Otto Dix and the new objectivity by Otto Dix( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Neue Sachlichkeit--I invented it.' This is the catchy way Otto Dix, looking back, rewrote the development of the art movement, which alongside abstract art and Expressionism can be considered the 'third path' taken in the development of art in the modern era. The unrelenting realism of his work is at the heart of an attitude situated somewhere between the grotesque and the classical, to which some of the most important artists of the twentieth century subscribed. This is the first publication to illuminate Neue Sachlichkeit against the backdrop of the Weimar Republic and National Socialism. Dix's works--including the key Metropolis triptych (1928-29), the great psychological portraits, and, last but not least, the landscapes with their hidden symbolism, painted during the years he spent at Lake Constance--form the starting point for this exploration of his oeuvre. They are placed in a context with works of art by George Grosz, Rudolf Schlichter, and Christian Schad, creating a new perspective on this crucial chapter in German art history."--Publisher's website
Otto Dix : hommage a Martha by Otto Dix( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in German and English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1921 and 1933, Otto Dix (1891-1969) created many portraits of his lover and later wife, Martha. Representative paintings, watercolors, drawings, and humorous sketches show Martha Dix in various roles: as a sophisticated, emancipated woman; as muse and intellectual companion; as mother and center point of the family. The painter's different attitudes toward his model, which range from admiration to intimacy to increasing distance, are transposed into a multiplicity of different types of portraits. The titles of the works, from emotionally charged to matter-of-fact description, underscore this impression. Martha's portraits show more than just the art of Otto Dix in its many facets. They also reflect the urban flair, fashion, music, dance, and traditional and new gender roles in the 1920s."--BOOK JACKET
Piktogramme - die Einsamkeit der Zeichen : [Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, 4. November 2006-25. Februar 2007] by Marion Ackermann( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in German and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Signes de Sortie de secours, flèches, signalétique non-fumeurs ; l'humanité est entourée de pictogrammes. Éléments essentiels d'un code universellement compréhensible ils occupent, naturellement, une position centrale dans toute étude sur le rôle des signes dans l'art. En fait, dès le début du 20e siècle, les artistes travaillaient déjà sur le développement d'une langue internationale qui allait au-delà de la langue parlée ou écrite. Présentant quelque 350 œuvres provenant d'Allemagne et de l'étranger, l'exposition"--Pictogrammes la solitude des signes" retrace l'histoire de l'art du pictogramme. A la fin on est confronté à la question fascinante: que se passe-t-il quand un artiste prend la banalité d'un signe, destiné à être lu rapidement, intuitivement et sans ambiguïté, et qu'il jette dans l'arène de l'art où tout est sujet à interprétation?
Rebecca Horn : moon mirror : site-specific installations, 1982-2005 by Doris von Drathen( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication focuses on an aspect of Rebecca Horn's extraordinarily diverse oeuvre that plays an important role in the formal constitution of her large sculptures and installations - the relationship between the work of art and its architectural setting. The book presents a selection ranging from works of the 1980s to sculptures and installations realized in 2005. In the early Measure Box (1970) and Rooms meet in mirrors (1974/75a) the human body is the measure of spatial perception. In the installation entitled Concert in Reverse (1987), the artist works in a building with a dubious political background - the "Zwinger," where countless people were tortured during the Nazi regime - exploring its history and creating a place of remembrance. In Moon Mirror (2003), a work installed in Pollenca, the artist creates a column of air between a fountain constructed with mirrors and an eddy of light beneath the dome of the convent church. At the point at which the Orient and the Occident meet, the moon is captured as a "vehicle of human vision and expressions." The viewer descends into the depths of the fountain and transcends his own horizon in order to survey the heavens anew. -- Dustjacket
