Abstract (English)

"Francis Alÿs, born in Belgium in 1959, is one of the world's leading contemporary artists. After studying architecture in Venice, in 1986 he moved to Mexico City, where he has lived ever since. Alÿs works at scales ranging from the humblest drawing to the creation of epic events involving hundreds of participants, in media including video, photography, painting and performance." -- Back cover.
