Not in stock. Publication announced for October 2022
A massive artist's book-cum-overview of the revered and subversive queer Canadian collective, exquisitely designed in collaboration with AA Bronson.This 768-page volume stands as the most comprehensive source on the Canadian collective General Idea, the book is arranged in three parts: Performances and Actions, In the Streets and In the Showroom. The first two parts focus on ephemeral, time-based and even disposable works. The third part includes a plate section offering a near-complete visual survey of General Idea's practice. The book itself functions as a kind of edition by the collective, evoking General Idea's preoccupation with redeploying cultural phenomena: here, the museum exhibition catalog.
