Gestalten has published a new book about art and politics — Art & Agenda: Political Art and Activism, edited by R. Klanten, M. Hübner, A. Bieber, P. Alonzo, G. Jansenby.

This full-colour coffee table treat introduces, explores and has contributions from more than 100 artists whose work is pushing political and artistic boundaries including Ai Weiwei, YesMen, William Kentridge, Voina Group, Swoon, Elmgreen & Dragset, Fernando Bryce, Gregor Schneider, Hank Willis Thomas, Jennifer Karady, Jota Castro, Marina Abramovic, Maurizio Cattelan, Milica Tomic, Paul McCarthy, Santiago Sierra, and Zhang Huan.

A sneak preview on the Gelstalten website suggests that this is a beautiful and remarkable collection of activist art.

I don’t have my copy yet, but it’s definitely on my list.
