Paul Klee : the abstract dimension by Paul Klee( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Klee (1879?1940) is one of the most influential painters of European modernism. With an oeuvre comprising nearly ten thousand works, numerous solo and group exhibitions of his work have been mounted well beyond his lifetime. To this very day, the intense interest in his work has not waned. And yet there has never been an exhibition that has extensively examined Klee?s relationship to abstraction. The show at the Fondation Beyeler?along with the accompanying catalogue, which is ?underscored? by insightful texts from well-known authors?is closing this gap. Four groups of themes?nature, architecture, painting, and graphic characters?make up the golden thread through Klee?s body of work whose formal repertoire repeatedly oscillates between the semi-representational and the absolute abstract, and which are examined here in separate chapters. Thus one not only gains in-depth insight into Klee?s involvement with abstraction?new references to his contemporaries, as well as to artists of later generations, are unveiled.00Exhibition: Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland (01.10.2017?21.01.2018)

Jenny Holzer : for Frankfurt( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jenny Holzer's portrayal of the city of Frankfurt am Main is one possible response to the loss of the single word within the everyday noise of words. The American artist is famous internationally for her conceptual, poetic works located in the urban space. She shapes a language of dialogue in her light projections that look at the major issues of life that could be engulfed by the bustle of noise and light. This publication documents "For Frankfurt" via many brilliant photographs and the accompanying text provides insight into the conceptual background of the portrayal.

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over thirty years, Jenny Holzer's work has paired the use of text and the centrality of installation to exaimen emotional and societal realities. Her choice of forms and media brings a sensate experience to the multiple voices, opinions, and attitudes that shape everyday life. With a turn in practice towards a greater visual and environmental presence, Holzer joins political bravura and formal beauty, sensitivity, and power. This publication centers on Jenny Holzer's work from 1990 to the present."--Jacket
