This panel examines ‘the performative role of language in our society’. As performance often addresses questions of power structures and agency, does the medium in fact reflect growing public interest in social activism? What role can performance art play in this field, and how are the artworld’s protagonists, including museum board members and patrons, responding to the growing role of participatory civil action in both artists’ practices and the public sphere?
