Hands Make Mistakes is the first monograph about the work of Ariel Schlesinger.
Hands Make Mistakes provides a kaleidoscopic insight into the making and individual voice of Ariel Schlesinger. This book provides context and covers a broad range of Schlesinger's projects, from adolescent doodles to complex collaborations. Two new essays (by Barbara Casavecchia and Adam Kleinman), a conversation-in-an-exhibition between Abraham Cruzvillegas and Catalina Lozano, an introspective text about the reconstruction of a Japanese temple, a reprint of Vilém Flusser's essay "The Gesture of Making" (pub. 1991) and reproductions of dreamy gallery texts written by Sarah Demeuse are set in 54 full color reproductions of past and recent exhibitions.
