Description - Thinking in Thin Air: Anthology of a Decade: Engadin Art Talks by Cristina Bechtler
A diverse anthology of work from the fabled Engadin Art Talks, with Eileen Myles, Thomas Hirschhorn and many more. E.A.T./Engadin Art Talks, the forum in Zuoz in the crystalline winter-wonderland of the Swiss Alps, takes place at the end of January each year and has become famous as a meeting point for thought leaders and disruptive minds. The event is curated by Daniel Baumann, director of the Kunsthalle in Zurich, Bice Curiger, artistic director of the Vincent van Gogh Museum in Arles, Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, and Philip Ursprung, a history of art and architecture professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. Thinking in Thin Air makes it possible to experience the ideas of the artists, architects, and scientists who gather every winter to exchange thoughts of social-political relevance and visions of the future of art. On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of Engadin Art Talks, this book provides an insight into the special atmosphere of this event. Designed like a pinboard, it can be read from any direction. It presents works by the participants, and offers a fascinating insight into the thinking and practice of some of the most important artists of our time in the form of essays, sketches, and works of art.
