Item description for Going Staying by Volker Adolphs...
Are you staying or are you going? The question encapsulates a range of physical actions, intellectual concerns and emotional wranglings--whether over a late-night decision to remain at a party or a tortuous choice to end a love affair. Contemporary art--through the newer, time-based media of video, performance and installation, and through the novel use of traditional media, is well equipped to deal with these vicissitudes. This volume is comprised of works by 36 artists, from the 1960s to the present, who have explored this rich territory, including Marina Abramovi?/Ulay, Joseph Beuys, Willie Doherty, Olafur Eliasson, Mona Hatoum, William Kentridge, Sigalit Landau, Richard Long, Bruce Nauman, Tony Oursler, Pipilotti Rist, Bill Viola, Rachel Whiteread and Andrea Zittel. Their works have a sense of transition and liminal space: Richard Long in the act of walking, for example, or Andrea Zittel's creation of systems for mobile living.
