The Essential and Incomplete Sade for Sade’s Sake

Paul Chan

Artists' Books
22 × 28 × 1.5 cm

This artist book, designed by Chan, brings together for the first time drawings, writings, and fonts he created for Sade for Sade’s sake, his monumental project that premiered at the 2009 Venice Biennale.

This unique media rich ebook includes video clips and never before seen drawings and images. It also features writings by Chan that explores the main ideas behind his project.

Using the work of the philosopher Marquis de Sade (1740–1814) as a departure point, Sade for Sade’s sake is a five-hour-and-forty-five-minute video projection as well as a constellation of other works that together evoke the spirit of Sade’s radical critique of freedom and reason for the 21st century.
