When I arrived back in Berlin yesterday from my Scotland trip, my postbox was full of new mails and packages, including the new best of Modart book called “Modart No. 01 – Forget Art: In Order to Feel it”!
The 250 pages hard back book contains features about several urban artists, illustrators and photographers like JR, Os Gemeos, Adam Neate, Space Invader, Blu, Ruedi One and Mark Jenkins, organized by the categories Spy, Rider’s Ink, Illustrated Works, Inside, Show & Tell, Photo and Random.
Also there are some specials about the Wallbreakers festival and a broad chapter which shows all the covers of the Modart magazine…
“The book is a best of Modart magazine, and gives an overview of what we printed and thought, as the experimental, action based and almost folk art practices around us developed and were prematurely put under a scope of definitions as they simultaneously earned accolade and accusation, becoming a source of inspiration for artists around the globe.” (press release)
For me, the book has an cleaned and deliberate effect. Riddled with great quotations by the artists themselves, it’s very interesting to read the informing wide texts and to watch the great artworks.
The book in available in several shop. You could get your issue for example on amazon.com.
