THYSSEN-BORNEMISZA ART CONTEMPORARY

Los Carpinteros: Handwork, Constructing the World

Special Edition

Published by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary
Edited by Gudrun Ankele, Daniela Zyman. Texts by Eugenio Valdés Figueroa, Paulo Herkenhoff, Helen Molesworth, Rochelle Steiner.

The Cuban duo Los Carpinteros renounces individual authorship to sabotage the disciplines of design and architecture from within. This limited edition of the first comprehensive Los Carpinteros monograph—itself voted one of “Austria's Most Beautiful Books” for 2010—comes with a pair of flip flops designed by the artists. These flip flops are imprinted with a street map of Old Havana and are meant for the owner to wear while soaking up the city’s atmosphere. As the artists put it: “We wanted people who read our book to have not just the intellectual experience of what we have tried to achieve in our work—i.e. communicating the unique experience of the Contemporary Cuban Artist—but also the visceral experience of ‘feeling’ the streets of our home and by doing so thinking about what it is and was to be Cuban during the years of our artistic journey.”
