Summary Joshua Sofaer works across boundaries, borders, and disciplines to create artworks that engage with all levels of society. In cultural institutions or on the street, for art galleries or personal homes, staged as operas or cast as golden sculptures, Sofaer's work weaves with and through social fabric to consider the ideas that hold us together. Copublished with the Live Art Development Agency, this lavishly illustrated volume is the first in-depth study of the artist's work, featuring discussions with producers and participants, documentary images and a new photographic essay, interviews with the artist himself, and thirteen commissioned essays by scholars, curators, and artists from the perspectives of performance studies, archaeology, and opera criticism.
