Andrea Zittel: Critical Space

Front Cover
Contemporary Art Museum, 2005 - Designers - 245 pages
This first comprehensive publication on the influential contemporary artist focuses on the experimental nature of Andrea Zittel's signature objects, inhabitable sculptures, and other projects. In her work as an artist, Zittel investigates domestic and urban life in Western societies. Exploring the various aspects of living, the artist designs her own household settings to serve as a test case for her experimental living structures. Her work has provoked debates about the changed meaning of domestic and collective space and the possibilities for new adaptations to urban conditions today. Richly illustrated, Andrea Zittel: Critical Space includes nearly two hundred reproductions of Zittel's works of art, many of which are published here for the first time. The book includes over one hundred sculptures and drawings, documentation of early work, and recent site-specific work in the Mojave Desert of California. With essays that touch upon urbanism, architecture, design, and consumer culture, this catalog offers an extensive analysis of Zittel's contribution to contemporary trends in art and architecture.
