Guy De Cointet - The Complete Plays
French-born artist Guy de Cointet is known for his text and sculptural works, which were often combined as props and stage sets in theatrical performance pieces. This compendium of his plays builds on publications from the last ten years, the result of collaborations between critics, researchers, and the Guy de Cointet Society. The position of his oeuvre today is vastly different in comparison to a decade ago, having emerged from obscurity, while a careful reading of the notebooks he kept throughout the 1970s until his death in 1983 has spurred new insights. Included is a wealth of archival material, such as photos of performances and rehearsals, invitation cards and press articles.
