This is a complete illustrated survey of Performance art from the 1960s to the present. The book presents Performance art from its first emergence in the work of Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni and Happenings, to the work of Hermann Nitsch, Joseph Beuys and the extraordinary opera spectacles of Robert Wilson; and from the breakthrough performances by Laurie Anderson that brought this art form to a wider public, to the theatricality of works by Pina Bausch.
