presents Jacob Wren / PME Art’s

A User’s Guide to Authenticity is a Feeling

To celebrate twenty years of PME-ART, co-artistic director Jacob Wren wrote a book entitled “Authenticity is a Feeling: My Life in PME-ART“, a compelling hybrid of history, memoir and performance theory. But books about performance never feel like enough on their own. Addressing performance requires performance. Therefore we also created A User’s Guide to Authenticity is a Feeling. An artist talk turned inside out, a performance asking: why do we do it, why do we continue to believe so stubbornly in the fragile but essential act of “being yourself in a performance situation,” and how do we continue to hope against hope that our destabilizing tangle of art and politics might still, in some small way, change the world. The show also documents the reactions of PME-ART’s past and current collaborators. What they agreed with and what they found unfair, demonstrating that collaborative dynamics are always complex.
