Ornament and abstraction : the dialogue between non-Western, modern and contemporary art by Markus Brüderlin( Book )
21 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 534 libraries worldwide
"This book is an in-depth study of this major theme in 20th century art history. It begins with the innovative pictorial conception of Philipp Otto Runge, whose early 19th century paintings featured the last genuine form in the history of ornament, the arabesque. The arabesque had an influence via Symbolism (Maurice Denis, Paul Gauguin) and Art Nouveau (Henry van de Velde, Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffmann) on painting's move towards abstraction (Vasily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Adolf Hoelzel), which resulted on the one hand in a non-figurative, geometric structure of lines (Mondrian), and on the other, in the swirls of Matisse and Jackson Pollock. Side by side with the "royal way" of Cubism, arabesque abstraction therefore opens up a second doorway to the world of non-figurative art." "Significant influences also result from the modern artists' preoccupation with the ornamentation found in distant cultures, such as Matisse with the Orient and Oceania, Ad Reinhardt with Asian culture, and American painting with pre-Columbian ornament (Josef Albers, Barnett Newman). Referring also to Minimalism, new media, digital technology, the Renaissance and the Rococo, the book celebrates the impact of ornament on abstract art, as well as showcasing a remarkable array of masterpieces."--Jacket
Frank Stella : the retrospective, works 1958-2012 by Frank Stella( Book )
10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
"This publication follows, for the first time, Frank Stella's artistic development over five decades, and documents the unique retrospective in the Kunst-museum Wolfsburg with numerous images of his paintings, reliefs, sculptures, models, and works on paper. Frank Stella (born 1936) is one of the last living heroes of American painting of the 1950s and the 1960s. With his turn "from Minimalism to Maximalism," he became one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. This catalogue offers a multifaceted overview of a fascinating oeuvre, providing new insights into Stella's work through unusual approaches. It also presents, for the first time, all the work series in an overview on four foldout pages."--Page 4 of cover

Anselm Kiefer : the seven heavenly palaces, 1973-2001 by Anselm Kiefer( Book )
10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
"The Austrian writer Christoph Ransmayr has contributed an inspired literary investigation of the work and life of this artist living near the French village of Barjac. He takes us through La Ribaute, the artist's studio compound, past glass houses and leaden installations, through poppy fields and dense scrub, through underground passages and containers filled with pictures and sculptures. Meanwhile, the photographer Thomas Flechtner has captured fleeting visual impressions of this creative terrain. Markus Bruderlin, Mark Rosenthal and Katharina Schmidt, each with a deep knowledge of Anselm Kiefer's work, have provided illuminating introductions to the individual chapters that go to make up this detailed compendium which, focusing on four major areas of Anselm Kiefer's work, offers the reader an insight into the specific emblematics used by this artist as well as into the process of his pictorial production and the many-faceted nature of his artistic output."--BOOK JACKET

ArchiSculpture : dialogues between architecture and sculpture from the eighteenth century to the present day by Archisculpture( Book )
17 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and German and held by 240 libraries worldwide
"Architects began modeling their buildings according to sculptural principles in the 1920s (Goetheanum). In view of recent developments in architecture, especially the digital, biomorphic projects of such blobmeisters as Greg Lynn and NOX, one is even prompted to ask whether the history of contemporary sculpture is not actually being written by the architecture of our time. This richly illustrated publication featuring some 370 images explores this largely overlooked phenomenon in a very unusual approach. The dialogue between these two fields of aesthetics is traced from the eighteenth century to the present in ten chapters, each presenting juxtapositions of sculptures and architectural models by outstanding sculptors and architects."--Jacket

