ART POVERA-cover-1ArtPovera-spread-1

Art Povera
Conceptual, Actual or Impossible Art? Germano Celant (Ed.)

First printing of “Art Povera”, the now legendary critical/photographic book by Germano Celant (Italian art historian, critic and curator) documenting the so-called “Art Povera /Arte Povera” movement (meaning “poor art”, coined by Celant in 1967) and published by Studio Vista, London in 1969 and printed in Italy.

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.
