This catalogue for the exhibition Kader Attia: Sacrifice and Harmony brings together a wealth of materials, images, and texts on the new works of the French artist.
In addition to transcriptions of various interviews from the large video installation Reason’s Oxymorons, which are being published for the first time, the book also contains essays on his concepts of ‘repair’ as well as a talk on the topic by the artist.
Both the exhibition and this catalogue deal in great depth with historical and current forms of sacrifice with reference to the ‘politics of fear’ that dominates our social situation today.
Published on occasion of the exhibition Kader Attia: Sacrifice and Harmony April 16 – August 14, 2016, MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main.
