Esther Shalev - Gerz: The Contemporary Art Of Trusting Uncertainties And Unfolding Dialogues
|Author||Jason Bowman, Ed.|
|Publisher||Art And Theory Publishing|
Esther Shalev-Gerz produces work that simultaneously records, critiques and contributes to the understandings of societal roles and value of artistic practice through an ethical exploration into the transitional qualities of time and space, individual and collective memory, and the narration of histories. The first illustrated anthology to be published on her work, this book aims to stimulate debate on notions of trust and dialogue and their interrelations as seen through the lens of her oeuvre. It combines images of her photographs and videos alongside critical contributions by Stefanie Baumann, Lisa Le Feuvre, Jacques Ranciére, Annika Wik, James E. Young, Jacqueline Rose, Georges Didi-Huberman and others.
