This work analyzes the activities of the Merce Cunningham Dance Foundation to address the confluence of many issues facing artists, arts organizations and art policy-makers in the United States : the relationship of present creative practice to historical documentation; the interaction between the organizing bodies of policy and administration and the human bodies that enact and participate in creative work; and the institutionalization of memory and community.

The Past Is The Present It S The Future Too

The term 'temporality' often refers to the traditional mode of the way time is: a linear procession of past, present and future. As philosophers will note, this is not always the case. Christine Ross builds on current philosophical and theoretical examinations of time and applies them to the field of contemporary art: films, video installations, sculpture and performance works. Ross first provides an interdisciplinary overview of contemporary studies on time, focusing on findings in philosophy, psychology, sociology, communications, history, postcolonial studies, and ecology. She then illustrates how contemporary artistic practices play around with what we consider linear time. Engaging the work of artists such as Guido van der Werve, Melik Ohanian, Harun Farocki, and Stan Douglas, allows investigation though the art, as opposed to having art taking an ancillary role. The Past is the Present; It's the Future Too forces the reader to understand the complexities of the significance of temporal development in new artistic practices.

Die reich bebilderte Publikation schlägt in ihrem Text den Bogen vom Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts bis in die Gegenwart. Beginnend mit den italienischen Futuristen schildert die Autorin profund die parallele Entwicklung der nachrevolutionären russischen Futuristen, der schweizerischen Dadaisten und der französischen Surrealisten bis hin zum deutschen Bauhaus. In der Fülle an Neuerungen auf literarischem, musikalischem und darstellendem Gebiet zeigt sich der revolutionäre Elan der Kunst der Zwischenkriegszeit. Im zweiten Teil der Publikation beschäftigt sich die Autorin eingehend und kenntnisreich mit den Formen der Performance Art von der Nachkriegszeit bis in die 1970er und 1980er Jahre. Der Band schließt mit ausführlichen Bemerkungen zu den Veränderungen im 21. Jahrhundert vor dem Hintergrund der neuen Möglichkeiten des digitalen Zeitalters.

Dance Improvisations is a book for teachers of dance and acting, choreographers, directors, and dance therapists. Systematically offering a complete range of ways to explore dance, it can be used as a syllabus or as a reference for groups of all ages and all levels of experience. The first chapter in Dance Improvisations introduces ways for a group to practice working together and for the dancers to gain an effective awareness of each other. These preliminaries are followed by a body of improvisational problems, organized into three main areas: Space, Time, and Movement Invention. Each area is presented as a series of topics. Each topic progresses from individual exploration to more formally structured group improvisations, with emphasis on learning to work as a group toward common structural goals. This book is the first in its field to go beyond the pursuit of physical inventiveness to nurture the development of structural intuition. Joyce Morgenroth has succeeded in presenting improvisation in a way that is rational and methodical as well as inventive and personal - in the conviction that improvisation at its best is comprised of both form and fancy.
