Description

This book on labyrinths is wonderful! It enlarges the traditional catalog of labyrinths so much and so well, being itself labyrinthine,” remarked French deconstructionist philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy on the first edition of the text. The starting point for this transcript of four lectures is a public artwork that Olaf Nicolai installed in Paris in 1998. Nicolai, whose work has been shown at Documenta X and the 49th and 50th Venice Biennales, uses diverse media to question the ways in which we use our physical bodies to encounter the everyday environment. By exploring and combining a broad spectrum of topics related to the labyrinth theme, the book serves as both a reference system to Nicolai’s work and an independent source book dealing with labyrinthian matter, from the fable of the minotaur to the floor plan of IKEA. Translated from German by Sadie Plant.
