What is it with the spectacular?
To find out, one has to go back to a historic period in modern art, that was seemingly defined by an unparalleled will to be anything but spectacular: the minimalism of the 1960s. Of course, doing little can be quite unspectacular, but doing very little is again the most spectacular thing.
So how is something unspectacular turning into something spectacular? Is it the thought, the speculation, or is it the sight, the spectacle?
Performance is a spectacle and a speculation telling the true story of how the American artist Robert Morris injured his head in 1961.
