Happy monday and welcome to day 4 of the giveaway. We're only 4 days away from the opening of Rimini Protokoll, which means you have 3 more chances to enter to win 2 Complete Series Subscriptions. Here's today's question:

The contemporary arts are moving into a new era, but the field hasn’t figured out what to name it yet. What do you think we should call what happens after post-modernism?

Past art movements have been tied to Latin roots (eg fluxus) or have been spin-offs from a larger title (eg rococo). Along the lines of the latter, around the office we like to joke about po-po-mo. It can be playful, serious or anything.

...ilvs!

Here's what she had to say about the relationship between installations  that use performers  and live theater:

is not art but stationary objects, materials, 2D, 3D, imbued with the artists intent, vision, and overall energy anyways? why not just cut out the middle person, the messenger? why drink from the plastic bottle when the pond is right there within reach.
ok, i dont recommend drinking from ponds, but you get the point.

After making its world premiere here at OtB, "Awesome" took West   to Theatre Junction in Calgary last week.  Sounds like their inaugural trip went well:

"...of all the shows I have ever read or seen, never has anything been quite like West by  “Awesome ”, the last show of Theatre Junction Grand’s 2009/2010 season. They definitely saved the best for last." - Press+1

Congrats to the whole West crew!

....Kasia!

Here's what she thought is one of the biggest arts stories so far in 2010:

I may just be thinking locally here, but my mind immediately goes to 4Culture’s funding issues, and the push to get funding bills through the Legislature in a short, overloaded session (and then some!). Not particularly artistic, but it definitely got the policy nerd in me talking!
