'The first comprehensive survey of over 20 years of work, this excellent publication explores McCarthy's Disneyesque installations and slapstick performances.' (Stills) 'The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about.' (Artforum) 'The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art.' (Time Out) 'A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists.' (The Sunday Times)


Paul McCarthy creates sculptures figuring animal/vegetable/human hybrids, Disney-esque installations and slapstick performances in weird evocations of a national subconscious. The psycho-sexual desires and anxieties induced by the media and the built environment of contemporary America emerge in his collisions of plastic prosthetics and simulated body fluids. These have been variously deployed: through live actions, often documented on video, and more recently in outsized and artificial rural environments. Ralph Rugoff surveys McCarthy's installations and sculptures since the early-1970s, while Kristine Stiles, an expert on performance, talks with the artist about his performance work. Giacinto Di Pietrantonio focuses on McCarthy's video/installation, "Pinocchio Pipehouse Householddilemma". The artist has juxtaposed a text by Jean-Paul Sartre with a screenplay from the TV serial "Bonanza", and the final section, the artist's writings, contains notes for performances and videos. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century.

Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist's work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.

Really good book 9. Dezember 2004
Von pip - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was a bit hesitant about buying this book. Sometimes you get unpleasant surprises with books about art and artists (not too good writing, not too good images, not enough of any of those), but luckily this was not the case with this one. It's a good looking book, yes, a very handsome edition, loads of photos, some sketches, and good documentation. Essays are good too, I just wish there were a bit more (what's the word?)you know, more in number and longer... but anyway, a fantastic book to look at. THE DOWNSIDE: I wish there was more writing, and the softbound cover doesn't feel really safe (I'm scared of opening it too hard and separating the cover from the pages), but it's ok if you are careful (it's not like this book will get anywhere near children - the nightmares they'd get!). Oh yeah, and somebody should release a DVD or CD-ROM with the performances! My got, that'd be nice!

PS: If you're thinking of buying this for it's "shock value" you won't be dissapointed. Plenty of scary, gory, creepy stuff...

Must have for contemporary art lovers 26. Januar 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a great book if you like art. I became fascinated with P Mccarthy 11 tears ago. This book features art from the 60's to the 90's. Plus it has a really great interview. I can't get enough on Paul Mccarthy his art has literally made me rethink everything I knew about art. You'll love him or hate him. Either way you'll walk away with something.
