Chris Burden: Back to You
Text by Chris Burden.
A selection of Burden’s self-published magazines brought back to print, collected together in a magnum opus of artist’s books
From his action-based performances of the 1970s to the technical feats of his later monumental sculptures, American visual artist Chris Burden (1946–2015) consistently challenged material, physical and political boundaries. Back to You offers an unprecedented opportunity to experience Burden’s artist’s book practice. Comprising facsimiles of six rare publications, reissued for the first time since their original release, this new collection presents a comprehensive overview of Burden’s interest in storytelling across media. These six titles comprise two records of his early performance works—Chris Burden 71–73 (1974) and Chris Burden 74–77 (1978)—as well as B-Car (1977) and Full Financial Disclosure (1977), and his print series The Master Builder (2000) and Coyote Series (2005). Brought together for the first time as an interrelated whole, Back to You shows Burden’s radical and uncompromising spirit, and introduces his work of fierce social consciousness to a new generation.
