Jennifer Allora (born 1974) and Guillermo Calzadilla (born 1971) bring various media to bear upon a range of territories for which they evolve their own concrete political correlations. This publication documents the video works "A Man Screaming Is Not a Dancing Bear" (2008), on post-Katrina New Orleans, and "How To Appear Invisible" (2009) on the collapse of the Palast der Republik in Berlin.
The official anthem of the European Union, heard at numerous political, cultural and public sporting events, is the 'Ode to Joy' melody from the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, a true 'empty signifier' that can stand for anything," begins noted theorist Slavoj Zizek in his essay for this well-designed artist's book in which the American and Cuban Conceptual artist collaborators Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla present their reflections on this ubiquitous masterwork.
American Modern presents a fresh look at The Museum of Modern Art's holdings of American art made between 1915 and 1950, and considers the cultural preoccupations of a rapidly changing American society in the first half of the twentieth century.
This beautiful artist's book accompanies the Hayward Gallery travelling exhibition curated by artist and filmmaker Tacita Dean. Dean approached the task of selecting the works for this exhibition and this book as she does the making of her own work: with intuition as a guide, and a certain openness to coincidences and emerging themes. Texts by Tacita Dean.

When we think of Joan of Arc we might think of an androgynous, proto-feminist heroine, Dreyer's and Bresson's marvelous films, the terror of interrogation, a tormented body fraught with symbolism...But what happens when an artist with all of this in the back of her mind takes a fresh look at the historical sources? What images do they conjure up? For the exhibition "Du Mentir-Faux"--of which this book is a part--explores Belgian artist Ana Torfs' profound engagement with this historical, mythical, and literary figure.
