Choreographie – Medien – Gender

Softcover, 240 pages

PDF, 240 pages

Choreographie, Medien und Gender sind zentrale Begriffe kulturwissenschaftlicher Forschung, die in dieser Konstellation allerdings noch selten zusammen analysiert wurden. Der interdisziplinär ausgerichtete Band unternimmt es, dieses komplexe Gefüge im Kontext zeitgenössischer Tanz- und Performancekunst zu untersuchen und seine Bedeutung für das Verständnis von Wissensordnungen und Medialität herauszuarbeiten. Die AutorInnen fragen nach den Verschränkungen von Macht und medial-performativen Konstellationen in Tanz und Performance; sie zeigen auf, mit welchen Strategien Gender-Konfigurationen konstruiert und/oder subvertiert werden; sie fragen danach, was das »doing« bzw. »dancing gender« im Zusammenhang einer Produktionsästhetik bedeutet.
Der Band positioniert sich gegen jenen schleichenden »Backlash«, der Fragen von Gender und Macht zunehmend als ausgehandelt und nicht mehr thematisierungsbedürftig betrachtet.
