Roberto Jacoby, Art from the End of the World: Six Decades of Sound and Fury collects the writings of artist and sociologist Roberto Jacoby alongside new art historical texts. The publication emerges from a graduate seminar at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College and is supported by the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA). Consisting of over fifty of Jacoby’s artistic projects and texts from the 1960s up to today—many of which have been translated into English for the first time—the volume traces many of the conceptual and theoretical touchstones of his career, including the media, networks, language, poetry, lyrics, and the politics of joy, resistance, and relationality.
Roberto Jacoby, Art from the End of the World: Six Decades of Sound and Fury was researched, edited, and features written introductions by Abel González Fernández, Kyle Herrington, Claire Kim, Ursula Pokorny, Clara Prat-Gay, Olivia Rodrigues, Clara von Turkovich, and Calvin Wang, with editorial oversight from K.ari.n Schneider and Roberto Jacoby.
