Description

ZIGGURAT is constructed around a conversation between Hans Ulrich Obrist and the remaining survivor of General Idea, AA Bronson. Using the image of the Mesopotamian ziggurat, which appeared in the groups earliest works, the publication unravels the twenty-five year history of the artists’ group. Profusely illustrated in color and b/w, the book provides an overview of their prodigious output of paintings, performances, installations, photographs, publications, and especially their non-stop flow of low-cost editions. The book is conceived by AA Bronson.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition General Idea: Ziggurat, November 30, 2017 to January 13, 2018 at Mitchell-Innes & Nash (New York).

Cloth hardcover, sewn-bound, colour

  1. ziggurat book
