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.

On its invention, the photograph was considered a purely mechanical, 'artless' object which could not belong among the fine arts. Despite its increasing use by the century's most significant artists, only since the late 1960s have art museums gradually begun to exhibit and acquire the photograph as an artwork. Today, though it took the whole of the last century for it to acquire its status, photography is art's pre-eminent medium.
"When this beautiful catalog was first proposed, I rashly promised to write a dedicatory poem for it. But when I saw the first proof pages, it dawned on me that all the works which Elsbeth and Ruedi had made possible for me to create are in themselves an ongoing poem which I could never surpass." So writes Carl Andre of his work in Glarus, a Swiss mountain town.
A giant spoon with an enormous red cherry snaking out of the earth, a humongous badminton birdie, an oversized piece of cake, squishy scupltures--these are some of the works for which Claes Oldenburg, the artist who helped redefine sculpture in the 1960s, is best known. However, because they have been less documented, Oldenburg's happenings and performances have not been fully integrated into the critical discourse surrounding his work.
