Most of the time, ready-made, conceptual art is difficult to understand and appreciate. This little red book about Cuban artist Ariel Orozco is the perfect approach to that particular kind of art. In words of Chris Sharp, "[contemporary art] is known to levy greater and greater demands of faith from its viewer, which could be said to yield, in the worst case scenario, an all but preemptive loss of religion (e.g., 'my five year old could do that!'); and in the best case scenario, proportional returns of marvelousness." And marvelousness in daily life is what the work of Orozco intends to recover: the so-called "marvelous-real" of the Cuban literary tradition, now at the heart of plastic arts. In the end, after a conclusive paper by the specialist, the reader is left to prove everything that has been said turning over the pages with the reproduction of selected works by the artist. Just as it must be.
