Afterall is pleased to present issue 33, Summer 2013, in which different approaches to the exhibition of performance are framed within a broader examination of the performative in contemporary art. Through a close reading of the work of artists such as Xavier Le Roy and Mark Leckey, this issue of Afterall explores the interaction and, at times, indiscernible borders between human bodies, inert objects, artworks and virtual beings in contemporary art practice. Accompanying essays look at the format of the lecture-performance and explore questions around the re-performance of historical works. Considerations of the work of Josef Dabernig and Simryn Gill expand the discussion of performance into the fields of image-making and the relationships between filmed and architectural space.
