CoverHans-Thies Lehmann

Rout­ledge, 27.09.2006 — 224 Seit­en

New­ly adapt­ed for the Anglo­phone read­er, this is an excel­lent trans­la­tion of Hans-Thies Lehmann’s ground­break­ing study of the new the­atre forms that have devel­oped since the late 1960s, which has become a key ref­er­ence point in inter­na­tion­al dis­cus­sions of con­tem­po­rary theatre.

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.

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.

Creative Time: The Book - 33 Years of Public Art in New York

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.

Whit­ney Muse­um of Amer­i­can Art, 2008 — 192 Seit­en

For twen­ty-five years the Whit­ney Muse­um of Amer­i­can Art at Altria has occu­pied an entire­ly unique niche with­in the New York art world. Oper­at­ing under the aegis of the Whit­ney Muse­um of Amer­i­can Art and fund­ed by Altria Group, Inc., Whit­ney at Altria has enjoyed great pro­gram­mat­ic free­dom and pre­sent­ed excit­ing new work, always free to the pub­lic. Its com­mis­sioned exhi­bi­tions, annu­al per­for­mance series (dance, the­ater, and music), and inno­v­a­tive pub­lic pro­gram­ming have sup­port­ed cut­ting-edge projects by numer­ous con­tem­po­rary artists and per­form­ers, no small num­ber of whom have gone on to become major art world.

Worlds in Words: Storytelling in Contemporary Theatre and Playwriting


Mateusz Borows­ki, Mał­gorza­ta Sugiera

Cam­bridge Schol­ars Pub­lish­ing, 16.04.2010 — 275 Seit­en

The col­lec­tion of essays Worlds in Words: Sto­ry­telling in Con­tem­po­rary The­atre takes up the cur­rent­ly wide­ly debat­ed issue of the revival of var­i­ous tech­niques of sto­ry­telling in con­tem­po­rary the­atre prac­tice and play­writ­ing. This top­ic is set in a larg­er con­text of the cri­sis of tra­di­tion­al the­atri­cal and dra­mat­ic rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the 20th cen­tu­ry and sets the dis­cus­sion of new sto­ry­telling tech­niques with­in the frame­work of cul­tur­al and post-colo­nial stud­ies, as well as the recent the­o­ries of performativity.
