  • Julian IrlingerProps
    Editor: Julian Irlinger
    Publisher: Spector Books
    Props deals with the relationship between the economy, the public sphere, and art in the digital age. The book shows montaged images of the inside of the Frick Collection in New York, which is adorned with art and pieces of furniture. The collection was made accessible to the public after the death of its owner Henry Clay Frick. Julian Irlinger superimposes pictures drawn from the stock of images generated by two different virtual tours through the collection in the museum. He uses shots by a professional photographer that were commissioned by the Frick Collection and combines them with other images from a Google service team that have been published on their own platforms. Irlinger overlays a shot of a photographer with an almost identical picture from Google. The differences between a painstaking and cheap approach to the production of images are clearly visible: they symbolize the different economic interests of the people who have commissioned them.

  • Julian IrlingerFragments of a Crisis
    Editor: Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, René Zechlin
    Publisher: Spector Books
    In Fragments of a Crisis untersucht Julian Irlinger das Verhältnis von Ästhetik und Ideologie anhand künstlerischer Arbeit in der Weimarer Republik. Sein Ausgangsmaterial ist Notgeld, das während der Inflation (1918 - 1923) parallel zur offiziellen Währung ausgegeben wurde. Die Grafiken auf den Scheinen wurden von KünstlerInnen gestaltet, die in der Kunstgeschichte weitestgehend unbeachtet sind. Mit gescannten Ausschnitten von Notgeld entwickelt Julian Irlinger eine Methode des Zeigens, die die Dialektik der Bilder betont. Notgeld wird zu einer Form künstlerischer Arbeit, das die Krise, die sie hervorgebracht hat, thematisiert und versucht, sich an ein politisches Unterbewusstsein anzunähern. Der theoretische Text über Notgeld von Nora M. Alter ist Teil der Arbeit. Fragments of a Crisiserscheint anläßlich der gleichnamigen Ausstellung von Julian Irlinger in der Rudolph-Scharpf-Galerie des Wilhelm-Hack-Museum Ludwigshafen, 23. Februar – 28. April 2019.

  • 2018Gordon Matta-ClarkCUTTING MATTA-CLARK: THE ANARCHITECTURE INVESTIGATION
    Editor: Mark Wigley
    Publisher: Lars Müller Publishers
    The Anarchitecture group show at the fabled 112 Greene Street gallery – an artistic epicenter of New York’s downtown scene in the 1970s – in March 1974 has been the subject of an enduring discussion, despite a complete lack of documentation about it. Anarchitecture, a collective challenging all conventional understandings of architecture, has become a foundational myth, but one that remains to be properly understood. Cutting Matta-Clark investigates the group through extensive interviews with the protagonists and a dossier of all the available evidence.

  • 2017Leunora SalihuLeunora Salihu
    Publisher: Kerber Verlag
    This first publication on the oeuvre of the sculptor Leunora Salihu, who was born in Pristina in 1977, provides an extensive presentation of her artistic development up to now. Salihu already started out on her very individual path early on and is still following it today: her ceramic sculptures, her spatial bodies and room installations, which plumb the possibilities and limits of movement using the principle of repeating organic and constructive form elements, are created based on an unusual and multilayered inventiveness and are already today regarded as an important contribution to contemporary sculpture.

    The copious photographs are supplemented by an essay by Friedrich Meschede and an interview with the artist by Julia Wallner.

  • Leunora SalihuGravity on a Journey
    Editor: Kunstsammlung Nordrhein, Leunora Salihu
    Publisher: Gestalten
    Bundled Energy and Enormous Power As a sculptor, Leunora Salihu (born 1977 in Pristina, Kosovo, lives and works in Düsseldorf) has developed a distinctive artistic language. In her practice she uses a wide range of materials, including clay, wood, multiplex boards, or plastic, allowing the works to enter into a dialogue with each other in unusual ways. The artist deals with movement in a static form, with the affinity between the interior and the exterior, with apparent functionality, and with the relationship between art and everyday objects. Associations with industry, engineering, architecture, and literature are evoked. Franz Kafka and his literary dealings with spaces have long been a source of inspiration for the artist. 'I'm looking for something extraordinary in form and material, paired with the temporal aspects of movement. Condensing such contrasts into a clear image is appealing to me,' clarified the artist during an interview. This book includes the newest works by Leunora Salihu, developed by her for her eponymous exhibition in the Nordrhein-Westfalen K 21 Ständehaus. It contains an introduction by Thomas A. Lange and Anette Kruszyn as well as a text from Susanne Meyer-Büser.

