Thinking with the Body
“I am interested in what we know about things through our bodies,” says Simone Forti (born in 1935 in Florence, IT, lives in Los Angeles, US) of her work. Although she is considered a key figure in postmodern dance and Minimalism, she prefers the term “movement artist.” Simone Forti's work as an artist, choreographer, dancer, and writer is pioneering. This comprehensive publication offers the first extensive presentation of this influential artist’s diverse work and features numerous images and essays by prominent art historians and fellow artists.
