Over the past two decades, French artist Pierre Huyghe has produced an extraordinarybody of work in constant dialogue with temporality. Investigating the possibility of a hypotheticalmode of timekeeping--"parallel presents"-- Huyghe has researched the architecture of theincomplete, directed a puppet opera, founded a temporary school, established a pirate televisionstation, staged celebrations, scripted scenarios, and journeyed to Antarctica in search of amythological penguin. In this first book-length art historical examination of Huyghe and his work,Amelia Barikin traces the artist's continual negotiation with the time codes of contemporarysociety. Offering detailed analyses of Huyghe's works and drawing on extensive interviews withHuyghe and his associates, Barikin finds in Huyghe's projects an alternate way of thinking abouthistory--a "topological historicity" that deprograms (or reprograms) temporal formats.Huyghe once said, "It is through the montage, the way we combine and relate images, that we cancreate a representation of an event that is perhaps more precise than the event itself."Barikinoffers pioneering analyses of Huyghe's lesser-known early works as well as sustained readings oflater, critically acclaimed projects, including No Ghost Just a Shell (2000),L'Expédition scintillante (2002), and A Journey That Wasn't(2005). She emphasizes Huyghe's concepts of "freed time" and "the openpresent," in which anything might happen. Bringing together an eclectic array of subjects andcharacters--from moon walking to situationist practices, from Snow White to Gilles Deleuze--Parallel Presents offers a highly original account of the driving forces behindHuyghe's work

It is often assumed that the verbal and visual languages of indigenous people had little influence upon the classification of scientific, legal, and artistic objects in the metropolises and museums of nineteenth-century colonial powers. However, as this book demonstrates, it is a fallacy that colonized locals merely collected material for interested colonizers. Through an analysis of particular language notations and drawings hidden in colonial documents and a reexamination of cross-cultural communication, the book writes biographies for five objects that exemplify the tensions of nineteenth century history.

The first in a new series from Dis Voir, Encounters asks a well-known contemporary artist to decide which subjects he or she wants to discuss in their book. Each artist's book therefore offers a specific experience in terms of content. In accordance with this principle, each artist also selects a person -- due to certain elective affinities -- with whom he or she would like to share this exchange. At the very least, the resulting collaborative volumes serve as an artistic and political laboratory of the present. In this first installment, French artist Pierre Huyghe chooses to encounter Canadian writer Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X, because of the influence Coupland has had on his generation and on Huyghe's own work. Together they discuss the construction of characters, of narrative techniques based on chance, and the political dimension present in Coupland's work -- themes that are also fundamental questions on Huyghe's projects.

Since the 1990s, critics and curators have broadly accepted the notion that participatory art is the ultimate political art: that by encouraging an audience to take part an artist can promote new emancipatory social relations. Around the world, the champions of this form of expression are numerous, ranging from art historians such as Grant Kester, curators such as Nicolas Bourriaud and Nato Thompson, to performance theorists such as Shannon Jackson. Artificial Hells is the first historical and theoretical overview of socially engaged participatory art, known in the US as “social practice.” Claire Bishop follows the trajectory of twentieth-century art and examines key moments in the development of a participatory aesthetic. This itinerary takes in Futurism and Dada; the Situationist International; Happenings in Eastern Europe, Argentina and Paris; the 1970s Community Arts Movement; and the Artists Placement Group. It concludes with a discussion of long-term educational projects by contemporary artists such as Thomas Hirschhorn, Tania Bruguera, Pawe? Althamer and Paul Chan. Since her controversial essay in Artforum in 2006, Claire Bishop has been one of the few to challenge the political and aesthetic ambitions of participatory art. In Artificial Hells, she not only scrutinizes the emancipatory claims made for these projects, but also provides an alternative to the ethical (rather than artistic) criteria invited by such artworks. Artificial Hells calls for a less prescriptive approach to art and politics, and for more compelling, troubling and bolder forms of participatory art and criticism.

Critical essays by Liam Gillick, most of which were originally printed in art magazines or exhibition catalogues. Known for his ingenious reinterpretation of Conceptual and Minimalist art, Liam Gillick has often used language, whether in type on a wall or on a page, as a site of artistic, theoretical, and political intervention. He was active in the largely European 1990s art scene that included Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe, Carsten H. ller, Angela Bulloch, Douglas Gordon, and Rirkrit Tiravanija. The book also examines the recently renewed interest in Felix Gonzalez-Torres, John Baldessari, and Allen Ruppersberg.
