Daniel Joseph Martinez: The Fully Enlightened Earth Radiates Disaster Triumphant commemorates the artist's selection as the United States representative at the 10th International 2006 Cairo Bienial. A post-Tactical media practitioner, Martinez employs mutation and schizophrenia in his artwork to investigate politics and radical beauty. Ongoing themes include contamination, history, nomadic power, cultural resistance, dissentience and systems of symbolic exchange.
The catalogue was published to coincide with the exhibition Daniel Joseph Martinez: The Fully Enlightened Earth Radiates Disaster Triumphant, organized by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston 2006 International Biennale of Cairo, Egypt (December 12, 2006 - February 12, 2007).
