Introduction: From a cultural to a critical concept of performance -- Practice : performance a practice of relations -- Experience : art as experience or an art to experience? -- Object : acts of negations of the medium-specific art object -- Abstraction : task-dance's abstract ontology -- Structure : the performative structure-object.
"In this study, Josefine Wikstrom challenges a concept of performance that makes no difference between art and non-art and argues for a new concept. This book confronts and criticises the way in which the dominating concept of performance has been used in Art Theory, Performance- and Dance Studies. Through an analysis of 1960s performance practices, Wikstrom focuses specifically on task-dance and event-score practices as well as through examination of the key philosophical concepts that are inseparable from such a concept of art, and are necessary for the reconstruction of a critical concept of performance such as: practice, experience, objects, abstraction and structure. Practices of Relations in Event-Score and Task-Dance Practices will be of great interest to scholars, students and practitioner across dance, performance art, aesthetics and art theory"-- Provided by publisher.
