Dispatches from moments of calm : 89 stories, 64 pictures by Alexander Kluge( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On October 5, 2012, the German national newspaper Die Welt published its daily issue - but things looked ... different. Quieter. The sensations of the day, forgotten as soon as they’re read, were missing, replaced with an unprecedented calm, extracted with care from the chaos of the contemporary. That calm was the work of Gerhard Richter, who had been granted control over Die Welt for that single day, taking over and imprinting all thirty pages of the newspaper with his personal stamp: images from quiet moments amid unquiet times, the demotion of politics from its primary position, the privileging of the private and personal over the public, and, above all, artful, moving contrasts between sharpness and softness. He had created an unprecedented work of mass art. Among the many people to praise the work was writer Alexander Kluge, who instantly began writing stories to accompany Richter’s images. This book, the second collaboration between Kluge and Richter, brings their stories and images together, along with new words and artworks created specifically for this volume. The result, Dispatches from Moments of Calm, is a beautiful, meditative interval in the otherwise unremitting press of everyday life, a masterpiece by two acclaimed artists working at the height of their powers"--Publisher's website
Photorealism : 50 years of hyperrealistic painting( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They devote themselves to the veneer of modern everyday life, the mirrored world of surfaces. Reflective shop windows, limousines with shiny chrome, garishly colored plastic kitsch, and urban scenes have been the favorite subjects of the Photorealists for fifty years. In a complicated work process, the artists employ technical aids to create painted illusions: they photograph their source materials, transfer them with the aid of slide projectors or scans, and then capture them precisely with the brush or spray gun on canvas. This publication presents the impressive works of art by leading figures in this movement, starting with sixties artists such as Richard Estes, Chuck Close, and Don Eddy and moving through three generations of artists to the hyper-realistic visual experiences of contemporary digital artists such as Yigal Ozeri, Raphaella Spence, and Robert Neffson."--Publisher's website
In the temple of the self : the artist's residence as a total work of art : Europe und America 1800-1948 by Margot Brandlhuber( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As treasure troves of creativity, the homes of artists reflect the intellectual worlds of their creators. Starting with the Villa Stuck in Munich--the aesthetic, conceptual cosmos and life's work of the aristocratic artist Franz von Stuck--this volume integrates the artist's house as a category into the international context and is the first to assign these buildings the status of major works. About twenty examples bring to life the fascination that these artistic fantasies hold for art lovers, including both existing projects and some which, although they have been lost, were of unique importance in their day and still retain their charisma. Along with paintings, sculptures, and photographs closely related to the houses, plans and models convey the correlation between art and life as well as the kind of harmony of the arts expressed in Richard Wagner's historical concept of the total work of art
Three plays : Philoctetes, the Horatian, Mauser by Heiner Müller( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite being widely acknowledged as one of the most important German dramatists since Bertolt Brecht, the work of Heiner Müller (1929-95) still remains relatively little known in the English-speaking world. This volume aims to go some way towards redressing this, by presenting new translations of three of his plays whose complex poetic texts show the influence of Shakespeare, classical Greek tragedy and avant-garde political theatre"--Page 4 of cover

20th century European battlefields : Peter Hebeisen by Peter Hebeisen( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The photographs in this book deliberately refuse to evoke any image of the horror of past battles. For Peter Hebeisen also thinks that modern war cannot be visualized. The raw reality of war is not visible in his photographs. It is only on reading the location of the battle in the caption that the viewer's memory traces are activated. ..."--Acts of photographic remembrance, P.6
Olaf Otto Becker : reading the landscape by Olaf Otto Becker( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pluriverse( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Kluge sees himself as an author. He inspires his readers, listeners and viewers with his films, texts interviews and much more besides. On the occasion of his 85th birthday, Museum Folkwang is presenting an exhaustive exhibition destined to visualize the core of his multimedia oeuvre. Kluge forges links and then explores through them what makes human beings tick, how we are unique and stubborn, capable of judgement, to what extent history and stories are stored within us, what felt and what real options for action we have, and why our biographies are a currency. Alexander Kluge uses images, texts and objects to create ever new constellations, whose sense or nonsensicality is primarily the product of montage. Kluge allows our imagination to germinate in the interstices between the two poles. Central to him are the links between emotion and reason, and he is forever hunting down the theoretical in everyday life
Die Schweizer = Les Suisses = Gli Svizzeri = Ils Svizzers = The Swiss by Mathias Braschler( Book )

Egon Schiele, Jenny Saville by Oliver Wick( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painter Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) produced his main body of work within the space of ten years. His famous nudes probed unwaveringly the existential core of human experience. This paintings of Jenny Saville are no less intensely physical and confrontational than Schiele's. This catalogue brings together the works of these two artists for the first time, revealing stylistic and thematic affinities in their body-landscapes and portraits - despite the decades separating their work and the difference in their brushwork. The paintings and drawings of both artists lend the body an insistent corporeality. In Schiele's usually small-format self-portraits, the pose, the accentuated view from below and gestural style give the images an impact equal to the forceful punch of Saville's giant forms."
