Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Mona Hatoum is one of the most important contemporary artists and one of my favourite. This volume presents her work up to 1997 in numerous photographs. It includes interviews by Michael Archer, Sara Diamond and Claudia Spinelli, assessments of her work by Guy Brett and Catherine de Zegher, selected extracts of texts relevant to her work by Piero Manzoni and Edward W. Said, a Chronology and Bibliography. The reproductions are well presented, the information detailed and comprehensive. One of my most favourite works of hers, Measures of Distance (1988), is available on YouTube. (VI-10)
