Research and Teaching In Performative Fine Arts
Carola Dertnig & Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein (Eds.)
Performing the Sentence brings into dialogue the ways that “performative thinking” has developed in different national and institutional contexts, within different disciplines in the arts, and the conditions under which it has developed in experimental art schools, from the 1960s to the present. This anthology is a collection of 21 essays and conversations either contributed or assembled through a 2010 symposium, that weaved in and out of the two key areas of research and teaching exploring in many voices the emergence of the performative and its evolution and definition today. The writings and interviews bring to light the conventions involved in the production, presentation, reception and historicization of performance art, as well as the specific cultural and political implications. Contributors include artists, academics, historians and critical thinkers such as dancer and choreographer Simone Forti, art and architectural historian Carrie Lambert-Beatty, performing artist Andrea Fraser, theorist on queer– and gender–based art Amelia Jones plus many more. Honored to present the second book in this prestigious and informative series produced by the respected Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.
