Mona Hatoum is an internationally renowned Lebanese-born, British-based Palestinian artist whose work is both deeply personal and quietly political. Inspired by her familial connections to war-torn Beirut as well as her sensitivity to contemporary racial and gender-based injustice, she transgresses the boundaries of performance, video, and sculpture while strategically reworking minimalism from a vantage point grounded in a feminist and cross-cultural sensibility.

Con il nome di Performance art si designa genericamente una vasta gamma di operazioni pratiche e concettuali che condividono l’aspirazione a superare il divario tra arte e vita. Nella performance, l’artista agisce con esiti immediati o differiti entro uno spazio non necessariamente deputato, spesso con la complicità di un pubblico che prende in qualche modo parte alla realizzazione dell’evento. Ciò ha ovviamente molte stimolanti implicazioni. Attraverso una serie di saggi, interviste e dichiarazioni di artisti e studiosi stranieri, questa antologia perlustra uno dei territori più complessi e affascinanti dell’odierno panorama artistico. Il volume raccoglie contributi di Philip Auslander, Christopher Bedford, Claire Bishop, Tania Bruguera, Graciela Carnevale, Franko B, Andrea Fraser, Gulliermo Gómez-Pena, Mona Hatoum, Adrian Heathfield, Amelia Jones, Miranda July, Allan Kaprow, Kubra Khademi, Mark McGowan, Bruce Nauman, Piotr Pavlenskij, Santiago Sierra, Koki Tanaka, Ulay, The Yes Men.

An Intriguing and Diverse Survey of Some of the Most ImportantArtists of the Century; New Affordable Format.As part of its critically-acclaimed “Themes and Movements” series, PhaidonPress is pleased to announce the new edition of THE ARTIST’S BODY, acompelling look at the artists’ use of self and body as object and subjectin their work, a movement that represents the state of contemporary art andmakes a wider comment on the human condition.Bound or beaten naked orpainted, still or spasmodic: the artist lives his or her art publicly inperformance or privately in video and photography.Amelia Jones’ surveyexamines the most significant works in the context of social history andTracey Warr’s selection of documents combines writings by artists, criticsand philosophers.Beginning with such key artists as Marcel Duchamp and Jackson Pollock, thisbook examines a selection of the most significant players who have usedtheir bodies to create their art – among them, in the 1960s CaroleeSchneemann, Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Yoko Ono; in the 1970s, Chris Burden, AnaMendieta, Vito Acconci, Marina Abramovic; up to the turn of the millennium,Matthew Barney, Mac Quinn, Tracey Emin and Mona Hatoum.In the survey, Amelia Jones, among the world experts in the field,discusses performance and body art against the background of socialhistory.She examines the breakdown of barriers between art and life,visual and sensual experience – how artists have expanded and renewed theage-old tradition of self-portraiture, moving art out of the gallery intounexpected spaces and media. Each image is accompanied by an extendedcaption. The works are organized thematically.* Painting Bodies, concerns work that shows the trace, stain or imprintof the artist’s body in response to the paint-on-canvas tradition. * Gesturing Bodies, examines artists who transform the body – its acts,its gesture – into art, gesture, behavior and situations are used in placeof art objects.* Ritualistic and Transgressive Bodies, looks at work which uses thebody to enact challenges to the social expectations of the body, often inrituals that perform a cathartic function.Mutilation and sacrifice areused to rupture personal and social homogeneity. * Body Boundaries, examines boundaries between the individual body andthe social environment and between the inside and outside of the bodyitself. * Performing Identity, looks at issues of representation and identity. * Absent Bodies, explores absence and the mortality of the body throughphotography, casting, imprints or remnants of the body.* In Extended and Prosthetic Bodies, the body is extended throughprosthetics or technology, to explore cyberspace and alternative states ofconsciousness.Parallel to the illustrated works of art, this section combines texts bycritics who shaped the movement, from Lucy R. Lippard to Thomas McEvilley. Alongside these writings by philosophers and thinkers such as GeorgeBataille and Gilles Deleuze who have contributed on a theoretical level tothe discussion around the body – a prevalent theme in twentieth-centurycultural theory.THE ARTIST’S BODY is a powerful and poignant look at an increasinglysignificant movement and art form.This book is an essential referencethat examines some of the most cutting edge and innovative artists of ourtime.This new affordable edition is perfect for students of theater andart as well as anyone with an interest in contemporary art.

