Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

Drawing on a dazzling array of sources, Documents of Utopia makes a significant contribution to our understanding of two, seemingly opposed, trends in contemporary art practice: the archival turn and the burgeoning interest in utopia. Paolo Magagnoli offers a clear and sophisticated argument that a desire to recover the past can also be one to rethink the future. -- Paul Wilson, Ithaca College
