Activists in critical practices do not seek to build structures nor do they feel the need to cleave to prescribed ideologies. They are motivated by a sense of injustice but see themselves as activists in a generic sense, not activists for a particular single cause. , the ‘zaps’ of ACT-UP and the barebreasted marches of Lesbian Avengers. Performativity, therefore, does not necessarily simply mean ‘efficiency’ in the reproduction and maintenance of a market-dominated capitalist system. Whilst there are certain practices where performativity is linked in this way, there is also, as we see, scope for critical, oppositional practices.

The critical practices we have outlined overlap with lifestyle, confessional and even vocational practices. They are firmly located in marketisation and the contemporary culture of consumption. They do not dichotomise themselves from these, indeed, to a large extent they use the techniques of the market; they work through the culture of consumable and desirable images. They recognise their ‘tragic’ immersion in the conditions of the present. But they do this reflexively, ironically and parodically, performatively subverting that which is their very condition of possibility.
