Arte povera 1966-1980. Libri e documenti. Ediz. italiana e inglese
Anselmo, Boetti, Calzolari, Fabro, Kounellis, Mario and Marisa Merz, Paolini, Pascali, Penone, Pistoletto, Prini, Zorio: the protagonists of the most important Italian artistic movement of the Second World War are not through “traditional” With a privileged view of their editorial production. Art books designed, constructed and reinvented as works “in themselves”, some of them with a programmatic value that makes them extremely important for understanding the whole movement. A rich and thorough introduction analyzes the current Art of Poor Art for people, times, places and texts, and each artist is presented individually through a review of their books and personal exhibitions, with a rich set of images of the documents described. The volume completes an accurate history of collective exhibitions (1966-2005) and a wide bibliography of essays and articles about “the poor” appearing in volume or in art magazines (1966-2006). The “books” necklace, which collects contributions from the best Italian and foreign scholars on the artist’s book, is thus enriched with a new contribution.
