sound and gesture aspects of the
concrete presence, even if some of the artists have realized also
not-performative works.
