Item description for Art From the UK: Angela Bulloch, Willie Doherty, Tracey Emin, Douglas Gordon, Mona Hatoum, Abigail Lane, Sarah Lucas, Sam Taylor-Wood, Rachel Whitread by Michael Archer Neal Brown...
Featuring interviews with and artwork by such hot young British artists as Mona Hatoum, Sam Taylor-Wood, Rachel Whiteread, Willie Doherty, Tracey Emin, Douglas Gordon, Abigail Lane, Angela Bulloch, and Sarah Lucas, Art from the UK documents an exhibition at the Goetz Collection in Munich. The Goetz Collection is one of the most important collections devoted solely to contemporary art, and is housed in its own small private museum, designed by renowned Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. The works presented here exemplify the Goetz Collection's dedication to art that is innovative and challenging--from Mona Hatoum's surprising and complex mixture of media, to Rachel Whiteread's inverted spaces, to Sam Taylor-Wood's explorations of the erotic entanglements of people in closed spaces. In addition, the interviews presented in Art from the UK offer a tremendous insight into the changing creative processes and aesthetic philosophies of the new wave of contemporary artists.

a credible book to credit great artwork Apr 8, 2001
I found this book ot be an excellent asset to my collection of modern british art. I thought that the large amount of content was covered thouroghly, but not drawn out to get stale(just like the artwork itself, discussed). This is a very important book because it recaps all of what is happening with the yBa movement in the artworld. This book is for anyone who wants to be on top of the world of modern art.
