Looks at the development of American avant-garde art. Considers feminist performance, particularly by Laurie Anderson, Eleanor Antin, and Carolee Schneemann; dance and collaboration as a new form of Gesamtkunstwerk; poets of the vernacular landscape and the postmodern sublime; and the application of Roland Barthes’s theories to Sayre’s own concepts of the relationship between photography and live art (ch 7).
