The book 'The Shape of Evidence' examines the role of visual documents in contemporary art, looking at artworks which value these not only as sources of information, but also as distinctive visual and critical forms.

As such, they offer a way to develop critical reflection around issues of representation, knowledge production, art and its history: the role of the museum and archive, the role of documents and our trust in them, the circulation of such images and the historical genealogies that can be drawn in relation to images. Based on a close reading of a selection of artworks, Sophie Berrebi considers greater issues concerning visual documents through an interdisciplinary approach.
