I admire the resilience of the arts sector—its agility and improvisation are often pulled off with success, disproportional to anemic budgets with robust audiences. Yet, I am also dismayed that the arts, once again, confronts a different crisis, an unprecedented crisis.

leer...la acciónhttp://www.geifco.org/A-Caballero/descargas/leerlaacción.pdf Este último documento....escrito en confinamiento...resume no solo los útimos conceptos que he podido extraer...del arte de acción...estos veinte años de trabajo, sino que hace de cierre del Archieve Action Art, al que le he dedicado esos años. Hecho el deposito, el legado, completo del Archieve y de mis escritos (biblioteca alberto caballero) al CENDEAC de Murcia, hago el deposito de vuestra confianza y dedicación a mi tarea...poder leer...la acción, más allá de la cotidianidad, de la acción de cada uno, de cada artista, de cada grupo, de cada evento. Lo digo en mis ultimas notas, con este cierre, tengo la impresión que también es un cierre 'a la acción' tal como se presentaba en estos últimos 20 años, ahora intentando acercarse a otros modos de registro, como la fotografía, el video, los objetos/restos y la instalación...hace de otro modo. Serán otros que darán cuenta de este proceso. Gracias por vuestro acompañamiento, tan preciado, seguimos en contacto. Alberto Caballero, Barcelona, postconfinamiento, julio del 2020.

Escáner Cultural N° 201 | ag.nov 2017 http://revista.escaner.cl/node/8120 VIAJES, VISITAS, INSTALACIONES...: CABELLO/CARCELLER: PAS DE DEUX Desde Barcelona Alberto Caballero Realizar ...la Acción Exponer/Estar de moda Debido al acontecimiento de 'la retrospectiva' dedicada a la pareja de artistas, primero en Marco de Vigo y luego en CA2M de Mostoles, Madrid, me llevó a informarme de las razones de dicha retrosptectiva, una de ellas, muy valiosa, es la impresionante cantidad de exposiciones individuales y colectivas en las que han participado, además de los carteles y los catálogos de dichas exposiciones. Surgen las preguntas: ¿Qué se expone? Obra, o/y se exponen la pareja de artistas, o/y se exponen las ideas, o es una manera de mantenerse 'de moda', estar de actualidad en 'discurso'. Esto nos lleva a : 'Del discurso a la exhibición', II Seminario Internacional Historia del arte y feminismo, octubre 2013, Chile. seguir leyendo en: http://patrimonioygenero.dibam.cl/…/articles-59170_archivo_… Exponer.se también se refiere a estar o no muy expuesto, mostrar o no demasiado, exponer todo o ir sacando cartas poco a poco. Si antes parecía que se trataba de una actitud política, ahora se trata de un modo de estrategia, no solo de los artitias cono obra individual sino de las parejas de artistas. Al par hacerse-ver se agrega el hacerse-escuchar y el hacerse-leer, incluso en entrevistas, hacerse-ver que luego se pueden leer en prensa general y especializada, les preguntan que leen, que ven, que escuchan. El como lo hacen (el objeto) el saber-hacer ha pasado de moda, el oficio de artista, el adquirir oficio (que venía de las artes plasticas y luego aplicadas) ya no funciona, ahora se llama 'artificio'. No se trata de hacer (de producir) el objeto, se trata de hacer 'con' el objeto como fetiche, el objeto ya está producido ahora el oficio es hacer con él, en su valor agregado, se le agrega lo ficticio. pareja/aparejo/aparato D' être le seul... s'appareiller, ante la caida del padre simbólico, surge la mujer, aquí no es así surge l'apareille, el aparato imaginario: el otro y lo mismo. En el mito no sería Narciso sino Eco, ya que Narciso s'apareiller con su propia imagen, y Eco es la pareja de la voz del otro. De aquí en más seria una 'recerca', una búsqueda, una investigación que aquí no tiene lugar. "El exhibicionismo femenino que respondería al voyerismo masculino, reprimido gracias a la ropa que será fetichizada, el fetichismo se acompaña siempre de una fuerte idealización y a veces a la sublimación." darse a ver: el travestismo, todo uso de la vestimenta participa de la función del travestimos:por un lado vela y por otro espera a ver. La mujer se da a ver. O sea por un lado se da a ver, por otro oculta, reprime gracias a la vestimenta fetichizada, o sea garantiza la feminidad. De allí que la mujer es singular, cuanto mas pierda la singularidad de lo que es como mujer, al mismo tiempos se alejara de la feminidad que era objeto de su busqueda. a lo que agrega: La feminidad siempre es singular y en escencia, fuera de la ley o de la norma...las mujeres una por una, cada una en su singularidad." Si 'las mujeres una por una, cada una en su singularidad', que sucede con la pareja, con el par de: se trata del doble, del otro como yo, del dos que se hace uno, o de la imposibilidad del dos...por consiguiente la busqueda del tres, del objeto externo, del fetiche, que cubra esa imposibilidad. leer el art ículo completo en pdfhttp://www.geifco.org/a-cab…/descargas/cabello-carceller.pdf
As you probably may not know, I debuted as a whirling dervish in the 2016 Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival at Defibrillator performance space. For those of you who still do not know me as a performance artist, here is a prelude of this 4 years ago in 2012, where I did my own performance art piece to my own music (called "Freeform Pitch Bend").