Rudolf Steiner and contemporary art by Mario Merz( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since the Rudolf Steiner's panel drawings were first exhibited in a contemporary art context in the summer of 1992 at the Galerie Monika Sprüth in Cologne, they went on tour as the transmitter of an 'anthroposophy for the future' through the best known museums in the world. In addition to his paintings, drawings and sculptures, these panel pictures are clearly located at the junction between art and science, programmatically pointing to the key interrelationship between mankind and the cosmos. It was always Steiner's extraordinary way of seeing objects and non-objects that led to sustainable reform projects in such fields as agriculture, education and medicine. This book examines for the first time Anthroposophist thought as reflected in contemporary art and to what extent its integral concepts and aesthetic ideas are realized in the visual arts

Getroffen : Otto Dix und die Kunst des Porträts = Match : Otto Dix and the art of portraiture by Otto Dix( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian Jankowski : Dienstbesprechung = Briefing by Christian Jankowski( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christian Jankowski (1968 in Gottingen) became known to a wider audience with Telemistica, his humorous contribution to the 1999 Venice Biennale in which he asked fortunetellers on Italian television to predict his success at the exhibition. Whether hula-hooping in a museum, teleshopping at an art fair, or participating in a TV cooking show in a gallery, Jankowski lodges himself with sly humor in popular entertainment programs and the art business to subtly question the role of art and medial entertainment in our society." "This volume provides the first representative cross-section of Jankowski s oeuvre. His best-known pieces, such as the film he produced in Hollywood entitled 16mm Mystery or The Day We Met, which was shot in a karaoke bar, are presented in addition to his most recent, previously unpublished works, including the video Kunstmarkt TV, made at the 2008 Art Cologne, and his video installation Briefing, created especially for the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart."--BOOK JACKET
Eating the universe : vom Essen in der Kunst( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elger Esser : Eigenzeit by Elger Esser( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The photographs of Elger Esser act like a déjà vu: his magic pictures of riverscapes, bridges, villages, and seacoasts awaken vague memories, even if we have never visited any of the places photographed. Consciously drawing on Marcel Proust, the Stuttgart-born artist (b.1967). Esser thus defies in his choice of photographic techniques: he presented his most recently produced heliogravures, an almost forgotten technique from the nineteenth century, for the first time at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart and subsequently at the Museum for Modern Art Arnhem. This first large survey exhibition is fifty large-format works by the artist. Additionally at the beginning of the Duke Collection. Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Dusseldorf Academy of Arts Elger Esser is one of the most important German photographers today.--Gallery website
I got rhythm : Art and jazz since 1920 = Kunst und Jazz seit 1920( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1920s and 1930s jazz from the United States took Europe by storm, conquering the ballrooms and dance halls, bars and cafés, music halls and movie theaters. The new music was the first popular phenomenon -- it was pop before pop existed -- and enthralled the bohemian world and affluent middle class as much as it did adolescents and intellectuals. With works by major artists such as Otto Dix, Max Beckmann, Marlene Dumas, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock, Romare Bearden, Andy Warhol, K.R.H. Sonderborg, Verena Loewensberg, A.R. Penck, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, I Got Rhythm: Art and Jazz since 1920 demonstrates how jazz provoked a remarkable response from the art scene throughout the twentieth century. This book unites diverse artistic explorations of jazz, starting with paintings of the classic modern period, continuing with works of European and American postwar abstraction, and culminating in contemporary installations and video pieces."--

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieter Roth souvenirs by Dieter Roth( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art polymath extraordinaire, Dieter Roth (1930-1998) maintained throughout his career an output so prodigious and various that art historians and fans are still struggling to keep up. Bringing innovations to media such as installation, sculpture, artist's books, jewelry and writing, Roth also traveled and collaborated extensively, becoming one of the postwar art scene's most visible personalities. Roth kept a close circle of artist friends with whom he collaborated, and to whom he made regular gifts of works that he named "Souvenirs." These friends included Richard Hamilton, Dorothy Iannone, Hansjörg Mayer, Martin Suter and Jan Voss, and the gifts included works of mail art, which Roth would gleefully subject to the vicissitudes of the postal system ("Has it arrived yet?" Voss recalls Roth asking him, of one such gift; "Has it already been nicely destroyed?"). Dieter Roth: Souvenirs is the first presentation of these works."--Publisher description
