Theatrum Mundi. A Fluid Lexicon will be presented by compiling editors Yulia Liderman and Valery Zolotukhin with GARAGE.txt and international publishing coordinator Katerina Suverina.
The book contains writings by philologists, philosophers, theatre and cultural scholars, and historians who have worked at the independent research lab Theatrum Mundi in Moscow, founded by Maria Neklyudova and Yulia Liderman in 2007. Theatrum Mundi explores various forms of contemporary theatre—from performance to contemporary dance—within the broader context of contemporary cultural theory. Articles included in this volume offer an introduction to the key concepts of contemporary performance arts theory (politics of spectatorship, theatricality, affect) as well as to their potential uses in cultural research.
