CURATED LIBRARIES

Performance Art Bookshelf

Performance Art Bookshelf

In the 1960s and 70s, obscure Happenings and early performances by such avant garde pioneers as Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Yoko Ono and Vito Acconci challenged object-oriented art production and changed the terms of contemporary art forever. In the ensuing decades, Performance Art has come so thoroughly into its own that it has its own biennial, which draws visitors and participants from around the world. Here is a selection of indispensable books for any Performance Art Library.

Edited with introduction and interviews by Carl Abrahamsson. Introduction by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.

Three decades of conversations with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, provocateur, artist, gender revolutionary and leader of the bands Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV and more

Published for legendary artist and musician Genesis Breyer P-Orridge’s 70th birthday in 2020, Sacred Intent gathers conversations between Breyer P-Orridge and his friend and collaborator, the Swedish author Carl Abrahamsson. From the first 1986 fanzine-based interview about current projects, philosophical insights, magical workings, international travels, art theory and gender revolutions, to 2019’s thoughts on life and death in the the shadow of battling leukaemia, Sacred Intent is a unique journey in which the art of conversation blooms to . . . .go to book page >>

A revelatory first monograph on the trailblazing Austrian transgender multimedia artist

Austrian artist Ashley Hans Scheirl (born 1956) overcomes the limitations of medium as fluidly as he deals with gender and cultural norms. This volume, the first comprehensive monograph on his work, contains over 100 images of his genre-bending work.

Scheirl achieved international fame in the late 1980s for his experimental films and videos. Now considered a trailblazer and a cult figure on the international queer and transgender artists' scene, Scheirl examines questions about his own identity by surmounting predefined genres and classifications. His vibrant compositions often feature images of body parts, . . . .go to book page >>

American performance legend Pope.L tackles complex themes of nationhood, race and unknowing

This book is a three-part report on a collaboration between artist Pope.L (born 1955) and curator Dieter Roelstraete exploring issues of connectedness, home, migration and art's relationship to knowledge.

It began in the spring of 2016 with an invitation, extended to the artist by Roelstraete, Monika Szewczyk and Adam Szymczyk, to participate in the 14th edition of Documenta. Pope.L's contribution was the immersive sound installation Whispering Campaign, consisting of thousands of hours of whispered content addressing nationhood and borders, and broadcast throughout Athens and Kassel using both speakers and . . . .go to book page >>

Cecilia Vicuńa: About to Happen

Text by Andrea Andersson, Lucy Lippard, Macarena Gómez-Barris. Interview by Julia Bryan-Wilson.

A new edition of artist-poet Cecilia Vicuńa’s artist's book on the politics of the sea

Beginning and ending at the edge of the ocean at the sacred mouth of the Aconcagua River, About to Happen serves as a lament as well as love letter to the sea. In this artist's book, Chilean-born artist and poet Cecilia Vicuńa weaves personal and ancestral memory while summoning the collective power to confront the economic disparities and environmental crises of the 21st century.

Collecting the detritus that washes up on shore, Vicuńa assembles out of the refuse tiny precarios and basuritas—little sculptures held together with nothing . . . .go to book page >>

How Soviet Bloc secret police surveilled performance art and happenings—and how artists responded

Subversion need not belong to a particular culture: it can come from artists who outwit the state or from intelligence agencies that infiltrate the art scene on behalf of the state. But what happens when the two sides meet? After Eastern Europe’s state security archives were opened, it became possible for this interaction to be studied in detail. Artists & Agents shows how the Stasi, the KGB and other state secret police monitored happenings, performance art and action art, and looks at the debates they had about the . . . .go to book page >>
