Yoko Ono: "Imagine Yoko"

"Imagine Yoko" is a book of ideas--provocative, engaging, enjoyable. In this unique edition Yoko Ono shares her inner thoughts with us on such themes as what art really is and how art can make the world a better place.

This brilliant book also gives us an unclouded insight into Yoko's artistic realm and guides us through her work.

So what is art? Art is to imagine. Art can be the saviour when politics fail. Art is a means of survival.

The book is an anthology of aphorisms and essays that Yoko has verbally communicated or written over the years, compiled and edited by Bakhall's founder Orjan Gerhardsson in close cooperation with the artist herself.
