Revolving Documents—Narrations of Beginnings, Recent Methods and Cross-Mappings of Performance Art

Softcover, 248 pages

PDF, 248 pages

Challenging dominant histories of the genre, this book focuses on translocal and transcultural connections, and seeks to generate, expand knowledge on different ­narrations of the beginnings of Performance Art. It brings together essays of leading international scholars, curators, and artists who explore the strategies and epistemic/historiographic tools with which museums, galleries, but also historians and theorists and artists, have recollected, reconstructed and represented, this important artistic and activist practice. Written from queer, feminist, and critical perspectives and thus offering multiple methodological frameworks, the publication comes as a result of an intensive dialogue between authors coming from various cultural and academic contexts such as: Switzerland, Slovakia, US, Israel, Germany, former Yugoslavia, UK, and Portgual.

With contributions by Andrea Bátorová, Sabine Gebhardt Fink, Séverine Fromaigeat, Oriana Fox, Stephen Greer, Dror Harari, Cláudia Madeira and Fernando Matos ­Oliveira, ­Andrej Mirčev, Dorothea Rust, Sandra Sykora, with an special contribution by Hanna B. Hölling, Jules Pelta Feldman, and Emilie Magnin and a conversation with Andrea ­Saemann, Chris Regn, Muda Mathis, and Margarit von Büren, and drawings by Lena Eriksson.
