Product description

Product Description

Body and Self: Performance Art in Australia 1969-92 charts the historical course from the happenings of the 1960s, through body art in the 1970s, towards a more political body in the 1980s. Body & Self considers works by Karen Finley, Lyndal Jones, Mike Parr, Peter Kennedy, Bob Ramsay, Jim Cowley, Stuart Brisley, Vito Acconci, Hermann Nitsch, Kevin Mortensen, Jill Orr, Arthur Wicks Jude Walton, Ken Unsworth and Jill Scott among others. It maps the shifts and changes in critical theory and practice associated with postmodernism, and focuses primarily on the artistsí representations of the individual subject in the world. Marxism, feminism, structuralism, theories of the body and the ësubjectí, psychoanalysis and deconstruction are all considered in relation to an art practice concerned with the body. The book reconstructs the performances for the reader and is accompanied by over 150 images.
