Performance art in China is known as xingwei yishu. In the 1990s, it constitutes a type of "behavioral art," which relates a direct action (xingdong) to an antagonizing "gesture" (xingwei) by the artist, who creates a work that directly stirs up the senses and sensibilities of the viewer. An expert on contemporary art in China and Indonesia, Berghuis previously worked as lecturer in Asian Art History at the University of Sydney (2008–2013), as the Robert H. Ho Curator of Chinese Art at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City (2013–2015), and as Director of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara, Museum.

Performance Art in China takes as its subject one of the most dynamic and controversial areas of experimental art practice in China. In his comprehensive study, Sydney-based theorist and art historian Thomas J. Berghuis introduces and investigates the idea of the "role of the mediated subject of the acting body in art," a notion grounded in the realization that the body is always present in art practice, as well as its subsequent, secondary representations. Through a series of in-depth case studies, Berghuis reveals how, during the past 25 years, Chinese performance artists have "acted out" their art, often in opposition to the principles governing correct behavior in the public domain. In addition to a 25-year chronology of events, a systematic index of places, names and key terms, as well as a bibliography and a glossary in English and Chinese, this study also offers the reader numerous previously unpublished photos and documents.
