In the 18 years since Texte zur Kunst first turned its attention to the field of performance, a lot has happened, to say the least. Today, performance refers to almost any act, willing or forced, and is used by the institutions the world over whose aim is often to solicit performative acts from consumers, whether they are an audience at an art event or a user of social media. With performance today comes the inevitable system of evaluation—likes, ratings, grades, followers, etc.—a fact that has made separating performance as an art, and its popularity, from the overpowering influence of the culture of evaluation. For this issue of Texte zur Kunst, "Performance Evaluation," we investigate the overlapping definitions of performance, following their ubiquity and uses in particular, in order to evaluate what performance means today, and what we mean when we call something a "performance."
