Featured image, No Title (It has in…), 2010, is reproduced from Raymond Pettibon: Here's Your Irony Back, published by Hatje Cantz, David Zwirner and Regen Projects. This superbly biting collection of Pettibon's political works made between 1975 and 2013 features a remarkable essay by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, who concludes, "Pettibon’s decision to develop a new type of dark caricature without laughter follows his dialectical impulse to sabotage the conciliatory consequences of his own inevitable submission to the processes of acculturation. At this particular moment of history, only a realism of utter depravity, that of the subjects as much as that of the subjected, can continue Pettibon’s anti-aesthetic project of dark caricature after laughter." Pettibon will sign copies at BOOKMARC New York next Tuesday night, November 12.
