The focus of the project is the documentation of action art and the possibility of its representation. A spectrum of approaches in contemporary art is tied to a specific space and time. It is also given that their presentation has to be associated with the documentation that is trying to convey, substitute or often replace the original work. One of the ways to get a certain idea of the passed action is to meet his author himself, or get to know his story. The exhibition attempts through audio recordings of individual authors´ stories to capture one personal aspect of transmission and at the same time offers an extended view of the realized performance.
