Christian Boltanski
by Lynn Gumpert
Publisher's Description
Christian Boltanski, one of France's best-known post-war artists, is the author of the highly personal and sometimes disconcerting multi-media installations represented in this book. Using media as diverse as paper clippings, used clothes, snapshots and flickering lights and their shadows, he build an original world of cultural and historical symbols that question the most fundamental social assumptions and contemporary social contradictions. In her erudite essay, Lynn Gumpert provides a context for these haunting and memorable works.
