416 pages and nearly eight pounds of Kabakovs, one of my favorites for their creativity and spark and humor. Text in German and English, with many, many color plates and a bibliography, chronology, and exhibition list. This mammoth book actually served as the catalogue for an exhibition ("Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: The Architectural Projects") held September-November 2004 at the Kunsthalle Bielefeld, and later in 2005 at the Kunsthaus Zug and the Albion London. In three sections: The Utopian City (which includes realized and unrealized projects, including On the Roof and The Boat of My Life), Unrealized Projects, including several of the Kabakov monuments, and Monument to a Lost Civilization, which in turn is divided into Communist Ideology and Propaganda, The Bureaucratic World, Communal Life (including The Communal Kitchen, a masterpiece), The Hospital and Scientific Research, Museum and Educational Zone, The World of Memories (including The Man Who Never Threw Anything Away), and Childhood Monuments. In Fine condition in hardcover binding without dust jacket as issued with slight bump to lower corner.

Price = 45.00 USD
