Is All Said and Done?: Performing Genders on Contemporary Stage
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Culture and Aesthetics.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-7012-2543#sthash.UvyvRvTD.dpuf
2017 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The point of departure for this paper is approaches to the performing arts that have inspired recent generations of queer feminist artists, performers, protestors, and scholars. Philosopher Judith Butler and queer scholars have been responding to phenomena already present in queer culture by creating theoretical frameworks for them. Had it not been for Butler’s work, artists might not have had the understanding of gender queerness that they now have. Butler’s notion of the body not being a stable foundation for gender expression, and at the same time pointing out subversive strategies that challenge heteronormative conceptions, has been a productive stepping stone for queer feminist performance artists. Her insight has given them a way of thinking critically about gender, as well as other intersectional axes of power, such as age, class, disability, and race, all of which continues to be of great importance for the performing arts.
