A workshop on the intersection between law and performance art

Is all law a performance? Are rights just a way of performing our legal humanity? Is performance art as a practice similar to that of law? Are we interested in extracting the laws of performance art?

An afternoon workshop on the intersection between law and performance art, with performances and presentations organised by The Westminster Law & Theory Lab around the visit of Prof Stone Peters, author of Law as Performance (Oxford UP, 2022)
