abstract

Reenactment as curatorial practice or re-presentation of performances is a much-debated issue. Between the 1990s and the 2000s a particularly increase in these interests have let critics and scholars to deal with the re-staging of famous exhibitions – as “Live in Your Head. When Attitudes Become Form” – or re-performances of artists active in the 1960 and 1970s. Through case studies, such as certain episodes at the Venice Biennale or Yoko Ono and Marina Abramović’s actions, this essay compares opinions and debates, and is an attempt to examine if reenactmens are truly creative acts or just «a parody».
