Synopsis: 300 Tons and Previous Projects features more than 80 of Santiago Sierra's works from 1989 to 2004, several of which are published here for the first time. Sierra's performances and installations are minimalist, task-oriented and incorporate numerical aspects-- Person Paid to Have 30 cm Line Tattooed on Them,, Ten People Paid to Masturbate, Eight Combinations for a Door with Two Leaves. The main focus of this book, with 220 black and white images throughout, is 300 Tons, the work Sierra created in 2004 for the Kunsthaus Bregenz Museum. Weights that added up to nearly 300 tons were used to tax the structural capacity of the Kunsthaus to its limit; only a restricted number of visitors were admitted at any given time. With this project, Sierra for the first time extends his artistic strategy to the entire structure of a building.

PLEASE NOTE FOR SHIPMENTS TO DESTINATIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES: Because we ship by trackable means (UPS to Canada, Global Express Mail through the U.S. Postal Service to all other countries) and because the vast majority of our books far exceed the 2.2-pound reference weight used in the "Shipping Rates" chart, shipping to addresses outside the United States can be extremely expensive. (As examples, the postage cost for a 6-pound parcel is $41.75 to Great Britain, $34.95 to France and $41.20 to Germany.) We will always contact you with the exact shipping charge before sending your international order so you may decide whether to confirm or cancel the order. FOR SHIPMENTS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES: We ship by United Parcel Service (which does not deliver to post office boxes) at a charge of $10.00 for the first book and $3.00 for each additional book on the same order. We will provide you with the UPS tracking number for your order. Expedited shipping (UPS Next-Day or Second-Day Air) is available to most addresses in the continental United States. The cost of these services is dependent on the weight of the shipment, but we will not exceed the charge of $15.00 for the first book and $9.00 for each additional book without prior confirmation from you. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required.
