Date d'édition : 2016

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. The first survey in decades of the witty Belgian conceptualist Marcel Broodthaers extraordinary artistic output placed him at the center of international activity during the transformative decades of the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout his career, from early objects variously made of mussel shells, eggshells and books of his own poetry, to his most ambitious project, the MusEe d Art Moderne, DEpartement des Aigles (Museum of Modern Art, Department of Eagles), and the DEcors made at the end of his life, Broodthaers occupied a unique position, often operating as both innovator and commentator. Setting a precedent for what we call installation art today, his work has had a profound influence on a broad range of contemporary artists, and he remains vitally relevant to cultural discourse at large. Published to accompany Broodthaers first retrospective in New York, this volume examines the artist s work across all mediums. Essays by the exhibition organizers Christophe Cherix and Manuel Borja-Villel, along with a host of major scholars, including Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Jean FranCois Chevrier, Thierry de Duve and Doris Krystof, provide historical and theoretical context for the artist s work. The book also features new translations of many of Broodthaers texts. Marcel Broodthaers (1924-76) worked as a poet and critic until the age of 40, when he declared himself a visual artist. Over the next 12 years, he moved between Brussels, his birth city, and DUsseldorf and London. From 1968 to 1972 Broodthaers operated the MusEe d Art Moderne, DEpartement des Aigles, an itinerant museum devoted to the exploration of the role of the institution itself and the function of art in society.
