'Small Acts documents the work of fourteen performance artists who marked the personal and political resonances of the new Millennium in a series of site-specific actions. Contrasting with the epic, populist and homogenising nature of the official celebrations, these works focused on forgotten and ephemeral experiences, enacting small but significant interventions in the public sphere.
Small Acts examines how we frame and understand our experiences of art, time and society. A dynamic series of essays combining cultural commentary with fiction, art criticism and philosophy sits alongside the artists' work. These writings, like the works they complement, contest the stories that contemporary culture tells itself about time.' (back cover)

Includes contributors' biographies and an overview of the featured projects.

Note: In the chapter 'End Time Now', Adrian Heathfield discusses the work of artist Tehching Hsieh.
