WordPower: Language as Medium

Reflecting on the shift from representative forms to simplified modes of visual communication, this two-part publication explores works by a selection of 100 contemporary artists who implement the direct use of language and the written word in their process. WordPower features practices ranging from socially engaged and participatory approaches to sculptural, conceptual, performative and new media formats.
