Thesis abstract

Discovering the non-performative works of Tang Da Wu

My thesis explores Tang Da Wu's performance art practice and process and explores Tang's works beyond their material nature but instead on the questions they raise/ pose. Using examples from Tang's works, we explore the role of collaborative authorship in performance art.
