PEGGY PHELAN UNMARKED THE POLITICS OF PERFORMANCE PDF

Shelves: performance-and-carcerality To begin with, I intend to re-read this book. In my first pass-through, I get the sense that Phelan is attempting to identify and theorize certain queer and feminist works that deal with the problem of representation and reproduction in the field of aesthetics. When the field of representation is always-already marked by the white-male gaze, what can art do? How can marginalized artists, who are unmarked within the economy of representation, use, or highlight, this quality of being unmarked?

January 1, ralowe i started reading this book as the same time as a friend who is interdisciplinary without a focus one could perhaps coax into the category of performance studies. January 1, Jessica Zu I only read one chapter as assigned by my professor. But I will re-read this work in the future. January 1, Sean Lally To begin with, I intend to re-read this book.

When the field of representation is always-already marked by the white-male gaze, what can art do? How can marginalized artists, who are unmarked within the economy of representation, use, or highlight, this quality of being unmarked? Rel To begin with, I intend to re-read this book.

Relatedly, how can these artists avoid or escape? The book was written in the early-mid nineties, so a lot of the examples which include Robert Mapplethorpe and Yvonne Rainer are drawn from the 80s.

In her chapter on Rainer, Phelan notes that the filmmaker occludes the "heroine" -- "the usual object of [the male] gaze" -- from the visual frame, leaving only her voice to haunt the film. Phelan asks, "If presence is registered not through a visible body but through a voice, an invisible but audible consciousness, how are the models of identification between spectators and their screen surrogates challenged?

The chapters in this book raise questions around visibility and the unmarked and unseen potential that lies in disappearance and invisibility.

This is a crucial work in the discussion of politics through performance theory.

Suggesting that there may be some political power in an active disappearance from the visual field, Phelan looks carefully at polirics of such absences in photography, film, theatre, the iconography of anti-abortion demonstrations and performance art.
