For more than three years, Ai Weiwei turned out a steady stream of scathing social commentary, criticism of government policy, thoughts on art and architecture, and autobiographical writings. He wrote about the Sichuan earthquake (and posted a list of the schoolchildren who died because of the government’s “tofu-dregs engineering”), reminisced about Andy Warhol and the East Village art scene, described the irony of being investigated for “fraud” by the Ministry of Public Security, made a modest proposal for tax collection. ...

Original interviews with the artist. “I don’t have to know how to do a baby’s hands or a bleeding guy nailed to a piece of wood. I don’t need to know about any of this stuff. I can do mirror cubes. And that’s it. What a great idea…all I have to do is make sure they are interesting.” There is a democratising impulse in Robert Morris’ mirrored cubes. Liam Gillick’s work, however, is not a mirror of anything, but an attempt to look around the mirror. The key to this is the quality of interest and this often has to do ...

What do Mike Kelley and his cronies and sometime collaborators Jim Shaw, Paul McCarthy and Tony Oursler talk about when they talk about art? You’ll have to crack this book to find out, but expect a heady mix of pop culture, sex, violence, politics and, as always, a strong dose of humor. This volume brings together for the first time Kelley’s major interviews with those artists and others over the past 18 years. Kelley is naturally a provocative commentator on his own work and the work of others, but he’s also an informed and serious student of his interviewees’ oeuvres ...

‘Joseph Beuys was one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. He was one of the first German artists to engage with his country’s turbulent and destructive recent history. His art embraced processes of political renewal within society, the search for an appropriate spiritual approach in our times, and a belief in the creative potential in each individual.’ – Sean Rainbird, Senior Curator, Tate Collection ‘Twenty years after his death, Beuys is still the most inspirational artist of modern times. No other figure has so moved people to find their own creativity and to innovative solutions to the ...
