Ever gone to a lecture and felt like you stepped in to the wrong class? Welcome to the Whitechapel’s irreverent Autumn term of live performances.

With some of the most influential artists of the 20th Century, A Short History of Performance – Part II spans over 40 years of performance art – from its explosion in the early 1960s to the present day. Showcasing artists who use words and ideas as their raw material, this season infiltrates the academy to explore the lecture as a work of art.

Casting the artist as professor, philosopher, revolutionary or business consultant these performers use and abuse the lecture format and question the very ideas of authority and truth. From Robert Morris’ investigation of Erwin Panofsky’s art historical lectures to Martha Rosler’s feminist take on the domestic, the season brings together re-enactments of pioneering performances, new commissions and important documentation. Tackling history, politics, feminism and art itself these will be the most exciting and unexpected lectures you have ever been to.

See EVENTS for more information and bookings for each performance.
