Balthasar Burkhard by Balthasar Burkhard( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the many facets of photographer Balthasar Burkhard (1944-2010), showing his self-invention as an artist and tracing the trajectory of the medium of photography in the later half of the twentieth century. Burkhard's work combines a sensitive understanding of the body as sculpture and the photographic image as a canvas, making him one of the pioneers in translating photography as a monumental tableau into contemporary art. This comprehensive book coalesces Burkhard's early role as a chronicler of the contemporary art of his time, especially as the main photographer for Swiss curator Harald Szeemann, his conceptual redefinition of photography together with other artists, and finally his emancipation as a photo artist. It accompanies a major retrospective organized by Museum Folkwang in Essen, Fotomuseum Winterthur and Fotostiftung Schweiz, the Museo d'arte della Svizzerra italiana in Lugano and the Balthasar Burkhard Estate in Bern. Exhibition: Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany (20.10.2017- 14.01.2018) / Fotomuseum Winterthur und Fotostiftung Schweiz, Winterthur, Switzerland (11.02. - 21.04.2018) / Museo d'arte della Svizzera italiana, Lugano, Switzerland (09.06. - 02.09.2018)
Dancing with myself : self-portrait and self-invention : works from the Pinault Collection : an exhibition by Pinault Collection and Museum Folkwang by Pinault Collection( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A collaboration between Museum Folkwang and the Pinault Collection, Dancing with Myself is a wild jig through the art of the last fifty years, in which the dancers themselves are the artists. Going beyond the classic self-portrait, this book and the exhibition it accompanies bring together pieces in which the artist's personal identity and body become the subject of the creative endeavour. What kinds of multiple meanings may ensue if author and material fuse in the artistic process? Does the author's presence in the work guarantee an authentic experience in an age in which all our truths have gone missing? Are you yourself the best, the sharpest, the most ironic critic of your own self and your artistic alter ego? What's behind the great upsurge in artistic production since the early 1970s? What critical functions and poetic modes of storytelling reside in the works that have been produced? Co-published with Museum Folkwang, Essen. Exhibition: Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany (7.10.2016-15.1.2017)."
