This first monograph on Bulgarian artist Plamen Dejanoff, who became known internationally for his 1990s collaborations with Swetlana Heger, includes a range of work–including his most recent construction-project-as-artwork: a complex of buildings including a museum, bookshop and studio in his hometown–produced together with a host of collaborating architects, designers and artists.

For Parkett No. 69, the featured collaboration artists are Belgian conceptual artist Francis Alÿs, German sculptor and mixed-media artist Isa Genzken, and the Indian-born, London-based sculptor Anish Kapoor. Authors include Saul Anton, Robert Storr, and Kitty Scott on Als; Pamela Lee and Jörg Heiser on Genzken, and an interview with Genzken by Michael Krajewski; and Norman Bryson, Marina Warner and Kurt Forster on Kapoor. Other features include Philip Kaiser on Amelie von Wulffen, Stuart Comer on Swetlana Heger and a special Parkett Inquiry on consensus in contemporary art world titled “The Economy of Attention.” The twentieth-anniversary issue, Parkett No. 70, will be published in summer 2004, with special collaborations and projects to be announced.
