Chirs Burden forever earned his place in art history and pop consciousness when he was shot in the arm in 1971, under his own direction, in the seminal performance piece "Shoot". Still, that's probably the last thing the artist wants to talk about, given that over the past four decades he has put out an evolving body of work in a wide range of media.

This comprehensive overview, the first to appear in almost a decade, examines an artistic career, that now must be viewed as one of the most fascinating in the history of contemporary art. From his highly controversial and seminal performance works of the early 1970s, to his complex, imaginative installations and monumental sculptures, the art of Chris Burden uniquely informs as well as incorporates the major artistic undercurrents of the last three decades. Not only has the artist made a major contribution to the history of body-related performance art, but the artist's fascination with systems of power, societal organization, architectural structure and technological systems, have resulted in an extraordinary body of sculptural objects and environmental installations over the last 35 years. In compiling this publication the artist has worked closely with curator and long time associate Fred Hoffman, taking this opportunity to re-examine his work afresh and revealing images that are unpublished or rarely seen.

great!

I actually bought this book for myself, because my dad and brother had both bought it and I couldn't stand not having my own copy to spend loads of time mulling over. This book is a great retrospective book, full of pieces and images of pieces you may not even know, shedding new light on an already amazing artist...It also has some really great critical essays.. enjoy...

This is am amazing book covering the entire career of Chris Burden. The text is well written and the photot's are amazing. Many of the photo's have never been published before. A must buy

Whether you're into art or not, this is an amazingly inspiring book (in a creepy way) to read. I actually find these performances quite humorous, but who takes art seriously anyway?
