About the Author

Amelia Jones is an art historian, curator, and theorist. She is the author of several books, including Seeing Differently: A History and Theory of Identification and the Visual Arts. Adrian Heathfield is a writer and curator. His previous books include Live: Art and Performance and Out of Now. He is Professor of Performance and Visual Culture at the University of Roehampton, London.


The ephemeral nature of performance art has made its inclusion in the art historical record particularly difficult. Among the many challenges is the tendency to use a single photograph to stand in for a temporal event, which unintentionally corrupts memories of the live performance. This impressive volume edited by performance art experts Jones and Heathfield features essays that articulate key concepts and challenges. Recommended.

"Perform, Repeat, Record offers valuable--and at times long overdue--critical perspectives on issues of historicization and documentation of performance art."--Drama and Performance Studies

"[A] broad and thoughtful investigation of how the history of performative art should be documented and studied....The book covers a particularly international scope, with essays devoted to performance art in the U.S., Western Europe, South America, China, the Middle East, Australia, and the Soviet Union, including a timeline of Soviet and Post-Soviet performance and another of performance historiography-that is, surveys and re-performances. The final section records eleven conversations between scholars and performance artists, including Carolee Schneemann, Tehching Hsieh, Ron Athey, Janine Antoni and Marina Abromavic.... The book will be very useful for scholars of performance and can serve as an introduction to the history and questions around the field for performance artists themselves."
