Iconoclash by Bruno Latour( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibit aims to display, in a systematic confrontation, three great clashes about representation - about its necessity, sanctity, and power - in the domains of science, art, and religion. Image wars are everywhere, from the Taliban destruction of the Buddhas to the doubts about scientific imagery, through the debunking of media powerful manipulations. The book includes major works by Art & Language, Willi Baumeister, Christian Boltanski, Daniel Buren, Lucas Cranach, Max Dean, Marcel Duchamp, Albrecht Dürer, Lucio Fontana, Francisco Goya, Hans Haacke, Richard Hamilton, Young Hay, Arata Isozaki, Asger Jorn, Martin Kippenberger, Imi Knoebel, Komar & Melamid, Joseph Kosuth, Gordon Matta-Clark, Tracey Moffatt, Nam June Paik, Sigmar Polke, Stephen Prina, Man Ray, Sophie Ristelhueber & Hiroshi Sugimoto
The global contemporary and the rise of new art worlds by Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The geography of the visual arts changed with the end of the Cold War. Contemporary art was no longer defined, exhibited, interpreted, and acquired according to a blueprint drawn up in New York, London, Paris, or Berlin. The art world distributed itself into art worlds. With the emergence of new art scenes in Asia and the Middle East and the explosion of biennials, the visual arts have become globalized as surely as the world economy has. This book offers a new map of contemporary art's new worlds. The Global Contemporary and the Rise of New Art Worlds documents the globalization of the visual arts and the rise of the contemporary over the last twenty years. Lavishly illustrated, with color throughout, it tracks developments ranging from exhibition histories and the rise of new art spaces to art's branding in such emerging markets as Hong Kong and the Gulf States. Essays treat such subjects as curating after the global turn; art and the migration of pictures; the end of the canon; and new strategies of representation."--Publisher's website
Future cinema : the cinematic imaginary after film by Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe( Book )

15 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the history of cinema, a radical avant-garde has existed on the fringes of the film industry. A great deal of research has focused on the pre- and early history of cinema, but there has been little speculation about a future cinema incorporating new electronic media. Electronic media have not only fundamentally transformed cinema but have altered its role as a witness to reality by rendering "realities" not necessarily linked to documentation, by engineering environments that incorporate audiences as participants, and by creating event-worlds that mix realities and narratives in forms not possible in traditional cinema. This hybrid cinema melds montage, traditional cinema, experimental literature, television, video, and the net. The new cinematic forms suggest that traditional cinema no longer has the capacity to represent events that are themselves complex configurations of experience, interpretation, and interaction." "This book, which accompanies an exhibition organized by the ZKM Institute for Visual Media, explores the history and significance of pre-cinema and of early experimental cinema, as well as the development of the unique theaters in which "immersion" evolved. Drawing on a broad range of scholarship, it examines the shift from monolithic Hollywood spectacles to works probing the possibilities of interactive, performative, and net-based cinemas. The post-cinematic condition, the book shows, has long roots in artistic practice and influences every channel of communication."--BOOK JACKET

