Refers to works produced since the 1960s that employ the artists own body, or other people's bodies, as the medium of expression. May be in the form of performance art or conceptual art, where the artist uses his or her own body as a focus or theme. For visual works that are body modifications based on traditional or ancient practices, such as scarification or tattooing, prefer "body art (visual works, adornment)."
