Product Description


"The great thing about this book is that - after having read it - I still don't know if artist's studios are physical places or just some kind of mental state. With this anthology, Hoffman shows us that the studio - just like our head - is simply a place where thoughts can run in circles." - Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director, Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Milan. "A fixture of popular accountants and at the same time of serious interest to the artists, the artist's studio has been largely ignored by critics and historians, except to declare it dead. Jens Hoffman, with a characteristically open mind, has gathered a wide-ranging body of texts that show us different ways that artists occupy their studios, and a few strong attempts to theorize its current state." - Katy Siegel, Associate Professor of Art History, Hunter College, CUNY; editor in chief, Art Journal.
