Sportification è uno stunt-book, una pubblicazione performativa composta di euro-testi, un archivio vivente di 400 performance artistiche, 250 playground, messi in scena dal 1965 al 1999 in diverse città europee durante la vita del famoso tv game show Jeux Sans Frontières. Gli autori con un approccio ludico-artistico hanno testato molti campi da gioco. Le tre sezioni di indagine, Eurovision, Performativity e Playgrounds, organizzano i contenuti e contributi di una ricerca a lungo termine. Questo epculiare sistema comparativo tra arte e gioco stabilisce una nuova definizione inter-media della performance art europea, dove azioni gioco artistiche, performance e happening interagiscono con il mondo sub-bob televisivo.

Sportification is a stunt book, a performative publication composed of euro-texts, a living inventory of 400 performances and 250 playgrounds staged between 1965 and 1999 in several European cities, during the course of the TV game show Jeux Sans Frontières. The authors have used an artistic approach to test different playing fields with ludic actions. The results of a long term research are organized in three sections: Eurovisions, Performativity and Playgrounds. This unusual comparative system sets new grounds for an inter-media definition of European performance in which performances, happenings and art based game-actions interact with televised sub-pop culture.
