"From his roots in such performance-based practices as cabaret, mime and avant-garde theatre to 'Ziggy Stardust', his revolutionary tour that synthesised theatre, music and contemporary art into a rock spectacle, as well as his innovative video collaborations, and his work in cinema and theatre, David Bowie, Artist presents Bowie as one of the most iconoclastic cultural producers of the 20th century."
