Luis Camnitzer’s One Number is Worth One Word

The recent collection of the artist’s writing on art and education concerns a keen interest in conceptual art as communication, museums as places of learning, the political possibilities of creative thinking, and a constant trespassing between disciplines and forms.

Ranging from poetry chapbooks to photo portfolios, the more than editions produced also include the monographs accompanying major museum exhibitions.
