The essential Joseph Beuys by Alain Borer( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and Portuguese and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Essential Joseph Beuys was inspired by the idea of an imaginary Beuys exhibition unhampered by the problems connected with actual exhibitions, e.g., those of geography, insurance, fragility, and the concerns of lenders. The book provides a definitive survey of the artist's work in every medium in which he worked - drawings and watercolors, sculptures and objects, environments and actions, and multiples and printed works. Arranged chronologically and covering the four decades he was active (1945-1985), the book reflects the changes in Beuys' choice of register, from the soliloquy of his early days to the dialogue of his period as a teacher to the powerful language of his public lectures to international audiences. In this introductory essay, "A Lament for Joseph Beuys," Alain Borer summarizes the artist's oeuvre, drawing out themes of great complexity and relating them to Beuys' artistic and social milieus

Marlon Brando : portraits and film stills 1946-1995 by Marlon Brando( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and German and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the November 9, 1957 issue of The New Yorker, Truman Capote published a controversial profile of Marlon Brando called "The Duke in His Domain." This revealing essay turned out to be one of the most intimate interviews ever granted by the reclusive actor. Capote, the consummate observer, dug into the psyche of the actor who had sky-rocketed to fame in the late 1940s and who, even today, remains an enigma to audiences around the world. This revealing interview is gloriously illuminated with 87 photographs in both duotone and color, spanning the entire career of Brando from A Streetcar Named Desire to Don Juan DeMarco. Here is Brando in the roles he claimed as his own in The Wild One, Viva Zapata, Julius Caesar, On the Waterfront, Sayonara, Mutiny on the Bounty, The Godfather, Last Tango in Paris and many others

August Sanders epochaler Zyklus 'Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts' zählt zu den bedeutendsten Werken der Kunst-Photogeschichte des letzen Jahrhunderts. Sanders photographische Typologie der deutschen Gesellschaft zwischen Weimarer Republik und Nachkriegsjahren hat nicht nur Künstler, Literaten und Philosophen seiner Zeit fasziniert, sondern bildete zugleich eine wichtige Referenz für das künstlerische Selbstverständnis zeitgenössischer Photographen. Im Kontext der Sammlung von Lothar Schirmer sowie des Verlagsprogramms von Schirmer/Mosel bildet die bereits in den frühen 1970er Jahren erworbene, rund 80 Arbeiten umfassende Gruppe von Sanders Portraits, Landschaften und Stadtbildern den eigentlichen historischen Schwerpunkt, aus dem heraus sich die intensive, über Jahrzehnte andauernde Arbeit mit Photographen wie Bernd und Hilla Becher, Thomas Struth oder Cindy Sherman entwickelt hat. Die Publikation stellt die besondere Wechselwirkung von historischen und zeitgenössischen Photographien vor und beleuchtet wesentliche Momente der Verlagsgeschichte
