Alex da Corte: True Life

Edited by Claus Due, William Pym. Text by Hilton Als, Charlie Fox, Martine Syms, William Pym, Moritz Wesseler.

Eminem as emblem of America throughout Alex Da Corte’s oeuvre

This book exhaustively documents Philadelphia-based installation artist Alex Da Corte’s (born 1980) preoccupation with the musician Eminem across four exhibitions. From Detroit to Cologne, from an artist-run space to a major international museum, Da Corte’s work parallels Eminem’s career through his thirties, reappearing, evolving alongside America, explaining more of himself each time. Eminem’s place in culture and his role in Da Corte’s practice, as well as the larger story of American identity, is explored through recent and commissioned essays by Hilton Als, Charlie Fox, William Pym, Martine Syms and Moritz Wesseler, as well as manipulated found texts and an extensive Q&A with Danish filmmaker Jřrgen Leth, whose 1982 work Andy Warhol Eating a Hamburger strongly informs the discussion. True Life is both an uncompromising reference book and a work of fantasy.
