This book is jam packed with imagery taken entirely from other publications (books, catalogues, and magazines) on art and culture. Featuring dozens of contemporary artists’ works in various media–sometimes tightly cropped and showing only a detail of work, other times reproducing an entire page complete with captions and text–flipping through this book is like going on a whirl wind tour of current culture. With a nod to the appropriation strategies of Richard Prince, Sherrie Levine, and Louise Lawlor, this book has a kind of mirror effect—an intriguing example of how art represents itself to itself. Includes works of Andreas Gursky, Joseph Beuys, Damien Hirst, Juan Muñoz, Jeff Koons, Louis Bourgeois and many many others. — Printed Matter
