Politics, poetics : Documenta X, the book by Catherine David( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book seeks to indicate a political context for the interpretation of artistic activities at the close of the twentieth century, through a montage of images and documents from the immediate post-war period to the present. The range of material treated here is not encyclopedic; it represents a polemical attempt to isolate specific strands of artistic production and political endeavor which can be taken as references in the contemporary debate over the evolution of our societies. Drawing from distinct yet interrelated territorial and linguistic domains, the book singles out complex cultural responses to the unifying processes of global modernity."--Jacket

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photography is in a phase of change in which an altered conception of the documentary factor is emerging. It is not so much a matter of the portrayal or representation of reality, but rather of an artistically well-grounded idea of the world. ... Thomas Weski ... [distinguishes] between the photgraphic images as pure documentation and photography as a form of testimony." Book jacket

Art and utopia : limited action by Jean-François Chevrier( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La publicación recoge el concepto y la estructura de la exposición, que presenta numerosas obras y revisa algunos momentos clave de los intercambios entre arte y poesía en el siglo XX, tomando como hilo conductor el papel de Mallarmé en la creación artística contemporánea: el siglo XX asiste a la aparente confrontación entre la voluntad de experimentación formal y la tradición que intenta hacer pedagogía para transformar la sociedad, a la dicotomía entre Marx y Mallarmé, entre política y poesía, confrontación superada por la posiblidad de hacer un arte político y poético al mismo tiempo. En palabras de Mallarmé, "la única utopía está en el lenguaje, en la acción restringida del acto poético"
