Addressing such topics as the use and abuse of "American" images and the image of the United States itself, as a place, a product or an idea, this issue of "Performance Research" assesses the implications of America and its powerful impact on contemporary European culture. As it deconstructs American film, art, and performance from a variety of perspectives, "On America" debates the aesthetic forms and political strategies of the United States and the problems related to cultural predominance and displacement, identity and aesthetic practice.
Combining exciting and disturbing visual content with texts contributed by some of the world's most renowned scholars and performers, "Performance Research" provides a unique forum for multinational discourse among artists and academics. Now in its third year, this acclaimed journal is required reading for any serious student or practitioner working in the realm of performance.
