Editor’s Letter: 

Elizabeth Schambelan on Propaganda and Terror

“In November 2016, we didn’t know the exact contours of the nightmare that was about to drop through the ceiling.”
—Elizabeth Schambelan

Sanctuary: Judson’s Movements

This month, “Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done” opens at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In honor of the occasion, Artforum invited art historian Catherine Damman and writers Deborah Jowitt and Claudia La Rocco to consider the performances’ influence and legacies. In addition, witnesses and participants Deborah Hay, Barbara Moore, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Dorothea Rockburne, Carolee Schneemann, and La Monte Young reflect on the action and fill in the blanks regarding this historic series of events.

“The issue was never whether dance belongs in the museum or gallery, but rather what we do with dance—and how we treat dancers—once it’s there.”
—Catherine Damman

Fall Previews: We look ahead to 40 shows worldwide—The Most Dangerous Game at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tania Bruguera at the Tate Modern, London; Cecily Brown: Where, When, How Often and with Whom at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark; David Goldblatt at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney; and more.

Reveries of a Solitary Dancer: David Velasco on the art of Adrian Piper

“Thinking and dancing are synergistic in Piper’s world.”
—David Velasco

Phantom Limbs: Solveig Nelson on Simone Forti’s holograms

“Forti’s holograms call into question the increasingly widespread idea
that advances in technology entail a progression away from the body.” 
—Solveig Nelson

And: Projects by Awol Erizku and Women’s History Museum; Dan Nadel on the art of Ellen Berkenblit, Carroll Dunham, Sarah Peters, and Kyle Staver; Paige K. Bradley on Flannery Silva; Jason Moran on Cecil Taylor; and Damon Krukowski on Ryan H. Walsh’s Astral Weeks

Plus: Carlos Brillembourg on El Helicoide, Melissa Anderson on Germaine Dulac, Claire Bishop on the Shed, Charlie Fox on Julie Becker, David Frankel on Ranjani Shettar, and Marilyn Minter shares her Top Ten.
