Throwing the Body into the Fight is the first English language publication dedicated to the choreographer and performance maker Raimund Hoghe (Germany). Curated and edited by Mary Kate Connolly, the publication operates as a collage, drawing together a variety of international voices to create a fragmented portrait of the artist.

Offering diverse perspectives on Hoghe’s work, contributions include thematic chapters by Laurent Goumarre, Martin Hargreaves, Dominic Johnson and Gerald Siegmund, alongside reflections from Franko B, Boris Charmatz, Finola Cronin, Philipp Gehmacher, Lois Keidan and Meryl Tankard.

Illustrated throughout with a rich collection of archival images by photographer Rosa Frank, Throwing the Body into the Fight also features a conversation with Raimund Hoghe which punctuates the book, offering insights into his creative process and that of his artistic collaborators, Luca Giacomo Schulte and Rosa Frank.
