Within the scope of the report titled "The Use of the Body in the Field of Video Performance", the relationship between "Performance" and "Video Performance" was examined based on the concept of body. It has been tried to explain the changes and transformations that the concept of body, which is the common point of this relationship, has undergone in the process from past to present. In this process, which dates back to primitive times, the body has existed as the main subject of art. Although the use of the body in art has different forms and different meanings, it has always existed and in the process extending after modernism, the body has become one of the most basic means of expression for artists who want to express and question the subjects they have taken issue with, especially with Performance Art. Thanks to the new production techniques that video offers to art, performance artists, unlike artists who produce in the field of video, have created a new space for themselves with Video Performance at the point where Performance Art and Video Art meet. In the field of Video Performance, the body has made the meanings and definitions attributed to it questionable in a different dimension with the display of the unseen. Thus, the body, which has been a subject of discussion within the scope of philosophy, sociology, psychology, politics and religious beliefs for centuries and which is directly involved in art with Performance Art, has been reconsidered with different production forms thanks to video technology and the possibilities offered by this technology, and for artists who use their bodies in their artistic productions, it has led to the diversification of the ways of producing thoughts through the body. Within the scope of this report, the ways of producing thoughts through the body were questioned through Video Performance and these inquiries were supported by personal studies.