The world without money is just unimaginable! Just as unimaginable as a world without purpose, ideals and dreams that go beyond the merely materialistic. Philosophers, artists, poets, statesmen and revolutionaries have always since time immemorial given serious thought to current and forward-looking concepts of value and their visual representation. The topic of money and value directly awakens many associations. Obviously, that is precisely what the golden pavilion built specifically for the exhibit in Biel does: hoarding and jewellery, precious and conflict, blame and atonement, myths and fairy-tales. Money and Value / The last taboo shows a wide panorama of different views of this as portrayed by various artists, including works by Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers, Marcel Duchamp, Tracey Emin, Mona Hatoum, Barbara Kruger, Piero Manzoni, Jean Baptiste Ngnetchopa, Wang Du, Yukinori Yanagi and many others. Reflections on the topic of money by poets and thinkers, from Aristotle all the way to Oscar Wilde round off the refreshing spectrum of this fascinating picture gallery.

Updated and Revised In a lively panorama of stimulating juxtapositions, sequences, and cross references, this new edition of Modern Contemporary provides a cornucopia of 590 works of key contemporary art (37 more than in the original edition). Thought-provoking page spreads juxtapose Jia Zhang Ke, Matthew Barney and Kara Walker; Gabriel Orozco, Chris Ofili, and Jeanne Dunning; Philippe Starck and Rineke Dijkstra; Jenny Holzer and Robert Gober; Mona Hatoum and Teiji Furuhashi; Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Juan Snchez, Raymond Pettibon, and Rosemarie Trockel; Gary Hill, General Idea and Lari Pittman; and David Wojnarowicz and Bruce Nauman, to name a few. Addressing the extensive holdings of contemporary art in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Modern Contemporary covers an international spectrum of art in a variety of mediums, all made in the last two decades of the 20th century and the first few years of the 21st. Organized chronologically and encompassing a prime selection of painting, sculpture, architecture, design, photography, drawings, prints, film, and video, this rich and varied array of art from 1980 until now offers a virtual compendium of the visual culture of our own time.

Wanderlust highlights artists as voyagers who leave their studios to make art. This book (and the exhibition it accompanies) is the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s need to roam and the work that emerges from this need. Wanderlust presents the work of under-recognized yet pioneering artists alongside their well-known counterparts, and represents works that vary in process, with some artists working as solitary figures implanting themselves physically on the landscape while others perform and create movements in a collaborative manner or in public.

Many of the earlier works use what were at the time nontraditional methods of art making. In Trail Markers (1969), for example, Nancy Holt spent time in the English countryside, where she documented the painted orange trail markers she found dotting the landscape. Vito Acconci explored his body’s “occupancy” of public space through the execution of preconceived actions or activities. In Following Piece (1969), Acconci followed one randomly chosen stranger through the streets of New York. A Line Made by Walking (1967), a black-and-white photograph of Richard Long’s imprint of a straight line in a field, was Long’s first walking art work, made on a journey to St Martin’s from his home in Bristol. Ana Mendieta’s influential Silueta Works in Mexico (1977) documents performances by the artist during her travel between Iowa and Mexico, in which she imprints her body on the landscape while addressing issues of displacement.

Each of these works recognizes the walk and the journey as much more than just a basic human act. Rebecca Solnit observes that walking replicates thinking, adding “the motions of the mind cannot be traced, but those of the feet can.” These works trace the motions of wandering artists’ focused minds.

Artists include Vito Acconci, Bas Jan Ader, Nevin Aladag, Francis Alÿs, Janine Antoni, John Baldessari, Kim Beck, Roberley Bell, Blue Republic, Sophie Calle, Rosemarie Castoro, Cardiff/Miller, Zoe Crosher, Fallen Fruit, Mona Hatoum, Nancy Holt, Kenneth Josephson, William Lamson, Richard Long, Marie Lorenz, Mary Mattingly, Anthony McCall, Ana Mendieta, Teresa Murak, Wangechi Mutu, Efrat Natan, Gabriel Orozco, Carmen Papalia, John Pfahl, Pope.L, Teri Rueb, Michael X. Ryan, Todd Shalom, Mary Ellen Strom, and Guido van der Werve.

A personal encounter with 50 of the world’s most significant contemporary artists, “pressPlay” draws together the full texts of the complete Phaidon interviews with living artists, 1995-2005, originally appearing in “Phaidon’s Contemporary Artists” series and “Robert Mangold” monograph. Highlights include veteran painter Vija Celmins and noted sculptor Robert Gober (who represented the US at the 2001 Venice Biennale) in an intimate discussion on their differing art practices; longtime friends and fellow travellers for decades, Benjamin Buchloh and Lawrence Weiner recall 35 years of work, in the definitive, career-long interview for this key Conceptual artist; the late Sir Ernst Gombrich honoured the “Contemporary Artists” series in a discussion with the UK’s pre-eminent sculptor Antony Gormley – who confesses that it was Gombrich’ “Story of Art” that first inspired him to become an artist; the taciturn, legendary Raymond Pettibon muses on the evolution of his work with noted hip novelist Dennis Cooper; musician artist Christian Marclay is interviewed by Sonic Youth rockstar Kim Gordon. From highly established artists Louise Bourgeois and Alex Katz, to midcareer masters Richard Prince, Mike Kelley, Fischli and Weiss, Jenny Holzer, and Raymond Pettibon, to the most exciting artists of the current generation, including Maurizio Cattelan, Olafur Eliasson and Pipilotti Rist, pressPlay is a highly readable, comprehensive look at contemporary art today.

