Pathologies of hope: Baz Kershaw talks with Performance Paradigm

Grehan, H.ORCID: 0000-0002-9257-5615, Scheer, E. and Eckersall, P. (2007) Pathologies of hope: Baz Kershaw talks with Performance Paradigm. Performance Paradigm: A Journal of Performance & Contemporary Culture (3).



Performance Paradigm: As you know this issue is entitled ‘The End of Ethics: performance, politics, war’ in response to an emergent global socio-political dynamic initiated by a US led return to ‘situation ethics’ in which even the use of torture is seriously discussed as a defensible option for intelligence gathering. At the end of ethics what use is radical performance? Is there still room for a ‘pathological hope’? Can you talk about your own understanding of the relationships between politics, performance and ethics?
