Further information:
"Here is a bewildering collection of curios of everyday violence: press photos of street fights, naked victims of war, and tortured prisoners follow staged body-art pictures and a wide array of objects colored by desire, power, exposure and surveillance... The book is a complete work of art, offensive in every sense of the word, and as an artistic manifesto about violence in the twenty-first century, it couldn't be any more current, especially given movements like activist art. 'Pornografie' was first published in 1971, and has subsequently become an outstanding and timeless document of political artwork." (from the Steidl Publishing website)

This book is featured in 'The Silent Scream; political and social comment in books by artists'. For more information see PUBLICATIONS.
