About the Performance Course at the Academy
Inaugurated in 2022, the Performance Course is an elective course for the 3rd year bachelor students of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, tutored by the PhD researcher Yuki Okumura. Aiming at opening up one's working process to chance through instructed actions after conceptual art, it focuses on the artist's doing rather than showing, exploring performance as a way of self-reflection rather than that of self-expression.
