Title Description - This book is an anthology of writings by artists and critics which meditate on
the subject of desire. In the contemporary context, the editor argues, desire is
caught up in the delimitation of public and private space. This selection of
"discussions about voyeurism, surveillance, the divisions of public and private
space, ...[and] the shifting parameters of the physical body" make for a diverse
and provocative reading. Contributions by Dennis Adams, Merry Allan, Beatriz
Colomina, Tony Labat, Shirin Neshat, Anna Novakov, David Reed, Stelarc, Octavio
Zaya, and Nicholas Zurbrugg. With b&w illustrations. 29 June 2009
