Publisher's Synopsis

The publication by Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson on the occasion of the exhibition at the Icelandic pavilion at Venice Biennale 2011 is conceived as a first comprehensive overview / in depth analysis of more than ten years of their artistic practice-leading up to their most current works.

Four essays by internationally renowned writers approach Castro/Ólafsson's work from different angles, while a conversation with the exhibition curator, Ellen Blumenstein, meanders through the book, takes up the artists own perspective on their work, and focuses on the production of the new projects while digging into recent social and political developments in Iceland.

Maurizio Lazzarato, Susanne Leeb, Halldór Björn Runólfsson, Simon Sheikh
Conversation with the artists by Ellen Blumenstein
