Performance Film

It is possible to identify a tendency in the highly conteste tradition of performance that is unconcerned to assert itself as a discrete category of art. Here, performance is approached as a method or procedure that can be applied to any creative discipline. Whereas contemporary theatre and cinema discourse tends to characterise performance as a component within a production, elsewhere, and most notably in the visual arts, performance is approached as a circumscribing merapraxis through which artistic production is always realised.
