Steven Cohen “Life is Shot, Art is Long” takes a further retrospective view of works spanning 22 years. This book follows on the groundbreaking TAXI Art book from David Krut publishing in 2003.

“Maid in South Africa (2005), Dancing Inside Out (2006) and Golgotha (2009), to his installation of collaged Nazi identity documents, Inscribed in the Book of Life (2010). This generously illustrated catalogue includes an interview with Cohen by Ivor Powell and an essay (in French only) by critic Gerard Mayen on Golgotha”.

Steven Cohen’s presence in France has allowed for an expanded body of work and he continues to remind an audience of important issues from history such as the Holocaust and anti-semitism.
