Abstract

This chapter explores the implications of Slavoj Zizek's account of ideology for an understanding of queer performance. Drawing on Zizek's critique of Judith Butler's work on performativity, it re-reads Jose Esteban Munoz's notion of 'disidentification' as an account of radical performance that might better explain our attachment to regressive images and cultural norms.
