Abstract:

Since the 1960s, Joan Jonas (b. 1936 in New York) has been one of the pioneers of performance art. She was part of the New York art scene that included Richard Serra, Gordon Matta-Clark, John Cage, Philipp Glass, and Merce Cunningham. Her experimental installations involve projections, video, drawings, ambient sound, props, and masks. Based on a number of interviews, the volume provides insights into her artistic oeuvre. Ever since she represented the United States at the 2015 Venice Biennale, Joan Jonas has been known to a wider European public. In selected conversations she talks about her interdisciplinary approach and about the influences and impulses she absorbed from literature, music, traditional Japanese Noh theatre, and the rituals of foreign cultures. The discussions also touch on her collaborations with the experimental filmmaker Babette Mangolte and the Jazz musician Jason Moran. Yet another focus of this catalogue is on her new works and the live performances on the occasion of her exhibitions in London and Munich. Exhibition: Tate Modern, London, UK (14.03.-05.08.2018) / Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany (09.11.2018- 03.03.2019).

"Joan Jonas emerged in a rich and experimental 1960s New York art scene that included such luminaries as Richard Serra, Gordon Matta-Clark, John Cage, Philip Glass, and Merce Cunningham. Since that time Jonas has gained a peerless status as a pioneer of performance and video. Jonas's work typically encompasses video, performance, installation, sound, text, and drawing. Defying easy categorization, it engages with complex ideas of ritual, myth, and storytelling. In recent years Jonas has also become increasingly engaged with environmental issues, focusing on the animal world and the vulnerability of our planet. This new publication includes an introduction to Jonas's practice and brings together selected conversations from the last fourteen years, in which the artist talks about her interdisciplinary approach as well as the influences and impulses she has absorbed from literature, music, traditional Japanese Noh theater, and the rituals of foreign cultures."
