Publication Date 20 Nov 2003
Description This volume presents a challenge to existing assumptions about disability and artistic practice. In particular, it explores where cultural knowledge about disability leaves off, and the lived experience of difference begins. Petra Kuppers, herself an award-winning artist and theorist, investigates the ways in which disabled performers challenge, change and work with stereotypes through their work. She explores freak show fantasies and "medical theatre" as well as live art, webwork, theatre, dance, photography and installations, to cast an entirely new light on contemporary identity politics and aesthetics. This book explores some of the most pressing issues in performance, cultural and disability studies.
