Christian Boltanski by Lynn Gumpert( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in 4 languages and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian Boltanski, born in Paris in 1944 and one of France's best-known artists of the postwar generation, has developed a highly personal and often disconcerting oeuvre that challenges basic assumptions of what constitutes an artwork. Using media as diverse as newspaper clippings, used clothes, amateur snapshots, and flickering shadows, Boltanski forges an original universe in which he is frequently the central protagonist. One of Boltanski's favorite themes is his own life story, both actual and reinvented, which he evokes through startling collections of photographs and objects. In other pieces, he assembles seemingly mundane elements to address some of the most fundamental and disturbing contradictions of twentieth century life

Do it : the compendium by Hans Ulrich Obrist( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, 'Do It' began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between the artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier and Obrist himself, who was experimenting with how exhibition formats could be rendered more flexible and open-ended. The discussion led to the question of whether a show could take "scores" or written instructions by artists as a point of departure, which could be interpreted anew each time they were enacted. To test the idea, Obrist invited 13 artists to send instructions, which were then translated into nine different languages and circulated internationally as a book. Within two years, 'Do It' exhibitions were being created all over the world by realizing the artists' instructions. With every version of the exhibition new instructions were added, so that today more than 300 artists have contributed to the project

8 editions published in 2009 in English and French and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three distinct perspectives on Boltanski and his work: an analytical essay, a personal interview, and a complete retrospective of his work to date. Christian Boltanski--internationally acclaimed photographer, sculptor, painter, and installation artist--tackles the problems of death, memory, and loss in his art that draws heavily from his own life. Boltanski's art can be either dark and disturbing or playful, and sometimes both at once. This monograph examines every aspect of his art, from his unusual choice of materials--newspaper clippings, used clothes, photographs of photographs--to the spirits that haunt his work. One of his most successful exhibitions, "Lessons in Darkness" (1988), explored the personal pathos of the Holocaust in a shocking new way. The author worked closely with the artist to produce a strong, visual work that provides a clear picture of the creative development of a major artist working today. Fully illustrated, the book includes an introductory portfolio of key installations, first hand interviews with the artist, analyses of the significance of individual works, and a full chronology and bibliography."--Publisher's website
