EXPERIMENTAL PRESERVATION. Ed. by Jorge Otero-Pailos et al. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2016. 160 pp. with 150 ills. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783037784921 In English.
Publisher's description: Old things, historic things, smelly dirty things, all the things that were considered the very opposite of "contemporary," have suddenly irrupted forcefully into architecture and art, blurring their boundaries. This book takes stock of the emerging generation behind this turn, and examines their experimental engagements with the preservation of culturally charged objects. Structured around a series of interdisciplinary dialogues among practitioners and thinkers, and illustrated with recent projects, the book provides a window into the unfolding intellectual frameworks, aesthetic modes, cultural ambitions, and political commitments that are the basis of experimental preservation.
