ARTD 3094/7072G-Postwar Art: From World War II to 1989: Performative Strategies

OER for Mona Hadler's ART3094-Postwar Art: From World War II to 1989

About Performative Strategies

Unit 4 introduces the various performative strategies endemic to the late fifties and early sixties. Beginning with collaborations between the dancer Merce Cunningham, the musician John Cage and Rauschenberg we segue into Alan Kaprow and happenings, the Judson Church performers with their important cohort of female choreographers and dancers, and then to international Fluxus artists such as Yoko Ono and Nam June Paik.  Joseph Beuys’ early relationship to Fluxus initiates a section on later performance art. Finally EAT (Experiments in Art and Technology) opens the door to an examination of Postwar debates on science and technology.
