Martin Kippenberger : the problem perspective by Martin Kippenberger( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martin Kippenberger (1953-1997) is a special case in art. His life and works were inextricably linked in a remarkable practice that centered on the role of the artist within both the culture and the system of art. With his larger-than-life persona, Kippenberger cast himself as impresario, entertainer, curator, bohemian, collector, architect, and publisher. He collected art, set up clothing companies and nightclubs, and ran art-world scams. Nothing was sacred to this iconoclast except the right to satisfy his enormous appetite for life, appropriate anything for his art, and create continual chaos around himself. This book, which accompanies the first major U.S. retrospective exhibition of Kippenberger's work, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, documents Kippenberger's extraordinary twenty-year career with works in many media - paintings, sculptures, works on paper, installations, photographs, collaborations with other artists, posters, postcards, books, and music. Among the major works reproduced are key selections from the I.N.P. Bilder (Is Not Embarrassing Pictures) and No Problem paintings of the 1980s; the landmark 1987 exhibition of sculpture "Peter. Die russische Stellung" ("Peter. The Russian Position"); self-portraits in a variety of media; Laterne an Betrunkene (Street Lamp for Drunks); the Raft of the Medusa cycle of the 1990s; the renowned Hotel drawings; and the monumental installation, The Happy End of Franz Kafka's "Amerika." Accompanying the artworks is an essay by exhibition curator Ann Goldstein; newly commissioned texts by art historian Pamela Lee, Kippenberger scholar Diedrich Diederichsen, and curator Ann Temkin; reprinted excerpts from a 1991 interview with Kippenberger by artist Jutta Koether; and an illustrated exhibition history, chronology, and bibliography. Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective offers readers the most comprehensive view yet of this legendary artist's body of work."--Jacket

Isa Genzken by Alex Farquharson( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Isa Genzken's work encompasses sculpture, collage, painting and photography. One of the leading artists to have emerged in Germany since the 1980s, Genzken is notable for the way she combines personal elements with references to architecture, modernism and art history. She is interested in the ruins of material culture, particularly architectural detritus, and the combination of materials in her work is remarkable, encompassing animal heads, fluorescent plastic, spray-painted pine cones, concrete blocks, glass, mirrored sheets, aeroplane windows and children's umbrellas, to name a few. Her work can be aesthetically brutal, as with her Empire/Vampire series (2003-5) - agglomerations of toys and unrelated found objects roughly splattered with paint - and strikingly beautiful, as with her New Buildings for Berlin (2001-4) - small, impeccable crafted glass and silicone skyscrapers. One of her best known and loved works, Rose (1993/7), is a public sculpture of a single long-stemmed rose made from enamelled stainless steel that towers eight metres above Leipzig's museum district Genzken has been exhibiting since the 1970s, and her work has appeared in many of the world's highest-profile exhibitions, including Documenta (1982, 1992 and 2002), the Venice Biennale (1982, 1993 and 2003), Skulptur Projekte in Munster (1987 and 1997) and the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh (2005)."--Jacket
Über Pop-Musik by Diedrich Diederichsen( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diedrich Diederichsen über Pop-Musik: das Opus magnum Ganze Generationskohorten von Pop-Fans hat er angeregt und aufgestört: Diedrich Diederichsen. Nun erscheint mit Über Pop-Musik das Ergebnis seines lebenslangen Nachdenkens über Pop. Über Pop-Musik ist ein kluges, ein kontroverses Buch, dessen Thesen ganze Gebäude eilig zusammengezimmerter Übereinkünfte zum Einsturz bringen werden. Pop-Musik, sagt Diederichsen, ist gar keine Musik. Musik ist bloß der Hintergrund für die viel tiefer liegenden, viel weiter ausstrahlenden Signale des Pop. Pop ist ein Hybrid aus Vorstellungen, Wünschen, Versprechungen. Er ist ein Feld für Posen und Pakte, für Totems und Tabubrüche. Der Autor bezieht seine Argumente aus Semiotik und Soziologie ebenso wie aus der Geschichte und Gegenwart der Pop-Kultur und aus den angrenzenden Gebieten Jazz, Kino, Oper. Es dürfte das erste Buch sein, das der ganzen Vielgestaltigkeit des Phänomens Rechnung trägt, und das einzige, in dem gleichzeitig Theodor W. Adorno und Congo Ashanti Roy auftreten. Und es ist ein sehr persönliches Buch. Diederichsen greift immer wieder auf die eigenen Erfahrungen zurück, sein Initiationserlebnis war ausgerechnet ein Konzert des bleichen Bluesrockers Johnny Winter. Was er über dessen Auftritt schreibt, gilt für viele, die nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg aufgewachsen sind: Pop hat "eingelöst, was wir alle immer schon geahnt hatten, aber als Kinder nie ganz genau wussten: dass es etwas gibt. Nicht, wovon Winter heulte, war wichtig, sondern dass in komischen Geräuschen ein Weg zur Welt war

Geoffrey Farmer by Geoffrey Farmer( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Sourcebook is a space of reflection occasioned by the exhibition. Three extraordinary essayists - Diedrich Diederichsen, Vanessa Desclaux and Thierry Davila -- were invited to encounter the artist's mercurial practice in different contexts. They speculate on his inventive approach to temporality, to the spaces of theater, film and performance, and to the workings of memory, meaning and art historical references. Farmer himself recomposes visual and texual fragments of his exhibition, which after a month of daily transformation came to be known as Forgetting Air
Körpertreffer Zur Ästhetik der nachpopulären Künste by Diedrich Diederichsen( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erst seit den 1960er Jahren widmen sich die Künste gezielt der technischen Klang- und Bildaufzeichnung. Wo vorher nur Slapstick und Surrealismus war, schießen nun Genres in großer Zahl aus dem Boden. Als behäbig erweist sich dabei eine Kulturkritik, die immer noch versucht, die Filme der Nouvelle Vague, das Cinéma Vérité, Punk, HipHop, Heavy Metal und Minimalismus, Fluxus, Performance Art, Pop Art, Nouveau Réalisme, Arte Povera, Soul-Musik und Concept Art entlang der Unterscheidung von E und U zu sortieren - als entweder hohe oder populäre Künste. In seinen Adorno-Vorlesungen zeigt Diedrich Diederichsen, dass ihr Gemeinsames viel entscheidender ist: das Bemühen, den verstörenden Effekt der Aufzeichnung und Wiedergabe von Körpern, Stimmen und anderen Realweltsplittern einzuarbeiten, zu verstärken, umzuleiten, der Kunst anzupassen oder die Kunst um den - sei es aggressiven oder zärtlichen - Effekt herum zu entwickeln. Im Lichte dieser Effekte von Phonographie und Photographie müssen alte Unterscheidungen über Bord geworfen und auch die Folgen von Kunst neu gedacht werden - egal, ob man Kinder schützen oder Erwachsene politisieren will
