In her essay "Writing Turned Image: An Alphabet of Pensive Language," Sabine Folie writes, "An idea...explored in St phane Mallarm 's Un coup de d s( A roll of the dice) of 1897 has in the twentieth century become an integral part of the poetological and, more generally, the avant-gardist vocabulary: the idea of unmasking language as a convention whose purpose it is to discipline the individual and to subject it to a regulated system of capitalist exploitation as well as to guarantee orientation in the world... Writing was released from the textual ensemble of the book and integrated into the flow of its media--as a disturbance, a deconstruction of meaning." The ideas of Symbolist poet and galvanizing nineteenth-century intellectual St phane Mallarm are discussed in this text-heavy volume in relation to works by Robert Barry, Lothar Baumgarten, Marcel Broodthaers, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha and Rodney Graham, among others. Scholarly essays by Sabine Folie, Anna Sigridur Arnar, Jacques Ranci re, Gabriele Mackert and Michael Newman accompany a generous selection of images by each of the artists.
