Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This anthology of criticism focuses on the work of multimedia artist Bruce Nauman from a performative and new media perspective. Art historian Morgan's introduction is followed by 15 essays on such topics as Nauman's artistic investigation of his own body. The volume also features 12 reviews of Nauman's work, 5 interviews with the artist, and 10 selections from his own writings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Rain Taxi

Providing a varied and extensive collection of texts by and about Nauman's work, this anthology opens many doors into reading the layers upon layers of this artist's ironic tragi-comedies... With its focus on Nauman from so many perspectives and its concentration on his performance and new media aspects, this book provides meaningful and extensive resources for both admirers and scholars... In the end, it sets a bountiful theoretical, historical, aesthetic, ethical, and critical context for responding to Nauman's productions.

— Brian Bergen-Aurand
