How to Frame

On the Threshold of Performing and Visual Arts

Edited by Barbara Gronau, Matthias von Hartz and Carolin Hochleichter

Distributed for Sternberg Press




From 2012 to 2016, Foreign Affairs, the international performing arts festival of Berliner Festspiele, and the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) have been investigating the relations between the performing and visual arts. The festival has continuously produced projects with international artists that experiment with various institutional frameworks. This book is both a question and a manual, collecting ideas, knowledge and experiences that stem from the theory and practices developed over the past few years.

Copublished with Berliner Festspiele / Foreign Affairs in cooperation with Universität der Künste Berlin
