About this title


In a daring act of historical reconstruction, the curator Germano Celant, in dialogue with Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaas, has recreated Harald Szeemann’s epochal Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form, held at the Bern Kunsthalle in 1969, and installed by Celant at the magnificent Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice in June–November 2013. Szeemann’s show was a dialogue with the Bern Kunsthalle, and Celant has reprised its spirit by placing the works in dialogue with the Ca’ Corner della Regina--a very different building, in its Venetian grandeur, to the Kunsthalle. This publication is divided into three parts: the first reproduces photo documentation of the original exhibit, the second compiles essays and interviews on Celant’s project and the third includes the installation views of the show in Venice. The book is completed by a "Register" of works included in both shows.


My art book of the year. (Julia Peyton-Jones The Art Newspaper)

Titled 'When Attitudes Become Form: Bern 1969/Venice 2013,' that show impressed crowds at last summer's Venice Biennale with its heady contrasts of 1960s art and 18th-century architecture (not to mention its meticulous fidelity, where possible, to the original installation). The book is just as exacting, with archival photographs of the Bern show and a detailed register of all its artworks. (Karen Rosenberg The New York Times)
