Book of dust : the beginning and the end of time and thereafter by Agnes Denes( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Denes began her compilation of data for this major work in 1972. Using dust as a metaphor and a connecting thread to facts and phenomena, she studies the human mind, our ethical values, standards of living, and survival, presenting haunting images of dust particles from outer space, such as the death of a star, distant and large objects in the universe, as well as earthly dust, including human dust, hallucinogens, poisons, chemicals, and nuclear waste. Book of Dust is a glance at the history and the future of the universe, from its violent birth to the formation of stars, the silent demise of galaxies, and the death of matter. From cosmic dust to human dust, from molecules to intelligence, this work is a cross-section of existence."

Utopias( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a collection of texts that pertain to the notion of "utopia", examining the concept as a recurrent literary and theoretical trope and as it relates to contemporary artistic practice. Succinctly contextualized by Noble as an "impulse or tendency" rather than a place, "utopia" is examined from its earliest explicit articulation in Thomas Moore's 1516 eponymous text through its 19th-century entanglement with revolutionary aspirations in the work of Marx and Engels and its 20th-century negation in George Orwell's 1984. These writings provide the grounds for considerations on the significance of the avant-garde and the relationship between art and politics in its myriad activist and critical guises. Including such suspects as Adorno and Foucault, this book offers a selection of writings on and by such artists as Joseph Beuys, Liam Gillick and Thomas Hirschhorn, while critics are represented with pieces by the likes of Jan Verwoert on the avant-garde gesture and Benjamin H.D. Buchloh's infamous reading of Beuys as a historic self-mythologizer
