THE DAWN OF EVERYTHING by David Graeber and David Wengrow received an enthusiastic review from ArtForum. Simon Wu writes: "The premise is exhilarating, and its implications are only beginning to be considered…[Y]ou get the sense that a political consciousness is an artistic consciousness. This view enables us to look at works of art with renewed optimism, as little windows into alternative ways of living rather than 'artificial hells’…At a moment when so many artists, curators, and academics are eager to ‘decenter the human’ in their work, THE DAWN OF EVERYTHING invites us to do the (much harder) job of reframing the braided questions of what humankind was, is, and could be." Farrar, Straus and Giroux published the book on November 9, 2021.
