Los Carpinteros from the Author: Gudrun Ankele. This monograph is a comprehensive survey of Los Carpinteros' work since 2003, their most critically acclaimed period. Since their first collaborations, which focused on the traditions of craftsmanship and the colonial architecture of Cuba, as well as the subversion of the craftsman and the artist, Los Carpinteros' installations, sculptures and watercolour paintings have explored the political potential of art. In their more recent works, they transform simple, everyday objects (such as beds, loudspeakers and coffee machines) in dreamlike and associative ways, cracking open the ambiguities of reality and producing moments of absurdity and humour.

Less Than One from the Author: Joseph Brodsky. Essayist and poet Joseph Brodsky was one of the most penetrating voices of the twentieth century. This prize-winning collection of his diverse essays includes uniquely powerful appreciations of great writers: on Dostoevsky and the development of Russian prose, on Auden and Akhmatova, Cavafy, Montale and Mandelstam. These are contrasted with his reflections on larger themes of tyranny and evil, and subtle evocations of his childhood in Leningrad. Brodsky's insightful appreciation of the intricacies of language, culture and identity connect these works, revealing his remarkable gifts as a prose writer.

The 12 Million Stuffed Shark from the Author: Don Thompson. Why would a smart New York investment banker pay $12 million for the decaying, stuffed carcass of a shark? By what alchemy does Jackson Pollock's drip painting No. 5, 1948 sell for $140 million? Intriguing and entertaining, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark is a Freakonomics approach to the economics and psychology of the contemporary art world. Why were record prices achieved at auction for works by 131 contemporary artists in 2006 alone, with astonishing new heights reached in 2007? Don Thompson explores the money, lust, and self-aggrandizement of the art world in an attempt to determine what makes a particular work valuable while others are ignored. This book is the first to look at the economics and the marketing strategies that enable the modern art market to generate such astronomical prices. Drawing on interviews with both past and present executives of auction houses and art dealerships, artists, and the buyers who move the market, Thompson launches the reader on a journey of discovery through the peculiar world of modern art. Surprising, passionate, gossipy, revelatory, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark reveals a great deal that even experienced auction purchasers do not know.
