This publication documents the importance of collecting and packaging, storing, and archiving as a contemporary artistic strategy. It lends surprising insight into the process of creating art, which itself is a result of collecting experiences and materials, by using the work of forty internationally celebrated artists as examples. In Deep Storage, these archives of materials become works of art themselves. The documentation and exhibition of these extreme departures from conventional forms of collection and recollection is a stunning project in the avant-garde tradition. In accordance with its subject matter, this book is organized like a storage file of information, in which the broad spectrum of artistic contributions and essays and texts by twenty-five authors is presented alphabetically.
