Unmarked: The Politics of Performance

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Mar 9, 2004 - Performing Arts - 224 pages
1 Review
Unmarked is a controversial analysis of the fraught relation between political and representational visibility in contemporary culture. Written from and for the Left, Unmarked rethinks the claims of visibility politics through a feminist psychoanalytic examination of specific performance texts - including photography, painting, film, theatre and anti-abortion demonstrations.
