Rotterdam: Boymans-van Beuningen, 1981. Softcover. 60pp. Printed black and white with card stapled wraps, illustrated throughout. Text in Dutch and English. 

Miguel-Ángel Cárdenas (1934–2015) was a Colombian-born artist celebrated for his contributions to video art. A key figure in the 'Nouveau Réalisme' movement and founding member of the artist-run space 'Out Centre' in Amsterdam, Cárdenas used video as a medium to explore themes of gender identity and sexuality. His innovative video installations delved into the intersections of human relationships, technology, and individuality, leaving a lasting impact on the contemporary art landscape.

This catalogue highlights Cárdenas's 1981 exhibition at the Boymans-van Beuningen museum, centring specifically on his video art. It serves as a comprehensive exploration of Cárdenas's performances and visual works spanning the years 1969-1981, all collaboratively compiled with the artist himself. Each individual piece is presented on a dedicated page with accompanying text in Dutch, accompanied by a photographic reproduction.

The catalogue features an Introduction by W.A.L. Beeren and an essay titled "The Video of Michel Cárdenas" by Peter Rubin, both written in Dutch and English.

Very good condition: minor creasing and edge wear; library stamp.
