Our mission is to distribute and archive works of time-based art. Each issue highlights artists working in new or experimental media, whose works are best documented in video or sound.

Marilyn Arsem

Marilyn Arsem has been creating live events since 1975, ranging from solo performances to large-scale works incorporating installation and performance. She has presented work throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America.

In her recent performances, Arsem has focused on creating site-specific works that respond to the history or politics of the country, engaging with the immediate landscape and materiality of the location. Sites have included a Cold War missile base in the US, a 15th century Turkish bath in Macedonia, an aluminum factory in Argentina, a fishing harbor in Taiwan, and the site of the Spanish landing in the Philippines.

Arsem is the founder of Mobius, Inc., a Boston-based collaborative of artists. She is on the faculty of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she heads the Performance Area.
