Independent curator Guillaume Désanges suggests that a lecture can be considered as a living exhibition. A history of performance in 20 minutes aims at dividing the history of performance into 10 gestures which are played live: 1 – Appearing, 2 – Receiving., 3 – Holding back , 4- Escaping, 5 – Aiming, 6- Falling, 7 – Crying, 8 – Biting, 9- Empting oneself , 10 – Disappearing, discussing very subjectively those ten gestures.
