Sportification – Eurovisions, Performativity and Playgrounds
Publisher: Viaindustriae publishing
Size: 24×17 cm
Sportification is a stunt book, a performative publication composed of euro-texts, a living inventory of 400 performances and 250 playgrounds staged between 1965 and 1999 in several European cities, during the course of the TV game show Jeux Sans Frontières. The authors have used an artistic approach to test different playing fields with ludic actions. The results of a long term research are organized in three sections: Eurovisions, Performativity and Playgrounds. This unusual comparative system sets new grounds for an inter-media definition of European performance in which performances, happenings and art based game-actions interact with televised sub-pop culture.
