Abstract (English)

Tannenbaum's introduction centres on the three artists' relation to sensory experience and to the traditions of performance art and minimalism. Wallis comments on the "prophylactic action" performed by the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) through its denial of funding for the exhibition; the author goes on to discuss the works with regard to gender identity, human body, cyborg, and time. Biographical notes. 92 bibl. ref.
