In a daring act of historical reconstruction, the celebrated curator Germano Celant, in dialogue with Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaas, has recreated Harald Szeemann's epochal Live in Your Head. When Attitudes Become Form, held at the Bern Kunsthalle in 1969, and installed by Celant at the magnificent Ca' Corner della Regina in Venice in June-November 2013. Szeemann's show was very much a dialogue with the interior of the Bern Kunsthalle, and Celant has reprised the spirit of the original by emphatically placing the works in dialogue with the Ca' Corner della Regina-a very different building, in its Venetian grandeur, to the Kunsthalle. This beautiful publication is divided into three parts: the first reproduces a wealth of photo documentation of the original exhibit, the second compiles essays and interviews on Celant's ambitious project and the third includes the installation views of the show in Venice. The book is completed by a "Register" of all works included in both shows.
