About the project
Lineament is a yearly publication that thematizes evolution of modern into contemporary dance. Format is so called concertina book, which enables freedom in choosing the way of reading; it can be read as a book, or it could be long-drawn and could act as a timeline, which emphasizes the temporal conception of the theme.
Layout is organised by the principle of improvisation – typical for modern dance – in which text and pictures freely “dance” inside the frame that is determined by navigation. Base of the book represents general information of the certain time period in dance, and little booklets are dedicated to the most significant artist of that era.
What makes navigation are fundamental characteristics of modern & contemporary dance, such as improvisation. They are presented at the beginning of the publication, and they appear next to the paragraph they refer to and condition the position of little booklets.
