Cambridge, MA, and Ljubljana MIT Press; Museum of Modern Art 1998 0262522640 / 9780262522649 First Edition Soft Cover Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
192 pp., illus.; 26 cm. 1000 copies printed. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Documents performance and body art in Eastern Europe. A major contribution. With essays by Joseph Backstein, Iara Boubnova, Jurij Krpan, Ileana Pintilie, Kristine Stiles, Branka Stipancic, Igor Zabel, and others. "The earliest 'body art' was created in Eastern Europe in the early 1960s. The term 'body art' includes a wide range of practices in which the artist's own body is the bearer of social, political, metaphorical, and philosophical content. This book includes essays on eighty artists from fourteen countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, the former GDR, Hungary, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Yugoslavia. Introductory essays by Zdenka Badovinac and Kristine Stiles discuss the tradition of an art form that emerged during socialism in cultural centers such as Prague, Belgrade, Ljubljana, Warsaw, and Zagreb. In these places public actions, particularly on the street, were often banned--and artists arrested--by the police. Therefore many of the actions documented here took place in private apartments, with the artists performing at great personal risk. The art survived not only despite the absence of any art market, but also despite its marginalization by political regimes. The artists turned their marginalization to an advantage, creating art out of the contingencies and necessities of survival. The art represented here reminds us of the psychological and intellectual freedoms that artistic expression affords under politically repressive conditions. This bilingual (Slovenian/English) book was originally published in conjunction with a major retrospective exhibition of body art held last year at the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana. Some of the artists, such as Marina Abramovic and Komar & Melamid, are well known internationally. Others, such as Alexander Brener, Sanja Ivekovic, Laibach, Paul Neagu, and Marko Peljhan, are known to special audiences in the East and West." - Publisher.

Botero: Abu Ghraib
Munich and New York Prestel Publishing 2006 3791337416 / 9783791337418 Soft Cover Very Good Collectible 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
108 pp., illus. (chiefly col.), bib. notes; 28 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Light shelfwear. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. These paintings by Colombian artist Fernando Botero are destined to go down in history alongside Goya's "Disasters of War," Picasso's "Guernica" and Leon Golub's mercenaries as some of the most powerful protest art in modern times. Representing scenes in Abu Ghraib Prison, they are a searing indictment of torture by American troops in Iraq, acts sanctioned at the highest levels of the U.S. government. George W. Bush and his minions (Cheney, Rice, Yoo, et al.) have yet to be held accountable for this gross violation of the Geneva Convention.

At a Distance: Precursors to Art and Activism on the Internet
Cambridge, MA MIT Press; Leonardo 2005 0262033283 / 9780262033282 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Networked collaborations of artists did not begin on the Internet. In this multidisciplinary look at the practice of art that takes place across a distance -- geographical, temporal, or emotional -- theorists and practitioners examine the ways that art, activism, and media fundamentally reconfigured each other in experimental networked projects of the 1970s and 1980s. By providing a context for this work -- showing that it was shaped by varying mixes of social relations, cultural strategies, and political and aesthetic concerns -- At a Distance effectively refutes the widely accepted idea that networked art is technologically determined. Doing so, it provides the historical grounding needed for a more complete understanding of today's practices of Internet art and activism and suggests the possibilities inherent in networked practice. At a Distance traces the history and theory of such experimental art projects as Mail Art, sound and radio art, telematic art, assemblings, and Fluxus. Although the projects differed, a conceptual questioning of the 'art object,' combined with a political undermining of dominant art institutional practices, animated most distance art. After a section that sets this work in historical and critical perspective, the book presents artists and others involved in this art 're-viewing' their work -- including experiments in 'mini-FM,' telerobotics, networked psychoanalysis, and interactive book construction. Finally, the book recasts the history of networks from the perspectives of politics, aesthetics, economics, and cross-cultural analysis. / Annmarie Chandler is Director of Emerging Field in New Media and Digital Culture at University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. Norie Neumark is Associate Professor of Media Arts and Production at University of Technology, Sydney, Australia." - Publisher.
