A publication on the work of Pakistani artist, activist, writer, editor and curator Rasheed Araeen, who has been based in London since 1964. Apart from pioneering minimalist sculpture in Britain, he was among the first to voice the need of artists of non-Western origins to be represented in Western cultural institutions. In 1978, he founded the art journal Black Phoenix (later resurrected as Third Text). The present volume brings together a selection of his articles, essays and correspondence with gallery directors and funding bodies, interspersed with documentation of his multi-disciplinary work. With introduction by art critic Guy Brett.
