EA. Erschienen zur Ausstellung Houston, New York u. a. O. Texte engl. - «This first comprehensive publication on the influential contemporary artist focuses on the experimental nature of Andrea Zittel s signature objects, inhabitable sculptures, and other projects. In her work as an artist, Zittel investigates domestic and urban life in Western societies. Exploring the various aspects of living, the artist designs her own household settings to serve as a test case for her experimental living structures. Her work has provoked debates about the changed meaning of domestic and collective space and the possibilities for new adaptations to urban conditions today. Richly illustrated, Andrea Zittel: Critical Space includes nearly two hundred reproductions of Zittel s works of art, many of which are published here for the first time. The book includes over one hundred sculptures and drawings, documentation of early work, and recent site-specific work in the Mojave Desert of California. With essays that touch upon urbanism, architecture, design and consumer culture, this catalog offers an extensive analysis of Zittel s contribution to contemporary trends in art and architecture.» «Andrea Zittel (born 1965) is an American artist based in Joshua Tree, CA whose practice encompasses spaces, objects and modes of living in an ongoing investigation that explores the questions “How to live?” and “What gives life meaning?”» (Wikipedia).