Paul Thek : artist's artist by Paul Thek( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his brief life (1933-1988), Paul Thek went against the grain of art world trends, humanizing the institutional spaces of art with the force of his humor, spirituality, and character. Twenty years after his death from AIDS, we now recognize his influence on contemporary artists ranging from Vito Acconci and Bruce Nauman to Matthew Barney, Mike Kelley, and Paul McCarthy, as well as Kai Althoff, Jonathan Meese, and Thomas Hirschhorn. This book shows hundreds of Thek's works that chart his journey from legendary outsider to foundational figure in contemporary art. In their antiheroic diversity, his works embody the art revolution of the 1960s. The book accompanied an exhibition at ZKM/Museum of Contemporary Art presenting Thek's work in dialogue with contemporary art by young artists, includes painting, sculpture, drawing, and installation work, as well as photographs documenting the room-size environments into which Thek incorporated elements from art, literature, theater, and religion
Global activism : art and conflict in the 21st century( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today political protest often takes the form of spontaneous, noninstitutional, mass action. Mass protests during the Arab Spring showed that established systems of power - in that case, the reciprocal support among Arab dictators and Western democracies - can be interrupted, at least for a short moment in history. These new activist movements often use online media to spread their message. Mass demonstrations from Tahrir Square in Cairo to Taksim Square in Istanbul show the power of networked communication to fuel "performative democracy" - at the center of which stands the global citizen. Art is emerging as a public space in which the individual can claim the promises of constitutional and state democracy. Activism may be the first new art form of the twenty-first century. global aCtIVISm (the capitalized letters form the Latin word civis, emphasizing the power of citizens) describes and documents politically inspired art - global art practices that draw attention to grievances and demand the transformation of existing conditions through actions, demonstrations, and performances in public space. Essays by leading thinkers ; including Noam Chomsky, Antonio Negri, Peter Sloterdijk, and Slavoj Žižek - consider the emerging role of the citizen in the new performative democracy. The essays are followed by images of art objects, illustrations, documents, and other material (first shown in an exhibition at ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) as well as case studies by artists and activists
Contemporary art and the museum : a global perspective( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The institutionalization of contemporary art, seen on a global scale, has only just begun. Despite an increase in global art production, and in the number of biennials, contemporary art has yet to find its footing in the museums outside the West- a phenomenon likely to affect the future of the museum. While migration is the issue in artists' circles, public museums as local institutions are confronted with the challenge of globalization. While migration is the issue in artists' circles, public museums as local institutions are confronted with the challenge of globalization. The reciprocal impact of contemporary non-Western art and local museums all over the world is the main focal point of this book. It assembles a group of art critics, anthropologists, and museum curators who address the identity of the museum and its change from a variety of viewpoints that reflect their different backgrounds. The critical essays were written for two international conferences, while other texts were chosen for their significance as exemplary analyses for the present situation."--Cover

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1970s and 1980s, the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York at Buffalo developed into what was perhaps the most influential school for media arts in the twentieth century.

Reset modernity! by Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modernity has had so many meanings and tries to combine so many contradictory sets of attitudes and values that it has become impossible to use it to define the future. It has ended up crashing like an overloaded computer. Hence the idea is that modernity might need a sort of reset. Not a clean break, not a "tabula rasa," not another iconoclastic gesture, but rather a restart of the complicated programs that have been accumulated, over the course of history, in what is often called the "modernist project." This operation has become all the more urgent now that the ecological mutation is forcing us to reorient ourselves toward an experience of the material world for which we don't seem to have good recording devices. Reset Modernity! is organized around six procedures that might induce the readers to reset some of those instruments. Once this reset has been completed, readers might be better prepared for a series of new encounters with other cultures. After having been thrown into the modernist maelstrom, those cultures have difficulties that are just as grave as ours in orienting themselves within the notion of modernity. It is not impossible that the course of those encounters might be altered after modernizers have reset their own way of recording their experience of the world. At the intersection of art, philosophy, and anthropology, Reset Modernity! has assembled close to sixty authors, most of whom have participated, in one way or another, in the Inquiry into Modes of Existence initiated by Bruno Latour. Together they try to see whether such a reset and such encounters have any practicality. Much like the two exhibitions Iconoclash and Making Things Public, this book documents and completes what could be called a "thought exhibition:" Reset Modernity! held at ZKM, Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe from April to August 2016. Like the two others, this book, generously illustrated, includes contributions, excerpts, and works from many authors and artists."--Provided by the publisher

