UCLM / ARTEA  content in ECLAP.  July 2012

UCLM in ECLAP content is organized in videos, texts and photographs. This content is related to the Virtual Archive of Performing Arts (  created in 2005 by the research group ARTEA (UCLM) to provide students, teachers and professional critic and documentary material on contemporary artists and their contexts of production and exhibition. This is not an exhaustive archive, but a documentary proposal related to a defined historiographic purpose. The concept of "performing arts" to be handled is large, as covering everything that happens in real time and in the presence of spectators (including, therefore, hybrid works, instalactions, video-performances, etc.).
