John Latham (1921–2006) is widely considered one of the pioneers of British conceptual art.

His work encompassed sculpture, installation, painting, ?lm, land art, engineering, assemblage, performances and happenings and theoretical writings; he is probably most famous for his burning book towers (“skoobs”) and his light-show collaborations with Pink Floyd. The incredible diversity of Latham’s work was part of a lifelong quest to understand our place in the universe.

The first comprehensive volume on this cult artist, John Latham: A World View traces the trajectory of Latham’s practice and brings together archival material, including documentary photographs, texts, correspondence and various ephemera, in order to build a picture of the artist’s life and work.
