documenta 14 : daybook : Athens, 8 April-Kassel, 17 September 2017 by Museum Fridericianum( )

21 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The documenta 14 guide will take the form of a daybook, emphasizing the 163 calendar days of the exhibitions in Athens and Kassel--a first-time extension of the usual 100-day project of past documenta--and the personal and subjective nature of the spectator's relationship to them. Each documenta 14 artist will be granted a day in this daybook, which will be accompanied by a newly commissioned text on that artist's practice, as well as an image of artwork commissioned by the artist specifically for the publication. The critical texts will be authored by a wide variety of practitioners--critics, curators, novelists, historians, and poets--and the images will be singular and created by the artists especially for the daybook itself
Paweł Althamer by Roman Kurzmeyer( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pawel Althamer (b.1967) originally trained as a sculptor, but his work also bears the marks of relational art - social, collaborative, participatory art that is concerned less with producing objects than with composing human interactions. Often dematerialized to the point of invisibility, this work also increasingly enlists human participants, often in what the artist describes as 'reality directed'

Paulina Olowska by Paulina Ołowska( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de JRP-Ringier: "Paulina Olowska's work demonstrates an interest on Communist Poland's fascination with Western consumerism and celebrates the spirit and stylish improvisations of the "Applied Fantastic"-a term coined by Polish writer Leopold Tyrmand in 1954, to describe the vernacular re-creations of Western styles. In her paintings, collages, and knitted works, Olowska incorporates text and graphics from found illustrations or images that have a decidedly "behind the Iron Curtain" look, while paying tribute to American Pattern and Decoration art of the 1970s and its use of non-traditional contemporary art mediums such as tiles and textiles. This publication is the first monograph to offer an overview of her work. It includes an interview with Adam Szymczyk and an essay by Jan Verwoert. Olowska, who lives and works in the Polish countryside, has had recent one-person and project exhibitions at MoMA, New York (2011),Tramway, Glasgow (2010); Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (2009); DAAD Galerie, Berlin (2008); and Portikus, Frankfurt (2007). Published in collaboration with Kunsthalle Basel."
Monika Sosnowska by Monika Sosnowska( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication offers a definitive, career-spanning exploration of Polish sculptor Monika Sosnowska (born 1972), known for manipulating ordinary forms and spaces into fascinating and often disorienting new configurations. Freed from their original functionality, her architectonic works and environments evoke a moment when, as she puts it, "architectural space begins to take on the characteristics of mental space." Optical illusions, shifts in scale, mazes, and other such techniques that challenge the intellect of the viewer are motifs throughout her oeuvre. Published for an exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum, this volume documents a decade's worth of Sosnowska's objects, installations and exhibitions and features new scholarship by Maria Gough, Adam Szymczyk and Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson. It is the most comprehensive book on the artist in English to date
