This crowd of artists were recruited for a mini-survey of contemporary art based on the diversity of their approaches and practices, which the editors saw as representative. Their work in a variety of media from film and video to painting and installation is informed by everyday life, and addresses issues such as ecology, technology, popular culture and globalization. The pieces gathered here include a mix of key moments in conceptual art and newly commissioned works, sourced from the artists' studios and from international collections. Contributors include Liam Gillick, Carsten Holler, Douglas Gordon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Jorge Pardo, Sarah Morris, Cerith Wyn Evans, Sarah Lucas, Anri Sala, Doug Aitken, Jim Lambie, Paola Pivi, Carles Congost, and Eva Rothschild, and their work appears alongside pieces from the estates of Alighiero e Boetti and Bas Jan Ader. With texts from Liam Gillick and Kurt Vonnegut, among others.
