This book celebrates through art and writing the 50th Anniversary of The World Health Organization, and catalogs the international exhibitions and events which the Art for The World Association is holding in honor of this anniversary. The participating artists, chosen from five continents, represent among the best known in their respective countries -- including Robert Rauschenberg, Alfredo Jaar, Ilya Kabakov, Sol Lewitt, Vito Acconci, Tatsuo Miyajima, Chen Zhen and many more. Each of these artists was asked to provide work for the travelling exhibit (billboards, murals, etc.) on the theme of world health, and the results are documented in this book. Also included are extensive texts by noted critics and writers from such countries as Egypt, Brazil, South Africa, Bosnia, Thailand, Italy, and Spain. The genuinely global approach of this project is evident on every level, and the theme of health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity" is conveyed throughout.
