With (literally) two starting points and a provocative resistance to received standards of design, Hawthorn seeks to question ideas of legitimisation of the artist through publication. One section of the book is devoted to the artist's critical text taking the Nazi's 1937 Degenerate Art exhibition as the starting point for an investigation of the idea of art against an ideal of political action. The second section invites contributions to the debate from contemporary performance practitioners.
