Think with your body
"I'm interested in what we know about things through our bodies," says Simone Forti (born 1935 in Florence, Italy, lives in Los Angeles, USA) about her work. Although she is considered a key figure in postmodern dance and minimal art, she prefers the term "movement artist". This publication is the first comprehensive presentation of the diverse work of this influential artist, choreographer, dancer and writer. This is presented in detail using numerous illustrations and texts by well-known art historians and artistic companions.
