Can You Resist a Little Peek at the Freaky?
Welcome to the Strange and Macabre...
Performance art is a collaborative art form often expressing political or topical themes, usually presented live to an audience sometimes with or without audience participation. Originating in the 1970s as a fusion of several artistic media, non traditional performance art incorporates many mediums and may include random or orchestrated; painting, film, poetry, video, music, drama, costume, regalia and dance.

Do not just look at the work: everything is more spiritual and philosophical than a simple image.

Impact by Impression: Performance Art as Protest and Activism
Performance art may also be presented with very political tones and topics and often use strong visuals, symbolism, costume and dramatic action to communicate protestations and social activism. Protest art creates thoughtfulness on a subject and leaves a lasting impression with the audience where peaceful protests through the streets or sit ins, utilize signage and banners and large gatherings as visual demonstration by groups. It provokes emotional reactions in the observer in attempt to educate and persuade.
The best aspects about protest performance art is it is affordable and easy to teach and produce, being used as a tool for political and artistic communication all over the world and can through non linguistics transcend language and culture through use of colors, costume, movement, symbolism and action exactly like the G8 Summit Zombie Protest against Capitalism.
Performance Artists hold Zombie G20 Protest Against Capitalism 2019
Zombies are Real! They are Us! Freaks of Capitalism.
One observes the zombies en mass, most being familiar with zombie culture in television and horror film genres. For instance, through television series like Van Helsing and The Walking Dead, the image of the zombie is perceived as a grey, brainless, non thinking alien thing incapable of thought, only consumption, consumption and consumption and leaving bloody destruction and waste in their wasteful path.
The protest performance artists immediately draw upon these images and ideas through their costume and dramatic portrayal of dead people en mass, bones creaking, as a slap in the face to capitalism creating a mass working class of dead like slaves around the world. It is probably a more effective message to the world, than a crowd of protesters with various signage and inaudible shouting in the streets.
But, nonetheless, there is risk here and the protesters were dispersed with water cannon by police which seems extremely unnecessary but demonstrates a lack of comprehension or respect by police of freedom of public expression even in other parts of the world. Notice how the water cannon disbursement to scatter protesters away from the G8 Summit is conveniently left out of the online videos by media.
