November 2011

Performance Art - From Futurism to Present, the first serious study of performance art, now extensively revised, maps the rise of performance art through the 20th and 21st centuries. A new chapter examines the technological, political and aesthetic shifts in performance art that mark the early years of the 21st century, featuring artists from Maurizio Cattelan, Paul McCarthy, and Tania Bruguera, to Matthew Barney, Patty Chang, and Allora and Calzadilla. The recent astonishing increase in the number of performance works and venues around the world is placed in the wider historical context of major innovators in the field, from the Futurists and Dadaists to Yves Klein and Laurie Anderson. With performance considered one of the most important artistic forms of the 21st century, this is a timely update to the essential guide.
