  • Dance By André Lepecki, Dance s galvanizing and transformative presence in art and theory over the last decade becomes part of a broader investigation of its dialogue with modernism s legacies.This collection surveys the choreographic turn in the artistic imagination from the 1950s onwards, and in doing so outlines the philosophies of movement instrumental to the development of experimental danceDance s galvanizing and transformative presence in art and theory over the last decade becomes part of a broader investigation of its dialogue with modernism s legacies.This collection surveys the choreographic turn in the artistic imagination from the 1950s onwards, and in doing so outlines the philosophies of movement instrumental to the development of experimental dance By introducing and discussing the concepts of embodiment and corporeality, choreopolitics, and the notion of dance in an expanded field, Dance establishes the aesthetics and politics of dance as a major impetus in contemporary culture It offers testimonies and writings by influential visual artists whose work has taken inspiration from dance and choreography.Dance because of its ephemerality, corporeality, precariousness, scoring, and performativity is arguably the art form that most clearly engages the politics of aesthetics in contemporary culture Dance s ephemerality suggests the possibility of an escape from the regimes of commodification and fetishization in the arts Its corporeality can embody critiques of representation inscribed in bodies and subjects Its precariousness underlines the fragility of contemporary states of being Scoring links it with conceptual art, as language becomes the articulator for possible as well as impossible modes of action Finally, because dance always establishes a contract, or promise, between its choreographic planning and its actualization in movement, it reveals an essential performativity in its aesthetic project a central concern for both art and critical thought in our time.This title is published in collaboration with Sadler s Wells, London.

    1. Andre Lepecki s collection Dance, the newest volume in a series from MIT Press titled Documents of Contemporary Art, provides a welcome resource for scholars and practitioners of an art whose history, aesthetics, aims and expression often lacks adequate representation and consideration in public discourse Lepecki captures international texts from the early 1950s through 2011, written by dancers, choreographers and their collaborators, to explore the evolution and concerns of contemporary dance A [...]

    2. This is a really interesting collection of choreographers writing about dance, artists writing about dance, writers writing about other things that can be applied to dance speculative, experiential and historical I hope that this revival of interest in the dance world from the art work leads to something substantive rather than just being a passing trend Definitely worth reading.

    3. great collection of essays discussions of dance by people in the field from as far back as the 50s nice information, just wished the text was formatted in a eye pleasing easy to read way.
