Ilya Kabakov by Boris Groĭs( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After spending some thirty years as an 'unofficial' artist behind the Iron Curtain of the former Soviet Union, Ilya Kabakov first came to the attention of the West in the 1980s. Today Kabakov is recognized as the most important Russian artist to have emerged in the late 20th century, with installations that speak as much about conditions in post-Stalinist Russia as they do about the human condition universally. His installations are, in some instances, akin to theatrical mise-en-scenes, reproducing a cramped communal apartment or a flooded art museum as a site of Schadenfreude-like comedies on human frustration and doomed aspirations. Alternating between light-hearted irony and genuine tragedy, Kabakov evokes a shadowy world lit by a twenty-watt bulb in which fable-like miracles might occur: a homespun cosmonaut may fly into space, or the radio/television aerial may spell out a poem against the sky. Ilya Kabakov's work has featured in the world's most significant surveys of contemporary art, among them Documenta IX (Kassel, Germany, 1992), and the Whitney Biennial (New York, 1997). In 1993 Kabakov represented Russia at the 45th Venice Biennale."--Jacket
Ilya Kabakov : the man who never threw anything away by Amei Wallach( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive monograph on an important contemporary artist, one who has come to represent the Russian avant-garde in the post-Stalinist era much in the way that Joseph Beuys was a stimulus for European art after World War II. In her fascinating text, Amei Wallach draws on extensive research and interviews with Kabakov and his circle over the past eight years, and puts the work in the context of the artist's life and the social, historical, cultural, and political forces that have shaped it - from his boyhood during Stalin's regime, to his obligatory career as a children's book illustrator in the official Artists' Union, to his involvement in Moscow's furtive and fertile underground avant-garde of artists and writers, to his more recent travels in the international art circuit. This groundbreaking volume also includes an introduction by Robert Storr, a curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and commentaries by the artist himself that accompany the 290 illustrations, including paintings, drawings, albums, and sketches and photographs of installations
Ilya Kabakov : the man who flew into space from his apartment by Boris Groĭs( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ilya Kabakov's installation presents an isolated dreamer who develops an impossible project - to fly alone in outer space. Having built a makeshift slingshot, the hero apparently catapults through the ceiling of his shabby room and vanishes into space. The book presents an individual appropriation of a collective Soviet project and the official Soviet propaganda connected to it - where cosmic vision and the political project of the communist revolution are seen as indissoluble."--Jacket

Ilya and Emilia Kabakov : not everyone will be taken into the future by Tate Modern (Gallery)( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, both from the former Soviet Union, are among the most celebrated contemporary artists of their generation. Widely known for their pioneering iconoclastic installations and use of fictional characters, the Kabakovs address universal themes such as utopia and the human condition. Drawing upon nearly six decades of work, this book charts the Kabakovs' incredible artistic journey, from the early paintings, drawings, albums and sculptures made by Ilya working as an unofficial artist in Moscow in the 1960s, through to his move to New York in the late 1980s - a turning point which marked the beginning of his collaboration with Emilia on immersive and often large-scale installations. Illustrated with over 100 works, and interspersed with excerpts from Ilya Kabakov's own writings, this beautiful book contextualises the Kabakovs' artistic practice and celebrates a career exemplified by innovation and originality."

12 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ilya Kabakov : Universalsystem zur Darstellung von allem = A universal system for depicting everything by Ilʹi︠a︡ Iosifovich Kabakov( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in German and Undetermined and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this album, Ilya Kabakov takes up the position of a fictive artist who has become conscious of the shortcomings of people's everyday ability to see and recognize normalcy. Artists, especially those of the Russian avant-garde, have always, by means of art, attempted to appropriate divine (in)sight, to effect a simultaneous perception of all moments in time. The artist of this album has made divine insight, or the fourth dimension, his own. He sees the same things we do, but, in contrast to others, he sees them with the right perspective. Unfortunately, this perception is almost never successfully transmitted or shown, since to do so is merely to translate the unknown into familiar forms or images. Meanwhile, the inexpressible is not felt and the familiar goes unrecognized. The artist of this album, on the other hand, has just such a feeling for the unknown, the non-portrayable, and the inexpressible

Goshka Macuga : time as fabric by Goshka Macuga( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London-based artist 'Goshka Macuga' (born 1967) embraces diverse mediums--including sculpture, installation, architecture and design--to investigate how art has been used to rouse public debate and inspire social change. Macuga's 2016 exhibition at the New Museum, Goshka Macuga: Time as Fabric, brings together a theatrical environment and a selection of tapestries, which draw on the rich historical tradition of textiles and are often vast in scale. Drawn to textiles for their rich historical tradition, Macuga exploits the representative functions of the medium, which can be used to embody political messages while also maintaining tapestry's tactility and portability. This fully illustrated catalogue features an interview with the artist by Margot Norton and new reflections on Macuga's work by artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov and curator Grant Watson. Exhibition: The New Museum, NYC, USA (04.05.-26.06.2016)
