Documenta X – The Book

This book seeks to indicate a political context for the interpretation of artistic activities at the close of the twentieth century, through a montage of images and documents from the immediate post-war period to the present. The range of material treated here is not encyclopedic; it represents a polemical attempt to isolate specific strands of artistic production and political endeavor which can be taken as references in the contemporary debate over the evolution of our societies. Drawing from distinct yet interrelated territorial and linguistic domains, the book singles out complex cultural responses to the unifying processes of global modernity.

Text: Alvarez de Toledo Sandra, Ronneberger Klaus et al. cm 24×18; pp. 830; COL and BW; paperback. Publisher: Hatje Cantz Verlag, Ostfildern, 1997.