Media--art--history : Media Museum, ZKM, Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe by Hans-Peter Schwarz( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Descriptions and interpretations of the works - supplemented by a CD-ROM - throw light on these new developments, ranging from the visions borne out by early Modernist artists, and the art forms in the 60s, to the present day."--Jacket
Molecular aesthetics by Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thanks to advances in molecular science and microscopy, we can visualize matter on a nanoscale, and structures not visible to the naked eye can be visualized and characterized. The fact that technology allows us to transcend the limits of natural perception and see what was previously unseeable creates a new dimension of aesthetic experience and practice: molecular aesthetics. This book, drawing on an exhibit and symposium at ZKM/Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, documents aesthetic developments in what Félix Guattari called the 'molecular revolution.' Just as artists in the Bauhaus movement began to use such industrial materials as metal, Plexiglas, and alloys as raw materials, artists today have access to new realms of the molecular and nano. The industrial aesthetic of machinery and material has been transformed into an aesthetic of media and molecules. Molecular Aesthetics suggests ways in which art can draw inspiration from the molecular sciences--and ways in which science can use art to make experimental results more intelligible and comprehensible. The authors of the essays collected in the book discuss the creation of molecules of remarkable beauty and the functional properties that stem from a few geometrical principles of molecular design; address the history of molecular structure representation; examine the meaning of molecular aesthetics for scientists; and compare chemical structures to artworks"--Résumé de l'éditeur
Feminist avant-garde : art of the 1970s : the Sammlung Verbund Collection, Vienna by Galleria nazionale d'arte moderna (Italy)( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With greater energy than any artistic movement before, the feminist avant-garde of the 1970s deconstructed society's image of womanhood, dismantling centuries' worth of projections, stereotypes, and male hegemony. For the first time in the history of art, women, in an act of collective consciousness-raising, took the representation of their sex in visual art into their own hands and unfolded a wide spectrum of self-determined female identities: provocative and radical, poetic and ironic. Gabriele Schor, director of the Sammlung Verbund Collection, coined the term the Feminist Avant-Garde in order to highlight the pioneering achievements of these artists. This book presents over six hundred works in the Sammlung Verbund Collection created by forty-eight women artists. Established in Vienna in 2004 by VERBUND AG, Austria's leading electricity provider and one of the largest producers of hydropower in Europe, the collection has two main foci: "Perceptions of Spaces and Places" and the "Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s"
Mapping spaces : networks of knowledge in 17th century landscape painting by Mapping spaces( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ZKM throws new light on 17th century landscape painting. Comparable to modern satellite surveying (GPS), true to scale landscape representation is also indebted to the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge: the alliance of geodesists, mathematicians, instrument makers and painters. Artists had designed modern surveying systems long before new media drew on images from outer space. The exhibition "Mapping Spaces" examines, for the first time ever on this scale, the influence of early modern guide books in geography, the science of surveying and the construction of fortification on Dutch painting around 1650. The prelude to the project, developed at the University of Trier, is Pieter Snayers' large-format depiction of historical battle scenes, in which maps and landscape paintings are projected over one another so as to document the most recent developments in modern engineering, ballistics and the fortification construction. Over 220 exhibits, among them paintings, surveying instruments, graphics devices, books, maps and globes drawn from the most important collections of works, such as from the Prado (Madrid), the Louvre (Paris), the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) or the Kunsthistorischen Museum (Vienna) testify to these new theses in pictorial science. The new mapping of an early modern area of knowledge is accompanied by contemporary works of art that thematize the influence of technological developments on our present-day perception of space.--Museum website
Moments : eine Geschichte der Performance in 10 Akten( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New forms for the exhibition and documentation of performance have been developed and tested at ZKM Karlsruhe based on the question of the presentability of historical live performance art pieces. Works by Marina Abramovic, Graciela Carnevale, Simone Forti, Anna Halprin, Channa Horwitz, Sanja Ivekovic, Adrian Piper and Yvonne Rainer, which are today considered revolutionary milestones of performance, are reinterpreted with the assistance of the attendant artists and in dialogue with performers of the younger generation. This publication documents this process in the exhibition space in a richly illustrated photo section and combines it with a fundamental theoretical reassessment of the topic, with thirteen essays exploring the position of current research on performance in the area of dance and visual art.0Exhibition: ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany (08.03.-29.04.2013). 0
Facing the future : art in Europe 1945-1968 by Facing the future( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Second World War also shattered the art world. 'Facing the Future: Art in Europe 1945-1968' shows how such artists as Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Ossip Zadkine, Henry Moore, Renato Guttuso, Fernand Léger, Yves Klein, Gerhard Richter and Lucian Freud worked through the trauma of 1940-1945 and the Cold War and started to explore new directions in art. This reference work includes some 400 works by 150 artists and for the first time brings together post-war art from both Western and Eastern Europe. In enlightening texts, experts reveal the various evolutions and movements, from the mourning of the first postwar years to British Pop Art and political art leading up to the revolutions of the late 1960s.
