Over the course of his 50-year career, John Baldessari never stopped exploring the seemingly infinite ways that words and images can be manipulated to create new layers of narrative meaning in art. In the 1960s, he was drawn to a combination of text and photography as the most effective vehicles for his creative intentions, with many of his subsequent pieces directly addressing the viewer with hand-painted questions about the nature of art. This book features a wide selection of Baldessari’s own writings from 1968 to 2011 alongside reproductions of his work. Edited with text by Matilda Olof-Ors. Text by John Baldessari, Ann-Sofi Noring, Gitte Ørskou.
