Joachim Koester : of spirits and empty spaces by Thomas Caron( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
Starting in the mid-1990s, Joachim Koester developed an oeuvre that could be described as a complex web in which journalistic and historical research fuses with personal and fictive narratives. He belongs to an artists’ generation whose practices are based on what Hal Foster once described as the “archival approach.” Balancing the thin line between documentary and fiction, Koester’s films, photos, and installations reexamine and activate forgotten histories, failed utopias, and the obsolete. In his work, bygone counter-cultural movements reemerge in the same way that geographical and spiritual journeys are retraced. 00Exhibition: Institut d'Art contemporain, Villeurbanne, France (10.12.2011-19.02.2012)

Maybe one must begin with some particular places by Joachim Koester( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
For the book "Maybe one must begin with some particular places" that serves as an extension of Danish artist Joachim Koester's artworks and research on Jerzy Grotowski's (1933-199) mythical persona and experimental approach towards theater. Eugenio Barba refers to Grotowski's theatrical practice as an open ground for physical and psychological experimentation, where the actor seeks to transform himself into another man/woman (in front of the audience) or either transforms herself into an animal or an object.1In Growtoski's sudden move from Paratheater to Theater of Sources in the late 1970's, Grotowski became interested in transcultural rituals and shamanic practices, such as voodoo practitioners in Haiti, Huichol Indians in Mexico, and Indian yogis. For Grotowski, ritual and theater depart from the concept of "ritual" in ancient civilizations, considered the first understanding of drama. As a result, Grotowski abandoned theater to create a system of "motions" and "spatial practices" that made him one of the main contributors to contemporary performance, combining anthropology, nature, and ritual
