"The first exhibition in the JMKAC series investigating nonconventional photographic processes that have been used in lieu of what are commonly thought of as "normal": black-and-white (gelatin-silver prints), color (type C and Cibachrome), and instant (Polaroid) photography.

Arts/Industry : collaboration and revelation( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founded in 1974 as a one-month experiment to open up new opportunities for extraordinary artists, Arts/Industry brought together two spirited partners: the groundbreaking John Michael Kohler Arts Center, then in its infancy, and Kohler Co., a 100-year-old leader in the international plumbingware industry. The program took the ceramic arts community by storm and through the years transformed artists' interests and university curricula regarding clay from molds. Today, Arts/Industry is hailed as the most unusual and successful ongoing collaboration between the arts and industry in the U.S. Each year, approximately 16 artists worldwide are selected for two- to six-month residencies to explore new technologies as well as ways of thinking and to create whole new bodies of work and/or public commissions in Kohler Co.'s Pottery, Iron and Brass Foundries and Enamel Shop. Published on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of Arts/Industry, this landmark book presents a profusely illustrated history of the program from the perspective of its founder and director of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Ruth DeYoung Kohler, Kohler Co. Chairman and CEO Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., artists-in-residence, Kohler Co. industrial staff and art historians Ezra Shales and Glen Brown. Chapters explore some of the program's major emphases: experimentation, originality and multiplicity, the impact of the industrial setting on the artistic process and the interaction between artists and industrial artisans"--
Eugene Von Bruenchenhein : mythologies by Eugene Von Bruenchenhein( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the 1930s until his death in 1983, Eugene Von Bruenchenhein was a prolific artist, producing paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and poetry in his small Milwaukee home. His large and unusual body of work was unknown to anyone except his closest family and friends until after his death; he is now deservedly considered, according to Roberta Smith, "among the great American outsider artists." --Exhibition: John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, USA (25.06.2017 - 14.01.2018)
Visual paradox : truth and fiction in the photographic image( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Takes a critical look at photography's credibility as a simulacrum or a bona-fide representation of the truth. It challenges our common perception of the photograph as an unassailable representation of reality by presenting the work of contemporary American artists who call attention to the medium's inherently paradoxical nature--its ability to engage in outrageous fictions while preserving a demeanor of objectivity and truth. VISUAL PARADOX leads one through the rebellious early years of staged or directorial photography in the 1960s and ... the 1970s and 1980s ... also features both early and recent examples of conceptual photography, images that question the nature of photographic representation as well as the mechanisms of human perception. Finally, it explores a variety of current postmodern activities that use photography to expose the fictions of mass-media images, to investigate the paradoxical relationship between pictures and language, and to critique the ambiguity and paradoxes of representation itself."