    Editor: Oliver Basciano, Idris Khan
    Publisher: Hatje Cantz Verlag
    Wenn die Zeit zu einem einzigen Moment zusammenschrumpfen würde, sähe die Welt vielleicht aus wie eine Arbeit von Idris Khan. Der 1978 in London geborene Künstler, der gerade einen rasanten Aufstieg in der Kunstwelt erlebt, arbeitet fotografisch, skulptural oder installativ, er malt und filmt, aber immer schichtet er verschiedene Medien, zum Beispiel jede Seite des Korans, die Noten jeder Beethovensonate oder jede Postkarte von JMW Turner aus der Tate Britain so übereinander, dass eine Verdichtung der Farben und Formen bis hin zur Abstraktion entsteht. Der britische Guardian bezeichnete Khans Arbeiten als »Experimente verdichteter Erinnerungen«. Der englischsprachige Katalog von The New Art Gallery Walsall bildet die gesamte Palette des Schaffens von Khan ab und zeigt den meditativen, aber auch monumentalen Charakter seiner Arbeiten.

    Bekannt geworden ist Sieverding durch die beispiellose Konsequenz, mit der sie filmisch und fotografisch ihr zum Teil extrem vergrößertes und auf vielfältige Weise manipuliertes Porträt seit den 1960er-Jahren einsetzt. Ab den 1970er-Jahren erarbeitet sie großformatige Montagen zur Weltlage, 1977 auf der documenta 6 erstmals international veröffentlicht. Dabei hinterfragt sie die beschleunigten Bildprozesse der Gegenwart kritisch im Sinne einer Verantwortung auch sich selbst gegenüber. In Werkabbildungen, Details und Installationsfotos sowie Texten zu Mediennutzung, Selbstbildnis sowie analoger und digitaler Fotografie wird ihr Werk umfassend beleuchtet.

  • Iris SchomakerCome To The Edge
    Editor: Michael Wilson
    Publisher: Reflex Art Gallery Amsterdam
    The German artist has garnered international acclaim for her expressive large-scale watercolour and oil works on paper featuring figures in various states of repose.

    “My interest is in the private moment,” says Schomaker of the theme that has been preoccupying her. But this is not voyeurism, in the traditional sense – “It is more like a sudden glimpse – something unexpected. These figures do not offer contact. Their faces are blank, vanishing.” This blankness allows us to project on to the image, their very anonymity an invitation to the viewer to bring something of their own. Furthermore, the larger-than-life scale draws us in, enveloping us. Being in the room surrounded by these figures is a powerfully immersive, contemplative experience.

    Editor: Antonio Sergio Bessa, Jessamyn Fiore
    Publisher: Yale University Press
    This revealing book looks at the groundbreaking work of Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978), whose socially conscious practice blurred the boundaries between contemporary art and architecture. After completing a degree in architecture at Cornell University, Matta-Clark returned to his home city of New York. There he employed the term "anarchitecture," combining "anarchy" and "architecture," to describe the site-specific works he initially realized in the South Bronx.

