BOOKPERFORMANCE

The Weird &The Absurd

Cigdem y Mirol has been writing the philosophy of The Weird & The Absurd (scare it is directly or indirectly against unquestioned authority) that is the ideal background of "bookperformance". The 1st item of Bookperformance Manifesto ultimately refers to it as follows

 

1- The book, here and now, with its author and reader, either uttered or silent, is a per­for­mance. Bookper­for­mance is a naked, fixed and tex­tual body. If move­ment is impos­si­ble for a fixed body, to turn the impos­si­ble into the pos­si­ble, it is nec­es­sary to attempt the weird and the absurd. In order to suc­cess­fully attempt the weird and the absurd, you must pos­sess not only a con­sid­er­able intel­li­gence but also an extra­or­di­nary courage for real­iz­ing and accept­ing the sig­nif­i­cant power of the weird and the absurd. To be able to do all these it is nec­es­sary to be a good reader.
