October Files

October Files is a series of inexpensive paperback books edited by the editors of October journal. Each book addresses a body of work by an artist of the postwar period who has altered our understanding of art in significant ways and prompted a critical literature that is sophisticated and sustained. Each book in this series traces not only the development of an important oeuvre but also the construction of the critical discourse inspired by it.

Series editor: Rosalind Krauss (founding editor), Annette Michelson (founding editor, 1922-2018), George Baker, Yve-Alain Bois, Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Huey Copeland, Leah Dickerman, Devin Fore, Hal Foster, Denis Hollier, David Joselit, Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Pamela M. Lee, Mignon Nixon, and Malcolm Turvey, editors
