Grant Watson is commissioned by If I Can’t Dance to undertake one of four Performance in Residence research projects as part of Edition V – Appropriation and Dedication (2013–2014).
How We Behave is a research project undertaken by curator Grant Watson, as part of the Performance in Residence programme. The project centres upon an interview with Michel Foucault published in Vanity Fair in 1983, in which Foucault discusses his ideas around subjectivity and aesthetics. Foucault’s provocation that ‘bios could be the material for a work of art,’ is taken as the departure point for an extensive interview project traversing a number of cities around the world including New York, São Paulo, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Mumbai. The resulting interview archive forms the basis of a presentation series relating individual testimony to broader narratives of contemporary subjectivity.
