Joan Jonas

Moving Off the Land

The publication closely follows the process of the artist Joan Jonas in developing the multiformat project ‘Moving Off the Land’.

It is Jonas’s most recent body of work and encompasses three years of research into the significance of the ocean throughout history as a totemic, spiritual, and cultural reference.

This monograph provides an access to the complete script for the performance, along with annotations, accompanied by images of Jonas’s live performance as well as a complete chronology with visuals of the performance’s history.

Accompanies the exhibitions ‘Joan Jonas’, 9 Sep 2022 — 29 Jan 2023, Haus der Kunst, Munich; ‘Joan Jonas − Moving Off the Land II’, 25 Feb – 13 Sep 2020, Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, and, 24 Mar – 29 Sep 2019, Ocean Space, Venice.
