While it's impossible to fully catalog a genre of art, this book is a great start, especially for beginners. I use this book in my Performance Art seminar for undergrads, and it is always illuminating for the students.

I think they appreciate the traditional step-by-step chronological approach of the book as they learn about this wildly untraditional genre.

I was just kind of fascinated with Performance art when I first bought the book, but now it's all I can think about. This book is awesome for anyone that is even remotely interested in performance art. Yes the cover seems a bit low-fi, but the content inside is engaging and awesome!

Well organized, interesting and easy to read even if one hasn't previous experience in the subject. Has a lot of photographs to illustrate the text.

Simply put, you need to buy this book with caution.
The greatest advantage of this book is its documentary quality, BUT at the same time its greatest weakness. For a book of art survey like this one, the majority of readers are really expecting systematic, organized statements of art happenings and insightful, thoughtful criticism, because these are the things that make you think, think seriously about arts. However, the author of "Performance Art" seems to take an very different approach. The author writes as if he/she is writing for a professional newspaper column, babysitting a bunch of hard-core art historians who are curious and eager to understand the nitty-gritty of performance art. Indulging in unraveled jargon and rarely known events, the author tries his/her best to show narcissism in his/her unique capability to recount art history in a visually sarcastic and documentary way. If you are someone who already got an PHD degree in art history, this is probably the best book for you, as I feel the author's thirst to initiate a professional conversation between his texts and audience. Otherwise, you should think twice because I found the style of the book constantly building a concrete wall between me and the history of performance, as if he/she is saying, "if you don't understand what I am talking about, you are not qualified to understand performance art".

Delivered as described and on time. Thank you.

The book came right before I needed it for class and was in great condition.

I still laugh every time I look at the back of the book that has a review from D.J. Spooky as I picture a Halloween DJ reading about performance art to get new ideas. Of course that's likely not the case, but it's still great.

There's a lot of problematic things with this book. It glosses over race, gender, and class in a way that leaves the reader confused and hurt. Goldberg also brings up people without introducing them as if we are meant to know every artist in the past 200 years. Its a good guide if you're taking a class with a professor who knows the history and will dive into race, gender and class issues.
Great!
