The Romanian artist Mircea Cantor often mines the territory of conceptual and performance art associated with Alan Kaprow, Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol. Cantor who is also a co-founder of Version, a journal devoted to the interface of culture, sociology, music, philosophy, and natural sciences, resists restricting his work to a singular style or medium. To date, his works have explored a wide range of topics and include photography, installation, sculpture, and short films.
This fully illustrated book features views of newly commissioned work together with source images and an essay by Curator Suzanne Cotter.
Published to accompany a major commission and exhibition with Mircea Cantor in 2008/09 organised by Modern Art Oxford, in collaboration with Arnolfini, Bristol and Camden Arts Centre, London.
The Museum of Incest is an ongoing project initiated by Simon Fujiwara in 2008. Subtitled “An erotic survey of civilization from ape to man and back again”, this architectural project is composed of a fictive institution that explores the erotic origins of man, while proposing incest as part of man’s ancestry. The publication is a guide to the museum, including a discussion of the fictive museum’s architecture, curatorial features, and the works presented in it. It is based on a performance-lecture realized by Fujiwara.
