Daniel Joseph Martinez (*1957 in Los Angeles) exhibits his work throughout the world. For over thirty years now, he has consistently divined sociopolitical fault lines in the American psyche and carefully placed conceptual and perceptual explosives into them. This volume, with essays by Michael Brenson, David Levi Strauss, Hakim Bey, and Gilbert Vicario, chronicles and reflects on selected works from 1978 to 2008, concentrating on the work of the past fifteen years—from his controversial intervention at the 1993 Whitney Biennial to his Divine Violence piece at the same show in 2008, or his contributions to the San Juan Triennial in 2004, the Cairo Biennial in 2006, and the Moscow Biennial in 2007. A variety of further installations, text works, photographs, sculptures, animatronics, and videos complete the catalogue.
»A long overdue survey of the career of Daniel Joseph Martinez came in the form of a book called ‘A Life of Disobedience’, the best way to catch the full impact of an artist for whom art, life and politics are inseparable.«
