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.
Elena Filipovic is director of Kunsthalle Basel and former senior curator at WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, Belgium.
