The first publication in an exciting new series for the 21st century, Autobiography is designed as a 'portable exhibition' based on a subject of central importance to art and everyday life. Barbara Steiner and Jun Yang, two 'author-creators' selected from the world's leading artists, curators and critics, have chosen a variety of material with which to produce a 'show' organized into themed 'rooms' - here Alter Ego, Disappearance, Facts, Authenticity, Hybrids, Race, Political Systems, Media and Self-Reflection. Informative texts accompany the work of each artist and extracted quotes, whether from novels, poems or interviews, offer further illuminating perspectives. Each title in the series also contains a lively discussion in which writers, curators, artists and others discuss the topic of the book. This groundbreaking publication, whether through Cindy Sherman's carefully staged 'self-portraits', Andy Warhol's Polaroids or Tracey Emin's rumpled bed, explores the changing role of the individual in modern society and expands our understanding of what it means to be alive today.
