This first monograph on the work of Ei Arakawa is published subsequently to his show Performance People at Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf. Beyond a documentation of the exhibition alone, the eponymous publication allows a profound understanding of Arakawas complex artistic practice in general: on behalf of Illustrations, performance scripts, notes, and sketches it unfolds a kind of archive along the performances as well as the performance people the artist has worked with for nearly twenty years.

With contributions by Ei Arakawa, Eva Birkenstock, Sarah Chow, John Kelsey, Jutta Koether, Erika Landström and Reiko Tomii.
