Includes profiles of major artists of the movement, including a short text followed by pages of full-page photographs for each artist.
Artists featured: Walter de Maria, Michelangelo Pisteletto, Stephen Kaltenbach, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Beuys, Eva Hesse, Michael Heizer, Ger van Elk, Lawrence Weiner, Luciano Fabro, Bruce Nauman, Joseph Kosuth, Jan Dibbets, Giovanni Anselmo, Robert Barry, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Dennis Oppenheim, Barry Flanagan, Robert Smithson, Giulio Paolini, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Alighiero Boetti, Giuseppe Penone, Franz Erhard Walther, Hans Haacke, Gilberto Zorio, Robert Morris, Marinus Boezem, Carl Andre, Emilio Prini, Richard Serra.
“This book does not aim at being an objective and general analysis of the phenomenon of art or life, but is rather an attempt to flank (both art and life) as accomplices of the changes and attitudes in the development of their daily becoming. This book does not attempt to be objective since the awareness of objectivity is false consciousness. The book, made up of photographs and written documents, bases its critical and editorial assumptions on the knowledge that criticism and iconographic documents give limited vision and partial perception of artistic work. The book, when it reproduces the documents of artistic work, refutes the linguistic mediation of photography. The book, even though it wants to avoid the logic of consumption, is a consumer’s item. … This book produces a collection of already old material. … In this book there is no need to reflect in order to seek a unitary and reassuring value, immediately refuted by the the authors themselves, rather there is the necessity to look into it for the changes, limits, precariousness and instability of artistic work.” — text from Celant’s introduction “Stating That.”
* Condition: Good-Very Good (tight, clean copy, very light cover/spine wear and age tanning to an otherwise solid book, minor marking to title page) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

When Attitudes Become Form
Bern 1969 / Venice 2013
Published by Fondazione Prada
Edited by Germano Celant. Introduction by Miuccia Prada. Preface by Miuccia Prada, Patrizio Bertelli. Text by Gwen L. Allen, Pierre Bal Blanc, Claire Bishop, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Charles Esche, Boris Groys, Jens Hoffmann, Chus Martínez, Glenn Phillips, Christian Rattemeyer, Dieter Roelstraete, Anne Rorimer, Terry Smith, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Francesco Stocchi, Jan Verwoert. Interviews with Thomas Demand, Rem Koolhaas.
In a daring act of historical reconstruction, the curator Germano Celant, in dialogue with Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaas, has recreated Harald Szeemann’s epochal “Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form”, held at the Bern Kunsthalle in 1969, and installed by Celant at the magnificent Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice in June–November 2013. Szeemann’s show was a dialogue with the Bern Kunsthalle, and Celant has reprised its spirit by placing the works in dialogue with the Ca’ Corner della Regina–a very different building, in its Venetian grandeur, to the Kunsthalle.
This publication is divided into three parts: the first reproduces a complete collection of photo documentation of the original exhibit in 1969, many photographs previously unpublished, taken by photographers during the exhibition (Claudio Abate, Leonardo Bezzola, Balthasar Burkhard, Siegfried Kuhn, Dölf Preisig, Harry Shunk and Albert Winkler); the second compiles essays and interviews on Celant’s project (texts by Gwen L. Allen, Pierre Bal Blanc, Claire Bishop, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Charles Esche, Boris Groys, Jens Hoffmann, Chus Martínez, Glenn Phillips, Christian Rattemeyer, Dieter Roelstraete, Anne Rorimer, Terry Smith, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Francesco Stocchi, Jan Verwoert. Interviews with Thomas Demand, Rem Koolhaas) and the third includes the installation views of the show in Venice. The book is completed by a “Register” of works included in both shows.
A heavy, scientific volume of almost 800 pages that has become an invaluable reference for those interested in Conceptual Art, Minimalism, Art Povera, Land Art, Curatorial history, and much more.

Passages in Modern Sculpture
By Rosalind E. Krauss
Rosalind E. Krauss, editor and cofounder of October magazine, is University Professor at Columbia University. She is the author of The Originality of the Avant-Garde and Other Modernist Myths, The Optical Unconscious, Bachelors, and Perpetual Inventory, all published by the MIT Press.
“…Krauss’s book is undoubtedly the best treatment of its subject yet written. As a textbook, it ought to raise the level of discourse in art history classes, for it is the meaning, not the chronology, of sculpture since Rodin that is the book’s central concern. Krauss avoids the conventional plodding survey and divides the book into a sequence of ‘case studies’ that permit sustained attention to specific works and artists. In so doing, she attempts to trace a ‘tradition’ to stand behind that portion of American sculpture of the past 15 years which she espouses critically.”
—Art in America
“Distinguished art historian and critic Rosalind Krauss analyzes with exceptional clarity and insight the major works that have led 20th century sculpture from the traditional and figurative to the revolutionary conceptual art of the 1970s—an art which has developed a new ‘syntax’ that discards ‘narrative’ for instantaneous impact and boldly breaks new ground. Beginning with a penetrating study of Rodin’s modernity in rejecting ‘narrative’ in his ‘The Gates of Hell,’ she moves successively through detailed examinations of futurism, constructivism, Duchamps’ ‘readymades,’ Brancusi, David Smith’s ‘Tanktotem,’ sculptural realism, and the introduction of light, motion, and theatrical elements into sculpture by Picabia, Calder, Oldenburg, and others right up to younger sculptors like Carl Andre, Blochner, and others [including Robert Morris, Don Judd, Richard Serra, Sol Le Witt, Robert Smithson, and Michael Heizer]. As critic and theorist, Krauss makes demands that will challenge even the most sophisticated.”
“The book is well illustrated in black and white and is, for an art book, of a convenient and manageable size. The text is rigorously formalistic and analytical and organized around specific sculptural considerations such as the treatment of narrative time, the handling of space, and the game strategies of surrealist sculpture. It is an approach that pays off particularly well in the author’s discussions of Rodin and David Smith.”
