PASSAGES DE L'IMAGE (Image Passages). Fundacio Caixa de Pensions, Barcelona, 1991. Organized by Centre Georges Pompidou, Musee national d'art moderne, Paris (French edition published 1990). 282 pp. with 483 ills. (77 col.). 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 8476643039 Trilingual in Catalan, English and Spanish (checklist in Catalan only).
Presenting avant-garde installations of video, photography and film by 16 artists (including Jeff Wall, Dan Graham, Bill Viola, Michael Snow, Suzanne Lafont, Marcel Odenbach and Bill Henson), this provocative catalogue explores a "crisis of the image" in art, perceived as originating in the invention of photography and intensifying with the proliferation of new technologies in image reproduction and the rise of non-traditional modes of artistic expression. Seven diverse theoretical texts evaluate the complex nature of contemporary media art with reference to important cinematic and photographic works of the past, and individual critical essays accompany photographs of the exhibited installations and stills from the film and video works. Volume shows light shelfwear.
