Readymade century by Dieter Daniels( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and German and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als Marcel Duchamp vor 100 Jahren das Readymade erfand, war nicht abzusehen, dass x-beliebige Alltagsgegenstände die Kunst so nachhaltig beeinflussen würden. Das Buch The Readymade Century beleuchtet seine Readymades aus zwei Perspektiven: Der Readymade Index untersucht die Genese und Konsistenz von Duchamps Konzept in den ersten fünfzig Jahren des 'Readymade Century' zwischen 1914 und 1964. Der zweite Teil Readymade Exposition beschreibt die weit über die Lebenszeit des Künstlers hinausreichende Wirkungsgeschichte. Das Scharnier zwischen beiden Kapiteln bilden die Edition von Duchamps Readymades als Multiples und die Ausstellung von Andy Warhols Brillo Boxes. Zeitgleich - aber unabhängig voneinander - markieren diese beiden Ereignisse im Jahr 1964 einen Wendepunkt in der Mitte des 'Readymade Century', der unmittelbare Relevanz für die heutigen künstlerischen Praktiken des 'schon Fertigen' hat. Das Buch verbindet theoretische Reflexion mit der visuellen Aufführung von Kunst

Karl-Heinz Adler : Kunst im System - System in der Kunst = art in the system - the system in art by Karl-Heinz Adler( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl-Heinz Adler begann Ende der fünfziger Jahre, sich als Künstler neu zu erfinden: Er arrangierte gefächerte Schichtungen gleicher geometrischer Elemente, konstruktivistische Collagen sich durchdringender Rechtecke sowie transparente Folienschichtungen, später folgten die großflächigen -'Seriellen Lineaturen'. Seine Kunst stieß in der DDR auf Ablehnung, obwohl sie ganz unmittelbar den Alltag vieler Menschen in den Neubauvierteln bestimmte. Gemeinsam mit seinem Künstlerkollegen Friedrich Kracht hatte er 1968 das 'Beton-Formstein-Programm' entwickelt: ein Baukasten von zwölf modularen Grundformen, der kurze Zeit später in Produktion ging und von da an das Bild der Trabantenstädte prägte. Der Band erscheint mit einem Interview von Hans Ulrich Obrist zum 90. Geburtstag des Künstlers

Labyrinth - Ein Buch in vier Vorträgen by Olaf Nicolai( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de Rollo Press: "The starting point for this transcript of four lectures, all held in Leipzig in 2010, is a public art work that Olaf Nicolai installed in Paris in 1998. By exploring and combining a broad spectrum of topics that relate to the theme of the labyrinth, this book serves as both, a reference system to Nicolai's work as well as an independent source book dealing with labyrinthian matter ranging from the minotaur to the floorplans of IKEA. - Published in collaboration with Spector Books."

Parkett. Olaf Nicolai, Ernesto Neto, Rebecca Warren ; insert: Anne Collier( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“Nicolai uses the license that his status as an artist gives him to be free of academia—free to abuse sources and reconfigure images and objects of entirely different statuses. Thus, while remaining securely within the identity of an artist, Nicolai performs a role as a researcher and combiner—a turner-upside-down-of-things to see what they look like from another angle, and ultimately create new modes of visibility. His strategy, it would seem, is a fine one at this point in our cultural development, given the current moment’s political exhaustion and the universalizing of ‘creativity’ for bland economic ends.”

All our suns by Olaf Nicolai( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every image in 'All Our Suns' is taken from Olaf Nicolai's collection of pictures of outer space that have been printed in daily newspapers. These images suggest a high degree of objectivity, though technological settings as well as individual wishes and imaginings determine the result of the depiction. The collection is based on a fascination with spectacular pictures and an interest in image-generating procedures. Yet it is also triggered by the temporally paradoxical entanglement of daily news on Earth and extraterrestrial occurrences. The book collects traces of a possible audience out there looking down on our sceneries here
