One often hears the word ‘common’ invoked pejoratively in snobbish dismissals of the values of the people, sometimes echoed in the negative assumptions about popular cultural pleasures in academic art history and performance studies. During this final day of talks contributors will think more positively about the values of commonality in contemporary performance and culture. With Franco Bifo Berardi, Tania Bruguera, Ingo Cando, Simon Casson (of Duckie), Common Culture, and Tavia Nyong'o.

Trashing Performance
explores the power of creative expressions that wilfully debunk or ignore cultural ideals and hierarchies of critical value. This programme of events provide a space to think again about the value of irreverent and sometimes overlooked performance practices in public exchanges between different performance audiences and artists, academics, activists, and curators.

Trashing Performance
is second themed year of Performance Matters, a collaboration between the Live Art Development Agency, Goldsmiths, University of London, and the University of Roehampton. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
