What is experimental today when 'performance art' is undergoing a renaissance around the world? What we are seeing today is a new investigation into ephemeral art that is challenging the assumptions of an older generation. When Marina Abramovic presented 7 Easy Pieces at Guggenheim (2005) she re-performed iconic works by other artists of her generation and in doing so opened a controversial dialogue about originality and authorship which split the art world. Today younger artists are pursuing collaborations, remediated performances, performance for screen, participatory work and re-performances that destabilise the role of the artist as auteur and the once enshrined notion of the artist's presence. They explore new approaches in the public sphere. Some practice is influenced by relational aesthetics that has affirmed the rituals of everyday life and promoted public engagement.
