Performance Art

In this edition of Culture Clock we highlight selections from our ongoing coverage of Performance Art and its evolution over the past decades.  Performance Art came to maturity in the mid 1970s and can be traced back through movements like Fluxus and Joseph Beuys' "How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare."
