Abramovic's remarkable career as one of her generation's most challenging performance artists, has paved the way for younger artists who are interested in this complex and often radical art form. Lately Abramovic has turned her attention to exploring ways to encapsulate the art form after the performance is physically completed. This project explores the diversity of contemporary performance art through the works of exciting new artists from around the world. Their use of storytelling, virtual worlds, audience participation, sound, and the body are documented in this illustrated volume. An interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist with Abramovic outlines the challenges and goals of her new project while essays by leading curators in the field of performance art explore methods for preserving this unique art form, and brief profiles of each of the artists introduce readers to a new generation of challenging and innovative performance artists.

Product Description The Art of Doing Nothing Simple Ways to Make Time for Yourself A culture of overachievers, we make things happen--and happen fast. While rushing along, though, the days seem to get shorter and shorter. If only time would hold still, just a little bit, to let us savor life's simplest moments. . . . The Art of Doing Nothing will help to ease these beat-the-clock jitters. The stress-reducing techniques described here require no time, no skill, no commitment. A practical guide to rest and relaxation, it ushers us into a world where "being" is more compelling than "doing." Beautifully illustrated with Erica Lennard's photographs, The Art of Doing Nothing gives us permission to celebrate idleness in all its mesmerizing forms. Véronique Vienne's delightfully informative essays on the art of breathing, meditating, bathing, listening, waiting, and more offer useful tips on such skills as how to whistle, stay in the moment, take a nap, cure a cold, or watch the sun set over the horizon. Without further ado--and without feeling guilty--we learn to unwind, exhale, and, yes, stop and smell the roses. Like Ira Gershwin, you will be delighted to discover that you've got plenty of nothin', and that nothin's plenty for you. See all Editorial Reviews

His characters are so bizzare, and the stories normal yet disturbing. A family with children named Faith, Hope, Charity, and Adolph...a young boy with a penchant for writing about his activities with random men in public restrooms...David Sedaris is perverse, funny, and heartwarming all at once.

  • A great, fun, light hearted, quick read! Good for plenty of laughs!

The DVD documentary about Farmer John is fascinating too! Community-supported agriculture is an increasingly popular farm-marketing system where subscribers buy a portion of the harvest before the growing season begins and receive weekly boxes of diverse vegetables that vary throughout the season. Angelic Organics is one of the largest farms of this kind in the country, serving 1,200 shareholders in the Chicago area, and Peterson's cookbook is an outgrowth of the chatty, idiosyncratic newsletters he's been sending to his members every week since 1993. The book is arranged seasonally by crop, offering recipes and information on storing and preserving the exotic or misunderstood vegetables like sunchokes, rutabagas and kohlrabi. Familiar staples like corn, tomatoes and spinach are also represented, but jazzed up with an eclectic international pantry of condiments and spices. Interspersed with the cooking discussions are philosophical essays on biodynamic agriculture by and about the movement's founder, Rudolf Steiner. While the relevance of some sidebars is questionable"cooking tips from the farm cook, and excerpts from farm newsletters on weather, harvest records and equipment heartaches"they do help readers vicariously experience life on this unique farm in this farm kitchen bible presented with missionary zeal.

I really want to read this book by activist and social critic Naomi Wolf who explains in very simple language how are democracy is in jeopardy at this very moment. And not from an external threat, but from what the "forefathers" of the U.S. talked about in the Declaration of Independence. A truly patriotic book for those who want to make sure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not compromised and remain the basic tenets of our democracy.

Essays seem to be the medium of choice in which hapas tend to describe their hapa-experiences eloquently. I enjoy reading them because it's rare that I actually take time out for myself to truly reflect on my unique heritage, and interesting to see what I agree/don't agree with as well as just reading about other experiences.
