The book is an introduction to the artistic process of Francis Alÿs and presents the preparatory work for The Last Clown. It includes sketches, drawings and paintings, along with an essay by curator Michèle Thériault. The author situates Alÿs’ Last Clown exhibition within the context of his previous works based on walking through the city. She draws attention to the paradoxical nature of an art practice explicitly concerned with the relationship between art and everyday life.
