-in-the-world. Entering the space of maintenance work, Ukeles employs performance art to draw undervalued labour into a space of critical aesthetic consideration.

However, as expensive flops like Nightbreed proved, trying to create a Barker-branded franchise spanning films and other forms of merchandise could be problematic. What is important to focus on, then, is that the rides were less about extending a specific Barker-written franchise like

My focus here is on the band Throbbing Gristle (typically abbreviated as ‘TG’) who created what they called ‘industrial’ music. TG, formed in 1975, originated as the musical incarnation of the performance art group, COUM Transmissions. Initially conceived as a

It was also during this period, however, that Vaucher developed the pattern of working alone for extended periods of time. She recalls the supportiveness and flexibility she was shown by staff.

a whole has presented itself … the circus self-image is at heart a paradoxical one since it promotes an idea of itself in the popular imagination as embodying a lifestyle unfettered by conventionality or by social and legal restraint: a freedom which was echoed in performances which foregrounded the illusion of ease. Behind this image lie levels of physical discipline, bodily regulation and hardship which are unrivalled by any other western performance art. 37

Gothic is that at present it remains a popular art form, from graffiti to performance art, from altered books to cinema, and from skull bracelets to prestigious fashion shows held in international museums. It is possible that, partly because of its popularity and ubiquity, it has been largely unnoticed that recent forms of Gothic visual expression comprise vital links between the ‘Sensation’ art shows
