Green, Malcolm (Ed.)

Regular price €59,00

“This anthology of photo-documentation and writings – which includes manifestos, theoretical texts, action scores, even police and psychiatric reports – has been assembled in collaboration with the three surviving artists. It provides the first comprehensive survey of their work, and for the first time illuminates their differing intentions. These texts employ humour and vitriol to elaborate a position in total opposition to contemporary social, political and aesthetic mores. A lucid narrative emerges of a determined exploration of these conditioning factors, by means of an art that used life as its material”, edited and translated by M.Green in collaboration with the artists, soft cover, 23 x 1,5 x 21 cm, 257 pages, London 1999
