An insightful look at work by a pioneer of video and computer art, who explores the relationships between the body, movement, dance, visual, and audiovisual art.
Since the early 1970s, the Brazilian artist, dancer, and choreographer Analívia Cordeiro has explored the relationships between the body, movement, and visual and audiovisual art, and her work has influenced media artists throughout South America. This publication presents a comprehensive view of her body of work up to the present. In addition to an introductory text by the editor, the book contains an interview with Cordeiro as well as texts of hers, in addition to essays by various contributors. Featuring three hundred color plates, historical documents, photographs, a detailed biography, and a bibliography, Analívia Cordeiro is an essential resource for readers already familiar with the artist, and a thorough introduction for newcomers to her work, as well as people interested in dance and performance art.
