The Way of the Shovel
SIZE: 9.5” high x 6.5” wide
The catalogue features work by both established and young artists, and thoughtful entries by Dieter Roelstraete, exhibition organizer and Manilow Senior Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Roelstraete’s opening essay maps the critical terrain, while Ian Alden Russell explores the roots of archaeology and its manifestations in twentieth-century art, Bill Brown examines artistic practices that involve historical artifacts and archival material, Sophie Berrebi offers a critique of the “document” as seen in art after the 1960s, and Diedrich Diederichsen writes on the monumentalization of history in European art. Also included are statements from artists Moyra Davey, Rebecca Keller, Michael Rakowitz, Hito Steyerl, and Zin Taylor.
