Materiality

Sale price £16.95 Regular price

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.
