Perderse Juntos (Lost Together) is the first digital publication featuring the world of The PhotoPerformer. This easily accessible publication is the result of a 5 months long research taking place in Mexico during which Manuel Vason has developed as series of workshops, talks and exhibitions focused on the philosophy behind the PhotoPerformer and the concerns that animate his/her/its existence.
The publication, rich of photographic content, is written in Spanish and translated in English and was published by the Universidad Autonoma del Estate de Mexico in 2017.

Whilst in Poland for the opening of his exhibition Re-Performance. Between Performance and Photography at BWA Sokół Gallery in Nowy Sącz Manuel also gave a talk on the 25 March at the Galeria Bielska BWA in Bielsko-Biała alongside the great artist and collaborator Anne Seagrave.
– Domestic Collaboration is a series of domestic performances for the camera. It started as an exercise to provoke and visualise Vason’s and Lisa Cazzato Vieira’s dreams and it became a device to encourage abnormal behaviour and self analysis –
In the earlier years of his artistic career Manuel Vason collaborated with artist Lisa Cazzato Vieyra and under the artistic name Officina Humana they created the project Domestic Collaboration .
“Vason and Cazzato document actions, both domestic gestures – like yawning or eating – and those that are out of the ordinary – interventions into public space which seek to disrupt the very protocols of domestic life documented in the same project. Thus the collaboration harbours a productive tension: the familiar and mundane is presented in an overwhelmed relation to the exaggerated artifice of a disruptive activity, exposing perhaps the processes that work to alienate us from those acts that we might recognise as unconventional. The domestic collaboration work is often exhibited as light boxes, adorned with a logo and short strings of text, clearly miming advertising strategies. As adverts lacking a product, Officina Humana markets conventionally unmarketable ideas, and in doing so exposes consumer culture as one of the systems of production that indeed produces and maintains hierarchies of conformity and acceptability.” – Dominic Johnson, Senior Lecturer in Drama in the School of English and Drama, Queen Mary, University of London.