The art of deceleration : motion and rest in art from Caspar David Friedrich to Ai Weiwei ( Book )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 199 libraries worldwide
The Art of Deceleration distills a theme that touches a nerve with society. Since the 19th century, the tempo of life has continuously increased up to "rushing stand still" (Paul Virilio). The longing for relaxation and contemplation grows at the same time. The exhibition project in the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg focuses on the contrapuntal phenomenon of motion and rest in art from the Romantic to classic modernism and the present day. From the beginning, the fascination for unleashed motion was accompanied by the search for an aesthetic of slowness. The Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg examines this dialectic in a comprehensive exhibition featuring circa 150 works by 80 artists. Artists of the exhibition: Josef Albers - Giacomo Balla - Joseph Beuys - Alexander Calder - Hussein Chalayan - Francesco Clemente - Giorgio de Chirico - Robert Delaunay - Marcel Duchamp - Caspar David Friedrich - Franz Gertsch - Douglas Gordon - Andreas Gursky - Jeppe Hein - Anselm Kiefer - Frantisek Kupka - El Lissitzky - Aristide Maillol - Kasimir Malewitsch - Christian Marclay - Kris Martin - Aernout Mik - Lazlo Moholy-Nagy - Giorgio Morandi - Bruce Nauman - Roman Opalka - Julian Opie - George Osodi - Nam June Paik - Julius Popp - Odilon Redon - Gerhard Richter - Auguste Rodin - Mark Rothko - Thomas Ruff - Jonathan Schipper - Jean Tinguely - William Turner - James Turrell - Cy Twombly - Lee Ufan - Fabienne Verdier - Bill Viola - Andy Warhol - Ai Weiwei - Zhou Xiaohu - and others

Rudolf Steiner and contemporary art by Mario Merz( Book )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
Ever since the Rudolf Steiner's panel drawings were first exhibited in a contemporary art context in the summer of 1992 at the Galerie Monika Sprüth in Cologne, they went on tour as the transmitter of an 'anthroposophy for the future' through the best known museums in the world. In addition to his paintings, drawings and sculptures, these panel pictures are clearly located at the junction between art and science, programmatically pointing to the key interrelationship between mankind and the cosmos. It was always Steiner's extraordinary way of seeing objects and non-objects that led to sustainable reform projects in such fields as agriculture, education and medicine. This book examines for the first time Anthroposophist thought as reflected in contemporary art and to what extent its integral concepts and aesthetic ideas are realized in the visual arts
Interieur, exterieur : living in art : from romantic interior painting to the home design of the future by exterieur Interieur( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 145 libraries worldwide
"Contemporary artist Andrea Zittel's A-Z Enterprise is an investigation into all aspects of daily life--including shelter, furniture and clothing, which she designs. Architect Marcel Breuer said of his 1966 Modern design for New York's Whitney Museum, "It should transform the vitality of the street into the sincerity and profundity of art." Charting the reciprocal relationship between art and design, this fascinating volume features paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, videos, digital animations, interiors and furniture by 68 artists, designers and architects, including Caspar David Friedrich, Henry van de Velde, Edvard Munch, Henri Matisse, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Zaha Hadid, Erwan Bouroullec and Tobias Rehberger. It highlights a trend, from Romanticism through the present, that has artists functioning as designers or architects while architects and designers are influenced by art."--Jacket

Kunst & Textil - Stoff als Material und Idee in der Moderne von Klimt bis heute : [Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, 12.10.2013-2.3.2014; Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, 21.3.2014-22.6.2014] by Markus Brüderlin( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 94 libraries worldwide
Die Digitalisierung der Welt scheint einen Abgleich mit der Hand zu benötigen. Allerorten wird gehäkelt, gestickt, gestrickt und gewebt. Die Grenzlinie zwischen Kunst und Kunsthandwerk scheint zu verwischen. Bereits 1878 beschrieb Gottfried Semper das Textile als Urform der Künste. Wiener Werkstätte und Bauhaus durchbrachen die Schranken, ein entscheidender Impuls für die Meister der Moderne. Faden, Gewebe, Netz und Muster sind gleichzeitig Grundlage, Ergebnis und Ideengeber, greifen auf Malerei, Skulptur, Installations- und Medienkunst über. Der opulent gestaltete Band offeriert einen künstlerischen und zugleich interkulturellen Dialog und stellt Werke von Gustav Klimt, Edgar Degas, Jackson Pollock, Eva Hesse, Chiharu Shiota oder Sergej Jensen historischen Textilien vergangener Jahrhunderte gegenüber. In interdisziplinären Textbeiträgen werden Material und Idee des Textilen umfassend diskutiert. Mit Werken von (Auswahl): Magdalena Abakanowicz, Anni Albers, Joseph Beuys, Louise Bourgeois, Edgar Degas, Sonia Delaunay, Lucio Fontana, Mona Hatoum, Eva Hesse, Josef Hoffmann, Sergej Jensen, Mike Kelley, Kimsooja, Paul Klee, Peter Kogler, Piero Manzoni, Agnes Martin, William Morris, Robert Morris, Blinky Palermo, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Chiharu Shiota, Yinka Shonibare, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Dorothea Tanning, Lenore Tawney, Rosemarie Trockel, Édouard Vuillard, Pae White
