William Forsythe is regarded as one of the top choreographers in the world. His artistic endeavours include dance installations, performances, films and the development of Internet-based dance projects. In the Kunsthalle im Lipsiusbau in Dresden, William Forsythe developed an installation in cooperation with the State Art Collections Dresden, which merged humans and machines and analysed spatial experiences and sequences of movement in the museum. The experimental project raised questions concerning museum exhibition practices, e.g. what roles do situation- and performance-based artworks play in a museum? How do choreographic objects influence the reception of conventional, static art displays in museums? A museum educational programme, workshops and lectures have accompanied the project.
