There's also the other Goffman book, Stigma, which is relevant and 

I remember one oddity during the Vietnam war - there was an oddly 
apolitical stance, I think, among performance artists in the US; one could 
watch an Acconci piece, for example, and read political action into it, 
but it wasn't overt; what I remember in conversation with him was mostly 
discussions about art which was emerging out of modernism, but was still 
bound by a rather linear idea of success, style, and progress.
