|Hayley Newman | Performancemania, 1990|
The book offers an overview of 34 performances made by the artist between 1994 and 2001 as well as including 21 ‘fake’ performances from Newman’s 1998 documentary series Connotations - Performance Images. Works presented in the book are discussed within Newman’s self-interview. Identifying itself as a performance, the self-interview presents an analysis of textuality in relation to the mediation of performance both within and beyond the event of action, looking at text as score, document, prediction or testament.
