A collection of essays previously published in various international journals by art historian Marga van Mechelen, recognised for her expertise in the fields of conceptual, performance and video and installation art, this unusual book was handwritten by graphic designer Ilke Gers. This action in itself engages elements which play a significant role in such artworks: limitations of the human body, language and aspects of time. Includes work by more than 20 artists, from the performances of Marina Abramovic' to the typically American critique of Paul McCarthy, the texts are both erudite and critical, accompanied by numerous images, new introductions and a glossary of literature.
