Abstract

The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space 2015 (PQ 2015) included a project, the Tribes walking exhibition. The Tribes was one of the three experimental additions to the main expositions of the Prague Quadrennial 2015. In the Tribes, the artefacts of the exposition were masked living people, while the exhibitions’ scenography were the public spaces of Prague. This book was conceived as a witness of the Tribes as well as a platform for an insightful analysis of the project. This volume has a double scope: First, to document the project and the experience of its participants — the artists, the performers and a select group of its audience. Second, this volume gives space to an analytical view on the Tribes, by unveiling the curator’s reflection and developing a dialogue that addresses the theory and practice of designing for the performing body and creating new dramaturgies through the costumed body in urban space.
