About the Author

Mechtild Widrich is Professor of Contemporary Art History at the University of Vienna


'Mechtild Widrich's astonishing and original book connects performance histories, feminist theory and speech act theory to elucidate the "event character" of public art by contemporary artists. Widrich advances a powerful argument about the stakes of spectatorship, temporality and collective memory.' Julia Bryan-Wilson, Associate Professor of Contemporary Art, University of California, Berkeley 'Rigorously researched and argued, this important book will become required reading not only on the history and theory of performance art but also on the history of the "performative" itself as it has transformed public art and commemoration.' Kirk Savage, Professor, History of Art & Architecture, University of Pittsburgh -- .
