Interiors and Interiority by Ewa Lajer-Burcharth( )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the historical connections between the notions of architectural interior and human interiority, subjective space and represented space, including virtual space. Covering the broadly understood modern period, from the 18th century to the present, the contributions examine models of understanding of interiority as these were developed in relation to the notions of space and spatial experience"--Page 4 of cover
Peter Fischli, David Weiss by Robert Fleck( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Fischli and David Weiss are Swiss artists who first began working together in the late 1970s. Their sculpture, video and photographic works all generate a unique atmosphere of concentration and relaxed pleasure. The mood of the work ranges from the humorous - a clay figure group of 1981, for example, entitled Mick Jagger and Brian Jones going home satisfied after composing 'I Can't Get No Satisfaction' - to the banal - a photographic series devoted to Airports - and even the apparently invisible - their Untitled installation simulating, through minutely detailed polyurethane sculptures, an unfinished exhibition site." "While Fischli and Weiss occupy the international art world's most prestigious levels - representing Switzerland at the 1995 Venice Biennale and returning eight years later to win the Leone d'Oro prize for their slideshow Will Happiness Find Me? - they remain an unpredictable force at the very cutting edge of new art. This is the first true monograph on this extraordinary pair, who have exhibited worldwide, and whose solo exhibitions include the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (1992), the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1988), and Tate Modern, London (2006)." "In his Survey, French critic and curator Robert Fleck looks at Fischli and Weiss' ability to resist conventional artistic categories, crossing fluidly between sculpture, installation, photography and the moving image. In the Interview Swiss critic Beate Sontgen discusses with the artists notions of sincerity and illusion, and examines the question of how literally viewers are asked to read their work. Noted art critic and leading authority on Fischli and Weiss Professor Arthur C. Danto examines in the Focus the immensely popular The Way Things Go, offering a new perspective on this well-known film. For Artists' Choice Fischli and Weiss have chosen a text by Robert Walser on the pleasure of walking that mirrors their own meanderings. Artists' Writings include unpublished scripts from early video works and a 1996 interview with the artist Rirkrit Tiravanija."--Jacket
Andreas Gursky by Andreas Gursky( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famed worldwide for his epically proportioned photographs, Andreas Gursky is one of very few contemporary artists able to represent cultures of excessive information--which he does through images of supermarket wares, crowds, trash, architecture and nature. The extreme detail of Gursky's final image--achieved by digital restructuring--produces a vertiginous effect on the viewer, as it oscillates between total representation and total abstraction. It could be said that Gursky updates the eighteenth-century sublime for our times. This publication surveys the artist's most recent creations, on display at the renowned Kunstmuseum Basel throughout the winter of 2007/2008. Two new groups of works in particular, one on Formula 1 races and the other on the famous Arirang Festival (a closely choreographed mass spectacle in North Korea's capital of Pyongyang), are gathered here."--Publisher description

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and German and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francesca Woodman : works from the Sammlung Verbund by Francesca Woodman( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph on Francesca Woodman (1958--1981), the most comprehensive to date, charts new approaches to her oeuvre. Whereas the evanescence of the female figure in the artist's photographs has often been read as an aesthetic anticipation of her suicide, the essays by publishers Gabriele Schor and Elisabeth Bronfen as well as those from Johannes Binotto, Abigail Solomon-Godeau and Beate Söntgen illustrate Woodman's passionate self-staging in the tradition of the tableau vivant. Her poetic and metaphorical use of props (mirrors, gloves, rugs etc.) and her staging in a room, where the laws of geometry seem to no longer apply, are examined in the essays. The 80 photographs in the SAMMLUNG VERBUND collection can be seen for the first time in their original size."--Publisher infomation

I want to see how you see : Julia Stoschek Collection : Film, Installation, Fotografie( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibition at the Hamburg Deichtorhallen will be the first extensive presentation of the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION shown in the context of a museum worldwide. The exhibition, which will commence April 16, 2010, will feature 65 works by 54 artists from this very young private collection in a space extending of over 3,000 square meters. The main focus of the presentation will be on film and video works produced in the last 40 years, a time range which applies to the entire Julia Stoschek Collection. Classics of video art, such as Marina Abramovic's Art must be beautiful/ Artist must be beautiful dating from 1975-76, Vito Acconci's Opening s (1970) and Chris Burden's Shoot (1971) are conjoined with more recent works of younger artists, giving viewers the opportunity to relate to the history of the still rather young genre of video art. The majority of the works were actually produced after 2000. They range from lyrical pieces such as Heike Baranowsky's Mondfahrt and complex animation films such as Björk's Wanderlust in 3D up to elaborate spatial installations by artists such as Monica Bonvicini, Anthony McCall, and Nathalie Djurberg. The video works are accompanied by sculptures (e.g., by Nandipha Mntambo), photographic works (e.g., by Thomas Demand, Taryn Simon, Thomas Ruff) and installations (e.g., by Jeppe Hein). The title of the exhibition I Want To See How You See was derived from the work in the show by Pipilotti Rist (2003) of the same name. Most of the presented works reflect the production process or question the validity of the image via the staged realites generated in the realms of film or video. A recurring subject is the image of women as conveyed by the mass media.--Press release
