"Alfred Jensen's art is significant, not because it is a representative signpost of art historical progression, but because it is almost uncategorizable in its uniqueness." Preface by Michael Govan, with essays by Lynne Cooke, David Anfam, Michael Newman, and Maria Reidelbach.
Published to accompany the first large-scale retrospective of Alighiero Boetti's work outside Italy in over a decade, this volume presents the most comprehensive overview of the artist's career to date. Covering all periods of Boetti's broad oeuvre--including early sculptural experiments associated with the Arte Povera movement, conceptual and ephemeral projects of the 1970s and the monumental embroideries and tapestries he fabricated up to his death--this richly illustrated catalogue is structured as a typology of the artist's body of work rather than a chronological progression.
This book offers a sophisticated portrait through previously unpublished works, treasures from private collections shown here for the first time; these works are a record of the artistic vision of a man who , first anf foremost, was a philosopher of depth, subtelty and irony.
Alighiero e Boetti (1940-1994) has emerged as one of the most significant figures of postwar European art whose practice is having an unfolding impact on younger artists. His powerful influence can be attributed to the material diversity of his work, its conceptual ingenuity, and his political sensibility.
'Alighiero e Boetti. Beyond Books' covers the intense activity of printer Alighiero Boetti, from his artists' books to posters and exhibition invitations, taking a look along the way at his long association with the newspaper 'Il Manifesto'.

Consumerism, glamour, disasters and mass media - Andy Warhol's art is a mirror image of America. Son of Slovakian immigrants, he rose, with his Campbell's Soup Cans and silk-screen-duplicated Marilyn, to become a Pop Art icon. His blond wig and eccentric lifestyle, and the wild goings-on at his legendary Factory became his trademarks.
