The question of the future of performance art is also tied to the accessibility of documents and their artefacts, their archiving and historiography as well as active practice and further development. But precisely this question of archiving and accessibility is still an open desideratum for many, which is why it has been discussed more and more widely in the specialist community in recent years. The Symposium on Archives of the Ephemeral. Thinking, practicing, networking - a debate on the accessibility of performance art in Switzerland, organized by PANCH, the Performance Art Network Switzerland, asks above all from an artistically motivated point of view about the state of affairs in Switzerland, for which both international and non-artistic positions, experiences and approaches to solutions are specifically examined.
