5.0 out of 5 stars great introduction to body art, aktion, and radical performance 29 Dec 2005
By Example: Mark Twain - Published on Amazon.com
thanks to the brit below for overstating the obvious. this book isnt about tattoos. but it most certainly isnt about modern dance. this book contains insightful commentary into the world of post ww2 radical performance art and an amazing collection of photos of stand out artists. the aktionists are shown, as are their american counterparts, and several more obscure artists. the update at the end also features some great performers of the present.

very worthwhile, very informative introduction the challenging, taboo smashing world of body art.

1.0 out of 5 stars I Am a Genius: Please Read My Review 14 Aug 2009
By William Johnston - Published on Amazon.com
I just threw this book off my balcony while screaming about how profoundly ridiculous it is. Now how do I apply for an NEA grant?
