Ongoing Becomings: Retrospective 1989-2009

OB Cover Only

This is the first comprehensive monograph devoted to artist Renée Green. Over the past 20 years, through film, video, sound art, photographs, prints, banners, texts, websites and ephemera, Green’s work has comprised complex, multi-layered archive-like installations, employing a vast array of sources, which always urge viewers to become active participants. Included in this superbly illustrated volume are newly commissioned essays by a host of esteemed media scholars, art historians, critics and curators–Nora Alter, Diedrich Diederichsen, Kobena Mercer, Catherine Queloz, Gloria Sutton and Elvan Zabunyan–who engage issues central to Green’s oeuvre, such as genealogy, archives and their reworkings, movements and displacements, site specificity and location. The book also includes an interview between the artist and philosopher Julianne Rebentisch.
