The first comprehensive publication on the work of British artist Mona Hatoum, who was recently awarded the Sonning Prize and the Roswitha Haftmann Prize for 2004.

Mona Hatoum has long been regarded in Great Britain and the U.S. as one of the most important artists of her generation. The daughter of Palestinian parents, she was born in Lebanon in 1952 and has lived in London since 1975. Life outside her homeland has heightened Mona Hatoum's sensitivity to the themes of power and identity, which are leitmotivs in her oeuvre. Many of her objects, video pieces, and installations deal with aspects of institutionalized violence and the vulnerability of the individual. Her central point of reference is the body - in many cases her own. This is the first book to document the development of Mona Hatoum's oeuvre and includes a presentation of her performances from her early works to her most recent projects. All of her works can be read as formulas for human existence - expressed in a compelling visual language that is both multi-faceted and intriguing. As the artist herself points out, "You first experience an artwork physically. I like the work to operate on both sensual and intellectual levels. Meanings, connotations and associations come after the initial physical experience as your imagination, intellect, psyche are fired off by what you've seen."
