The Sarajevo-born artist Braco Dimitrijev'c has forged a strongly personal and original artistic path through the great movements of the postwar period, from kinetic and op art to conceptual and performance art. Throughout his work, he has returned to questions of fame and fate: what is it that catapults certain people into the historical limelight, and what causes others to be mere "casual passersby"? Dimitrijevic gained international attention in the 1970s for his supersized portraits of unknown subjects hung in large public spaces, and ever since his work has been focused on questions of "post-history," a set of ideas he formulated in 1976. This monograph provides a comprehensive look at his arresting theory in action.
