LINE DEATH DANCE

€ 15.00

As a way to commemorate transitions through performance making, Melanie Maar has composed Line Death Dance: a multi-phased ceremony of performances at the old and new Chocolate Factory Theaters in Queens, NY.

The book looks at the poetry of the 'live' and the potent relationship between deceptively simple compositional tools: bodies, time, space, light, and sound.

"ENTKUNSTUNG is an independent publication with a bold reflective attitude toward the contemporary art scene. With contributions in English and German, it is more of an artists’ forum of ideas in the form of a yearbook."
—do you read me?! (Berlin)

"[...] Now that there’s so much more art it makes sense that people would have the sensation of being awash in empty art. That is a good thing! This means that not only white men from Europe and America get to make art and that art is being made by everybody, everywhere and more people are getting to see it. Best of all of it is us who get to sort out what matters, what doesn’t, what is empty, what might be full, what has use [...]."
—JERRY SALTZ, VANITAS EST NOBIS

It also features studio visits and interviews, among them ALICJA KWADE, JASON GRINGLER, JEFF MILLS and JERRY SALTZ.

"History, as many philosophers and historians have said, is a problem that is conjugated in the present tense, and that makes use of the imperative form. Understanding the contemporary world and finding out as much as possible about its raison d‘être and the phenomena that characterise it is an obligation in times where there are fewer excuses for being passive, permissive, and indifferent. Instead of merely wondering at the complexity of our world, we must strengthen our ability to interpret it and criticise it. This is what the artists and authors present in this book are fostering with their envisions of life: creating possible worlds that are contributing to shaping a more thoughtful and collective present.

We hope you can see this book as we do: as an extension of memory; interpretations of our time that aspire to reinvent the world anew, "as a whole to be imagined".

"Because art is always reflection: there’s no art without thinking—consciously or unconsciously—, there’s no creation when there isn’t destruction: the understanding of how the world functions just to reinvent it anew. Just like that origami bird, its ashes are also its flight. That’s what I have found in this wonderful project called ENTKUNSTUNG: a lot of reflection, a lot of reinvention of many problems related not only to aesthetic theory and art criticism but also to politics and sociology and history and life as a whole, “as a whole to be imagined”, as William Shakespeare once said. This book is a precious opportunity to revisit what ENTKUNSTUNG has been doing, if you already knew it; or it is a fascinating door to discover its aims and conquests and aspirations as a project. Its incorruptible hope for the present, notwithstanding these horrible times in which we live. But that’s art too, isn’t it? A relief, a shelter, a justification of everything we stand for. Just read and enjoy, you won’t regret it. But if you do, so much the better".
