"This enormous book of primary sources contains it all: poems, manifestos, plans, statements, critiques, and of course, interviews, with over a hundred new artists over the first edition....keep it on your coffee table...for the next decade as you parse through whenever you need to be reminded that though the creative life might be lonely, you are not alone."--Publishers Weekly
"Capture[s] the vitality and global tenor of the contemporary art world. . . . Indispensable for artists and art historians alike. . . . Essential."--Choice
