Publisher Note

Krzysztof Wodiczko is the first complete collection of the politically charged installations and projects of internationally renowned artist Krzysztof Wodiczko.

Wodiczko is best known for his large-scale slide and video projections on buildings and monuments. Since the 1980s, he has been transforming the facades of official buildings and historical monuments into temporary spaces for critical reflection and public protest.

Krzysztof Wodiczko covers 40 years of the artist’s extensive and often controversial body of work, which uses contemporary technologies to form a commentary on politics, ethics, social responsibility and the urban experience. The book comprises a collection of writing by some of the most critically acclaimed art historians, cultural theorists and commentators working today, along with published and unpublished texts by the artist. Richly illustrated, the book includes a diverse selection of images, ranging from digital montages and preliminary visualisations to sketches and photographs.
