Index: Navigating the Database involved a series of interventions and performances in selected locations throughout the Jan van Eyck building. The project experimented with the computational processes and bureaucratic structures that underpin the day-to-day operations of the institution. It involved the installation of RFID key-card activated locks on various spaces, alongside a series of performances in which signers are asked to improvise based on various institutional data and record-keeping structures (the WIFI network log, archival records of managerial meetings, and files from the JVE’s database).
Performed by Kristine Paseka and Dean Parker.
