About this title:

Synopsis: A compendium of thirty original papers presented during an international colloquium of artists and theorists on the development of performance art on the world scene. Divided into two sections, this historic encounter between generations and disciplines provides a rare overview from the 1960s to today. The first section, 1958-1978, relates and interprets the principal events and protagonists of such movements as Fluxus, ZAJ, body art and action poetry. In the second section, 1978-1998, action art specialists from twenty-one countries relate their own specific experiences. (including The United States, Mexico, Australia, Spain and France). Documenting the early work of John Cage, Walter Marchetti, Charles Dreyfus and Dick Higgins as well as current practice by a wide range of artists, this profusely illustrated volume is essential reading for anyone interested in the historical phenomenon of performance art in the last half of the twentieth century. In English and French with some international texts also reproduced in their original language (Spanish, Hungarian, Polish).
