Before the Future / Nothing Else / If It Is As If It

Seline Baumgartner - Before the Future / Nothing Else / If It Is As If It
A triptych video project on dance and the age of the body.
Seline Baumgartner's videos and sound installations examine the principles and grammar of individual and collective dynamics. This book gives an account of a video trilogy about dance for which the artist collaborated with professional dancers (aged from 40 to 70) to explore the gesture of aging bodies, thus interrogating the cult of eternal youth in our present society.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition “Seline Baumgartner – Nothing Else” at the Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris, from April to May 2015.
Born 1980 in Zurich, Seline Baumgartner lives and works in New York.
