I think it would be a good idea if we started compiling a bibliography of sources dedicated to exploring Adorno's thoughts on/for performance. Please add any and all sources, in whatever language, so that we can get a glimpse of this sub-field. Thanks.

I have published one article on the topic: Daddario, Will. "From Pseudo-Activity to Critique: Adorno, Philosophy, Participation." Performance Research 16.4 (2011): 124-135.

Great title, I'll seek that out. I've posted notes about an essay I published in 2007, but is it easier to set up a mini bibliography on Adorno and performance in the main bibliography for this site?

My preference would be to compile titles here and then, once the bibliography is fleshed out a bit, we paste the entire thing on the main bibliography site. Is that ok? What's the citation info for your 2007 essay?

Hi there: here are some of efforts, all of which have Adorno angles in them.

I'm so excited to find this page, this group and especially your articles... I'm very much looking forward to reading them! I published a book on Adorno and theatre some weeks ago. Unfortunately it's in German... But anyway: Nowak, Anja. Elemente einer Ästhetik des Theatralen in Adornos Ästhetischer Theorie. Würzburg: Königshausen & Neumann, 2012. 

Thanks, Anja. I'm excited to see that you've joined this group!

Hi Will, 

please take a look at my page at <worldwideweb dot unesp dot academia dot edu/fmc/> where you can find the link to my doctoral thesis on Adorno's Theory of Musical Reproduction [2010], added together with some papers of my performance research - unfortunately all of them in [Brazilian] portuguese. Regards, Frank.
