The book Antonio Manuel: I Want to Act, Not Represent! gathers reproductions of works created by Antonio Manuel in the 1960s and 1970s, in which he manipulates images taken from the mainstream media, explores performance and video art techniques, and reinterprets his own body as an artistic medium. The publication features essays by Michael Asbury, Claudia Calirman, Gabriela Rangel, and Judith Rodenbeck that analyze Antonio Manuel's work, showing his insertion in the repressive political environment in Brazil at that time and in the broad theoretical discourse of the period around conceptual art and body art as international phenomena. An interview with Antonio Manuel conducted by Beverly Adams and a text written by the artist exploring the series Urnas quentes [Warm Urns] are also included in the book. The reader also finds facsimile reproductions of A arma fálica [The Phallic Weapon], a printed soap opera with the participation of Hélio Oiticica, Tineca, and Paulo, texts written in collaboration with Lygia Pape, photographs by Kiko (Marcos Lins Andrade), and graphic design project by Luciano Figueiredo.
 
The publication accompanies a homonymous exhibition, the artist's first solo show in the United States, presented at the Americas Society Art Gallery. It was edited in partnership between the Americas Society and Associação para o Patronato Contemporâneo (APC).
