Title: out now: springerin Issue 2/09, Model Laboratory
Hefte für Gegenwartskunst
The current dance scene as a
testing ground and paradigm for interdisciplinary work? As a field
that reflects (self-)critically on itself and its methods, its
institutions and working conditions, as well as on its status in the
midst of other arts? This description certainly fits the Tanzquartier
Wien (TQW), founded in 2001, and springerin's spring edition takes a
look at the broad array of examples of dance, performance, discourse
and crossover practices that have developed in and around this
workshop. A small cross-section of the approaches that have developed
or crystallised here seeks to show how this sphere can be understood
as a role model for other artistic genres.
