Since the beginning of the 1990s, the artists of the East Asian performance-art movement have been working on new forms of expression of the body which they interpret in photographs, videos, documentary films, digital art and live performances. Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the Queens Museum of Art presents a selection of this new art with the exhibition Translated Acts, showcasing the Multimedia works of 27 artists and artist groups from China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. This 114 page catalogue includes illustrations, general essays, short biographies and a short bibliography. Yu Yeon Kim on the origins of the exhibition Translated Acts "It seems to me that Western art history has failed terribly in the record of its relationship to non-European cultures and has a definite tendency to mistranslate, misinterpret and denigrate art that has come from Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America...Overall, contemporary performance art in East Asia, whether as a form of political protest or an expression of social and spiritual anguish, has taken cultural practice far beyond the walls of museum and gallery and causes us to reassess the way we derive meaning from art, and in particular the way we evaluate non-European art."

行為藝術

本頁的精選書目展示了藝術家、策展人和研究員實驗行為藝術的各種方式。對於某些人而言,行為藝術是一種違抗藝術商品化的方式;對主流敘事的實體干涉,或是逃避國家操控的演繹,而演出則成為在劇場、街頭、咖啡店或私人場地表達的抗議。對於另一些人而言,行為藝術是形式的實驗,是舞蹈、戲劇和電影的轉化、挪用或擴增。
