BOMNIN-HERNANDEZ, Amalina. Action art: a midway path between a constructed asistematicity and political incorrection. Índex [online]. 2018, n.6, pp.52-58. ISSN 2477-9199.

The action art had its origin in the exercises of the historical vanguards for denying the art its autonomous status. On the other hand, on many occasions, theory and criticism have insisted on addressing their trajectory as unsystematic; evaluating the actions that took place after the Second World War as the germ of the genre. According to this analysis, its supposedly emerging character from the sixties, would be associated with the social and political events of the Cold War and, therefore, respond more to a framework of activism associated with repression, police intervention, political reforms, than to a properly aesthetic field. The text reflects on the historiography of the genre and points out through the various movements the display of performances, happenings, and interventions, to emphasize that the allusion to a supposed asistematicity responds to a theoretical construction that, among other aspects, favored the radical turn of the so-called Second Vanguards towards mercantile paths.
