Description Performance breaks the boundaries separating art and life, private and public, custom and taboo. Its anarchic experiments have put it at the forefront of the 20th-century avant-garde. In the four decades since the 1960s it has grown in popularity, and has radically influenced and altered not only all the other arts, but also popular culture, politics and social attitudes. Juxtaposing more than 300 startling images and texts, Performance presents the entire range of this multi-faceted and elusive art form. Arranged thematically, there are chapters on performance, politics and real life; theatre and music; the body, feminism and multiculturalism; dance; and the spoken word, video and rock ‘n’ roll. From Yves Klein and Piero Manzoni, to Joseph Beuys, Meredith Monk, Laurie Anderson, Pina Bausch, Matthew Barney, Bill T. Jones, Gilbert & George, Mona Hatoum, and many others, with works from Europe, the Americas, Japan and Australia, this is a landmark publication indispensable to all those interested in visual culture in the broadest sense. RoseLee Goldberg is the acknowledged authority on this subject through her pioneering survey Performance Art, also published by Thames and Hudson. Laurie Anderson is one of the most acclaimed performance artists working today.
