Methodologies of Presentation in Art and Dance
Maren Butte, Kirsten Maar, Fiona McGovern, Marie-France Rafael & Jörn Schafaff (Eds.)
Assign & Arrange is a challenging new publication examining the cross-pollination of visual arts and choreography. Since the 1960s, this melding can be observed in both the methods behind dance performances in art galleries and the work of visual artists who incorporate dramaturgy and choreography into their performances. The subject of a recent conference in Berlin, Assign & Arrange includes 12 essays by theoreticians, artists and choreographers on historical and current performance methodologies with perspectives from art history, dance studies and architecture. Mise-en-scène, situation, setting and installation are defined in relation to the aesthetic experience of different modes of presentation. The work of Simone Forti, Constantin Brancusi, Trisha Brown, Sophie Calle, and Janez Jansa among others is discussed by Ina Blom, Ramsay Burt, Maren Butte, Adrian Heathfield, Liz Kotz, Jörn Schafaff and Gregor Stemmrich, among others.
