THE ART NEWSPAPER Art Basel Daily Edition published an article in June on How to collect performance art, the day before it was the subject of a debate in an Art Basel Conversation. Klaus Biesenbach, chief curator of Media and Performance Art at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA) and Conversation panelist said: When you look back you understand that video art was the 'golden frame' of the 1990s. In 2009 we look back on the first ten years of this century and it is performance… At some point it reached a critical mass and awareness so that now it seems to be everywhere.” MoMA has, in the past year, added performance art to its former media department and acquired new works.
