In 2016, the Arts Foundation NRW published the first volume of « Performative Strategies », entitled Acting Cities. Interviewing artists whose work is relevant to North Rhine Westplalia, Frank Raddtz unfolded a wealth of aesthetic and stylistic possibilities of contemporary theatre in the public, urban space.
The second volume of « Performative Strategies », Crossing Lines- Contac Areas of Art, is dedicated to the topic: areas and reflections of contemporary performative art. It mainly deals with the multifaceted interconnections of performance, dance, music, and visual art: the field of trans-disciplinary and trans-media forms that has gained in relevance over the last ten years, systematically carrying forward the avant-garde movements of the 20th centry.
