The aim of this book is to offer perspectives on performance art practice with a focus on teaching. This subject has been rarely approached in the literature and this book gives insights and inspiration for all those teaching performance art as well as to anyone else interested in this art form. The first part of the book comprises articles by five performance artist, scholars and teachers: professor Ray Langenbach, Dr Annette Arlander, Dr Hanna Järvinen, Dr Tero Nauha and professor Pilvi Porkola. Each article gives different perspectives on performance art. But as we know, performance does not happen in words but in action, so the second part of the book is a collection of performance art exercises from 44 artists functioning here as calls to act.
