A free publication edited by Romana Schmalisch during her residency at Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers.
“The first issue analyses the conjunction of dance with Labour Movements of the 1930s (New Dance Group) as well as its use in the industry to enhance efficiency (Laban/Lawrence); it looks at the vague image that we have from various professions, researches the value of the performance of a work and its equivalence in the wage, and considers different forms of abstractions (notations and graphics) and training methods.”
“The second issue focuses on the question of education. In an interview, sociologist Anne Querrien discusses social norms and the school system. In her text, the London-based writer Marina Vishmidt revisits an earlier essay which considered the relationship between contemporary dance and the de-materialization of labour. What changes about this relationship as all employment becomes more and more of a brutal hypothesis in our post-crisis conditions?”
“The last, third, issue deals with what is at stake when one learns a job, with relationships between teachers and students, with various methods of education, and with the way these systems reflect certain social norms.”

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)
