Olafur Eliasson

Your Engagement has Consequences
Lars Müller Publishers, 2006
290 x 300 mm, 304 pages

This comprehensive illustrated book documents three current exhibitions by the artist Olafur Eliasson: “Your Light Shadow,” Hara Museum, Tokyo, Japan; “Notion Motion,” Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, the Netherlands; and “The light setup” in the Malmö Konsthall, Sweden.

Although it makes up only a small part of the book, theoretical background is provided in the form of conversations with and comments by the artist that focus on aspects of human perception, society, and life. With its meticulously arranged dramaturgy of imagery in the form an illustrated encyclopedia, the book offers an overview of the artist’s current works.
