OLIVIA PLENDER: RISE EARLY, BE INDUSTRIOUS. Ed. by Remco de Blaaij et al. MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, 2016. Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791741 In English.
Publisher's description: The first significant survey of work by British artist Olivia Plender (b. 1977), this substantial monograph navigates the artist's evolving attitudes to historical and contemporary forms of communication and education in her research-based practice. From a reappraisal of her project Google Office (2010), in which artistic agency meets Liberation Management, to her rethinking of the Open University as a model for the educational role of television, her work is a critical envisioning of labor's extensive influence. To this end, she also addresses the work ethic embedded into mainstream educational systems during the industrial era, and the alternative movements that placed creativity and the arts as central to an attempt at emancipation. In specially commissioned essays and interviews, archival material, and new texts by the artist, this publication addresses the in-depth investigation of Plender's research and artwork into educational models and their relation to social organization. Essays by Angus Cameron, Maeve Connolly, Lars Bang Larsen and Tirdad Zolghadr.
