For this pleasingly compact introduction to the wilder shores of contemporary European and American art, the BSI Art Collection in Geneva invited several writers, critics, artists and scientists--including Luca Cerizza, Joachim Koester, Helen Mirra and Hans Ulrich Obrist--to write responses to the works of artists held in its collection. The results, which range from the essayistic to outright fiction, make Maps and Legendsan excellent example of the sheer scope of possible responses one can have to an artwork. Reproductions and installation shots of 11 artists--Franz Ackermann, Alighiero e Boetti, Marine Hugonnier, Joachim Koester, Deborah Ligorio, Jonathan Monk, Philippe Parreno, Kirsten Pieroth, Daniel Roth, Tomas Saraceno and Christopher Williams--make this book an informative read and a delightfully designed publication.
