Do it, Volume 1
The Do Itbook contains artworks by more than 100 international artists in the form of do-it-yourself text instructions to be completed by the reader. Based on the traveling exhibition and e-flux online project curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, the book also includes a selection of essays and interviews, and offers comprehensive material on the groundbreaking show. Do Itbegan in 1993 with a discussion among friends Christian Boltanski, Bertrand Lavier and Hans Ulrich Obrist. All three had been interested in various forms of instructional procedures since the early 1970s, and that evening they spoke of the instructions contained within their own work. From this discussion arose the idea of an exhibition of do-it-yourself descriptions and procedural instructions. Since 1993, the exhibition has taken place in venues in more than 40 cities worldwide, including Palo Alto, Pittsburg, Calgary, Atlanta, Toronto, Andover, Glasgow, Reykjavik, Helsinki, Bangkok, Copenhagen, Edmonton, Paris, Mexico City and Costa Rica. Meaning has been multiplied as various interpretations of the text accumulated while the exhibition traveled from venue to venue. The online component, which invites participants to upload images of the results of their chosen project, is less concerned with copies, images or reproductions of artworks than with human interpretation.

This is a booklet of instructions by various artists (apparently of some notariety) on how to assemble specific pieces of art. The idea is that these instructions are something like musical compositions which, when followed, produce the desired aesthetic result. From what I can tell the book was written to accompany a specific exhibition (or set of exhibitions) dealing with this theme. At the time I first tried to read this I couldn't much get into it. I was much more interested in trying to produce my own art than following the instructions of other artists. But the idea of a piece of art existing only on paper and in people's minds has some appeal to me and is something I've found of interest from time to time since reading the book. - Peter K.
