RITUAL AND DISPLAY: READER
150 x220mm, 284 pages, black and white printing, perfect bound, softcover with die cut detail, 2022
Ritual and Display opens up the productive tension of the terms in its title through a multitude of perspectives including anthropological, artistic, art historical, poetic, performative studies and indigenous. Part One includes texts, archival materials and original translations on feminist rituals, prophecy and magic, while Part Two relates reflections on landscape and rituals of the everyday. All texts were read by If Can’t Dance’s reading group in Amsterdam as part of the artistic programme VII – Ritual and Display (2019–21). With a commissioned interview by Genevieve Hyacinthe in which the scholar shares her in-depth angle on the thematic.
