Abstract:

This paper investigates the fate of the neo-avant-gardes in New York City during and after the sixties. The particular perspective I offer is that of the manifesto. Since the manifesto was one of the paradigmatic genres of the historical avant-garde, it can serve as an index of the repetitions, differences, and new forms invented by various avant-garde groups and individuals during the sixties. The further course of this new manifesto-driven avant-garde of the 60s is reflected in the foundational journal of performance studies, TDR, which participated in the manifesto-craze of the sixties and which tried to preserve this craze during the seventies and eighties, a time that witnessed a decline in manifestos. TDR's meandering path through this cultural terrain can thus indicate the transformations of the 60s avant-gardes in New York City up to the present.
