Autopia : cars and culture( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Autopia is not written by car buffs or technical enthusiasts - it consists of over 25 newly commissioned essays, as well as a number of reprinted key texts, by writers, critics, historians, artists and film-makers, all of whom share a critical concern with the consequences of a century of driving. In Autopia the car is treated not as a technological fetish object nor as an instrument of danger. Instead it is examined as a hugely important determinant of twentieth-century culture, neither wholly good nor an unmitigated disaster, but certainly endlessly fascinating."--Jacket

Scene of the crime by Ralph Rugoff( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scene of the Crime surveys thirty-five years of West Coast art, investigating aesthetic practices that address the art object as a kind of evidence, a clue to absent meanings and prior actions. From seminal works by Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman, Barry Le Va, and Vija Celmins to recent works by artists such as Paul McCarthy, James Luna, Anthony Hernandez, and Sharon Lockhart, this art declares that it is about more than meets the eye and raises the suspicion that a significant segment of contemporary art demands a forensic reading
