'The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about.' (Artforum) 'The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art.' (Time Out) 'A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists.' (The Sunday Times)

Table of contents
Interview - Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon concentrates on Marclay's collaborations with musicians and his performance work * Survey - Art historian and critic Jennifer Gonzalez examines Marclay's output, primarily focusing on his work as a visual artist * Focus - Art critic and curator Matthew Higgs looks closely at the structure and content of the immensely complex, highly enjoyable Video Quartet (2002) * Artist's Choice The artist has selected The Prose of the Trans-Siberian and of Little Jehanne of France (1913), originally a fold-out poster poem by Swiss writer Blaise Cendrars (1887-1961), who, like the artist, worked across various disciplines. * Artist's Writings include 'Interview Cut-up', a spliced interview combining key conversations that the artist has published since 1991 specially created with the artist for this volume, and Extended Play (1989), a succinct statement on music-as-sculpture * Chronology and Bibliography
