This unconventional publication explores the process of making art through the work and studio practice of Sophie Whettnall (b. 1973), a contemporary Belgian artist whose works range from video art, installation, and performance to sculpture and drawing. In addition to copious illustrations of Whettnall’s artwork that highlight its relationship to the studio and the artist’s creative process, the book features three conversations. The first, between Whettnall and fellow artist Marina Abramovic, explores transmission, violence, and femininity. The second, between Emiliano Battista and Scott Samuelson, situates Whettnall’s work and practice in the broader context of contemporary art and the theoretical framework that shapes it. In the third, Carine Fol and Whettnall share with the reader the behind-the-scenes discussions and decisions that go into the mounting of an exhibition.

Marina Abramovic is a Serbian performance artist. Emiliano Battista is a philosopher and bookmaker. Carine Fol is artistic director of CENTRALE for contemporary art, Brussels. Scott Samuelson is professor of philosophy at Kirkwood Community College.
