Dog / Leon Golub
2004
A la coberta posterior: "DOG is a dog book that tries to be more than a dog book! An intermix of dogs, art and politics! To view dogs as myth, symbol, aesthetic musings and in scenes of casual and/or extreme tension such as the extremities of state violence. Images are jittered and fractured visually and informationally, concrete and irrational. After all, the dog is a great player in our worlds", Leon Golub. -- "Leon Golub’s DOG is a guide to the third Millennium. It is a manual that, in the words of J.G.Ballard, challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be human, and convincingly shows that most of them are delusions. Who are we and why are we here? Akin to John Gray’s Straw Dogs, Golub’s DOG explores what the world and human life could be once humanism is put aside. Golub shows us homeless dogs, bondage dogs, running dogs, atomic dogs, in other words, not domestic dogs at all. And with them there is random movement, collapsed space and entropic fields. Everything seems contingent, things are in permanent transformation and yet forming, if only for a moment, what Golub calls the “necessary and urgent symbolism of our time”, Hans Ulrich Obrist.