Everything is made in Mexico, from decorative mirrors to silver jewelry to plastic dolls and ceramic dishware–and contemporary art. Made in Mexico examines recent art produced within and about Mexico. Historically, Mexico has always welcomed artists and writers from abroad as a way of enriching and diversifying the national character. This publication examines the phenomenon from a contemporary perspective for the first time. Made in Mexico highlights the current generation of cultural production within the context of prevailing global and conceptual art vocabularies. Speaking within a larger dialogue, Made in Mexico includes international artists whose work does not necessarily come out of a local experience, yet draws upon a distinctly Mexican vernacular–whether iconographic, architectural, or environmental. Three themes structure the book’s organization: “Local Identities” addresses how contemporary artists approach the essential characteristics of Mexican identity as projected through popular imagery, cultural iconography, and traditional art forms. “Mexican Modernisms” addresses the problems of modernist aesthetic ideologies within the context of Mexican architecture, design, and sculpture. And “Social Spaces” addresses artistic inspirations found within the environmental landscape. Included are works by artists such Francis Als, Daniel Buren, Andrea Fraser, Thomas Glassford, Erik G ngrich, Terrence Gower, Andreas Gursky, Mona Hatoum, Sharon Lockhart, Teresa Margolles, Yasumasa Morimura, Gabriel Orozco, Damin Ortega, Pedro Reyes, Sebastin Romo, Daniela Rossell, Santiago Sierra, Melanie Smith.

At this point in art time, new media work needs no longer be prefixed by “new.” With a firm place in institutional and private collections, with an ever-burgeoning range of practitioners, media art can safely be considered a part of the contemporary canon. And hence Fast Forward, a hefty, thorough reference guide, a virtual catalogue raisonné of the medium, from works found in the Goetz Collection. Over 180 film and video works by almost 80 international artists are represented, including: Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Doug Aitken, Chantal Akerman, Francis Alÿs, Emmanuelle Antille, Kutlug Ataman, Matthew Barney, Andrea Bowers, Janet Cardiff / George Bures Miller, Tacita Dean, Rineke Dijkstra, Stan Douglas, Tracey Emin, Peter Fischli / David Weiss, Douglas Gordon, Rodney Graham, Mona Hatoum, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Pierre Huyghe, Annika Larsson, Sharon Lockhart, Steve McQueen, Bjørn Melhus, Arnout Mik, Tracey Moffatt, Sarah Morris, Gabriel Orozco, Tony Oursler, Paul Pfeiffer, Jeroen de Rijke / Willem de Rooij, Pipilotti Rist, Santiago Sierra, Beat Streuli, Sam Taylor-Wood, Diana Thater, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rosemarie Trockel, and Gilian Wearing. The book is rounded off with introductory essays by Peter Weibel, Stephan Urbaschek, Mark Nash, and Sabine Himmelsbach, plus short essays on individual artists, and bibliographic and technical information.

The confrontation of two artistic generations contributes to a clarification of the changes wrought through and in the unceasing and ever global population migrations of 20th century. With work by Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, George Brecht, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Mona Hatoum, Mario Merz, Kim Sooja, and others.

Just Love Me–with its title taken directly from a late 90s neon sign by Tracey Emin–reveals how complex and differentiated female identity constructions have become today. Classically assigned roles have broken down. Radical feminist positions of the 70s and 80s no longer make sense. But if much has changed since the late 60s, when feminist artists began to make their most prominent moves, many social and structural problems remain. The strategies and perspectives of women artists today–and, presumably, of women today–are here considered through a selection of works by an important group of contemporary (mostly) women artists: Matthew Barney, Rineke Dijkstra, Tracey Emin, Mona Hatoum, Jonathan Horowitz, Sarah Jones, Mike Kelley, Karen Kilimnik, Sarah Lucas, Tracey Moffat, Cady Noland, Catherine Opie, Pipilotti Rist, Daniela Rossell, Cindy Sherman, Ann-Sofi Sidan, Sam Taylor-Wood, Gillian Wearing, Sue Williams, and Andrea Zittel.

