Performance Art from Futurism to Present
By RoseLee Goldberg
This was given to me when I came back to London to do my Masters in Performance Making in 2011 and it has been a wonderful tool in the understanding of performance art through it’s manifestos and history. It journeys through the establishment of Futurism and Constructivism in Russia at the turn of the 20th century through to the exploration of Identity in the early 1990’s. To me it is an in depth vocabulary of performance art history, mapping its evolution and continued development in parallel to social and political landscapes. A must for scholars and budding performance art historians.
