Born in New York in 1936, Joan Jonas has been a towering figure in postwar Conceptual and experimental Performance art since the 1960s, when she began her pioneering exploration of gender and identity through a combination of myth, choreography and new media. In 2007, she was a visiting professor at the world-famous Ratti Foundation in Como, Italy. While there, she turned to a text by art historian Aby Warburg (whose writings on Hopi imagery and ritual inspired Jonas' 2005 performance "The Shape, the Scent, the Feel of Things") to create "The Hand Reverts to Its Own Movement," a solo performance centered on the act of drawing. This substantial new monograph spans 40 years of the artist's groundbreaking output and introduces her new performance on the occasion of its world premiere in Como.
