Item description for Atelier van Lieshout by Jennifer Allen, Aaron Betsky, Rudi Laermans & Wouter Vanstiphout...

When Joep van Lieshout (b. 1963) founded the art and architecture studio that bears his name, he set in motion what has been described as "a new Dutch architectural style dirty, delicious and direct." Now Atelier Van Lieshout is 10, and the first major monograph devoted to it, A Manual (1997), has been sold out for years. This new overview brings readers into AVL's contrarian applied art via luxuriously appointed "mobile homes," autonomous communes and surreal art projects, with equal time given to AVL-Ville (2001), a "free state" in Rotterdam's port, complete with its own flag, its own constitution and its own currency, and the revealing minutia of AVL's portfolio, from furniture to the "Bar Rectum," a perverse take on the Oscar-Meyer Weiner Mobile. The idea of art that can be used for a self-sufficient and independent lifestyle hits a uniquely high point in AVL-Ville, a culmination of all the work AVL has done before. And it lives on: After a successful and tumultuous year of work, AVL has recently located its first AVL-Ville export product in Park Middelheim in Antwerp: the AVL Franchise Unit. This richly illustrated survey tracks AVL's serious and often provocative portfolio through a crucial period in its growth and development.

atelier van lieshout  Jan 2, 2008
as i am an admirer of atelier van lieshout, the book is very interesting, amazing - you can read and look in it, whenever you have a couple of minutes, re-read it, re-look at it, there is always something new you can explore
Atelier Van Lieshout, A Manual  Apr 23, 2004
Great artist, great book. Nice format. It actually includes a manual and plans to build fiberglass structures according to Joep Van Lieshout's desings. You also get a detailed step-by-step guide to pickle pork meat. His conception of art, installation, color and life are all equally interesting. Get it if you can.
fantastical  Aug 3, 2000
brilliant vision. impact realization. one doesn't know whether it is a joke or to take it all dead seriously. the power lies in this double edge.
Production Glossary  Jul 18, 2000
(horizontal format paperback) A nice range of photographs and essays describe the activities and products of Lieshout and his camp. Includes photographs, plans, and do it yourself type instruction for sexy camper units, toilet fixtures, kitchen furnishings, skinning and perserving pork, and weapons- BRING ON THE APOCALYPSE!
