A stunning book—Andrea Fraser turns the art museum inside out, time and again, in her incisive and mercilessly witty deconstructions. A rare combination of committed artistic practice working hand-in-hand with the insights of cultural theory.

Lynne Cooke

Andrea Fraser has crafted an exemplary artistic practice devolving from institutional critique. Central to her work from its beginnings are texts that assume diverse guises—research, analysis, theory—and diverse voices—witty, dry, affecting, clinical. This much-anticipated compendium richly demonstrates her singular ability to nullify normative distinctions between the work of art and analytic commentary, between the psychoanalytic and the fictive, as she mines the interwoven desires of the principal players in the art world—museums, artists, and audiences.
