Anna Huber: A Conceptual Moment in Switzerland

Show Summary Details

Preview

Anna Huber's dances begin with a concept that becomes centered in and yet transcends the body. This existential approach to a visceral medium ends in structured dances. It defines the term conceptual art. As experimentally cutting-edge as her work is, it finds a sympathetic audience as well as full government support in Switzerland.

Keywords: Anna Huber; body; existentialism; conceptual art; experimental dance; audience; government support
