Post-dance was a conference held at MDT in Stockholm, 14-16 October 2015, created by Danjel Andersson, André Lepecki and Gabriel Smeets.
“Postdance or Post-dance or POSTDANCE is an open source concept. We reversed a normal conference. Instead of saying what Postdance is, we in vited a wide range of thinkers to fill the concept with us. To let it be open, and a bit weird, and by doing that keeping it urgent. And now post-dance is a book.” (from the Introduction)

“This volume presents papers based on the presentations held at the conference Local Contexts / International Networks – Avant-Garde Magazines in Central-Europe (1910-1935) held at the Kassák Museum in September 2015. The Museum is the only Hungarian museum devoted entirely to the avant-garde and its documents. It launched a programme centred around the presentation of archives and private collections, contemporary reflections on the avant-garde, and a reconsideration of Kassák’s oeuvre.
The avant-garde journal was arguably the most important medium of communication for progressive literature and visual arts in the region during World War I and the interwar period. The conference brought together researchers of different disciplines and approaches to analyse the multifaceted nature of the avant-garde journal. It aimed to draw attention to the tensions between national/local and international/cosmopolitan and offer possible answers to the question: how did the different cultural and historical characteristics affect the local avant-gardes of Central Europe?” (from Introduction)
