Performance Art From Futurism to the Present

Rose Lee Goldberg

This revised edition of RoseLee Goldberg’s performance, a pioneering history of the medium from the Futurists to the 1970’s, is completely updated to include the latest works of such artists as Laurie Anderson, Ann Magnusson, Robert Wilson, and the Japanese Butoh group. Goldberg discusses its origins in tribal rituals and passion plays and its twentieth-century revival by the Futurists, Surrealists, Dadaists, and Bauhaus artists. With over 170 illustrations of unique performances she traces its recent history from the turn of the century through to the events staged in the 1960s and 1970s.
