  • The Politics of Contemporary Art Biennialsby Panos Kompatsiaris

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Contemporary art biennials are sites of prestige, innovation and experimentation, where the category of art is meant to be in perpetual motion, rearranged and redefined, opening itself to the world and its contradictions.

    Encounter Books 2005; US$ 17.99

    For the past 25 years, Henry Rollins has photographed the most desolate and inhospitable corners of the Earth, and his powerful vision has been harnessed in this photographic essay.
