RoseLee Goldberg’s new large-format book on performance art—PERFORMANCE NOW—focuses on works made since 1999, when the art form made its move into museums, biennials, and art fairs.

The volume includes six texts—”Performance as Visual Art,” “World Citizenship: Performance as Global Language,” “Radical Action: On Performance and Politics,” “Dance After Choreography, Off Stage: New Theatre,” and “Performing Architecture”—and a rich selection of images.
