Performa 09: Back to Futurism</a>.Written and edited by legendary performance art historian RoseLee Goldberg, Performa 09: Back to Futurism is the definitive document of the unforgettable Performa 2009 biennial. It is the third volume to draw content and inspiration from the world-renowned Performa biennials, and features creative documentation by the 150 artists who made Performa 09 so extraordinary--among them Guy Ben-Ner, Candice Breitz, Omer Fast, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Mike Kelley, Arto Lindsay, Wangechi Mutu, Christian Tomaszewski and Yeondoo Jung (all of whom presented special Performa Commissions) and Keren Cytter, Tacita Dean, Alicia Framis, Loris Greaud, William Kentridge and Joan Jonas (who brought US premieres to the biennial). Photographs of each artist's performance and texts contributed by curators and critics provide accounts of every show, as well as an understanding of the importance of each work within the artist's individual career and in relation to larger artistic trends. Taking place at over 80 of New York's most exciting art and cultural venues, Performa 09 was created as a collaboration between all of these moving parts, so a portrait of the city's remarkable history of cultural innovation also emerges from these pages. Performa 09: Back to Futurism is not only a gorgeous document of a remarkable biennial, but also an invaluable reference guide to the most significant artists of our time, for art historians and fans alike.

FROM THE BOOK
"When cinema was invented at the end of the nineteenth century, the sight of moving pictures on a wall seemed like a magic trick to its first audiences. Magicians at the time saw the camera as another tool for their illusions, a way to use the magic of film to enhance their own acts. Through the combined talents of magicians, machinists, and prop builders, some of the very first film "tricks" were created through techniques that form the foundation of movie special effects today. One of the major early cinema pioneers, former cabaret illusionist George Méliès, soon became famed as the first "cinemagician" because of the ingenious effects he originated. Yeondoo Jung's first-ever live performance, Cinemagician, took Méliès as inspiration for creating a whimsical dual reality, showing illusions on a screen while unveiling the techniques behind them on stage at the same time."

Featured excerpt is reproduced from the chapter, Cinemagician: Yeondoo Jung in Performa 09: Back to Futurism.
