UNITED STATES OF LATIN AMERICA. Ed. by Jens Hoffmann. Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit, 2016. Published in association with Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 148 pp. 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956792243 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: Featuring 34 contemporary emerging Latin American artists literally from A to Z (Pablo Accinelli to Carla Zaccagnini), two curators and two institutions, this small tightly curated and extensively illustrated catalog is a major contemporary survey of recent art from Latin America. Bringing together their shared and ongoing engagement with artistic practices from Latin America, the curators draw attention to the geographic territories of Latin America itself, its relation within the wider scope of the Americas, and its position in a global artistic context. The book offers a framework for critical insight into new artworks by young talents such as Pedro Reyes (Mexico) and Clarissa Tossin (Brazil) dealing with crucial social, industrial or ecological concerns while interrogating the very categories and terminologies used to construct the notion of "Latin America." One chapter per artist is accompanied by a sample of the featured work, installation shots, assorted essays and informative interviews, making this an excellent contemporary record of art in the Americas in the early 21st century.
