Leon GolubISBN: 2915359083;
Dog is an intermix of dogs, art, and politics that views dogs as myth, symbol, aesthetic musings, and in scenes of casual and/or extreme tensions. Leon Golub chose visuals that are jittered and visually and informationally fractured, concrete and irrational. According to critic J. G. Ballard, this final book in Golub's career, since his recent death, "challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be human, and convincingly shows that most of them are delusions." Dog explores what the world and human life could be once humanism is put aside--and all through images of dogs: homeless dogs, bondage dogs, running dogs, atomic dogs, and assorted canine-themed writings. A small, compact, and thought-provoking manual. Afterword by Hans-Ulrich Obrist. Paperback, 5.5 x 8.75 in./96 pgs / Illustrated throughout.
