From the publisher: "Secret Games offers a comprehensive overview of Ewald's collaborative works. The extraordinary scope and breadth of her longtime project is revealed here for the first time. In-depth texts by Ewald trace the evolution of her work and the ideas guiding it. Secret Games takes you on an unusual trip around the world, confronting you with fundamental cultural differences and the radicality of children's vision of the world. Secret Games challenges our concepts of authorship, art, childhood and adulthood, forcing the reader to re-examine familiar and comfortable assumptions. This beautiful and passionate book presents truly new and stunning images that transcend the artworld's often predictable approach to image-making."
