Neke Carson - Works On Art And Rectal Realism
This is a book about one artist and how he addressed the gallery system in the 70's. He basically took the art he found in galleries and turned the paintings and sculptures into "Readymades". He didn't go to the hardware store to look for "found objects". He went to Leo Castelli's and found art. He would sell the art by putting red dots near the work or he would hit the art with a tuning fork to get the sound off art and much more. The end result of all this was the birth of a new way of seeing and a brand new way of painting.
