An Annotated Bibliography in Real Time: Performance Art in Quebec and Canada offers a bibliographic survey of writings, publications and printed matter on Quebec and Canadian performance art from the early 20th century to today. This university based research project, not only gathers and annotates but also questions how categories can be cross-read, revisited, and thought of in new ways. A key objective of the bibliography is to enable its future users to consider the various roles and complex networks that continue to shape the medium and practice of performance. This publication is a continuously growing resource that presents both the work of the artists and the history of the works’ reception in the past as well as the present, investigating the correlative relationship between the performer, the spectator and their given time(s). An Annotated Bibliography in Real Time offers a hybrid and discursive perspective on the historization of performance art and sheds light on performance’s many circumstances and modes of production, experience, and reception over time.
