about Do It:
With Do It in hand, you will be able to make a work of (someone else's) art yourself. Do It began in 1993 with a discussion among Christian Boltanski, Bertrand Lavier and Hans Ulrich Obrist, and ever since has provided its public with how-to pages of instructions written by 182 of the most important artists and writers working today. Some of the projects are historic classics brought forward especially for the occasion, but most of the contributions being imagined here are new. Do it has grown in stages, springing up around the world in 45 museums and cultural centers in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Australia. The time has come to summarize the results in a book that is part manual, part cookbook, part do-it-yourself kit. Here it is. It has only just began!
