Abstract :
In 1966 John Latham and some friends began chewing Clement Greenberg's book Art and culture. The resulting art work, entitled Art and Culture (1966-1969), is now recognized as a seminal conceptual art work and is part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Latham, however, had borrowed the book from St. Martin's School of Art Library and when he was unable to return it in a suitable condition his teaching contract was not renewed. This essay looks at the history of the work, the ideas behind its creation, and the issues it raises for the culture of the book today. ;
