Edited by Museum Folkwang

A transcultural history of more than 120 years of art and dance.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Global Groove outlines how encounters between Western and Eastern societies gave rise to new expressive forms in art, dance, performance, and design, and what influence this has had on the history of Modernism. It assembles a vivid chronicle of artistic cross-cultural contact, from early performances of Asian dancers at colonial exhibitions in Europe and pioneers of modern dance from the beginning of Japanese Butoh to contemporary performances.

By means of over 270 photographs, paintings, sculptures, films, and performances compiled by international experts, this gorgeous volume illustrates how new forms of expression in dance and art arise through transcultural encounters. Global Groove demonstrates how the effects of dance go beyond its aesthetic value, extending into the societal, cultural, and political development of modern societies.
