The Words of Others: León Ferrari and Rhetoric in Times of War provides a wide-ranging survey of the artist’s literary collages using appropriated texts, produced from 1965 to 2013—a body of work which represents a kind of experimental writing at the intersection of visual arts, performance, theater, literature and activism. Exploring a little-known aspect of Ferrari’s work, this volume includes seven essays by academics from Latin America and Europe with previously unpublished primary source documents (press notes, photographs and correspondence, among others), and more than 100 illustrations.
