Performance Now, 2019

Hannes Egger, Performance Now, 2019

Performance Now is an invitation to put on the red sweater and perform a clearly defined performance based on Judith Butler’s gender theory and its transfer of the performance concept into the cultural philosophy. According to Butler, gender identity – like identity in general – is not ontologically or biologically given but performative.
