- ROSSA Boryana D., About the Living and the Dead, 2006.

Documentation has become more and more important for the history of art especially for the history of performance art. The spectators participate in the production of ‘‘art mythology’’. An enormous amount ot tech devices are now easily accessible. The opportunity the devices give up to create artifacts of ‘‘personal memory’’ about the art piece makes us see ourselves as mythology ‘‘producers’’ rather than passive ‘‘mythology readers.’’ Although documentation in exhibition spaces is usually not permitted, people always take photos with their cellphones and post them to their web blogs, thus becoming both : documentarians and mythologists.

or this series of performances the public was asked to document the action. The documentation is collected as a ‘‘personal/historical view of the performance.’’
