This nitty gritty, down-and-dirty two pack goes into the science of yuckiness. Dirt presents a selection of works that share dirty attitudes: essays, interviews, excavations, and projects that view dirt not as filth but as a medium, a metaphor, a material, a process, a design tool, a narrative, a system. History of Shit is emblematic of a wild and adventurous strain of 1970s theoretical writing that attempted to marry theory, politics, sexuality, pleasure, experimentation, and humor.
Dirt, edited by Megan Born, Helene Furján, and Lily Jencks. Paperback. 330 Pages. 315 color illustrations. 60 black and white illustrations. History of Shit, by Dominique Laporte. Paperback. 175 Pages.
