Silvia Bächli : far apart, close together by Silvia Bächli( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silvia Bächli (b. 1956) is considered to be one of the most important illustrators of her generation in Switzerland. This comprehensive reader will, for the first time, examine the broadness of the presentation forms tried out over the years - less in the sense of a retrospective as a chronological sequence of development steps, but rather as a concise involvement with very different moments of her creative drawing work, giving an insight into the unique graphic cosmos of Bächli. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum, St. Gallen, Switzerland (11.2.-13.5.2012)
Mathieu Mercier : everything but the kitchen sink by Mathieu Mercier( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lamps, furniture, bicycles, letter presses, museum pedestals: Mathieu Mercier's artistic output moves back and forth in a masterly manner between the categories of art and everyday culture. Situated within the dynamic field of architecture, design, and the visual arts, it reflects upon the fundamental ideas of Western culture in the twentieth century, especially the concept of Modernism.0 0Again and again, he refers back to the artistic avant-garde, to heroes such as Marcel Duchamp or Piet Mondrian, and establishes connections with their gestures and pictorial inventions by means of deliberate displacements of apparently ordinary objects from the contemporary world. In a permanent exchange between high and low, Mercier enigmatically poses the question as to the status of objects oscillating between functionality and artistic freedom from practical utilization when, for example, he takes pipes intended for construction purposes and converts them into benches, or transforms sporting equipment into monstrous light fixtures. 0Exhibition: Villa Merker Galerien der Stadt Esslingen am Neckar, Germany (13.12.2014-22.02.2015)

7 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karin Sander : Gebrauchsbilder by Karin Sander( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patina- oder Gebrauchsbilder nennt Karin Sander eine Werkgruppe, an der sie seit 1990 arbeitet. Dabei kehrt sie in listiger Weise den künstlerischen Prozess um. Indem die Werke im Grunde durch die Sammler entstehen, hinterfragt sie die Art und Weise, wie Kunst üblicherweise produziert, verkauft und aufbewahrt wird: Die Gebrauchsbilder entstehen an dem Ort, an dem sie hängen. Die grundierten Bildträger werden ohne vorherige Manipulation an einen ausgesuchten Ort transportiert und verbleiben dort ungeschützt für einen bestimmten Zeitraum. Sie sammeln die spezifische Patina ihres Ortes und bilden diesen ab
Ferdinand Hodler - Alberto Giacometti : eine Begegnung by Konrad Bitterli( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in German and Undetermined and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ferdinand Hodler und Alberto Giacometti sind die beiden bedeutendsten Schweizer Maler der Moderne. In jungen Jahren war Giacometti noch stark von Hodlers Malerei geprägt, vermittelt vor allem durch seinen Vater Giovanni, ein Freund des Berners. Dass es auch im reifen Schaffen erstaunliche Parallelen und Verwandtschaften gibt, zeigt die Ausstellung. So finden sich bei beiden ein ähnlich suchender Strich der Zeichnung, die Thematisierung des eigenen Ichs im Selbstporträt bzw. im Alter Ego des Bruders. Beide befragen die menschliche Existenz in der Einzelfigur wie in Gruppendarstellungen, wobei auch der Tod allgegenwärtig ist

Jahrhunderts die Darstellung der Alpen ? beinahe hundert Jahre bevor Albrecht von Haller sie besingt. Im Austausch zwischen niederländischen und Schweizer Künstlern rückt die Bergwelt in der Folge immer stärker ins Bewusstsein der Landschaftsmaler wie Caspar Wolf und Alexander Calame.0Werke von Pieter Bruegel d. Ä., Roelant Savery, Allaert van Everdingen, Jacob van Ruisdael, Jan Hackaert, Conrad Meyer, Felix Meyer, Johann Ludwig Aberli, Caspar Wolf, Johann Jakob Biedermann, François Diday, Alexandre Calame u. a
