All or nothing and other pages – Michael Gibbs
Uniformbooks released the publication All or nothing and other pages – Michael Gibbs during the art festival Let it keep secrets – Michael Gibbs.
A survey of the work of Michael Gibbs whose activities included poetry, performance, film, and publishing, and his immersion in what he called “a genuinely ‘underground ’ culture… which owed nothing to the official art establishment ”. As well as visual poetry and texts, the book includes his major study of blank books ‘All or Nothing ’, written in 2005, a selection of critical writing that originally appeared in Kontexts, and Artzien, journals that he edited and published, as well as articles from the photography journal Perspektief, and Art Monthly, for which he wrote a regular column. A chronology of examples of his visual and concrete poems, books and photography is reproduced, along with documentation of performances.
Edited by Gerrit Jan de Rook & Andrew Wilson
With 76 pages of black and white illustrations.
