Paul Thek in process by Susanne Neubauer( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1971, Harald Szeeman invited the American sculptor and installation pioneer Paul Thek (1933-1988) to contribute to documenta 5. Szeemann had titled one section of the exhibition 'Individual mythologies, ' describing a new kind of art structured around mythologies invented by artists, rather than by a culture. Thek's contribtion came to be seen as a paradigm of this trope. -- Paul Thek in process evolved out of the discovery of an unrealized publication project initiated while installing his first space-filling environment, Pyramid/A work in progress at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in the winter of 1971, which was to have been released for documenta 5. For this endeavor, an extraordinary number of images were taken-about 800-capturing the progress of the installation, the opening, and the final state of this pivotal work of 1970s installation art"--Page 4 of cover

1 edition published in 2012 in Polish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nine stories told by this exhibition concern the meeting of a photographer and an artist. Their collaboration was sometimes one-off, sometimes it would last for years, but it always resulted in common fruit: a work of art, a process, a shared world. We are interested in the working experience of these 'accomplices, ' and how their collaboration shaped the work that was being created"--Page 8
Paul Thek : from cross to crib by Paul Thek( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This publication is devoted to a little-known temporary artwork: in the winter of 1973/74 Paul Thek was a guest of the Lehmbruck-Museum in Duisburg. His expansive environment 'Ark, Pyramid - Christmas' ('The Manger') filled a whole room. It was the further development of his installation realized at the documenta 5 in Kassel (1972). This exhibition, organised by the director of the museum at the time, Siegfried Salzmann (1985-1993), was the fourth in Thek's series of atmospheric, large-scale projects in Europe, which engaged with individualised religious symbols. The festive period provided Thek with the occasion to present, for the first time, a self-written theatre piece in the form of a nativity play featuring children from Duisburg. A great quantity of original material and documents have been discovered in the museum's repository and enable a reconstruction of the exhibition in this book. Exhibition: Lehmbruck Museum Duisburg, Germany (27.04-28.07.2012)
