Douglas Gordon's work epitomises a new fluidity which has developed between video and film in contemporary art. His installation "The Vanity of Allegory" at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin includes loans from the "Guggenheim" and private collections, as well as examples of his own work and that of his peers. By combining historical and contemporary art and film, Gordon has created a visual collage that narrates issues of self-representation and double identity. This catalogue illustrates each object in the show along with Gordon's rationale for including it in "The Vanity of Allegory".
