Theatrical Fields : Critical Strategies in Performance, Film, and Video
edited by Ute Meta Bauer


Theatrical Fields brings together a selection of seminal texts, commissioned essays and exhibition materials that explore the political potential of ʻtheatricalityʼ.

This reader stems from a long-term curatorial research examining the deep-rooted connection between theatre and theory, juxtaposing artists and theoreticians from different generations and backgrounds who share a communal interest in the ʻtheatricalityʼ as a methodology to address questions of ideology, gender, power and resistance.

In this conception, ʻtheatricalityʼ does not refer strictly only to the theatre and the theatrical arts; rather, it also points to the constructedness of everyday life. Theatrical forms make visible how our realities are staged, and also how our histories are constructed and performed.

This reader has been conceived and edited by renowned curator, Ute Meta Bauer – Artistic Director of the 3rd Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2004); Co-Curator of documenta 11 (2001/2002); Professor and Dean of the School of Fine Art at the Royal College of Art, London (2012/2013); and since 2005 she has been an Associate Professor at MIT, Cambridge, United States.

Includes texts by: Antonin Artaud, Mikhail Bakhtin, Ute Meta Bauer, Bertolt Brecht, Giuliana Bruno, Jacques Derrida, Regis Durand, Josette Féral, Jean-François Lyotard, Eva Meyer, Timothy Murray, Katarina Pierre, Katharina Sykora, Marina Warner

Chance
Margaret Iversen (Ed.) - Documents of Contemporary Art series

The chance situation or random event—whether as a strategy or as a subject of investigation—has been central to many artists’ practices across a multiplicity of forms, including expressionism, automatism, the readymade, collage, surrealist and conceptual photography, fluxus event scores, film, audio and video, performance, and participatory artworks. But why—a century after Dada and Surrealism’s first systematic enquiries—does chance remain a key strategy in artists’ investigations into the contemporary world?The writings in this anthology examine the gap between intention and outcome, showing it to be crucial to the meaning of chance in art. The book provides a new critical context for chance procedures in art since 1900 and aims to answer such questions as why artists deliberately set up such a gap in their practice; what new possibilities this suggests; and why the viewer finds the art so engaging.Artists surveyed include: Vito Acconci, Bas Jan Ader, Francis Alÿs, William Anastasi, John Baldessari, Walead Beshty, Mark Boyle, George Brecht, Marcel Broodthaers, John Cage, Sophie Calle, Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Marcel Duchamp, Brian Eno, Fischli & Weiss, Ceal Floyer, Huang Yong Ping, Douglas Huebler, Allan Kaprow, Alison Knowles, Jiri Kovanda, Jorge Macchi, Christian Marclay, Cildo Meireles, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Yoko Ono, Gabriel Orozco, Cornelia Parker, Robert Rauschenberg, Gerhard Richter, Daniel Spoerri, Keith Tyson, Jennifer West, Ceryth Wyn Evans, La Monte Young
