Michaël Borremans : eating the beard by Michaël Borremans( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings, drawings and films of Belgian artist Michaël Borremans (born 1963) seem to suspend humans above the logic of their actions, so that the simplest gesture or movement is emptied of sense and made arbitrary, tense and uneasily beautiful. Sometimes Borremans makes a garment the hero of the work, as in his well-known painting of a young woman with a bow: eye-catching as the subject's introspective facial expression undoubtedly is, the almost Pop-ish boldness of her bright white bow throws the whole composition into a bizarre tension between moody inwardness and mischievous extroversion rarely seen in contemporary art. The title of this first comprehensive overview hints at the submerged streak of wicked Belgian wit throughout Borremans' oeuvre, and presents the most coherent portrait of the artist to date. It assembles more than 100 works made over the past ten years, showing how motifs and allusions migrate across media, unifying the oeuvre into a singular investigation of atmospherics, humor and the unexpected communicative possibilities of a restrained palette of beiges, browns and greys. The particular advantage this overview offers is precisely in the presentation of such cross-media unity, also revealing how much each medium verges upon becoming the other (the cinematic qualities of the paintings, the painterliness of the films). With more than 120 color plates, Eating the Beard is the essential Borremans monograph."--Publisher's description
Michaël Borremans : as sweet as it gets by Michaël Borremans( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the late 1990s, when he first began to produce drawings and paintings, Michaël Borremans has created an extraordinarily mature body of work that has captured international attention. The disparate spaces he imagines in his paintings, drawings, sculptures and films are unified by an uncanny sense of dislocation and an often unsettling beauty. Rendered in complex palettes and exquisite techniques, Borremans' works in all media embrace a rich legacy of artistic progenitors, but remain firmly anchored in the present. Presenting over 100 works created by the artist over a 14-year period in all media, this publication includes many works not previously reproduced in books or catalogues, offering the most complete overview of Borremans' oeuvre to date. Contributions include a concise and incisive overview of Borremans' practice; a revealing, in-depth interview between the main author of the book, Jeffrey Grove, and the artist, addressing process, influence and philosophical and critical issues; as well as more than 50 individual entries and mini-essays on individual works in the artist's oeuvre by notable writers, curators, filmmakers and musicians. Described by the artist as "the mother of all Borremans books," Michaël Borremans: As Sweet As It Gets is published on the occasion of a major mid-career retrospective. Initially trained in photography and graphic design, the Belgian artist Michaël Borremans (born 1963) turned to painting at the age of 30. Work by the artist is held in numerous public collections, including The Art Institute of Chicago; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Borremans lives and works in Ghent."--Amazon.com, viewed August 14, 2014
Acts of voicing by Iris Dressler( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acts of voicing" widmet sich der ästhetischen, performativen und politischen Bedeutung der Stimme aus der Perspektive von bildender Kunst, Tanz, Performance und Theorie. Das Buch, das zugleich die gleichnamigen Ausstellungen im Württembergischen Kunstverein Stuttgart und Total Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul (2012) dokumentiert, rückt den Handlungs- und Aufführungscharakter der Stimme in den Blick. Dabei geht es gleichermaßen um die widerständige wie um die disziplinierte und disziplinierende Stimme, um solche Stimmen, die gehört, und andere, die nicht gehört werden. Der Kampf darum, seiner Stimme Gehör zu verschaffen, wird ebenso beleuchtet wie der Akt, Stimmen zum Schweigen oder zum Sprechen zu bringen

Politik der Form : die drei Projekte = Politics of form : the three projects( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How might a resistive art be imagined, despite it being enmeshed in the economic structures that need to be countered? What other knowledge, and what other communities, can art foster? What tools and weapons can it supply? This publication is focused on three projects - independent and interwoven in equal measure - which explore and newly survey, each in their own way, the relations between art, politics, and knowledge generation: the exhibitions Unrest of Form: Imagining the Political Subject as part of the Wiener Festwochen in Vienna (curators: Karl Baratta, Stefanie Carp, Matthias Pees, Hedwig Saxenhuber, and Georg Schöllhammer); Monday Begins on Saturday as part of the Bergen Assembly (curators: Ekaterina Degot and David Riff); and Giving Form to the Impatience of Liberty at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart (curators: Hans D. Christ and Iris Dressler). Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union

Re-designing the East : Politisches Design in Asien und Europa = Political design in Asia and Europe by Grzegorz Klaman( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Re-Designing the East looks at how politicized graphic design practices in Eastern Europe, South and Eastern Asia have evolved since the 1980s, with particular emphasis on designers working in zones of recent political, economic and cultural upheaval, such as Hungary, Poland, the former Czechoslovakia and South Korea. Emphasizing the dubiousness of geopolitical ascription, the book looks at a spectrum of highly divergent graphic design positions, such as: the logo of the Solidarnosc (Solidarity) movement created by Polish designer Jerzy Janiszewski; the Indian network Design & People; the Thai designer Pracha Suveeranont and his extensive boycott campaign; and the South Korean group Activism of Graphic Imagination (A.G.I.)"--Publisher's web site

Platino : Flechtwerke und Fliehkräfte = Interlacements and centrifugal forces by Platino( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Platino unhinges space. What happens when coordinates are lacking, when spatial structures dissolve? The color interventions by the Stuttgart-based artist force us to see things in a new way, to submit ourselves to a process of appropriating the exhibition context. Lots of red along with other areas and shades of color restructure the white cube, lever out lines of sight, reinterpret spaces. Platino (*1948 in Öhringen) initially concentrates his artistic inquiry on stagings in his studio, living for years in carefully composed, predominantly red rooms: his 'SPACES.' The 'EXTERNS' constitute a further, more intense level in his oeuvre: acrylic glazed Cibachrome prints of installation documents whose reflecting surfaces draw viewers and their surroundings into the picture--a repositioning of art not only in the literal sense. The volume documents a large-scale installation by the artist at the Württembergischer Kunstverein in 2013

On difference #3 : Raumpolitiken : über die Enteignung und Wiederaneignung sozialer, politischer und kultureller Handlungsräume = Politics of space : on the expropriation and re-appropriation of social, political, and cultural spaces of action( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Difference" is the title of a series of projects initiated by Württembergischer Kunstverein and developed in close co-operation with numerous international curators and artists. In two independently curated exhibitions, the project sets out in search of the local contexts, critical practices and networked spaces of action of contemporary art - specifically in 'non-Western' cultures. "On Difference" focuses on the importance of independent formats of communication and presentation of contemporary art - Internet fora, magazines, archives, self-managed exhibition rooms, etc. - whose actors engage in a critical analysis of social, political, economical and urban developments. The concept of difference is seen not as a thesis, but rather as a problem - and as a challenge - of "translation": for example between art, activism and institutions, but also between various local fields of reference and "realities"
