THE LAST PAINTING THEORY: STARTS WHEN ALL THE OTHERS HAVE ENDED... FRANCK BRAGIGAND. Katia Baudin et al. Jap Sam Books, Heijningen, 2016.

Publisher's description: Museum director Katia Baudin once described Dutch artist Frank Bragigand as the "last true modernist." Over the past 10 years, as part of his "Restoring Daily Life" project, Bragigand has been over-painting building elements, discarded objects and mass-produced products he finds in the streets of New York, Amsterdam and Marrakech, transforming them and re-contextualizing them as art. His rich use of color and his sculptural sense are beautifully illustrated in over 700 photographs in this handsome survey monograph presenting over 30 years of the artist's work. Addressing questions of production and worth, Bragigand's work critiques mass consumption while at the same time questioning the value attributed to artwork. His objects and installations appear in design, industry, architecture, museums, public spaces and art institutions. The Last Painting Theory includes essays by Katia Baudin, artist Kie Ellens, critic/curator Jean-Marc Huitorel, writer Daphne Pappers, museum director Emmanuel Ropers and critical theorist Bart Verschaffel.
