This anthology traces the central and diverse roles of memory activation and the memory-image in aesthetic theory and art practice from early modernism to the present.
Ian Farr is commissioning editor for Documents of Contemporary Art. He was formerly an editor of Phaidon's Contemporary Artists and Themes & Movements series.
"This brilliant assemblage of meditations on widely differing forms of memory practice fills in what was a yawning gap between the time of our own remembering and the spatial working-out of other moments. Subversion, inversion and the performance of forgetting and presentness converge in these pages of interrelated texts and theories." - Mary Ann Caws, Professor of English, French and Comparative Literature, Graduate Center, City University of New York
