A voluminous and beautifully illustrated hardcover publication, Acts of Voicing addresses the aesthetic, performative and political significance of the voice from the perspective of visual art, dance, performance and theory. Documenting a museum exhibition (Stuttgart & Seoul, 2012) of the same title in essays and photo- graphs of installations and performances, the elegant book explores the diegetic (elemental) and performative characteristics of the voice. There are voices that resist, voices that are disciplined and seek to discipline, voices that are heard and voices that go unheard. The book also examines the struggle to find one s voice and the act of getting voices to speak or be silent. With contributions by artists, curators, choreographers, authors and theorists including Daniel García Andújar, John Barker, Samuel Beckett, Natalie Boseul Shin, Hans D. Christ, Ines Doujak,
Iris Dressler, Tim Etchells, Ramón Grosfoguel, Anette Hoffmann, Ranjit Hoskote, Bojana Kunst, Manuel Pelmus, Christine Peters, David Riff and Imogen Stidworthy.
