In today’s art world there is a growing sense of ethics in relation to social, political and economic challenges, entailing a critical rethinking of production and distribution mechanisms. This book shows how the artistic perspective might generate new situations based on the potentials and limitations of the body. Featuring eleven exemplary North American practitioners, part one deals with eco-artistic practices and how these can lead to a greater sensibility towards our environment, while part two uses dance to explore the renewed concern for caring for the body.


With contributions by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Jeroen Peeters, Sara Wookey, Mala Kline and others.
