A special edition of the Cooper Gallery periodical: a complexity of perspectives and positions by artists, curators and writers are brought together reflecting on and interrogating the necessarily shifting nature of identity and its other.
It examines the ‘performance of extremity’ as practices at the limits of the histories of performance and art, in performance art’s most fertile and prescient decade, the 1970s. Dominic Johnson recounts and analyses game-changing performance events by six artists: Kerry Trengove, Ulay, Genesis P-Orridge, Anne Bean, the Kipper Kids, and Stephen Cripps.
