Each image is accompanied by an extendedcaption. The works are organized thematically.* Painting Bodies, concerns work that shows the trace, stain or imprintof the artist's body in response to the paint-on-canvas tradition. * Gesturing Bodies, examines artists who transform the body - its acts,its gesture - into art, gesture, behavior and situations are used in placeof art objects.* Ritualistic and Transgressive Bodies, looks at work which uses thebody to enact challenges to the social expectations of the body, often inrituals that perform a cathartic function.Mutilation and sacrifice areused to rupture personal and social homogeneity. * Body Boundaries, examines boundaries between the individual body andthe social environment and between the inside and outside of the bodyitself. * Performing Identity, looks at issues of representation and identity. * Absent Bodies, explores absence and the mortality of the body throughphotography, casting, imprints or remnants of the body.* In Extended and Prosthetic Bodies, the body is extended throughprosthetics or technology, to explore cyberspace and alternative states ofconsciousness.Parallel to the illustrated works of art, this section combines texts bycritics who shaped the movement, from Lucy R. Lippard to Thomas McEvilley. Alongside these writings by philosophers and thinkers such as GeorgeBataille and Gilles Deleuze who have contributed on a theoretical level tothe discussion around the body - a prevalent theme in twentieth-centurycultural theory.THE ARTIST'S BODY is a powerful and poignant look at an increasinglysignificant movement and art form.This book is an essential referencethat examines some of the most cutting edge and innovative artists of ourtime.This new affordable edition is perfect for students of theater andart as well as anyone with an interest in contemporary art.

  • avanger
This book is utterly fascinating to page through. As an artist I find it extremely helpful since I am trying to work more with Performance based media. The book explains all types of way artists use their bodies then goes on to give examples of such work with captions, artists names, and a paragraph or two about the piece. There are at least 100 pieces in the book and all are documented thoroughly. Some works are better than others but that is to be expected in art! Some are quite graphic but hey it's art. I bought this as a gift and might buy one for myself!
  • Dancing Lion
The softcover re-issue of this book does not contain the vital essays that made the first edition so great. There's little point of this existing without the essays; you're left with mostly images without a cohesive understanding of how they relate.
  • Grillador
This is a really true find. To me, it is quite exceptional. Love the concepts and ideas of all the artists. I have been in the arts and photography for many years, and I also just decided this past year to complete a series of different photos of myself for the sake of posterity. Loved the book. To me most artist do think this way, though some might not admit it.
  • Micelhorav
This is so full of good art and writing. When I got back from touring the art of Europe, I bought this book, having seen it at several museums. When I first flipped through it, I recognized half of the images from work I'd seen in person at those museums. It's a very good book. I love it.
  • Opilar
Had to get this book for a class. It's interesting, that's very clear.
  • Hystana
This book is splendid for those interested in art- especially body and performance art. There are short blurbs about so many fascinating artists that are great for motivating further study. The bits of theory and pictures are great. This would make a fantastic coffee table book too (as long as your guests aren't easily offended- some of the pictures are graphic). I highly recommend this book.
  • Vudozilkree
this book is a must-have for anyone studying performance art. I was caught off guard by one thing, though: the paperback edition here omits the original artist's texts that the initial release included in the back. However, this is also CONSIDERABLY cheaper. For a poor college student like me, this is fantastic.
Bought this book for my husband who knows and loves performance art. Some photos a bit graphic but over all a well published art book.
