On the Threshold of Knowing: Lectures and Performances in Art and Academia (Paperback)

£36.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

In this in-depth analysis of artistic and academic lectures and performances, Lucia Rainer features an innovative conceptual and methodological tool that augments Goffman's Frame Analysis with a praxeological perspective. This way, she gives profound insight into how knowledge -- as a practice and a concept -- is associated with clarity rather than truth. Based on four case studies -- including John Cage's unpublished and unabridged audio recording of Lecture on Nothing -- the study explores how the concept of lecture performances, which adheres to two frames that never entirely blend, provides a space to (re-)negotiate the artistic-academic relationship.
