CRITICAL SPATIAL PRACTICE 8: JILL MAGID -- THE PROPOSAL. Ed. by Nikolaus Hirschet al. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 180 pp. 15 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783956791888 In English.
Publisher's description: The eighth volume in the ongoing CSP series edited by Hirsch and Miessen, The Proposal focuses on American artist Jill Magid's The Barragan Archives. Magid's multiyear project examining the career of Pritzker Prize-winning architect Luis Barragan (1902-1988) questions the forms of power, public access and copyright used to construct artistic legacy. After his death, Barrag.n's archive was split in two. His personal archive went to his home in Mexico, now a UNE SCO World Heritage Site, while his professional archive was purchased in 1995 by Vitra chairman Rolf Fehlbaum and housed at the corporation's headquarters, where it became inaccessible to the public. As Magid attempts to bring together Barrag.n's professional and personal archives and probes the architect's official and private selves, she engages the intersections of the psychological and the judicial, national identity and repatriation, international property rights and copyright law, authorship and ownership, the human body and the body of work. Eight additional essays round out Magrid's discussion.
