Radical bodies : Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955-1972 by Ninotchka Bennahum( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1960, Anna Halprin taught an experimental workshop attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer (along with Trisha Brown and other soon-to-be important artists) on her dance deck on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais, north of San Francisco. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful Dance Constructions had premiered in Yoko Ono's loft and Rainer had cofounded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies reunites Halprin, Forti, and Rainer for the first time inmore than fifty-five years. Dance was a fundamental part of the art world in the 1960s, the most volatile decade in American art, offering a radical image of bodily presence in a moment of revolutionary change. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer-all with Jewish roots-found themselves at the epicenter of this upheaval. Each, in her own tenacious, humorous, and critical way, created a radicalized vision for dance, dance making, and, ultimately, for music and the visual arts. Placing the body and performance at the center of debate, each developed corporeal languages and methodologies that continue to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day, enabling a critical practice that reinserts social and political issues into postmodern dance and art. 00Exhibition: Oakland Museum of California, Oakland, USA (29.04-29.08.2017)

Simone Forti Mit dem Körper denken by Simone Forti( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wie vielseitig die Künstlerin, Choreografin, Tänzerin und Schriftstellerin Simone Forti ist, zeigen die etwa 200 Arbeiten, die dieser schön bebilderte Band dokumentiert. Ihre Untersuchungen über die Beziehung von Objekt und Körper im Wechselspiel mit mentalen Abläufen und Sprache sind ein wichtiger Beitrag an der Schnittstelle zwischen Skulptur und Performance. Simone Forti (* 1935) hat sich in ihrer Arbeitsweise ganz dem Experiment und der Improvisation verschrieben. »Mich interessiert, was wir durch unsere Körper über die Dinge wissen«, so die Künstlerin, die als Schlüsselfigur des postmodernen Tanzes und der Minimal Art gilt. Zu ihren bekanntesten Werken zählen minimale Objekte aus Sperrholz und Seilen, etwa die berühmten »Dance Constructions« von 1960/61, die radikal neue Tänze hervorbrachten. Die gesamte künstlerische Bandbreite von Simone Forti zeigt sich zudem in Hologrammen, Zeichnungsserien, Soundarbeiten, Videos oder auch Dokumentationen von Performances. Experten und Wegbegleiter beleuchten profund die Grundlagen sowie neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse im Werk von Forti
Feelings are facts : the life of Yvonne Rainer( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Life of Yvonne Rainer tells the captivating story of one of America's most important artists. In 1962, as a founding member of Judson Dance Theater, Rainer revolutionized modern dance by introducing everyday movements like walking and running into the dance lexicon. Abandoning choreography in the ‘70s, Rainer introduced narrative techniques into American avant-garde film, turning that genre on its head, too. In Feelings Are Facts, we follow Rainer, now 82 and returned to choreography, as she continues to create vibrant, courageous, unpredictable dances that invite audiences to question basic assumptions about art and performance."
