Performances, videos and installations-the American artist Joan Jonas belongs among the most influential pioneers in these genres. Newly popular in the nineties, these art forms have formed the core of her work since the sixties. They Come to Us without A Word, designed by Miko McGinty in close collaboration with Joan Jonas, features an extensive series of images of the U.S. Pavilion installation at the Venice Biennale 2015 selected by Jonas. Jonas views these images not only as documents of an ambitious and important new work, but as an integral part of the presentation and experience of They Come to Us without A Word. The book also includes major new essays by Ann Reynolds and Marina Warner as well as an interview with Jonas conducted by Ingrid Schaffner.
