"Since their first project together in 1995, Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset have created a much-respected oeuvre, as well as a world entirely of their own. Their amazing architectural sculptures and installations have brought them international renown - for example, there is the multifaceted series Powerless Structures, which now includes over one hundred pieces; the duo's witty permanent installation Prada Marfa in the middle of the Texas desert; and their socio-critical traveling exhibition The Welfare Show." "This Is the First Day of My Life introduces the most important works by this artistic duo, as well as previously unpublished creations. Three fictional texts help to expand the Elmgreen/Dragset universe into new, related fields."--BOOK JACKET.

Based in London and Berlin, Michael Elmgreen (b. 1961, Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (b. 1969, Norway) have worked as a collaborative team since the mid-1990s. In 2006, their Welfare Show at the Serpentine Gallery invited viewers to consider societal power structures, including economic disparity, health care, immigration, travel, prostitution, the police state and the role art plays in society. The duo were awarded Special Mention at the 2009 Venice Biennale for The Collectors, their highly elaborate and widely acclaimed exhibition for the Danish and Nordic Pavilions, while their 2011 work Celebrity: The One and the Many addresses rumour-mongering, life in the public eye, the machinations of the media and its formation of myths. This book thoroughly documents these projects, showing how the artists sculptures and installations reconfigure the familiar with characteristic wit and subversive humour. The book also includes interviews with the duo and with French philosopher Paul Virilio.

Designed and edited by the artists, Self-Portraits has been published to accompany Elmgreen & Dragset's third solo exhibition at Victoria Miro, in autumn 2015. For this body of works, the artist duo has appropriated wall labels describing other artists' work and transformed them into art works in their own right.Whereas such labels are usually printed on throwaway materials and on an unobtrusive scale, Elmgreen & Dragset's labels are over-sized and made in time-honoured materials such as marble, paint on canvas, charcoal on paper and enamel paint on metal.The title of the series - Self-Portraits - signals a personal aspect in which the titles of other artists' work represent significant moments in Elmgreen & Dragset's own lives, leading to questions of what a 'self-portrait' can be today.The publication features a variety of visual and textual materials comprising documentation of their work and points of intersection with the ideas of others.

Elmgreen & Dragset's constructed environments have been celebrated all over the world for their mischievous, cerebral, and accessible nature. This is the first comprehensive presentation of the duo's work, from their early performative pieces in the late 1990s to their most recent public projects Drawing from disciplines as divergent as institutional critique, social politics, performance, design, and architecture, Elmgreen & Dragset's work reconfigure the familiar with characteristic and subversive wit. Their sculptures and installations, also known as 'Powerless Structures', have redefined what it means to experience art - the cover features their work Van Gogh's Ear, a sculpture in the form of a swimming pool, which is located on Fifth Avenue in New York at the entrance to the Rockefeller Center. This book includes all of their most significant projects, from the transformation of New York's Bohen Foundation into a subway station in 2004, to the siting of a fake Prada boutique in the Texan desert in 2005, and the installation of the statue of a child on a rocking horse on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square in 2012. Elmgreen & Dragset is the latest addition to the acclaimed Phaidon Contemporary Artists Series.

33 Artists in 3 Acts

Is being an artist a radical form of entrepreneurship or a vocational calling like the priesthood? Is it an extension of philosophy or an offshoot of entertainment? In three richly interlinked but distinct 'acts' - Politics, Kinship and Craft - Sarah Thornton compares and contrasts answers to the simple but profound question: what is an artist? 33 Artists in 3 Acts draws on hundreds of personal encounters with the world's most important artists, to ask what it means to be making artworks in different parts of the world today. With Thornton as expert guide and trusted insider, we have unprecedented access to the lives of the artists, from late-night Skype chats with Ai Weiwei to taxi rides with Maurizio Cattelan on the way to and from the show that announces his death. We join Thornton as she rummages through artists' studios, homes and solo shows, inquiring about everything from their bank accounts to their bedrooms. The result is a series of cinematic experiences, which juxtapose artists in thought-provoking ways, and build up narratives that end with epiphanies. 33 Artists in 3 Acts is a generational touchstone, a powerful triptych and gripping anti-monograph about truth, integrity, credibility and recognition. Essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary art, this masterful act of storytelling will also delight any reader seeking to understand creative lives.

Something happened in the 1990s; a group of people who were perceived as radical and unmentionable were transformed into a group of people who deserved human rights, and, if you looked close enough, were normal, just like everybody else (John DOCOEmilio (2002). Had a post-gay era (Ghaziani, 2011) begun? And if so, how might this impact on the meaning of sexual identity and a political movement steeped in identity politics? Have the LGBT youth of today been duped into conformity because..."

Westergaard was born on 13 July 1935 in the village of D strup, in the Himmerland area of Jutland. He grew up in a conservative Christian (Inner Mission) environment in Himmerland, going...
