'Walid Raad is one of the leading artists of his generation. His works explore historical, political, economic, and aesthetic facts and fictions related to the lebanese wars and to "Arab" art. This book surveys almost three decades of Raad's practice in a variety of mediums- including photography, video, and performance-while focusing on his groundbreaking project The Atlas Group (1989-2004) and his ongoing work Scratching on things I could disavow (2007-). Essays by Eva Respini and Finbarr Barry Flood place Raad's art in the international context of contemporary artmaking, and the book includes a special eighteen-page visual contribution by Raad himself. It is published to accompany the first comprehensive exhibition of his work in the United States.' - from the front flap

行為藝術

本頁的精選書目展示了藝術家、策展人和研究員實驗行為藝術的各種方式。對於某些人而言,行為藝術是一種違抗藝術商品化的方式;對主流敘事的實體干涉,或是逃避國家操控的演繹,而演出則成為在劇場、街頭、咖啡店或私人場地表達的抗議。對於另一些人而言,行為藝術是形式的實驗,是舞蹈、戲劇和電影的轉化、挪用或擴增。
