In Danh Vos's installation arrangements of objects, photographs, documents, artifacts and souvenirs, the private meets the public, his own biography on political history, original on copy. 


The two-volume publication provides a complete overview of Danh Vo's stringent work for the first time. The first volume provides a detailed and chronologically edited summary of his projects and exhibitions, supplemented by numerous installation footage, and texts by Julie Ault, Yilmaz Dziewior, Doryun Chong and Oscar Faria dealing with the aspects of biography and history, ready-made and appropriation, poetry and poetry policy in Danh Vo’s work. 


The second volume honors the participation of Father Danh Vo’s, Phung Vo, in the projects of his son as a separate work complex. A number of copies of a letter written in France in the nineteenth century, written by Théophane Vénard, who was later beheaded by the Catholic Church as a martyr, before the beheading of his own father.


This book accompanying Danh Vo’s solo exhibition at the Kunsthaus Bregenz pays homage to the artist’s father, Phung Vo, and his contributions to his son’s projects. Together with “Dahn Vo 2004-2012,” this volume constitutes a Danh Vo catalogue raisonne.
