 Item
Identifier: CC-41464-43449
Scope and Contents Marvin Sackner reviewed the book and wrote a blurb for the dust jacket. Betty Bright is a co-founder and curator of the Minneapolis Center for Book Arts who was responsible for over 50 exhibitions in a nine year-period. She has written a book on artist books that removes the chaos from the many flavors of this genre. Her analysis is confined almost exclusively to British and American writers and artists. She discusses artist books chronologically based upon the classification of the fine press book, deluxe book, bookwork, sculptural books and hybrids She begins the journey with the books by William Morris of the English Arts and Crafts movement in the late nineteenth century. She mentions that Morris was preoccupied with the design of the book because he believed that such books should not only tell a story but cause the reader to enter into a new world, a remark that seems apropos to the artist book today. Along the way, she cites exhibitions and catalogues, some well known and...

Identifier: CC-30537-31966

He describes Kocman's work as "a synthesis combining intellectual detachment informed by his conceptual experience with a remarkable sensibility and strong lyricism and with a continuous questioning of the nature of art." Several examples of Kocman's works are held by the Sackner Archive. For example, the catalogue depicts a reproduction of Poe's "The Raven," one of Kocman's paper re-making books that is held by the Sackner Archive.

Scope and Contents Underground In contemporary society this is a wider concept applied to social stratification. It usually refers to groups less educated and less classified than the civil majority and their mainstream establishments, which function 'beneath' or independently of the latter. Related words include 'parallel or alternative societies/layers', 'second publicity', 'resistance', 'opposition', 'subculture', etc. Henceforth I shall mostly refer to the artistic underground, which I understand, on the one hand, as artistic community which is excluded from art organizations and the art business and hence is often relegated to social insecurity, and, on the other, as the artistically interested layers of intellectuals, students or sympathizers In special cases (such as in an era of political repression) professional artists may also belong to the artistic underground. Another frequent occurrence has been that representatives of the art establishment freely choose to move towards the underground,...
