Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Johanna Burton, and Barbara Clausen will discuss their art historical research on performance from the 1960's to the 1980's in relation to performance art's place in the contemporary cultural landscape. They will analyze the changing issues and interests within the performative and art historical field, such as how the relationships between gesture and time, mediality and performativity, as well as appropriation and activism have developed and influenced performance art's function and potential in society today.