  • 2016Julian IrlingerByproducts / Matters
    Editor: Julian Irlinger
    Publisher: Spectormag
    The digitalization of museums is a global process that is changing our perception of these institutions. Museums, which used to guarantee that their exhibits could be appreciated in isolation, have now become accessible online 24/7. In Byproducts / Matters, Julian Irlinger works with the images that are produced via this process. Taking advantage of virtual museum tours, he uses screenshots to record snippets of the interior spaces, showing zoomed-in details of high-resolution art reproductions. The incidental becomes the image motif. The pictures display pixelated works of art, cleaning utensils that have been set aside, or the reflections of studio lights on the painting's varnish. The artist's books Byproducts and Matters are published as a double volume, creating their own spaces for the contexts and narratives associated with viewing art today.

    Editor: Stephen Willats
    Publisher: Uniformbooks
    This book presents a wide selection of interviews and photographs from the collaborations between Willats and residents in the many housing estate projects he makes. The first-hand observations and individual opinions, from the past four decades, record a variety of attitudes and perceptions towards the physical reality of their surroundings. Created outside of the norms and conventions of an object-based art world, the projects in this book, mainly on estates in and around London, but also in Bath, Leeds, Milton Keynes and Oxford, highlight the realities of everyday life in both tower blocks and low-rise planned housing.

Also covering some of his most celebrated public interventions such as "The Cloud" and "The Skoghall Konsthall" as well as many of his lesser-known but milestone earliest works from Chile, this publication stands as the most encompassing survey yet of Jaar's cross-disciplinary, cross-border practice. Also included is the Adrienne Rich poem after which the exhibition was titled, "Tonight No Poetry Will Serve," an important source of inspiration for the artist.

    Editor: Jonathan Fineberg
    Publisher: Parrish Museum of Art
    Alice Aycock (b. 1946) emerged onto the New York art scene in the 1970s and is best known for her large-scale public sculptures that often combine an industrial appearance with references to weightlessness as well as to science and cosmology. Aycock also has embraced the practice of drawing throughout her enormously productive career. Alice Aycock: Drawingsis the first exploration of her spectacular drawings, which include elements of mirage, fantasy, and science, and evoke both abstract thinking and bodily sensation. The works on paper featured in this handsome volume highlight the major themes that have governed her artistic practice: the role of architecture as a founding point of reference; the importance of mechanics and structure; and references to nature. As author Jonathan Fineberg demonstrates, Aycock is an artist who thinks on paper. Her works are often equal parts engineering plan and science fiction imagining. Visualizing such contradictions allows us to, in her words, transport ourselves farther into another place.

"In this sense manufacturing or building skills are of most interest to me. I begin by shaping stuff ... and continue by developing the form." Published in Richter's handsome series of sculptors' writings, this volume gathers texts written between 1970 and 2012, including statements and accounts of works made, walks taken, reflections on materials, notes on public projects, a dialogue with curator Lynn Cooke, an interview with artist Ian McKeever and essays on a variety of subjects from television and Japanese films to artists and writers as diverse as Nicolas Poussin, Jacqui Poncelet, Rainer Maria Rilke, Toni Grand, Donald Judd and Anish Kapoor.

    Editor: Galerie Thomas Schulte
    Publisher: The Greenbox
    What actually is represented in her paintings remains secondary to Iris Schomaker’s oeuvre: Her work is primarily about the process of representation, about exploring painterly possibilities and the reproduction of atmospheric content. Schomaker finds her own original visual language in the tension between figurative representation and painterly abstraction. The paintings are just as much about the process of capturing something in a drawing and the discovery of a painterly composition, as they are about the motif itself and its atmospheric and physical qualities.

    Speak More Truth documents some of Schomaker’s recent works. With a text by Dominic Eichler.

His polemic takes ideas beyond the norms and conventions of the object-based art world, to explore possibilities inherent within communal groups. This manual, which includes texts, interviews and artwork from five decades of practice, is intended as a tool for any artist or practitioner looking to find a meaningful relationship with contemporary society. It proclaims, and argues for, a culture that promotes the fluid, transient, relative and complex society from which it stems.

