AKADEMIE X: LESSONS IN ART + LIFE. Phaidon Press Limited, London, 2015. 352 pp. with 366 ills. (297 col.). 29 x 23 cm. ISBN 9780714867366 In English.
Publisher's description: Akademie X: Lessons in Art + Life brings together a faculty of artists and writers from across the globe, including high profile art educators, such as Marina Abramovic, Carol Bove, Mark Dion, Olafur Eliasson, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, Miranda July, Bob Nickas, Raqs Media Collective, Neo Rauch, John Stezaker, Richard Wentworth and Christopher Williams. Each of these 'tutors' has provided a unique lesson that aims to provoke, inspire and stimulate. Lively, entertaining and poignant, the contributors draw on their extensive experience in the contemporary art world, to share previously untold stories and identify the crucial things they wish they'd known at the start of their careers. Their advice ranges from practical considerations about making art and managing professional relationships, to ideological perspectives on the nature of learning and the state of art education in the twenty-first century. Many also propose 'assignments' to spark creative thinking and the entries are illustrated with visually compelling art works to engage and inspire the reader. A must-read for aspiring arts professionals, Akademie X: Lessons in Art + Life will also engage everyone with an interest in the lives of artists.
