Abstract (English)

''This volume brings together seminal texts written over the first 25 years of the magazine. Focuses on emerging art practices since its inception, Parachute sought to develop new critical language that could deal with performance. If the early texts refer to the concept of performativity in kinship with the philosophy of language of J.L. Austin and trans-medium approach, others address questions of genre, feminist and cultural studies, globalization, and institutional critique. The essays discuss works by artists such as Yvonne Riner, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Kendell Geers, General Idea, and Matthew Barney.''-- p. [4] of cover.
