Jean-Michel Basquiat: Words are All We Have
From graffiti to word as motif. This book features not only the trailblazing innovation, but also the treatment of language by Jean-Michel Basquiat: the first African-American artist to receive art world attention. Edited with text by Dieter Buchhart, you will discover the complex structures and collage-like manifestations once described by American curator and critic Robert Storr as “eye rap” in numerous papers of different sizes, rich texts, and a wealth of documentary photographs and portraits.
