Rebecca Horn : the glance of infinity by Rebecca Horn( Book )

Rebecca Horn is a multi-talented artist whose kinetic sculptures, films and installations have contributed to her unique international reputation. Her surreal installations and objects work as metaphors; often playfully erotic, they arouse curiosity and childlike amazement, yet also subconsciously evoke fear and uncertainty Glance of Infinity is a comprehensive survey of Rebecca Horn's work from 1970 up to the present day, including her most recently exhibited works at this year's Venice Biennale, for the new building of the Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover, and in the Munster Skulptur Projekte in Munster 1997. This full scale monograph includes an interview with the artist, and essays by Brace W. Ferguson, Lynne Cooke, Doris von Drahten and Rebecca Horn, as well as a comprehensive index. Beautifully designed and printed, it constitutes an invaluable work of reference and presents a complete visual documentation of the development of one of our most important contemporary artists

Made in Germany( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Made in Germany offers a comprehensive survey of contemporary art in Germany. At its core are fifty-two young artists living and working in Germany, about half of whom are from abroad and all of whom are among the promising newcomers of the international art scene. In looking at questions of artistic identity, Made in Germany no longer simply considers the birthplace and biography of the artists, but also the context of where the work itself is produced. This is the first time that modern German art has been clearly examined to this great an extent as a weave of national particularities and cultural exchange." "This volume provides concise insights into the complete oeuvres of all the artists, as well as an informative comparison of the individual artists and each of their different regional and biographical contexts."--Jacket

Lewis Baltz by Lewis Baltz( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lewis Baltz did not only revive the American landscape photography, but also revolutionized the photographic pictorial language of the 1970s. Pictures of industrial landscapes, dreary suburban neighborhoods and wastelands depict radically new motifs, which for the first time were publicly presented in the renown exhibition 'New Topographics' in 1975. This catalogue was made in close collaboration with Lewis Baltz and approaches his work through various angles. The texts highlight how Baltz's photographies relate to the art of the 1970s, how he applies filmic strategies and why he does not call himself a photographer. In doing so, relevant new and underrepresented aspects of this conceptually driven artists are shown. Exhibition held at Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, Germany from Sept. 14-Nov. 4, 2012, Albertina, Wien, Mar. 1-June 2, 2013
