The First European Retrospective of a Trail-Blazing Choreographer and Film Maker

When Yvonne Rainer stepped onto the dance stage in 1960, she radically changed the genre. Her minimalist choreographies dispensed with narrative and overstatement. Instead they used movements and poses from everyday life, combined with texts, films and sound recordings. Already her dance adopted the means of film montage. So it was only logical that in the mid-seventies, Rainer moved on to film, where she once again redefined the form.

This first European retrospective(in collaboration with Kunsthaus Bregenz) traces out Rainer's path, which has influenced several generations of artists. Previously unshown photos, notebooks and other material will be augmented by dance performances and a film retrospective.
