Connecting performance and performativity

does it work?

Sybille Krämer

pp. 223-237

Among the many approaches to the study of the performative, we can identify two main areas of performative theory: analyses of, on the one hand, linguistic "performativity" and, on the other, artistic "performances." It is at this intersection of linguistic and artistic performance that emerges an idea of the performative as rooted in a " making-perceptible". In the following I will sketch out this aisthetic emphasis in the concept of the performative.
