"During an entire Real Madrid vs. Villareal match before 80,000 fans at the Santiago Berabeu stadium, 17 movie cameras under the direction of acclaimed cinematographer Darius Khondji were set around the playing field focusing solely on Zidane.

Douglas Gordon's The vanity of allegory( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'étiquette de l'emballage plastique porte: "Douglas Gordon's The vanity of allegory" is a folly, a playful collage of an exhibition conceived by the artist for the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. As a veiled self-portrait of the artist, the show focuses on the intersection between "vanitas", as a meditation on the ephemeral nature of life, and self-representation, as an act of vanity and a play to remain immortal. Bringing together a diverse selection of art objects and films, from Perugino's "San Sebastian" to Walt Disney's "Peter Pan", and from Jeff Koon's "Louis XIV" to Luchino Visconti's "The Damned", Gordon provides tantalizing clues to his own sources of inspiration. This catalogue contains a booklet with a critical essay by exhibition curator Nancy Spector and an illustrated postcard of each object in the show, with a text explaining Gordon's rationale for its inclusion."

Punishment exercise in gothic by Douglas Gordon( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in Undetermined and English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this artist's book Douglas Gordon has self-reflectively processed his conceptual approach, which is always aimed at the viewer as an artistic subject. The always identical hard shot of his own face after a 'demolished night' - inclusive of a laceration - is confronted with a minimalist prose. It dives into the depth of this wounded face/this seemingly wounded psyche, sometimes the drugs are mentioned, then the feelings, the jokes ... the combinations are left to chance."
