Wolfgang Tillmans by Peter Halley ( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Turner-prize winning Wolfgang Tillmans is a superstar of 1990s photography. This is the only book to cover his entire career, from the best-selling debut portraits in 1995 at the age of 24, to his most recent, abstract works. Large colour photographs such as Lutz and Alex Sitting in the Trees (1992), of a couple - naked save for their incongruous raincoats - perched in a tree are emblems of his generation. Tillmans has more recently expanded his practice to include found photography as well as large installations reminiscent of the collage techniques of the 1960s Conceptual artists." "American artist and theorist Peter Halley discusses with the artist his rapidly changing role, from mid 199Os Wunderkind to established master of the 'new photography' today. German critic Jan Verwoert surveys the artist's many genres and styles, spanning abstract and figurative imagery. Japanese critic and curator Midori Matsui analyses in her Focus a single project, Concorde (1997), a room-size installation and artist's book which records the daily passing of this epoch-making aeroplane. Extracts from a nineteenth-century Quaker text by Caroline Stephen on divine inspiration comprise the Artist's Choice. In the Artist's Writings Wolfgang Tillmans' art is reflected in his diary entries, fragments of text from his installations and project notes."--BOOK JACKET

Heute. Malerei ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Painting has asserted itself once again at the beginning of the twenty-first century, as it has done so many times over the course of history, in the face of a real world that is becoming more difficult to grasp by the day. No other artistic medium is as old as painting, which is separate from the real world and has completely autonomous possibilities. Painting creates its own subjects, its own space, illusions, sensuality and emotions, all of which are very individual. This book examines the process of painting as a field of study, and the picture that painting presents to us of the conflicting, irrevocable and complex relationship between man and the world. The authors' texts in 'HEUTE. MALEREI' (Today. Painting) present international points of view, not for the purposes of comparison, but to illustrate their individual particularities. However, even painting is subject to the challenges and crises of the media and commerce. 0Exhibition: Kunstmuseum ULF, Magdeburg, Germany (6.10.2012-17.2.2013)

The indiscipline of painting ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Indiscipline of Painting is an international group exhibition including works by forty-nine artists from the 1960s to now. Selected by British painter Daniel Sturgis, it considers how the languages of abstraction have remained urgent, relevant and critical as they have been revisited and reinvented by subsequent generations of artists over the last 50 years. It goes on to demonstrate the way in which the history and legacy of abstract painting continues to inspire artists working today. The contemporary position of abstract painting is problematic. It can be seen to be synonymous with a modernist moment that has long since passed, and an ideology which led the medium to stagnate in self-reflexivity and ideas of historical progression. The Indiscipline of Painting challenges such assumptions. It reveals how painting's modernist histories, languages and positions have continued to provoke ongoing dialogues with contemporary practitioners, even as painting's decline and death has been routinely and erroneously declared. The show brings together works by British, American and European artists made over the last five decades and features major new commissions and loans. It includes important works by Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Gerhard Richter and Bridget Riley alongside other lesser known artists such as Tomma Abts, Martin Barré, Mary Heilmann and Jeremy Moon