In an age of ‘ethnic cleansing’ and forced migration, of contested borders and nations in turmoil, how have issues of place and identity, and of belonging and exclusion, been represented in visual culture? In Terra Infirma, Irit Rogoff examines geography’s truth claims and signifying practices, arguing that geography is a language in crisis, unable to represent the immense changes that have taken place in a post-colonial, post-communist, post-migratory world. She uses the work of international contemporary artists to explore how art in the twentieth century has confronted and challenged issues of identity and belonging.
Rogoff’s dazzling and richly-illustrated study takes in painting, installation art, film and video by a wide range of artists including Charlotte Salomon, Ana Mendieta, Joshua Neustein, Yehoshua Glotman, Mona Hatoum, Hans Haacke, Ashley Bickerton, Alfredo Jaar and Guillermo Gomez-Pena. Structuring her argument through themes of luggage, mapping, borders and bodies, Rogoff explores how artists have confronted twentieth century phenomena such as the horror of the Holocaust, the experience of diaspora at New York’s Ellis Island, and, in the present day, disputed and fraught boundaries in the Middle East, the two Germanies, the Balkan states and the US-Mexican border.

Hovering potentially between generosity and insult, seduction and trap, homage and defiance, the gift is a gesture with which relations are established and desires intertwined. In a world in which personal interactions are more and more sternly regulated, in which the symbolic value of things has been eroded, to reflect upon the work of art as a gift means to emphasize its ability to establish new types of relationships and encounters. Fifty artists, including Marina Abramovic, Vito Acconci, Louise Bourgeois, Clegg & Guttmann, Nan Goldin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Cai Guo-Qiang, Mona Hatoum, Alfredo Jaar, Joseph Kosuth, Piero Manzoni, Ana Mendieta, Yoko Ono and Gabriel Orozco, have fashioned gifts of object and self, gifts of one’s own body and of symbols, discreet and intrusive gifts, free handouts and exaggerated donations. In the spirit of giving, a bountiful range of philosophers, anthropologists, art critics and essayists offer their own musings on the idea of the gift.

Assembles the work of 11 international artists: Miroslaw Balka, Joseph Beuys, Louise Bourgeois, Hamad Butt, John Coplans, Pepe Espaliu, Robert Gober, Mona Hatoum, Susan Hiller, Jana Sterbak and Bill Viola. Works featured include video, sculpture, photography and site-specific installations.

This new publication traces the history of artists and their engagement with materials in late twentieth-century by closely analysing more than sixty key works from the D. Daskalopoulos Collection, Athens. Marcel Duchamp’s notorious Fountain 1917-64 serves as starting point for probing the relationship between art and reality. Act 1: The Corporeal pays particular attention to re-emergence of sculpture, the invented ready-made and installation in the work of artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Robert Gober, David Hammons and Sherrie Levine who examine issues of identity, sexuality, love, loss and desire. Act 2: Subversive Abstraction examines works by artists including Lynda Benglis, Mike Kelley and Dieter Roth which combine the formal language of abstraction with the use of abject materials. A single large-scale installation by Mona Hatoum referencing both the body and the minimalist grid forms the focus of Act 3: Current Disturbance, whereas Act 4: Material Intelligence looks at the role of image as material and the increasingly prevalent engagement with the everyday as artistic source material. Written and edited by Achim Borchardt-Hume, Chief Curator, Whitechapel Gallery, this book is essential reading for anybody interested in the influence of Duchamp’s revolutionary invention of the ready-made on late twentieth century art.

On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century explores the radical transformation of drawing that began during the last century as numerous artists critically re-examined the traditional concepts of the medium. In a revolutionary departure from the institutional definition of drawing and from reliance on paper as the fundamental support material, artists instead pushed the line into real space, expanding the mediums relationship to gesture and form and connecting it with painting, sculpture, photography, film and dance. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, On Line presents a discursive history of mark-making through nearly 250 works by 100 artists, including Aleksandr Rodchenko, Alexander Calder, Karel Malich, Eva Hesse, Anna Maria Maiolino, Richard Tuttle, Mona Hatoum and Monika Grzymala, among many others. Essays by the curators illuminate individual practices and examine broader themes, such as the exploration of the line by the avant-garde and the relationship between drawing and dance.

A reappraisal of the position and work of women artists from the Middle Ages to the present. It examines the way in which women’s work has been perceived in the history of Western art – often in direct reference to gender – and re-examines the works themselves. Revisions and new illustrations bring this volume up-to-date, with an additional chapter focusing on issues of identity, class, race and sexuality, many of which are addressed in the work of contemporary artists. Some of those discussed are Rachel Whiteread, Mona Hatoum, Hanna Wilke, Kiki Smith, Sophie Calle and Susan Hiller.
