The Studio is one of a series documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art. With the emergence of conceptual art in the mid-1960s, the traditional notion of the studio became at least partly obsolete. Other sites emerged for the generation of art, leading to the idea of "post-studio practice." But the studio never went away; it was continually reinvented in response to new realities. This collection, expanding on current critical interest in issues of production and situation, looks at the evolution of studio - and 'post-studio' - practice over the last half century. In recent decades many artists have turned their studios into offices from which they organize a multiplicity of operations and interactions. Others use the studio as a quasi-exhibition space, or work on a laptop computer - mobile, flexible, and ready to follow the next commission.Among the topics surveyed here are the changing portrayal and experience of the artist's role since 1960; the diversity of current studio and post-studio practice; the critical strategies of artists who have used the studio situation as the subject or point of origin for their work; the insights to be gained from archival studio projects; and the expanded field of production that arises from responding to new conditions in the world outside the studio. The essays and artists' statements in this volume explore these questions with a focus on examining the studio's transition from a workshop for physical production to a space with potential for multiple forms of creation and participation.Writers and artists surveyed include: Vito Acconci, Alexander Alberro, Jennifer Allen, Svetlana Alpers, Edgar Arceneaux, Michael Auping, Francis Bacon, Albrecht Barthel, Mary Bergstein, Iwona Blazwick, Louise Bourgeois, Constantin Brancusi, Daniel Buren, Sarah Burns, Aimee Chang, Judy Chicago, Jane Collings, Lynne Cooke, Barbara Dawson, Jeffrey Deitch, Manthia Diawara, Brian Dillon, Marcel Duchamp, Briony Fer, Elena Filipovic, Jori Finkel, Alberto Giacometti, Jack Goldstein, Ulrike Groos, Carles Guerra, Elizabeth Harney, Herzog & de Meuron, Carsten Holler, Amelia Jones, Caitlin Jones, Caroline A.

Review:

"The great thing about this book is that - after having read it - I still don't know if artist's studios are physical places or just some kind of mental state. With this anthology, Hoffman shows us that the studio - just like our head - is simply a place where thoughts can run in circles." - Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director, Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Milan. "A fixture of popular accountants and at the same time of serious interest to the artists, the artist's studio has been largely ignored by critics and historians, except to declare it dead. Jens Hoffman, with a characteristically open mind, has gathered a wide-ranging body of texts that show us different ways that artists occupy their studios, and a few strong attempts to theorize its current state." - Katy Siegel, Associate Professor of Art History, Hunter College, CUNY; editor in chief, Art Journal.
