Scenography and Art History: Performance Design and Visual Culture

Editors: Astrid von Rosen and Viveka Kjellmer
Publisher I B Tauris: (2019)

Scenography and Art History reimagines scenography as a critical concept for art history, and is the first book to demonstrate the importance and usefulness of this concept for art historians and scholars in related fields. It provides a critical evaluation of the contemporary importance of scenography as a critical tool for art historians and scholars from related branches of study addressing phenomena such as live concerts, film, fashion and costume, dance activism and theatrical events.

With its nuanced and detailed case studies from a number of international contributors, this book is an innovative contribution to ongoing debates within art history and visual studies. It situates scenography in relation to broader issues, including gendered aspects of multisensory heritage and globalization in an increasingly digital world. It aims to extend the existing literature by demonstrating the importance of a reimagined scenography for comprehending historical and contemporary art histories and visual cultures more broadly.
