X was a one-year, experimental non-profit initiative, whose goal was to inspire new ideas for producing and experiencing contemporary art. It ran the gamut from solo shows by international stars like Hans Haacke to a 24-hour Bring Your Own Art (BYOA) marathon event. This sourcebook surveys one dense year of art at 548 West 22nd Street.

Born as a vehicle for national propaganda, the art biennial today has become an outsize phenomenon mobilizing not only artists, curators and gallerists but sponsors, celebrities and politicians, commanding huge press attention and deciding the careers of artists worldwide. For a city to host a biennial today has colossal ramifications. This anthology on the art biennial gathers previously published seminal texts from around the world alongside commissioned contributions from the leading scholars, curators, critics and thinkers today--among them Carlos Basualdo, Daniel Buren, John Clark, Okwui Enwezor, Bruce Ferguson, Milena Hoegsberg, Ranjit Hoskote, Caroline A. Jones, Jakouba Konaté, Gerardo Mosquera and Rafal Niemojewski. Tracing the genealogy of the standard exhibition format--including biennials but also other recurrent exhibitions such as triennials and quadrennials--and examining some of the most famous examples of the twentieth and twenty-first century, from the Venice Biennale to the Johannesburg Biennial and the Havana Bienal to Documenta and the Asian biennials, this reader explores the artistic, theoretical, political and other ambitions of such large-scale exhibition projects. It is certain to be a vital resource for scholars, students, curators, artists and critics alike.

Recently democracy has been the watchword for a range of disparate, yet apparently convergent contestations and negotiations within the global order. Democracy Unrealized, detailing the results of Platform1, the first of four conferences held in conjunction with Documenta 11, presents a context within which the interpretive and conceptual regimes surrounding democracy can be reargued against the claims of a neoliberal ideology. From this globalist viewpoint, democracy described as an unfinished project requires no structural changes, for it is complete in all its foundational features, requiring only small technical adjustments and minor tinkering. This is how the main Western democracies have seen themselves--at best as "incomplete implementations" of equality and justice, rather than as limited, flawed, dead-ended, and problematic. In response to this presumption, this book proceeds from the idea that realizing democracy is partly a matter of bringing to light what liberal democracy has promised but failed to deliver. The emphasis here is on the potential for revision, a reevaluation of values, and the extension and creative transformation necessary to keep in step with 21st-century globalizing processes. This is democracy as an ever open, essentially unfinishable project that in principle has fallen short of its ideals.

Published by The Fabric Workshop and Museum. Text by Carlos Basualdo, David Elliott, Marion Boulton Stroud, Wang Mingxian.
Perhaps the best-known Chinese artist of his generation, Cai Guo-Qiang (born 1967) is famed for his ambitious explosion projects and large, theatrical sculptures and installations. Fallen Blossoms presents his newest works, documenting a 2009-2010 exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Fabric Workshop, with 75 full-color reproductions of the explosion project Fallen Blossoms and the gunpowder drawing "Time Scroll." Also included are photographs of the ongoing work "Time Flies Like a Weaving Shuttle," which involves the labors of five Tujia weavers in residence at the Fabric Workshop, weaving on traditional looms, and which is in progress for the duration of the Fabric Workshop exhibition. Fallen Blossoms contains an introduction by Marion Boulton Stroud, artist's statement by Guo-Qiang and essays by Carlos Basualdo, David Elliott and Wang Mingxian.

Published by Charta. Edited by Lóránd Hegyi. Essays by Carlos Basualdo, Anna Detheridge, Yuko Hasegawa and Jean-Hubert Martin.
What is the role of the contemporary artist in a reality that interprets cultures as conflicting parties and Europe as a closed space? How does his identity develop in relation to European cultures and those that exist elsewhere in the world? Does there exist an acceptable comparative footing that permits otherwise explosive diversities to engage in dialogue with each other? These questions were the starting point for an international forum on the deepest cultural roots of European thought. Hosted in Como in 2004 by the Antonio Ratti Foundation, the forum welcomed renowned intellectuals, curators and critics who posed crucial questions about the implications and future prospects of creativity. Presented here are the panels and discussions that arose from the forum on an historically and traditionally divided multi-identity Europe, which is now attempting to unite politically and economically.

Slovenian artist Marjetica Potrc discovers beauty in the unplanned urban landscapes of shantytowns, trailer parks, and barrios. In her installations in various art institutions across the globe, she sends instructions to the musum staff on how to build her installations--often inspired by a type of shelter found halfway across the world--out of local materials. Here she instructs/constructs a massive installation of housing units based on observations made of temporary shelters and gated communities in Caracas, the West Bank, and West Palm Beach. Urgent Architecture Includes a DVD of an interview with the artist.

Published by Hatje Cantz. Edited by Ann Bremner. Essays by Carlos Basualdo, Dan Cameron, Helio Oiticica, Ivana Bentes. Introduction by Sherri Geldin, Udo Kittelmann, and Lisa Phillips.
One of the most important exponents of contemporary art in South America, Helio Oiticica creates multimedia room installations which intertwine social themes, experimental elements, and appropriations from popular culture, film, and music. This book focuses on works which have rarely been seen elsewhere, works in which Oiticica questions the traditional relationship between the audience and the world of the movies, such as his "quasi-cinemas," which combine slide projections and music. The lavish nine-part sequence "Black Experiments in Cosmacocoa" is published here for the first time, alongside Oiticica's own notes and critical texts.
Published by Hatje Cantz. Edited by Peter Noever, MAK Vienna. Essays by Carlos Basualdo, et al.
Since the mid-1970s, prominent Austrian artist Franz West has created objects in which use is the most important criterion for reception. After creating "Fittings," plaster and papier-mache objects meant to be attached to the human body and interacted with by their wearer, and their logical extension, "seating equipment," West sought to create a setting for a new kind of experience. Merciless presents little-seen work which West has constructed over the past five years and which addresses these late concerns. Of special focus is an expansive installation West developed for the MAK in Vienna, the largest of his completed works to date.

A modern update of the Medieval trade manuals--the 'come-along-with-me' (vade mecum) of Medieval craftsmen--Words of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum is an invaluable guidebook for anyone interested in contemporary art and the practice of curating. In over fifty short essays, this compendium offers advice to a new generation of curators from veterans of contemporary art exhibitions who, over the past 25 years, have played a crucial role in shaping what we see today, and how we see it. While providing an intimate look at the minds of these master curators, Words of Wisdom also establishes the curator's craft as an important vocation that has changed tremendously over the past quarter-century. In the course of their musings, the curators offer behind-the-scenes insights into influential exhibitions and institutions and the contemporary art world they represent. Among the contributors are Jean-Christophe Amman, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt, Germany; Donna de Salvo, curator at the Tate Gallery, London; Richard Flood, chief curator at the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; independent curator Hans Ulrich Obrist; and Marcia Tucker, founding director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
