Send it to: Taking inspiration from the first director of the Museum of Modern Art, Alfred Barr, and his infamous 1935 Flowchart of Modernism and responses to his gesture--such as this one, this one, and this one--The Bureau is collecting Flowcharts of Contemporary Dance & Choreography. What might a flowchart for contemporary dance look like? Where and when does your flowchart for contemporary dance start? Where does it end? What are your ideologies and how do you name them? What are your histories and how do you write them--especially those that have not been formally written?
