Exhibition catalogue to Juan Muñoz's 1996–97 Dia installation A Place Called Abroad and 1998 Site Santa Fe project Streetwise. "A Place Called Abroad and Streetwise can be read as the culmination of an enduring dual focus: a long-standing preoccupation with architecture as a psychological locus and a symbolic sign system rather than a functionalist discourse; and a more recent probing of the image of the double, the dark duplicate that fissures modern subjectivity, evincing and embodying otherness. Interwoven, these abiding tropes became the vehicles for a poetic exegesis, in which, in the artist's evocative phrase, one 'gropes for [his] true center.'"   – Lynne Cooke
