Between Zones: On the Representation of the Performative and the Notation of Movement
RaphaŽl Gygax, Heike Munder
Distributed Art Pub Incorporated, 2010 - Art - 351 pages
"Between Zones" explores the possibilities of documenting time-based works. Examining the intersection of disciplines such as sculpture and installation, or reproducible media, such as film and photography, with the fields of dance, music and performance art, this publication outlines the theoretical underpinnings of these relationships. Based on her own practice as a documenter of the Judson Dance Theater, Babette Mangolte examines the relationship between movement and speed in the filming of performative processes; Raphael Gygax posits the notion that performances, their installation venues and the objects involved may be read as rituals, places of ritual and relics; and Verena Kuni investigates themes of temporality and transience in art, sound and music. These represent just a sampling of the diverse essays included in this book, by a range of scholars and practitioners in the performance fields.
