About This Item: 
A fully updated edition of the artist's first comprehensive monograph, more than a decade since its original publication.Francis Alÿs examines the patterns of various urban sites before weaving his own fables into their tangled social fabric with wit, sensitivity, and an acutely personal connection to his subject matter Scenes such as a Volkswagen Beetle struggling up a hill or a man pushing a block of ice can carry a message that resonates far beyond the work's simple parameters As Alÿs puts it, 'Sometimes doing something poetic can become political, and sometimes doing something political can become poetic.'
