The Witness

The Witness is a new book by The GAM Underground Project, Torino.

A publication to accompany the exhibition All the Memory of the World at the Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Turin (The GAM). It aims to introduce the public to a selection of texts investigating the relationship between different historical methods, art and images. The book focuses on three main themes, which are divided into three different sections, each bringing forth a memory that has been ‘buried’ by a general aesthetic over-production. Images from the world’s history are observed through a ‘privileged moment in time’ in which the artist is identified as the only possible witness to our present.

Contributors include: Haris Epaminonda, Simon Fujiwara, Arnaldo Momigliano, Rossella Biscotti, Carlo Ginzburg, Patrizio di Massimo, Sean Snyder, Hito Steyerl, Clemens Von Wedemeyer, Elizabeth Edwards, Elena Volpato, Marnie Hughes-Warrington, Giorgio Agamben, Frederick N. Bohrer, Frances Haskell
