Descripción

312pp, profusely illustrated in color. Text in English. Designed by Jose Luis Lugo and Nova Era. Cristina de Middel's "Party" is a charming artist's book that takes the form of the ubiquitous sixties staple "Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung" - or as it was most commonly known here in the West, "The Little Red Book". The follow-up to the Spanish-born, London-based de Middel's highly received "The Afronauts", it removes most of Mao's didactic text leaving provocatively-altered phrases interspersed with hundreds of doubled-sided leaves reproducing her images of contemporary China. The resultant frisson between the original's altered texts and photographs of a new, Capitalist-embracing homeland would definitely not have found favor during the Cultural Revolution. A brand new, pristine example of 2013 first edition limited to one thousand, seven hundred and fifteen unnumbered copies additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "Christina De Middel" in black ink across the front free endpaper still in the publisher's unprinted clear plastic pouch.

Sinopsis:

Spanish-born, London-based photographer and conceptual artist Cristina de Middel (born 1975) follows the colossal success of her 2012 volume The Afronauts--a self-publishing phenomenon that was voted best photo book of that year by Photo-eye--with Party, a portrait of present-day China modeled on Mao Tsetong's Red Book. De Middel uses the structure of Mao's book (as well as its iconic design) to create a photo-narrative interspersed with adapted quotations from Mao. As she describes it: "I decided to adapt this historic political statement by censoring and hiding the parts of the text that are no longer in force and highlighting some other redesigned sentences that, for me, form a more accurate portrait of the People's Republic of China in the twenty-first century." Party is published in a limited edition of 750 copies and is certain to quickly become a photo-book classic.
