Marlene Dumas : the image as burden by Marlene Dumas( Book )

22 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marlene Dumas (born in 1953 in Capetown, South Africa) is one of the most prominent and influential painters working today. In an era dominated by the mass media and a proliferation of images, her work is a testament to the meaning and potency of painting. Her intense, psychologically-charged works explores themes such as sexuality, love, death and guilt, often referencing art history and current affairs. Dumas often draws on her expansive visual archive for inspiration and uses the nuances of language to great effect. Her paintings and drawings are characterised by their extraordinary immediacy, expressiveness and sometimes controversial subject matter. This fully-illustrated exhibition catalogue accompanies a major exhibition at Tate Modern in 2015, curated by Tate, the Stendelijk Museum and the Fondation Beyeler in close collaboration with the artist. It will provide a survey of the artist's remarkable oeuvre from the mid-70s to the present day. It will include over 100 artworks displaying her most important paintings and drawings alongside lesser-known works from the early period of her career. Essays from a wide range of contributors will examine the key themes and motifs in her work and will reflect on Dumas' entire career

Wolfgang Tillmans by Wolfgang Tillmans( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In seinem künstlerischen Schaffen hat Wolfgang Tillmans (*1968 in Remscheid) das Medium der Fotografie in einer bisher nie gesehenen Weise revolutioniert und auf andere Medien hin geöffnet. Beginnend in den frühen 1990er-Jahren dokumentierte Tillmans in Szenen aus London, New York oder Berlin die Menschen und Situationen seines direkten Umfeldes und schuf so auf stilprägende Weise das Porträt einer neuen Generation. Seit den späten 1990er-Jahren fertigt Tillmans vermehrt kameralose, abstrakte Fotografien an, die aus einer direkten Arbeit mit und auf dem Fotopapier hervorgehen. Zum Teil erlangen diese Bilder einen skulpturalen, objekthaften Charakter. Auch im Ausstellungskontext entwickelte er neuartige, antihierarchische Installationsformen seiner Bilder im Raum. Anlässlich einer umfassenden Ausstellung von Tillmans’ Werk in der Basler Fondation Beyeler erscheint dieses Katalogbuch, welches seine Arbeiten in bisher nie gesehener Weise ordnet und gruppiert (Englische Ausgabe ISBN 978-3-7757-4329-7)
Alexander Calder & Fischli/Weiss by Alexander Calder( Book )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976) and Swiss artists Peter Fischli (*1952) and David Weiss (1946-2012) have sought and found quintessential ways of rendering a moment of fragile balance in art-a temporary state at once precarious and propitious. With Calder's groundbreaking invention of the mobile in the early nineteen thirties, and Fischli/Weiss's collaborative creative work from 1979 onwards, these artists each lent the theme of fragile balance an iconic form of a very different kind. At first glance, both positions could hardly be more different ; later, however, they proved to be two sides of the same coin, the result of different perspectives on the same theme at different times. The elaborately designed, richly illustrated catalogue with accompanying essays provides extensive insight into both oeuvres.
