The first solo show by Joan Jonas (1936, New York, USA), one of the most important names in performance art in the 1960s.

Jonas is recognized for her multimedia works that typically involve video, performance, installation, sound, text and drawing. A pioneer of video art and performance art, her projects and experiments profoundly influenced the development of these artistic languages. Having won awards internationally and taken part in hundreds of solo and group shows, Jonas participated in Documenta V, VI, VII, VIII, XI and XIII (Kassel, Germany) and represented the United States at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015). She lives in New York (USA).
