Description

NOTE: THIS ARTIST'S BOOK IS HELD IN BALTIC ARCHIVE NOT THE LIBRARY. Please email archive@balticmill.com for an appointment or see staff. 

Rule Book is an extensive collection of guides, instructions, manuals and rules that have been amassed by Angela Bulloch. They are taken from sources as disparate as: parking restrictions, the Ten Commandments, the standing order of the House of Commons, hankie colour codes, Birkenstock care tips and the detoxification diet.

By displacing these rules from their social and political context Bulloch reveals their ‘man-made structure’ as well as a society that, in order to maintain a stable social structure, imposes regulations and controls on every conceivable form of activity. As such, the book forms an intriguing snapshot of society at the close of the twentieth century.

Out of print.
