Tanz. Bewegung. Geste. Bild

Dance. Movement. Gesture. Image

Dance. Movement. Gesture. Image is a project that seeks to contribute to a lively discourse via a symposium and performances, an interdisciplinary art education program and co-operation projects, for example with the John Cranko School in Stuttgart. Eighty works by internationally renowned artists and dancers from the 20th & 21st century provide an insight into the extraordinary network of relationships between dance and fine art.

Götz, Stephan von Huene, Wassily Kandinsky, Norbert Kricke, Sigalit Landau, László Moholy-Nagy, Tom Marioni, Ernst Wilhelm Nay, Vaslav Nijinsky, Morgan O’Hara, Nam June Paik, Bruce Nauman, Arnulf Rainer, Rosalie, Ulrike Rosenbach, Robert Schad, Kazuo Shiraga, KRH Sonderborg, Walter Stöhrer, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Jean Tinguely, Hann Trier, Lisa Truttmann / Verena Dürr, Cy Twombly, and Sasha Waltz.

The look and structure of the exhibition book support the process-based character of the exhibition: the flexicover with rounded spine and colored endpapers, the rounded corners and the pocket on the inside back cover are reminiscent of a notebook. It contains 16 pages left blank for your own notes, encouraging further enquiry and exploration. The design is deliberately light and spacious, with sections of text regularly interrupted by pages of quotes that encourage readers to pause and reflect. Dance and movement were also the inspiration for our selection of a fine, broken-style font, a digital transposition of handwriting. The expressive lines on the cover are silkscreened spot color.
