Situation aesthetics : the work of Michael Asher by Kirsi Peltomäki ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Michael Asher doesn't make typical installations. Instead, he extracts his art from the institutions in which it is shown, culling it from collections, histories, or museums' own walls. Since the late 1960s, Asher has been creating situations that have not only taught us about the conditions and contexts of contemporary art, but have worked to define it." "In Situation Aesthetics, Kirsi Peltomaki examines Asher's practice by analyzing the social situations that the artist constructs in his work for viewers, participants, and institutional representatives (including gallery directors, curators, and other museum staff members). Drawing on art criticism, the reports of viewers and participants in Asher's projects, and the artist's own archives, Peltomaki offers a comprehensive account of Asher's work over the past four decades. Because of the intensely site-specific nature of this work, as well as the artist's refusal to reconstruct past works or mount retrospectives, many of the projects Peltomaki discusses are described here for the first time." "Asher's work has commonly been associated with minimalism, conceptual art, and, most frequently, institutional critique. Peltomaki takes a different perspective, focusing on the work's social dimension. Because Asher's installations typically address the given context - the situation - of their exhibition directly and exclusively, they cease to exist after the exhibitions end, leaving behind few material traces. By emphasizing the social and psychological sites of art rather than the production of autonomous art objects, Peltomaki argues, Asher constructs experientially complex situations that profoundly affect those who encounter them, bringing about both personal and institutional transformation."--Jacket
Video, architecture, television : writings on video and video works, 1970-1978 by Dan Graham ( Book )
8 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and German and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This title, published in 1979 and long since out of print. The original book was released in the series of publications Source Materials of the Contemporary Arts. The publication represents an important document in Dan Graham's artistic examination of the video medium. Graham's installations and performances with video from the years 1970-78 are documented with numerous illustrations, photos, and brief descriptions. In addition, the volume contains an essay by the artist in which he examines the various possibilities and forms of representation offered by the video medium, and draws the boundaries between these and representational spaces in television, film, or architecture. The book also offers contributions by Michael Asher and Dara Birnbaum, as well as an annex with a biography and bibliography"--Cover sleeve
