Part of the acclaimed 'Documents of Contemporary Art' series of anthologies . I welcome this new book about materiality. It explores questions of embodiment in our age of virtuality, and that is no small matter. - Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, International curator and art historian This anthology investigates materiality in art that attempts to expand notions of time, space, process or participation. It looks at materials that obstruct, disrupt or interfere with social norms, surfacing as impure formations and messy, unstable substances. It re-examines the notion of 'dematerialization'; addresses materialist critiques of artistic production; surveys the relationship between materiality and bodies; explores the vitality of substances, and the concepts of intermateriality and transmateriality that have emerged in the hybrid zones of digital experimentation. Artists surveyed include: Georges Adeagbo, Carl Andre, Janine Antoni, Amy Balkin, Artur Barrio, Robert Barry, Helen Chadwick, Mel Chin, herman de vries, Mark Dion, Jimmie Durham, VALIE EXPORT, Chohreh Feyzdjou, Romuald Hazoume, Ilya Kabakov, Mike Kelley, Zoe Leonard, Anthony McCall, Teresa Margolles, Robert Morris, ORLAN, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Tino Seghal, Shozo Starling, Paul Thek, Paul Vanouse, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, and Kara Walker. Writers include: Joseph A. Amato, Karen Barad, Judith Butler, Elizabeth Grosz, Hubert Damisch, Georges Didi-Huberman, Natasha Eaton, Briony Fer, Vilem Flusser, Jens Hauser, Dieter Hoffmann-Axthelm, Tim Ingold, Wolfgang Kemp, Julia Kristeva, Esther Leslie, Jean Francois-Lyotard, Sadie Plant, Dietmar R bel, Viktoria Schmidt-Linsenhoff, Simon Taylor, Hilke Wagner, Monika Wagner, and Gillian Whiteley.
