From Tony Ourslers Boot to Anri Salas Dammi i Colori, the works presented here were gathered together for the inaugural exhibition at the Museo de Arte Contemporneo de Castilla y Le*n, which opened in Le*n, Spain, in 2005. MUSACs agenda, above and beyond collecting contemporary art, is the establishment of a dialogue with the public about everyday events that affect and threaten human sensibility. Emergencies documents that collecting, and is also a platform for the expression of the artists and the museums utopian hopes, as well as a stage for the fight between injustice and artists dreams. To that end, each section of this dense, well-designed volume lists further reading on the artistic and political topics covered--government, nonprofit and reference addresses to turn to for more information in addition to web sites of interest.
