White Cube's second book with Bruce Nauman, Presence / Absence is published to coincide with Nauman's solo exhibition at White Cube Hong Kong in 2021. Including a text by independent curator and writer Joan Simon, whose scholarship on Nauman's work has been widely acknowledged since her 1988 Art in America article, this exhibition catalogue focuses on five of the artist's films. Making a pair with Nauman's 2012 Inside the White Cube publication, which centred on films made between 1967 and 1969, this new title brings together five works ranging in date from 1999 to 2013. The book foregrounds the artist's continued experimental approach, both in front of and behind the camera, and considers these more recent films within the wider context of the artist's entire oeuvre. Contributors: Joan Simon is an independent curator, writer and editor who has conducted a number of interviews and written extensively on Bruce Nauman.
