Dorothy Iannone: This Sweetness Outside of Time published by Kerber:
This book offers an overview of the complete works of Dorothy Iannone, as well as providing for the first time a detailed introduction to the abstract early works of the 1960s. The essays are dedicated to Iannone’s main themes, such as the relationship between text and image, the fight against censorship, and the performative forms of speaking, singing and writing. An interview conducted by Maurizio Cattelan with the artist and various statements by companions and friends as well as a richly illustrated biography round out the catalogue.
