Destruction of the father reconstruction of the father : writings and interviews, 1923-1997 by Louise Bourgeois ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and German and held by 685 libraries worldwide
Since the age of twelve, the internationally renowned sculptor Louise Bourgeois has been writing - writing and drawing. First a diary precisely recounting the everyday events of her family life, then notes and reflections. Destruction of the Father - the title comes from the name of a sculpture she made following the death of her husband in 1973 - contains both formal texts and what the artist calls "pen-thoughts": drawing-texts often connected to her drawings and sculptures, with stories or poems inscribed alongside the images. This book collects both her writings and her spoken remarks on art, confirming the deep links between her work and her biography and offering new insights into her creative thinking and process.

The daily practice of painting : writings and interviews, 1962-1993 by Gerhard Richter ( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 457 libraries worldwide
Gerhard Richter, born in Dresden in 1932, is one of the foremost painters of his generation. A great deal has been written about the bewildering heterogeneity of his work over the past 30 years, his seemingly willful and defiant movement between abstract and figurative modes of representation and his use of a variety of methods of applying paint to canvas. And Richter himself is the master of the paradoxical statement. Although he has emphasized that he is foremost a painter and has never been a theorist, throughout his career he has issued provocative and memorable statements.

Ai Weiwei ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
"The first comprehensive monograph on this key figure in China's burgeoning art scene. Often working with ancient materials - beams from destroyed temples, Han dynasty urns - Ai Weiwei (b.1957) creates ingenious sculptures that break new artistic ground while commenting on the rapid transformation of contemporary China. Ai Weiwei's work is consistently innovative and unmistakably original, ranging from his sculptures and photographs to his numerous architectural commissions, and recalls the work of his artistic forebears Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol. A towering figure whose influence can be seen in the multiplicity of his roles: not just an artist, designer and architect, but also curator, publisher, web blogger and cultural compass for an entire generation of Beijing artists."--BOOK JACKET.

Do it ( Book )
18 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 249 libraries worldwide
"Do it" began in 1993 with a discussion among Christian Boltanski, Bertrand Lavier and Hans-Ulrich Obist in the Café Select in Paris. From this encounter arose the idea of an exhibition of do-it-yourself descriptions or procedural instructions for art. In 1993, in cooperation with the AFAA (Association Française d'Action Artistique) twelve original do it texts were translated into eight languages and sent as a diplomatic dispatch to each country with which France maintains diplomatic relations. The first do it took place in September 1994 at the Ritter Kunsthalle In Klagenfurt, Austria.
Anri Sala by Anri Sala ( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and German and held by 240 libraries worldwide
"Anri Sala's work is often about obscurity - obscurity of images but also of language and experience - which can render it both vexingly subtle and uncomfortably immediate. Working in a range of media - including video, photography and installation - and having been raised in Tirana, educated in Paris and now settled in Berlin, Anri Sala represents a truly contemporary international vision. They impact of his work - featured at the world's top venues and exhibitions - endorses Sala's conviction that art can transcend cultural references without losing any of its specificity nor, indeed, its power."--BOOK JACKET.
