Schermafbeelding 2017-08-28 om 14.45.18

Joan Jonas was born in 1936 in New York. A pioneer of performance and video art, Jonas works in video, installation, sculpture, and drawing, often collaborating with musicians and dancers to realize improvisational works that are equally at home in the museum gallery and on the theatrical stage. Drawing on mythic stories from various cultures, Jonas invests texts from the past with the politics of the present.

Just a short biography which can be found everywhere on the internet, but a visual example of her work says more than a thousand words.

and the interview she has done with Art21

 

www.ftn-books.com has only one book available by Joan Jonas. It is the exhibition catalogue for her Stedelijk Museum exhibition in 1994.
