The Janus Aspect Summary


The Janus Aspect: Artists in the Twenty-First Century by John Tusa

Following the success of his On Creativity, John Tusa's new book draws on his acclaimed BBC Radio 3 series of interviews with a range of internationally distinguished artists. In video, music, dance, theatre, architecture, painting and sculpture, these remarkable practitioners work in forms that challenge and break traditional limits, crossing the boundaries between the arts to create new ways of expression and new kinds of meaning in a world transformed by multimedia. An invaluable insider's guide to their work and lives, Crossovers includes eight pages of illustrations and a substantial introductory essay by Tusa himself. Interviewees: Bill Viola (video), Michal Rovner (video and prints), Bernardo Bertolucci (film director), Atom Egoyan (film and stage director), Heiner Goebbels (director/composer), Simon McBurney (director/creator), Gilbert and George (artist), Merce Cunningham (choreographer), William Forsythe (choreographer), Anish Kapoor (sculptor), Richard Serra (sculptor), Renzo Piano (architect), Rachel Whiteread (sculptor) and Michael Craig-Martin (artist).
