Relationality and Performance: A Critical Genealogy

How can relationality be viewed as both a deeply structuring ethos of post-war Euro-American culture and a radical strategy for performance artists? This paper looks at explicitly relational performance art works by artists such as Yoko Ono, VALIE EXPORT, Adrian Piper, and Nao Bustamante, in relation to a critical genealogy of discourses around relationality, queer, feminist, and ethnic identifications and politics, and performativity in the post-war period.
