Performance

Artist/Author: Diana Taylor | Reference: P2913 | ISBN: 978-0822359975 | Type: Publication

In this invitation to reflect on the power of performance, Diana Taylor explores many of the 'performance' uses and iterations: artistic, economic, sexual, political, and technological performance; the performance of everyday life; and the gendered, sexed, and racialized performance of bodies. Images and texts interact to show how performance is at once a creative act, a means to comprehend power, a method of transmitting memory and identity, and a way of understanding the world.

Sensible Politics: The Visual Culture of Nongovernmental Activism

Editor: Meg McLagan and Yates McKee | Reference: P2800 | ISBN: 978-1935408246 | Type: Publication

A diverse group of contributors, from art historians, anthropologists, and political theorists to artists, filmmakers, and architects, considers the interaction of politics and the visual in such topics as the political consequences of a photograph taken by an Israeli soldier in a Palestinian house in Ramallah; AIDS activism; images of social suffering in Iran; the “forensic architecture” of claims to truth; and the “Make Poverty History” campaign. Transcending disciplines, they trace a broader image complex whereby politics is brought to visibility through the mediation of specific cultural forms that mix the legal and the visual, the hermeneutic and the technical, the political and the aesthetic.
