This richly illustrated book contains more than 300 images (including 180 in color) of paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, videos, installations, and conceptual art from 1986 to the present, as well work from a recent installation of Dan Perjovschi’s at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It also contains an original text by the artists, “AutoChronology,” which is a timeline of their life to the present, and the most comprehensive bibliography on the artists to date. Three essays discuss the artists: a substantial survey text by art historian and curator Kristine Stiles, the leading scholar on the Perjovschi’s art; another by Romanian-American author and National Public Radio commentator Andrei Codrescu; and a third by the Romanian scholar, curator, and recipient of the 1996 Carl Einstein Prize for Art Criticism in Germany, Marius Babias. The catalog includes interviews with each artist by the Romanian-American art historian and curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, Roxana Marcoci, and by Kristine Stiles.
