From the publisher: "The pieces of artist Andrea Zittel--who has received increasing worldwide attention since her participation in Documenta X--can be read variously as art objects, utopian visions, or consumer goods. Zittel invents living spaces, styling every detail from clothing to architecture. Visitors to these spaces are automatically confronted with questions about their own lifestyle, and the needs and wishes associated with it: Could our living conditions be improved? Couldn't we do without a lot of the commodities populating both our professional life and our leisure time? What criteria do we use in deciding what kind of environment is right for us? In what ways do our private and public lives differ, and where do we find freedom, where do we find obligation? Andrea Zittel: Personal Programs deftly illustrates the holistic creative concepts of this rising star with a selection of works from A-Z Living Units to her newest work, the Raugh series."
