Abstract: Book Description: As one of the largest world industries today, tourism and leisure have a profound impact on our way of life, reflecting the shifting cultural, economic, and social realities that take place across the globe. In the past, Delphine Bebel has explored this issue through different media including a photographic series, videos, texts, talks and publications. With this book, Bebel expands on her 2007 Amsterdam exhibition Reality Check with photographs and an array of contemporary perspectives that address questions about representation, art, and tourism from artists and critics such as Franscesco Bernardelli, Rachel Esner, Frederikke Hansen, Bruno Latour, Marco Pasi, Renee Ridgway, Thibaut de Ruyter and Olivier Rolin.
