Course Description

ARTH 239
History of Performance Art
Spring

Performance art developed in the '60s, a highly theatrical as well as political decade. The course examines work by contemporary performance artists, primarily in the United States, and earlier performance history beginning with the European personality and theatrical experiments of the Dada, Surrealist, Futurist, and Russian revolutionary art movements. Performance art is also placed in a wider context of experimental theater, dance and music, and the Dandy tradition. Online course materials.
