Joan Jonas

A pioneer of performance art in the 1960s, Joan Jonas is one of the most highly regarded and influential artists working today. Her experimental installations have been internationally exhibited and make use of drawings, props, and masks, as well as projections, videos, and soundscapes.

Featuring her new exhibitions at the Tate Modern and Haus der Kunst, along with carefully selected interviews, this volume reveals Jonas’s artistic processes, influences, and inspirations—from German fairy tales to Japanese theater, and from the lectures of Aby Warburg to the artist’s collaborations with Babette Mangolte and Jason Moran. Taking stock of Jonas’s most recent and innovative work, this book offers valuable insight into the interdisciplinary approach and artistic processes of a major female artist.
