Synopsis

Krzysztof Wodiczko, an avante-garde artist, is perhaps best known for the politically charged images he has projected onto buildings and monuments from New York to Warsaw - images of rockets projected onto triumphal arches, the image of handcuffed wrists projected onto a courthouse facade, images of homeless people in bandages and wheelchairs projected onto statues in a park from which they had been evicted. In projects such as the "Homeless Vehicle", which he designed through discussions with homeless people, Wodiczko has helped to make public space a place where marginalized people can speak, establish their presence and assert their rights. This book collects Wodiczko's own writings on his projects. He has stated that his principal artistic concern is the displacement of traditional notions of community and identity in the face of rapidly expanding technologies and cultural miscommunication. In these writings he addresses such issues as urbanism, homelessness, immigration, alienation and the plight of refugees. Fusing wit and political insight, he offers the artistic means to help heal the damages of uprootedness and other contemporary troubles.

Der Verlag über das Buch

The first collection of writings by this important artist.
Krzysztof: "Now we have the option of combining the part for bottles and cans with the sleeping part below. What [Victor] is saying is that it doesn’t have to be the entire length of the body because you can sleep with legs bent. So that means it could be shorter, and then all the storage area could be above and closed with a plastic seal."

Oscar: "Right, not only is there protection from the wind, but it’s theft-proof . . . you’ve got to think about when you’re underneath, and somebody attacks you." --Conversations about a Project for a Homeless Vehicle

Critical Vehicles Writings, Projects, Interviews Krzysztof Wodiczko

Krzysztof Wodiczko, one of the most original avant-garde artists of our time, is perhaps best known for the politically charged images he has projected onto buildings and monuments from New York to Warsaw--images of rockets projected onto triumphal arches, the image of handcuffed wrists projected onto a courthouse facade, images of homeless people in bandages and wheelchairs projected onto statues in a park from which they had been evicted. In projects such as the "Homeless Vehicle," which he designed through discussions with homeless people, Wodiczko has helped to make public space a place where marginalized people can speak, establish their presence, and assert their rights.

Critical Vehicles is the first book in English to collect Wodiczko’s own writings on his projects. Wodiczko has stated that his principal artistic concern is the displacement of traditional notions of community and identity in the face of rapidly expanding technologies and cultural miscommunication. In these writings he addresses such issues as urbanism, homelessness, immigration, alienation, and the plight of refugees. Fusing wit and sophisticated political insight, he offers the artistic means to help heal the damages of uprootedness and other contemporary troubles.

In 1998, Krzysztof Wodiczko was awarded the Hiroshima Prize for his contribution as an artist to world peace.

"Crititical Vehicles" by Wodiczko is an excellent book to become familiar with this very exciting polish artist, now living in New York. Wodiczko is an interesting artist that crosses several catagories; sculpture, multimedia, industrial design, video, projection, performance art, and funtional devices. This book covers Wodiczko's work from the early start of his career and up to late nineties. It explaines in depht what the artist are trying to achieve, why he his doing it, and with which methodes. Wodiczko is a thinker and a well-reflected man. In this book not just will the reader have the pleasure of seeing Wodiczko's art, and the details of each project, but most of all, the reader gets to know Wodiczko's reflections and critical thoughts of our soceity today. I found his arguments refreshing, thought provoking and pleasurably challenging.
