Catalogue published on the occasion of the titled touring group exhibition which travelled to Paris, Mexico, and a number of venues in the United States between February 2000 and November 2001. The exhibition explores and examines the various entertainment structures, or the 'spectacularisations' that have infiltrated today's consumerist society. More than 50 contemporary artists, critics and theorists have contributed to the book.
Note that only topical chapter headings and artists of Asian descent are listed in below; the book also includes interview transcripts, exhibition afterword, and biographies of authors and artists.
