Dan Graham's Rock My Religion (1982--1984) is a video essay populated by punk and rock performers (Patti Smith, Jim Morrison, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Eddie Cochran) and historical figures (including Ann Lee, founder of the Shakers). It represented a coming together of narrative voice-overs, singing and shouting voices, and jarring sounds and overlaid texts that proposed a historical genealogy of rock music and an ambitious thesis about the origins of North America's popular culture. Because of its passionate embrace of underground music, its low-fi aesthetics, interest in politics, and liberal approach to historiography, the video has become a landmark work in the history of contemporary moving image and art; but it has remained, possibly for the same reasons, one of Graham's least written about works--underappreciated and possibly misunderstood by the critics who otherwise celebrate him. This illustrated study of Graham's groundbreaking work fills that critical gap. Kodwo Eshun examines Rock My Religion not only in terms of contemporary art and Graham's wider body of work but also as part of the broader culture of the time. He explores the relationship between Graham and New York's underground music scene of the 1980s, connecting the artistic methods of the No Wave bands--especially their group dynamics and relationship to the audience--and Rock My Religion's treatment of working class identity and culture.

As admired for his writing as for his work in art, photography and architecture, Dan Graham was one of the first contemporary artists to embrace Punk, Postpunk and No Wave, becoming a figurehead for those movements, and an early supporter of (and friend to) Glenn Branca and Sonic Youth among many others. "Rock/Music Writings" collects 13 of Graham's most influential writings, on bands ranging from The Kinks to Bow Wow Wow, first published in art journals such as "Real Life," "Open Letter" and "ZG" between 1968 and 1988, and in the now rare volume "Rock My Religion." It includes such landmark essays as "Punk as Propaganda," which explicates the self-packaging and media critique of The Ramones, Devo, the Sex Pistols, the Desperate Bicycles and others; "Rock My Religion," in which Graham traces themes of ecstatic reverie in rock performance (with a focus on Patti Smith), through a beautiful composite of quotation, commentary and photography; and "New Wave Rock and the Feminine," which discusses the onstage personae of Lydia Lunch, Debbie Harry and Siouxsie Sioux, and the gender politics of all-female groups such as The Slits, The Raincoats, Bush Tetras and others. Throughout "Rock/Music Writings," Graham's appraisals are clear-eyed, sophisticated and poetically constructed, a genre of their own within artists' writings.

Dan Graham began directing the John Daniels Gallery (New York) in 1964, where he put on Sol LeWitt's first one-man show. In the group shows he organised he exhibited the works of Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, and Robert Smithson.Like these artists, Graham considered himself a writer-artist. His earliest work dealt with the magazine page, and one of his seminal early works was a series of magazine-style photographs with text, Homes for America (1966-1967).Focusing on cultural phenomena, and incorporating photography, video, performance, glass and mirror structures, Dan Graham's practice has become a key part of the Conceptual art canon.This volume brings together texts written on various artists he admires, as well as interviews collected since the 1990s, most notably on his large-scale installations incorporating mirrors - a culmination of his long examination of the psychological relationship between people and architecture.This book is part of the Positions series, co-published with Les presses du réel and ECU Press, Vancouver.

The present renewal of garden art demands a new approach to garden aesthetics. This book considers exceptional creations around the world and proposes new forms of garden experience. Using a variety of critical perspectives, the authors demonstrate a renewal of garden design and new directions for garden aesthetics, analyzing projects by Fernando Chacel (Brazil), Andy Goldsworthy (Great Britain), Charles Jencks (Great Britain), Patricia Johanson (U.S.), Dieter Kienast (Switzerland), Bernard Lassus (France), and Mohammed Shaheer (India). The first half of the volume begins with an argument for a return to John Dewey's focus on "Art as Experience," while the second half concludes with a debate on the respective roles of cognition and the senses, and of science and the visual arts.
