PERFORMANCE ART HISTORY/THEORY

LIT 222

Performance Art History and Theory explores cultural experimentation, theoretical strategies, and ideological aims of performance art internationally; examines interchanges between artists' theories of performance, stylistic development, and impact in the context of cultural criticism and art history; traces interdisciplinary genealogies of performance globally; thinks about the body as a vehicle for aesthetic expression, communication, and information in its critique of social and political conditions; studies performance and gender, sexuality, race, and class; asks how performance alters the semiotics of visual culture and contributes to a paradigm shift from modernism to postmodernism.
