Do Not Give Way to Evil


Photographs of the South Bronx, 1979-1987

Powerhouse Books, 2008 – 143 Seiten

The Bronx had almost stopped burning by 1979. The intensity and extent of the devastation permeated the landscape. It was an awesome mess, not just another neighborhood, but another realm, visible but incomprehensible. The Bronx came undone in a confluence of unfortunate circumstances: the life cycle of community, rampant city planning, economic change, racism, poverty, failed hopes, drugs, crime, abandonment, counterproductive government response. It was destroyed for profit. The entire story has yet to be told.

Performing Stories: Erzählen in Theater und Performance

CoverNina Tecklenburg

transcript Verlag, 2014 – 348 Seiten

Spuren lesen, Dinge sammeln, Erinnerungen kartografieren, um die Wette autobiografieren: In den performativen Künsten lassen sich eine Reihe neuer, nicht-literarischer Erzählpraktiken beobachten, die sich weder unter einer dramatischen noch einer postdramatischen Perspektive subsumieren lassen. Vor dem Hintergrund innovativer theatraler Erzählformen entwickelt Nina Tecklenburg einen alternativen Zugang zum Narrativen: Im Zentrum steht das Erzählen als sinnliche, kulturelle Praxis und als partizipatorischer, soziale Beziehungen stiftender Prozess. Das Buch liefert einen grundlegenden Beitrag zur Aufführungstheorie und zur interdisziplinären Erzählforschung.

Anne Pasternak

Princeton Architectural Press, 03.05.2007 – 285 Seiten

New York City is the undisputed center of the North American art world, and its public art is one of the most evident signs of its cultural wealth. For more than 30 years, Creative Time has been an avatar of public art in the city, working to engage art and the environment, artists and the public. Creative Time: The Bookshows how a single organization made it possible for thousands of artists to present awe-inspiring works that engage, taunt, seduce, enliven, and transform a city. Creative Time artworks have been seen in spaces both lofty and modest. Light projections have appeared on the Beaux-Arts entrance to the New York Public.
