Michael Dean: Selected Writings is published on the occasion of Michael Dean’s solo exhibition “Government” at The Henry Moore Institute in Leeds. Co-published by The Henry Moore Foundation and Mousse Publishing, this book presents a carefully chosen group of texts by the artist alongside documentation of his work in exhibitions and two essays, by Lisa Le Feuvre and Pavel S. Pyś, discussing Dean’s artistic practice. Over the past decade Dean has produced a number of publications distributing his texts and inviting responses to his work. Selected Writings is the first book on Michael Dean that has not been produced by the artist. This book functions like an exhibition: it puts Dean’s work into a realm of thought outside of the artist’s control.
