Description
Edited by Christophe Cherix and Manuel J. Borja-Villel. Essays by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Jean-François Chevrier, Thierry de Duve, and Doris Krystof. Contributions by Cathleen Chaffee, Kim Conaty, Rafael García Horrillo, Christian Rattemeyer, Sam Sackeroff, Teresa Velázquez, and Francesca Wilmott.

Marcel Broodthaers was at the center of international artistic activity during the 1960s and 1970s. From his early objects made variously of mussel shells, eggshells, and books of his own poetry, to his most ambitious project, the Musée d'Art Moderne. Département des Aigles (Museum of modern art, Department of eagles), to the Décors made at the end of his life, Broodthaers often operated as both innovator and commentator. Setting a precedent for what we call installation art today, his work has profoundly influenced contemporary artists and cultural discourse at large.

Published to accompany Broodthaers's first retrospective in New York, this volume examines the artist's work across all mediums and includes new translations of many of his texts. Essays by the exhibition organizers, Christophe Cherix and Manuel J. Borja-Villel, and a host of major scholars provide historical and theoretical context for the artist's work.
