Richard Prince: Collected Writings is the first collection of selected short works by American artist Richard Prince (*1949). Prince is mainly known for his photographs of iconic pictures from advertising and pop culture, such as the erotic Nurses paintings, the Marlboro cowboys, or his Jokes, text images of chauvinist jokes through which he holds a mirror up to the viewer. Written between 1974 and 2009, these thirty-five pieces of prose explore everything from Franz Kline to Woodstock, and include revealing musings on the revolutionary approach to photography central to Prince's technique.
A literary text by Jonathan Lethem, author of the currently much-talked-about novel Chronic City, rounds off this very special volume edited by Kristine McKenna.
