Alighiero e Boetti by Mark Godfrey( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the main subjects of Alighiero e Boetti's art and position his work in relation to that of his European and American contemporaries. Boetti's work, though usually associated with the Italian Arte Povera group and Conceptual Art, does not quite fit into these contexts as he ceased making Arte Povera-type objects in 1969. His later choice of materials (embroidery, calligraphy, mosaic, kilims) separated his work and that of most artists of the 1970s and 1980s. Boetti had an idiosyncratic style of working, and he often collaborated with or commissioned others to execute his ideas, including his maps of the world, colorfully embroidered by women in Afghanistan and Pakistan
Alighiero e Boetti : Mappa by Luca Cerizza( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Italian and English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1971 Alighiero e Boetti commissioned Afghan embroiderers to create a map of the world, with each country bearing the colours and pattern of its flag. The commission grew into a beautifully crafted, large-scale series of maps produced over a period of twenty years in Kabul, Afghanistan and Peshawar, Pakistan. Each map tracked geopolitical changes throughout the world: the break-up of the Soviet Union, the unification of Germany, disputes over territories in the Middle East and regime changes in the Eurasian peninsula. In this new study, Italian curator Luca Cerizza looks at Boetti's Mappa in relation to world events and the history of map-making, as well as to the contemporary art movements of Minimalism, Conceptualism and Arte Povera."--Jacket

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to accompany the first large-scale retrospective of Alighiero Boetti's work outside Italy in over a decade, this volume presents the most comprehensive overview of the artist's career to date. Covering all periods of Boetti's broad oeuvre--including early sculptural experiments associated with the Arte Povera movement, conceptual and ephemeral projects of the 1970s and the monumental embroideries and tapestries he fabricated up to his death--this richly illustrated catalogue is structured as a typology of the artist's body of work rather than a chronological progression. Essays by curators from the Reina Sofia, Madrid, the Tate Modern, London and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, address recurrent themes in Boetti's work such as travel and geography, time, order and disorder and singularity and multitude, while contributions by scholars examine his early influences and his relationship to the cultural, political, and social spheres of Italy and Afghanistan in the 1970s and 1980s. This volume celebrates the material diversity, conceptual complexity and visual beauty of Boetti's work, proving that he is one of the most important and influential artists of his generation
