Abstract

The network is currently not only widely used for performative actions, but also extensively theorised. However, the artistic strategies in networked environments and the ways in which these new performance practices and cultural contexts can give rise to new design approaches have not been equally explored. This article therefore investigates the notion of dramaturgy as it provides a useful framework for addressing design strategies and performative relationships in networked environments. It is argued that dramaturgies suggest a robust method for understanding artistic practices in the network. The author refers to two different viewpoints that emerge in networked practice, which are entitled ;views from within' and ;views from without'. The article gives a brief overview of the history and the theories of the network. It then looks at the histories of dramaturgies in order to better understand artistic strategies, and in order to enhance collaborative work in network performance environments.
