Unexperiences



Unexperiences are activated by performers who shift their attitudes and moods, embodying and slightly distorting suspicion, awe, confusion, pensiveness, sadness, boredom, joy, alienation, satisfaction, dissatisfaction, hypersensitivity and other possible states in which people can be. Sometimes the reactions seem to be related to the space, to other people, to objects, or to shared expectations and conventions. Unexperiences appear in art and non-art contexts where something else is already happening. The audience mingles with people who are unaware of the performance. Meetings are produced between two types of audiences, attentions, situations, performers, two degrees of performing and experiencing. People can become suspicious about who is performing but also the subjects of others' suspicion, becoming performers. Unexperiences affects the experience of having an experience – affecting the ways of encountering the work becomes the work. 

Unexperiences can appear uninvited at some venues – Unofficial Unworks.
