Published to accompany a worldwide touring exhibition, The Stutter of History brings together a wide-ranging survey of works spanning the arc of Thomas Demand's career and offers insight into how we might approach the onslaught of historical events that we consume in the form of images. This extensive book displays the breadth and depth of Demand’s artistic accomplishment, demonstrating in one volume why he is considered one of the world’s foremost contemporary artists. Includes a new short story by award-winning author Ali Smith written in response to a work by Demand, as well as an illuminating essay by Douglas Fogle, curator of the exhibition, and an essay by Margaret Iversen.
