1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Into Me/Out of Me is about the imagined, descriptive and performative acts of passing into, through and out of the human body. This book focuses on the primordial relationship between the internal and the external metabolism (eating, drinking, excreting), reproduction (intercourse, birth), and violence (shooting, impaling, perforation). Into Me/Out of Me brings together explorations and visualizations of these three processes, which deal with the wet and the dry, the inner and the outer surfaces of the body, and the material world. Spanning over 40 years and featuring an international group of more than 130 artists, Into Me/Out of Me employs a wide range of media to illuminate the literal and metaphorical ways that humans interact with each other and material matter. These daily exchanges are presented within the frameworks of natural science, historical and mythological confrontations, ritualistic practices, and self-exploration."--BOOK JACKET

Julia Stoschek Collection ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Destroy, She Said' was the title of the first exhibition in the Julia Stoschek Collection, the opening of which prompted a great deal of media coverage last summer in Düsseldorf. One of the show's distinctive features was that the exhibition spaces were made to measure for a total of forty artistic positions by the Berlin architects Kühn Malvezzi, thus demonstrating the potential for the presentation of contemporary media-supported art. This volume documents the exhibition and its remarkable architectural concept. All of the works - by artists such as Doug Aitken, Paul Chan, Robert Smithson, Monica Bonvicini, Natasha Sadr Hagidhian, Dara Birnbaum, Klara Liden, and Olafur Eliasson - are presented in texts and illustrations and situated in the larger context of this exquisite private collection. The book is completed by Daniel Birnbaum's essay on current time-based art and crucial aspects of selected works from the Julia Stoschek Collection as well as by Kaye Geipel's text dealing with the history and architecture of the century-old industrial building--Publisher's website
