Speed-dating the Avant-Garde: 15 Festivals in 30 Minutes

Barbara Moore is an independent scholar of seminal late 20th-century art alternatives such as performance and artists books. She was the first editor at Dick Higgins’s legendary Something Else Press, a rare-book dealer for thirty years specializing in printed manifestations of the avant-garde, and has written and lectured extensively on these subjects. For more than 55 years she has directed the vast Peter Moore photographic archive, from which the images in this lecture have been selected, and is currently writing a book about the archive and its role in the historical documentation of performance art.
