MINIMALIST WORKS FROM THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM By Jonathan Horowitz
25 x 25cm, 60 pages, Full colour printed, Perfect bound, Softcover, Ed. of 1000, 2011
"Published on the occasion of Jonathan Horowitz’s first solo exhibition in a UK institution, this catalogue combines newly commissioned artworks for Dundee Contemporary Arts and works from the past two decades of the artist’s practice. Minimalist Works from the Holocaust Museum takes as its focus the function and use of art, particularly minimalist art, in relation to socio-political reality. Combining the imagery and ambivalence of pop art with the engaged criticality of conceptualism, Horowitz is highly regarded for tackling contentious political issues of the day, as well as the political silences of postwar art.
This publication reveals an artist with a sharp, radical mind who cuts through our safety nets with defiant and brilliant art."
