Performa Publications

Founded by art historian and curator RoseLee Goldberg, Performa is the leading organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of twentieth-century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century. Publications have been an important component of Performa’s activities from the outset, and are the result of the organization's commitment to and belief in the importance of writing, documenting, educating, and publishing about performance art. Following each biennial, Performa self-publishes a 350-page book that provides an overview of current performance practices in contemporary art using the structure of the biennial, as well as the history and geography of the participating artists and collaborating organizations, alternative spaces, and performance sites as a framework. Performa’s publication program also includes artist monographs and project specific publications.
