Failure by Lisa Le Feuvre( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amidst current global uncertainty failure has become a central subject of investigation in recent art. Artists have actively claimed the space of failure to propose a resistant view of the world. Here success is deemed overrated, doubt embraced, experimentation encouraged and risk considered a viable position. Between the poles of success and failure lies a productive space where paradox rules and dogma is refused. This anthology establishes failure as a core concern in contemporary cultural production. Failure is one of a series documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art."

Hannah Höch by Hannah Höch( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book on the celebrated Dada artist Hannah Höch explores her use of collage as the artistic medium of choice for both satire and poetic beauty. World-renowned for her work during the Weimar period, Hannah Höch was a pioneer in many aspects, both artistic and cultural. She was the crucial female artist of the Berlin Dada movement - the riotous movement that deconstructed sound, language, and images to re-assemble them into new objects, texts and meanings. Höch was a pivotal force in the development of collage, paving the way for today's ubiquitous image editing techniques. A determined believer in artistic freedom, Höch questioned conventional concepts of partnership, beauty and the making of art, her work presenting acute critiques of racial and social stereotypes, particularly that of her native Germany. Focusing on Höch's collages, this book examines the artist's career from the 1910s to the 1970s, charting her oeuvre from early works influenced by fashion and mass media, through to her later compositions of lyrical abstraction. It reveals her rapid development of a personal style, which was both humorous and often moving, but also offered critical commentary on society at a time of tremendous social change."--Publisher's description

Hans Bellmer by Hans Bellmer( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La fascinación surrealista por muñecas y máquinas semejantes al hombre resulta patente en la obra de Bellmer, contrario al ideal ario del nazismo, como expresan sus muñecas distorsionadas de cera, madera, lino, escayola y goma. La muestra presenta dibujos, litografías y fotografías que reflejan las obsesiones eróticas del artista, fuertemente influido por las teorías freudianas, e investigan las teorías psicoanalíticas sobre la histeria y la transferencia, revelando una exploración peculiar de la relación entre cuerpo y lenguaje ("... el cuerpo es comparable a una frase que te invita a desarticularla...")
Faces in the crowd : picturing modern life from Manet to today = volti nella folla : immagini dell vita moderna da Manet a oggi by Whitechapel Art Gallery( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking Edouard Manet as its starting point and moving through the work of major painters and sculptors such as Ensor, Boccioni, Duchamp, Kollwitz, Kirchner, Beckmann, Magritte, Picasso, Hopper, Warhol, Hamilton, Pistoletto, Richter, Acconci, Sherman, Schutte, Ofili and Kentridge, as well as photographers such as Atget, Brassai, Evans, Levitt, Arnold, Weegee, Giacomelli, Goldin and Keita, Faces in the Crowd traces a history of avant-garde figuration from the 1870s to today through the works of one hundred artists." "The great revolutions in twentieth century art tend to be associated with abstraction. Yet there is a parallel history, which is equally radical. Manet's vividly realist scenarios or Jeff Wall's cinematic tableaux offer a compelling pictorial illusion of the modern. By contrast, Edvard Munch or Francis Bacon present a tortured or exhilarated inner life. For Alexander Rodchenko, the figure can be an agent of social change, revolutionary transgressive or symbolic." "This catalogue accompanies the exhibition organised by the Whitechapel Gallery and the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art."--BOOK JACKET

14 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adventures of the black square : abstract art and society 1915-2015 by Iwona Blazwick( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring how the universal visual language of geometric abstraction was influenced by different societies, this volume also demonstrates how the movement's revolutionary aesthetic continues to impact culture around the globe. It traces a century of abstract art from 1915 to the present day, celebrating the accomplishments of both men and women and includes sculpture, film, photography and painting. Organised around four distinct themes - communication, architectonics, utopia and everyday life - the book presents a chronological survey from Russia to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, Africa, South America, and the US. Each of the 100 works is featured in double-page spreads with brief artist biographies. Essays by Tanya Barson, Briony Fer, Tom McDonough, and Joshua Jiang, contextualize the various geographic and aesthetic stages of the development of geometric abstraction
