This issue looks at the notion of risk and how it relates to performance at the level of the artist’s work and the physical, cultural and political context in which the work takes place. Risk, and related ideas of transgression, shock, challenge and experiment have been central to all areas of performance practice in recent years, yet the idea of what risk means, its relationship to the wider culture and to the identity of the artist is in constant flux. This issue explores risk taken and encountered in a variety of practices and disciplines.
