˝RoseLee Goldberg's pioneering history, now brought completely up to date, with its lucid text, critical viewpoint and original documentation, including numerous illustrations never published before, is an essential reference. Performance's place in art history starts in tribal rituals, medieval passion plays and Renaissance spectacles. Contemporary work belongs to the tradition of the Italian and Russian Futurista, the Dadaisis and the Bauhaus performance workshops. John Cage, Piero Manzoni, Gilbert and George, and Laurie Anderson arc only a few of the many artists whose work is discussed, as well as the Happenings, Body and Conceptual Art from which recent performance developed. 'At long last, someone has captured in print that most ephemeral of art forma-performance. RoseLee Goldberg has charted new territory by presenting for the first time a clear and accurate history of... a continuous development of enormous consequence to the most adventurous twentieth century art' (Robert Rosenblum)˝
