Blinded by Love


A monographic publication on the work of Franko B, Blinded by Love documents his practical research into the politics of performance, covering over 15 years of artistic activity.

The works in the volume span from paintings and objects, characterized by the recurring triptych Man-Heart-Cross, to the documentation concerning live performances in which the artist’s flesh and blood become a canvas for the representation of vulnerability, pain and loss.
