This collection surveys the choreographic turn in the artistic imagination from the 1950s onwards, and in doing so outlines the philosophies of movement instrumental to the development of experimental dance. By introducing and discussing the concepts of embodiment and corporeality, choreopolitics, and the notion of dance in an expanded field, Dance establishes the aesthetics and politics of dance as a major impetus in contemporary culture. It offers testimonies and writings by influential visual artists whose work has taken inspiration from dance and choreography. Dance--because of its ephemerality, corporeality, precariousness, scoring, and performativity--is arguably the art form that most clearly engages the politics of aesthetics in contemporary culture. Dance's ephemerality suggests the possibility of an escape from the regimes of commodification and fetishization in the arts.

Work's meaning both within art and in its wider economic and social context: the complexities of being an art worker in the new economy. Warhol's Factory of the 1960s, Minimalism's assembly-line aesthetics, conceptual and feminist concern with workers' conditions in the 1970s -- these are among the antecedents of a renewed focus on the work of art: labor as artistic activity, as artistic method and as object of artistic engagement. In 2002, the "Work Ethic" exhibition curated by Helen Molesworth at the Baltimore Museum of Art took its cue from recent art to spotlight this earlier era of artistic practice in which activity became as valid as, and often dispensed with, object-production. Revealed through this prism was "dematerialized" art's close and critical relation to the emergent information age's criteria of management, production and skill. By 2015, the Venice Biennale reflected artists' wider concern with global economic and social crises, centered on exploitative and precarious worlds of employment. Yet while art increasingly engages with human travail, work's significance in itself is seldom addressed by critics. This anthology explicitly investigates work in relation to contemporary art, surveying artistic strategies that grapple with the complexities of being an art worker in the new economy, a postproducer, a collaborator, a fabricator, a striker, an ethical campaigner, or would-be transformer of labor from oppression to liberation. Artists surveyed include Pawel Althamer, Francis Al�s, Marwa Arsanios, Chto Delat, Alice Creischer, Ana de la Cueva, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Jeremy Deller, Maria Eichhorn, Harun Farocki, Claire Fontaine, Andrea Fraser, Liam Gillick, Melanie Gilligan, Gulf Labour Coalition, Tehching Hsieh, Lamia Joreige, Lee Lozano, Goshka Macuga, Teresa Margolles, Adrian Melis, Annette Messager, Gustav Metzger, Jean-Luc Moul�ne, Ahmet �g�t, Philip Rizk, Martha Rosler, Tino Sehgal, Santiago Sierra, Tamas St. Auby, Mladen Stilinovic, W.A.G.E., Artur Zmijewski Writers include Claire Bishop, Luc Boltanski, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Sabeth Buchmann, �ve Chiapello, Kodwo Eshun, Silvia Federici, Isabelle Graw, Maurizio Lazzarato, Achille Mbembe, Antonio Negri, Jacques Ranci�re, Gerald Raunig, Dietmar R�bel, Paolo Virno, Joseph Vogl

These days people love art especially contemporary art, which has become a constantly growing cultural factor. Fascinated by the artists' creative milieu, the public strives to share in its atmosphere of being something special. In a time of upheaval, this publication offers a look behind the scenes of the contemporary art world in which the triangle of artist, artwork, and viewer has long since been expanded many times over. The relationships between artist, collector, gallerist, curator, and critic frequently inform the works' very contents, and these aspects are increasingly represented in the works themselves. Many artists keep an eye on what happens in the art world and reflect the more and more lavish trade: from the creative process and the mounting of an exhibition to the rituals of the scene.

David Lynch äußert sich selten zu seinen Filmen und seinem künstlerischen Schaffen. In 'Den großen Fisch fangen' gibt er Einblicke in seine Arbeitsweise, erzählt von seinem Weg in die Kunst, prägenden Begegnungen und Erfahrungen und seiner Perspektive auf Kino, Filme und das Filmen. In kleinen Kapiteln beleuchtet er nicht nur verschiedenste Aspekte seiner Kunst und gibt zahlreiche Tipps an junge Filmemacher; er berichtet vor allem auch von der enormen Bedeutung, die seine jahrzehntelange tägliche Praxis in Transzendentaler Meditation für sein kreatives Schaffen hat. So richtet sich sein Buch nicht nur an eingefleischte Lynch-Fans, die mehr über die surrealen Welten des Meisterregisseurs erfahren wollen, sondern an all jene, die selbst auf der Suche nach mehr Kreativität und persönlichem Wohlbefinden mit sich und der Welt sind.
