Víctor del Río: Factografía. Vanguardia y comunicación de masas

Factografía. Vanguardia y comunicación de masas, by Víctor del Río (reviewed by Rosa Benéitez and ABC.es), was published last year.

The book seeks:

to trace a path through a largely forgotten concept that, nevertheless, has an enormous capacity to influence the history of art from after World War II. When we speak of the history of contemporary art, we are referring to both its character as a story and its successive practices. Some of the latter, especially conceptual art, reveal a not-always-recognized connection to factography, which also makes the latter an explanatory model for more recent manifestations.
