London: Phaidon, 1998. Softcover. VG/VG (a light scuff mark at closed page bottoms - NOT a remainder mark). Glossy white card wraps. Black and color-illus. dj with white lettering. 158 pp. with color and bw images throughout. "A monograph of Kabakov's long career. Boris Groys analyzes its philosophical and formal dimensions in terms of art history as well as the artist's own biography. David A. Ross discusses the artist's practice and its bridging of Eastern and Western contemporary Art. Iwona Blazwick concentrates on Kabakov's contributions to Skulptur Projekte in Munster (1997), Looking Up. Reading the Words, a sculpture that dares to offer 'the very best thing that you have ever done or seen in your life.' An extract from the short story, 'The Steppe,' by Anton Chekov, is complemented by Kabakov's writings, which range from extracts from his Kafka-esque The Life of Flies to fictional letters of complaint on communal life in the former Soviet Union, to texts on the significance of the legacies of Cezanne and Malevich."
