Resistance – And Then, We Built New Forms features a bilingual, theoretical dossier on resistance from celebrated international and Quebec authors. This publication is significant, as it is the first time that a key text by Brian Holmes is translated into French, and likewise that an important essay by Guy Sioui Durand is translated into English, thus rendering the catalogue into an important critical tool for a wide-ranging audience of artists, academics, art writers, and those interested in politics and the arts. Complementing the theoretical dossier is a full-color portfolio of the thirty-six artists that make up the official selection of Manif d’art 7 – The Quebec City Biennial.
