A set of prompts to consider when bringing a live work into a collection. The text was jointly authored by the participants in the final meeting of the research network Collecting the Performative, which examined emerging models for the conservation and documentation of artists’ performance and drew upon the practices of dance, theatre and activism in order to identify parallels in the concept of a work and related notions of authorship, authenticity, autonomy, documentation, memory, continuity and liveness.
