Pause: 21 scenes concerning the silence of art in ruins

Weinmayr, Eva (2010) Pause: 21 scenes concerning the silence of art in ruins. Occasional Papers, London. ISBN 9780956260543

Type of Research: Book
Creators: Weinmayr, Eva

Why did Art in Ruins, a once prominent art collective, suddenly fall off the art world map? Did they run out of ideas, move on to other territories or simply withdraw in disgust? During brief lulls in their frenetic peregrinations around the glittering international art circuit, a loose group of artists, curators, critics and other art professionals discuss the mysterious disappearance of Art in Ruins, maintaining a sober tone of inquiry even as they encounter herds of bison, anomalous Richard Serra walls and security personnel steeped in art theory. Using actual dialogue from interviews with art professionals who knew Art in Ruins, Eva Weinmayr constructs a hypothetical play as an anti-documentary or anti-biography.
