Anne Bean: Self Etc. is the first major monograph about the performance work of artist Anne Bean, a noted international figure who has been working actively since the 1960s. Part of the Intellect Live series, co-published with the Live Art Development Agency, this book includes extensive visual documentation of Bean’s performances, critical essays by leading scholars of art and performance, and a series of new visual essays by the artist. Additional contributions include documentation of collaborations with influential artists, such as Bean’s Drawn Conversations, made at Franklin Furnace, New York, in collaboration with Harry Kipper, Karen Finley, Kim Jones, and Fiona Templeton; and TAPS: Improvisations with Paul Burwell, involving numerous artists, including Paul McCarthy, Steven Berkoff, Evan Parker, Brian Catling, Carlyle Reedy, Rose English, David Toop, Lol Coxhill, Jacky Lansley, and Maggie Nicols.
 
Lavishly illustrated and including previously unseen images, Anne Bean explores and expands the nature, form, and contexts that artistic collaboration can take.
Review Quotes
Contemporary Theatre Review
"A significant addition to the history of live art in the UK in general and to the work of Anne Bean in particular. . . . [The book] places Bean’s oeuvre into the history of experimental art and performance in the UK in the 1970s and 80s. . . . Beautifully illustrated with color photographs and visual essays made by Bean for this book, Self Etc. also provides a critical and conceptual framework for understanding her work."
