The talk of Georg Schöllhammer will consider why performances are normally thought of as events or  processes of creative duration.  How might one think of these two different (but inseparable) conceptions of temporality – event and duration – and what forces might they carry in terms of their distinct cultural impact? The talk proceeds from the position that all cultural events are always-already traces of other, pre- or intra- or ex-ceding events; the more critical question looked at here is: what do these events activate in their singularity? In order to approach this question the presentation will try to speculate on the nature of performance transformation in time. What is left of ‘the proper’ on which the notion of appropriation is founded, in the passage of the event of performance through its many and various lives: its documentary and archival renditions, its resonances within the bodies of witnesses and reverberations in their oral testimonies? This is particularly interesting  concerning the social aspect of performance.
