Marienbad eléctrico

Marienbad Electric | Seix Barral, 2016

A book for long-time Vila-Matas fans and contemporary art aficionados and critics alike.

From September 2015 to February 2016, the Pompidou Centre is set to stage a major exhibition dedicated to the work of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster. A follower and friend of the artist of many years’ standing, Vila-Matas has written a piece on the show.

Following on from Kassel no invita a la lógica, in which, amid bafflement, irony, humour and fascination, he takes the world of contemporary art head on, Vila-Matas continues to mine this rich seam. Making the themes and challenges posed by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster his own, Vila-Matas turns his attention to the discipline of contemporary performance and again offers up a delightful homage to art.
