Work / Travail / Arbeid: Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker
This publication accompanies a newly commissioned project by the legendary Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker (b. 1960), which reimagines her stage piece Vortex Temporum for the exhibition space as a nine-week-long endeavor in technical acuity and physical prowess as much as conceptual audacity. Calling attention to and simultaneously dismantling the fundamental conditions of dance, Work / Travail / Arbeid transforms De Keersmaeker's choreography into a radically extended exhibition form, continually on display, while maintaining the meticulousness and vital relationship to music that she has long exemplified. Featuring newly commissioned essays, this multi-volume boxed catalogue mirrors the temporal structure of the exhibition, documenting the full duration of De Keersmaeker's ambitious project and parsing out its unique construction.
