Soak #4: Justin Hoover & Performance Art

We’ve just released Soak #4 with Justin Hoover — our first podcast of 2014!!

You can listen to it here, on SoundCloud.

In this soak, artist and curator Justin Hoover joins us to talk about performance art – what it is, why it’s important, and why it offends some people. We find out what happens when Justin convinces hundreds of people to perform in a mechanic’s pit (“100 Performances for the Hole”), and we see what happens when Justin makes performance art in a hot tub.

“Performance art is one of the oldest things that humanity has…. The history of the human race is one of performance.” – Justin Hoover
