Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form
This catalogue for Harald Szeemann’s groundbreaking 1969 traveling survey, Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form, was published by the Institute of Contemporary Arts, its London venue. Documenting the work of the exhibition’s sixty-nine participants in black-and-white images and texts, it details one of the most discussed and influential undertakings in twentieth-century art—one that reformulated the roles of both artist and curator along conceptual lines and established new possibilities in exhibition making. Alongside text contributions by Scott Burton, Charles Harrison, Grégoire Müller, John A. Murphy, Harald Szeemann, and Tommaso Trini, each artist is accorded an individual loose page with a photographic portrait, biographical details, and images of their proposed works. Bound with a metal fastener and featuring alphabetical index tabs, the book has the practical look and informative feel of a commercial instruction manual.
