Interdisciplinary Performance

Spanning a hundred years, 1910 – 2010, and three geographical locations – Europe, Japan and North America – this book examines the capacity of performance to bring new propositions for what a shared reality might look like to the common bank of knowledge. Accessibly written, it argues for a seamless continuity between philosophy/critical theory proper and thinking by doing. The book’s analysis of such landmark phenomena as the ready-made, action painting, intermedia, feminine writing, identity politics, cyborgian bio-art, electronic disturbance and ludic (h)activism make it an invaluable source for practical theorists.
