Based in London and Berlin, Michael Elmgreen (b. 1961, Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (b. 1969, Norway) have worked as a collaborative team since the mid-1990s. In 2006, their Welfare Show at the Serpentine Gallery invited viewers to consider societal power structures, including economic disparity, health care, immigration, travel, prostitution, the police state and the role art plays in society. The duo were awarded Special Mention at the 2009 Venice Biennale for The Collectors, their highly elaborate and widely acclaimed exhibition for the Danish and Nordic Pavilions, while their 2011 work "Celebrity: The One and the Many" addresses rumour-mongering, life in the public eye, the machinations of the media and its formation of myths. This book thoroughly documents these projects, showing how the artists' sculptures and installations reconfigure the familiar with characteristic wit and subversive humour. The book also includes interviews with the duo and with French philosopher Paul Virilio.
Winner of the 2012 Michael L. Printz and William C. Morris Awards, this poignant and hilarious story of loss and redemption "explores the process of grief, second chances, and even the meaning of life" ("Kirkus Reviews"). The author includes wide-ranging examples of the rat's appearance: in literature - The Pied Piper, Beatrix Potter stories, The Wind in the Willows; in culture - Victorian rat-and-dog baiting pits, its popularity as a pet, even the subject of a '70s pop song; folklore - it was a good luck symbol in ancient Rome, symbol of cunning in Chinese mythology; and psychoanalysis - Freud's Rat Man, for example. The book also seeks to answer two problems raised by the complexity of human attitudes to the rat. The first concerns how it was that the rat came to be seen not just as verminous, but also as being particularly despised for being Art/Fashion in the 21st Century download PDF so - more so, in fact, than other parasitic animals. The second concerns the manner in which human attitudes to the rat can be so contradictory, when admiration for its abilities are set against this idea of hatred. The rat can be found at the heart of human preoccupations with hygiene, sexuality and appetite, and exists as a perverse totem for the worst excesses of human behaviour. In Rat, Jonathan Burt provides a fascinating account of this animal in history, myth and culture.
