Num país indeterminado decorre, com toda a normalidade, um processo eleitoral. No ultimate do dia, contados os votos, verifica-se que na capital cerca de 70% dos eleitores votaram branco. Repetidas as eleições no domingo seguinte, o número de votos brancos ultrapassa os 80%. Receoso e desconfiado, o governo, em vez de se interrogar sobre os motivos que terão os eleitores para votar branco, make a decision desencadear uma vasta operação policial para descobrir qual o foco infeccioso que está a minar a sua base política e eliminá-lo.

I can understand being troubled by this idea—that all portraits are performances—because it seems to imply some kind of artifice that conceals the truth about the sitter. But that’s not it at all. The point is that you can’t get at the thing itself, the real nature of the sitter, by stripping away the surface. The surface is all you’ve got. You can only get beyond the surface by working with the surface. All that you can do is to manipulate that surface—gesture, costume, expression—radically and correctly.
Mapplethorpe discovered his most revealing mirror/screen in the model of the African-American male nude. Sherman found her most potent mirror/screen in her own image, but this self-image is always already an image of the other. At once a plea for self-possession and a stark declaration of self-alienation, Sherman’s photography focuses on the destructive force of visibility for white women in this culture. At first, this leads her to create images of annihilation, emptiness, and waste within the cultural landscape (films, advertisements, pornography).
The following chapters are concerned with the performative politics operative in photographs, paintings, films, theatre, political protest, and performance art. By suggesting that all these forms of representation participate in a performative exchange I hope to broaden current disciplinary boundaries which define the field of the gaze, the animate and the inanimate, and the seen and the unseen. Performance is the art form which most fully understands the generative possibilities of disappearance.
