I Shudder to Think is an elucidation of the artist’s unique performance practice and philosophy, bringing together Cameron’s essay on art and autotopography with four of her major solo works. Opera for a small mammal (2014) is published here for the first time, while Bang! a critical fiction (2001) and Knowledge and Melancholy (2001) have been revised and updated for this edition. the proscenium (2006) also appears here with its Spanish translation.
