19.6 On Rupture


Issue editors: Peter Eckersall & Helena Grehan

SKU: ISSN: 1352-8165 Category:


On Rupture explores performances and contexts of art that create points of contestation, imaginative realignments and diversionary tactics. It negotiates politics and its relationship to performance studies and considers how this relationship might be strengthened by positing new modes of thinking and practice as well as reassessing radical histories and ideas.  The issue features critical and performative writing and documentation of recent performances and civic protests.  Responding to the neo-liberal tendency to value art only as a manifestation of a history and narrative of social/economic productivity On Rupture is an argument for art as a multidirectional presence, given to producing ruptures and therefore able to confront the flattening out of the political in a post-political landscape.
