"Icelandic culture is so strongly oriented towards language that the visual arts didn't truly begin to develop until the early twentieth century - which is remarkable for a Western country. This unique situation may explain the nature of the contemporary art scene in Iceland. Even though Conceptual art remains a considerable international influence, and globalization is most certainly affecting this isolated island in the North Atlantic, Icelandic art continues to develop at its own speed, marked by a playful creative energy and the pleasure of experimentation. Icelandic Art Today introduces 50 of the country's most important artists - including Finnbogi Petursson, Gabriela Fridriksdottir, Helgi Thorgils Fridjonsson, Icelandic Love Corporation, Katrin Sigurdardottir, Margret H. Blondal, Olafur Olafsson + Libia Castro, Ragnar Kjartansson and Ruri and Steingrimur Eyfjord - who have contributed to the contemporary landscape of Icelandic art from the 1970s through the present. Essays by historian and curator Christian Schoen, critic Halldor Bjorn Runolfsson and Director of the Reykjavik Art Museum Hafthor Yngvason trace the development of Iceland's avant-garde over the past 40 years."--BOOK JACKET

Publié à l'occasion du projet des artistes pour le Pavillon islandais de la 54e Biennale de Venise. Le travail du duo ibérico-islandais Libia Castro et Ólafur Ólafsson, développé en interaction spécifique avec les gens et les lieux qu'ils rencontrent dans le monde entier, peut être décrit comme une interprétation de la culture et des relations complexes entre les dimensions politiques, socio-économiques et individuelles qui la constituent.

Passage 2011 : ein aktionistisches, transalpines Drama = An actionistic transalpine drama by GÆG (Group of artists)( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein kleines rotes Boot in den Alpen - es steht auf einem Gletscher, umgeben von Bergriesen. Das war die Vision der beiden Münchner Aktionskünstler Wolfgang Aichner und Thomas Huber. Sie machten eine Kunstaktion daraus und brachten ihr selbst gebautes Boot zu Fuß von München über die Alpen bis nach Venedig. Das Projekt nannten sie "Passage 2011" und reichten es als offiziellen Beitrag auf der Biennale in Venedig ein. Der Hirmer Verlag veröffentlichte jetzt die spektakulären Fotos sowie den Reisebericht von der Überschreitung der Alpen mit dem Boot im Katalog 'Passage 2011. Ein aktionistisches, transalpines Drama'.0Exhibition: Kunsthalle Emden, Germany (6.5.-9.9.2012) / National Gallery of Iceland, Reykjavík, Iceland (28.9.-26.10.2013)
