PERFORMANCE. Translation; originally published in Spanish by Asunto Impreso Ediciones, Buenos Aires, 2012. Diana Taylor. Duke University Press, Durham, 2016. 236 pp. with 75 ills. 21 x 14 cm. LC 2015-19796 ISBN 9780822359975 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 167181. Publisher's description: "Performance" has multiple and often overlapping meanings that signify a wide variety of social behaviors. In this invitation to reflect on the power of performance, Diana Taylor explores many of its uses and iterations: artistic, economic, sexual, political, and technological performance; the performance of everyday life; and the gendered, sexed, and racialized performance of bodies. This book performs its argument. Images and texts interact to show how performance is at once a creative act, a means to comprehend power, a method of transmitting memory and identity, and a way of understanding the world.
