Beginning with such key artists as Marcel Duchamp and Jackson Pollock, this book examines a selection of the most significant players who have used their bodies to create their art – among them, in the 1960s Carolee Scheemann, Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Yoko Ono; in the 1970s, Chris Burden, Ana Mendieta, Vito Acconci, Marina Abramovic; up to the turn of the millennium, Matthew Barney, Marc Quinn, Tracey Emin and Mona Hatoum.

The Artist’s Body is divided into survey (by Amelia Jones), works (each work is accompanied by an extended captions), and thematic chapters (such as Painting Bodies, Gesturing Bodies) from critics and writers who helped shape the movement.
