Temporary Services was honored to be included in the exhibition, organized by independent curator Lauren van Haaften-Schick for The Center For Book Arts, that this catalog is derived from. This densely-packed book stands alone as an effective resource guide on the topic at hand; it is filled with interesting case studies and hard to find historical information. The show itself was described by The Center as follows:

"This exhibition presents cancelled or otherwise prohibited exhibitions that now exist as publications or in other formats. These publications document the process and politics of cancelation, exist as an alternative manifestation of the exhibit, act as a critique of the forces that called for its cancelation, or they may be an admission and exposition of an ultimately productive failure. In the context of the Center for Book Arts, Canceled highlights the book form as a crucial means of disseminating documentation and information on a wide and accessible scale, potentially in ways that are more historically stable, and more effective, than the original exhibition would have been. Through utilizing printed matter, these artists and curators have found alternative routes by which the politics surrounding the presentation and creation of art become at least as relevant as the work itself."

This catalog includes essays by Lauren van Haaften-Schick, Curator, and contributions by Guerrilla Girls and Sérgio Muñoz Sarmiento. Also included: Bas Jan Ader, Greg Allen, Jo Baer, Wallace Berman, Christoph Büchel v. Mass MoCA, Patrick Cariou v. Richard Prince, Dexter Sinister, Exit Art, Brendan Fowler, Guerrilla Girls, Hans Haacke, David Horvitz, Douglas Huebler, Wu Hung, Jill Magid, Rhoda Rosen, Seth Siegelaub, Temporary Services, Lawrence Weiner, Werkplaats Typografie, Anton Vidokle, Marion van Wijk and Koos Dalstra, Amy Wilson, David Wojnarowicz, and others.

Temporary Services participated in the exhibit with a free offset reprint of our widely-read booklet "Why The Exhibit Was Canceled", which van Haaften-Schick cited as a major influence on organizing the show. As a bonus, when you order this book, we will include a free copy of our "Why the Exhibit was Canceled" booklet.
