There is no such word as PERFORMATIVE
As an artist who occassionally does a piece of Live Art and has had much to do with the Live Art Development Agency and other Live Art & Performance types, I have vaguely wondered what 'performative' means, how it is different from 'performance' and if I or my work are/is performative. Now I can reveal - THERE IS NO SUCH WORD! So please stop using it!
