Between two deaths

Front Cover
Hatje Cantz, 2007 - Art - 327 pages
In the continual disappointment of failed political and social utopias--the 60 and the Eastern Bloc come to mind--artists, like everyone else, often find themselves indulging melancholic nostalgia. Between Two Deathscollects work addressing those feelings of uneasiness and loss, critical-artistic reflections on the political, social and cultural trends towards regret and retrospection. The assembled work observes conservative cultural debates, stagnation, regression, fear, insecurity, lethargy and nostalgia, not with censure but with interest--with curiosity about these feelings, and about the cynical pessimism or oft-prescribed optimism that follows. With contributions from Bas Jan Ader, Sebastian Diaz-Morales, Elin Hansdottir, Jutta Koether, Javier Tellez, and Mark Titchner, Harry Dodge, Sue de Beer, Stanya Kahn, Brock Enright and Barnaby Furnass.
