This paper presents the dances of Gret Palucca in the photographs of Charlotte Rudolph, analyzing how these images were particularly apt at circulating across different print media, such as magazines, posters, advertisements as well as theoretical treatises associated to the Bauhaus. While addressing how dance is represented by photography, this paper will investigate the contradictions inherent in dance photography: documenting Palucca’s dance on the one hand, while bearing the personal and technical choices of Rudolph on the other. Their professional, collaborative relation represents an example of mutual cooperation to intentionally stage images that can navigate widely across media, while simultaneously encouraging Palucca’s association with modern art.
