Hanne Darboven : enlightenment--time histories, a retrospective by Hanne Darboven( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hanne Darboven (1941-2009) is one of the twentieth century's most extraordinary international artists. This major publication brings together key works from all phases of her prolific career spanning over fifty years. It highlights the outstanding and wide-ranging output of this key conceptual artist in its entire temporal and stylistic breadth, featuring works in which the artist focuses on political events, German history and her personal context and shows the extensive work series exploring themes from cultural history, music, literature, and (natural) science. Beside the serial calculations on paper the book also presents parts of the artist's studio in Hamburg: The desks, for example, tell us of Darboven's systematic approach to her work. The so-called music room, a quasi-encyclopedic archive, grants insight for the first time into the intellectual cosmos of the artist and her practice of compilation, composition and notation

3 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an overview of the long career of German photographer Katharina Sieverding, celebrated internationally for her use of unusual pictorial invention and innovative media-based practice that helped to revive the artistic potential of photography. Designed largely by Sieverding herself, this book presents forty-two groups of works from 1967 to 2017, including her greatly enlarged portraits in film and photographs, large-format montages on the state of the world from the 1970s, installation photos, self-portraits, and more. The resulting book presents an artist of great range, sensitivity, and expression, always pushing the medium of photography in new directions and towards new discoveries
The new public by Federico Campagna( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our concept of the public dimension has changed hugely over the last few decades. On one hand, public control over economic and social developments has weakened, making way for a new world order run by the private economy {u2013} a situation that is lambasted by protest movements such as Occupy. In other ways, however, the concept of the public sphere has gained increasing importance in today{u2019}s society. Thanks to modern technologies, social media and the internet, the intimate is immediately published; thoughts are declared before they are even properly formulated, and anything perceived as immoral is instantly condemned. The term political correctness is increasingly losing terrain and populism is rife, with the majority view being taken as a political norm. The public sphere has become a new public sphere. The importance of the public in contemporary art has also changed radically. The new modes of communication have influenced the way museums work when it comes to mediation and public relations. Moreover, curatorial work and even artistic practice itself have developed new and unexpected strategies for relating to the public. Thanks to the paradigm shift occasioned by the so-called educational turn, the public has changed, becoming what could be considered a new public. (Rein Wolfs)
