Francis Alys: A Story of Deception (PB)
Description
Francis Alÿs (b. 1959, Antwerp, Belgium) uses poetic and allegorical methods to address political and social realities, such as national borders, localism and globalism, areas of conflict and community, and the benefits and detriments of progress. As one of the foremost artists of his generation, Alÿs has produced a complex and diverse body of work that includes video, painting, performance, drawing, and photography.
With an introductory essay by Mark Godfrey, Curator at Tate Modern, and a dictionary of quotes from Alÿs's writings and interviews compiled by Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1 and MoMA's Chief Curator at Large, this book features over sixty key works by Alÿs with descriptions and comments by the artist, as well as responses to his art from a range of international contributors including Eduardo Abaroa, Francesco Careri, T. J. Demos, Carla Faesler, Boris Groys, Miwon Kwon, Tom McDonough, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Laymert Garcia dos Santos, Lorna Scott Fox, and Eyal Weizman.