    Editor: Rhea Anastas, Allan McCollum
    Publisher: JRP Ringier Kunstverlag
    Since the late 1970s, Allan McCollum (*1944, Los Angeles, lives in New York) has addressed the production, distribution, acquisition, display, and reading of the artwork. Art as a symbol of social and economic status, and thus the museum and the commercial gallery as authorities, have been the focus of his work from his first "Surrogate Paintings" (1978–1982), his "Individual Works" (1987–1989), his recent "Shapes Project" (since 2005), through the famous series of "Plaster Surrogates" (started in 1982), "Perpetual Photos" (since 1981), and "Perfect Vehicles" (since 1986), as well as in collaborations with Louise Lawler and Laurie Simmons. In the 1990s, the artist's "art objects" were replaced by found objects belonging to a situated context and community (just as was the art itself), in an effort to explore local micro-politics and understand how his projects might develop in interaction with specific milieus. Thus, his constant use of strategies of multiplication, his examination of the museum as a discursive agent, and his recurrent interest in notions of display, as well as his attempts to find a generic form for any purpose, were entirely reconfigured by this displacement of context. Working with regional museums, heterogeneous audiences, and references ranging from paleontology to mineralogy, Allan McCollum has built a very strong and intriguing body of works that has remained, for some part, unknown to (or at least unseen by) the art world.

  • 2010Gordon Matta-ClarkMoment to Moment: Space
    Editor: Peter Fend, Dan Graham
    Publisher: Verlag für moderne Kunst
    With his astounding building cuts and intersects, Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978) opened up elegant geometries in the very structures that seem most substantial and most authoritative in urban existence, revealing the alienations of the urban fabric as convenient fictions and allowing life to flow into the most inhospitable and self-contained of buildings. One of his favorite responses to a work came from a Parisian concierge: "I see the purpose for that hole--it is an experiment in bringing light and air into spaces that never had enough of either." Throughout his all-too-brief career, Matta-Clark undertook civic aeration on many fronts, cofounding the now legendary Food Restaurant in 1971, buying up empty lots in Queens and evolving his theory of "anarchitecture" in films, photomontages and numerous writings and drawings. Anarchitecture redefined negative space in art as a political act, distinguishing itself from architecture by imagining a cure for its most pernicious effects. Gordon Matta-Clark: Moment to Moment offers a comprehensive overview of this courageous and liberating artist with a wealth of documentation and reproductions from across Matta-Clark's oeuvre, as well as critical commentary from Philip Ursprung, Angela Lammert, Hubertus von Amelunxen, Dan Graham and others.

    Editor: Doris Von Drathen
    Publisher: Charta
    The pictorial universe of Pat Steir is usually divided into different styles, epochs and categories. In this monograph, for the first time, art historian Doris von Drathen traces a logical line of thought that runs through the whole oeuvre, from the artist's earliest works to her most recent; although richly diverse, the paintings are all linked by an underlying investigation into the illusion of reality and its perception - a philosophical inquiry that perpetually asks: What do you see, and what do you think you see? Every painting is an exploration that questions the nature of what it is: a painting. In this way, over the past 40 years, Pat Steir has built up an essential body of work with a far-reaching contemporary influence - one that might best be described as "a school for seeing."

    A few years ago, The New York Times's Ken Johnson wrote of a series of Pat Steir paintings that "Beauty and Intellect join forces" in them, and that "what saves them from being just pretty pictures is the way they weave together several strands of meaning into a more complex conceptual fabric." Over the decades Steir has been carrying on just the sort of A-list painting career that pulls in accolades like that, putting up installations of her paintings in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. This monograph contains complete biographical and bibliographical information, an essay and an extensive interview between Doris von Drathen and Steir

    Alice Aycock's large, semi-architectural works deal with the interaction of structure, site, materials, and the psychophysical responses of the viewer. Offered meaningful but contradictory clues by both her images and her texts, viewers attempt to discover not only what the work of art conveys but how it communicates its contents, in investigations that parallel the artist's own. Robert Hobbs examines the development of Aycock's work over twenty years and her negotiation - along with other artists who came of age in the early 1970s - of the transition from modernism to postmodernism.
