Suggesting another history of Minimal Art, this publication examines intersecting perspectives on visual art and dance of the nineteen-sixties and nineteen-seventies in New York. Looking back at the history of art, we can only acknowledge today the radically trail-blazing paths taken by the pioneering figures of American Postmodern Dance-most notably Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, Simone Forti, Steve Paxton, and Yvonne Rainer. A collective history is attempted here, gathering these concise and direct movements that revolutionized visual and performing arts. They nourished the dialogue between the object and the space-time dimension occupied by the viewer, as experienced in the works of Robert Morris, Carl Andre, Donald Judd, and many others. A new generation of authors tackles this major chapter of the history of abstraction with a transmedia approach. Source texts by the artists and a scientific chronology are included.
