Most widely held works by Daniel Baumann
The art of Adolf Wölfli : St. Adolf-Giant-Creation by Elka Spoerri( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers a fresh vantage point on the artist's remarkably intricate drawings and astonishing collages, as well as his newly translated writings, which are justly celebrated for their dizzying blend of mythology and humor
Adolf Wölfli : draftsman, writer, poet, composer by Adolf Wölfli( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to encompass all of Wolfli's work, including his writings and musical compositions. The authors approach the phenomenon Wolfli from a variety of perspectives that delineate and clarify the structure of the artist's work and assess its connections to modern art. The chronology and composition of his work are presented in the context of art history. Text analyses bring new understanding to his writing. His cosmic experiences and the elaboration of his number systems are seen in relation to philosophical concepts
John McCracken by John McCracken( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first complete catalog on John McCracken's work, including critical essays, an interview with the artist, and a chronology detailing his long career. This catalog presents fifty historic works beginning from the 1960s which have rarely been shown in public. McCracken was an internationally famous American artist, known for his unusual and visionary approach to trends in the Minimalism and Finish Fetish art movements which developed in the United States at the beginning of the 1960s. He made "minimalist, spiritual, enigmatic, irresistibly beautiful" sculptures and paintings. McCracken is known principally for what he defines as "blocks, slabs, columns, planks. Basic, beautiful forms, neutral forms." The starting point for such "neutral forms" is the minimalist object or primary structure such as the cube or plank. Made in plywood and then covered in fibreglass and polyester resin and lacquered in bold colours, the neutral forms transform into objects that knowingly bring together Minimal Art trends with the colours of the automobile industry and the idea of a mental and immaterial space. McCracken, while famous mainly for his minimalist sculptures, also completed his rarely-seen Mandala cycle of paintings in the 1970's. These will also be included inthis retrospective."--Publisher's website

5 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oskar is the account of Oskar-von-Miller Strasse 16. The art space became renowned as a gigantic 'replication device, ' and this book itself is a product of such practices. Scores of audio and visual materials, partly in the form of transcripts from two Conferences of Anecdotes, chronicle its years of activities"--Publisher's website
Writings on Wade Guyton( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few figures have had an impact as important on our understanding of artistic production after the turn of the millennium as Wade Guyton, whose practice has widely prompted reconsiderations of longstanding models of medium-specificity, appropriation, and critical engagement--and, perhaps more provocatively, performativity and ready-made gesture--in art. This volume takes stock of critical perspectives on Guyton's work over the course of the artist's career, assembling both expansive, scholarly essays and more concise, journalistic assessments by an international array of authors--Daniel Baumann, Johanna Burton, Bettina Funcke, John Kelsey, and Scott Rothkopf among them--offering an invaluable reference for any reader coming to terms with this unique practice. Just as significantly, the volume holds up a mirror to the rapidly changing context for Guyton's work, which in a few short years shifted from discussions of the widespread use of modernist motifs in art during the early 2000s to others revolving around the artwork, anticipating its continuous circulation as digital media became ubiquitous in art and culture alike. A foreword by editor Tim Griffin examines Guyton's production and reception, underlining the continual dialogue between the artist's work and cultural setting, shedding light on the different times, and Guyton's contrapuntal mode of engagement throughout

Mit Anm
Jolly Rogers by Peter Wächtler( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jolly Rogers is a collection of Peter Wächtler's latest short texts, written in preparation of his two solo exhibitions at Bergen Kunsthall and Kunsthalle Zürich (both 2019), and combined with a nearly complete collection of the artist's drawings and prints from recent years. The texts operate like vignettes to a larger story, and the images as unreliable illustrations to the narrative. However, the larger story never really is revealed. Each individual text, each single work, articulates itself by means of an intense focus. It is as if we were suspended in a continual zooming motion, as if the artist and author wanted to tell and show it all. But alas, such is life under the microscope: always larger-than-life, but at the wrong scale at a time driven by individual interests, self-optimization, and egos that stage themselves simultaneously as victims and disruptors. Peter Wächtler works in a variety of media: bronze, ceramics, drawings and video. But in many ways "stories" could be described as his main artistic material. His works often evoke a narration, with animals or human figures in animated states. They are made in ways that use and adapt elements of fiction and folklore, relating to specific traditions and common tales, and materialize the ways of telling a story as much as the story itself
Martin Kippenberger by Martin Kippenberger( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martin Kippenberger's work has always been inextricably linked with his personal life, to the extent that at times this has dominated its critical reception. This book aims to redress the balance, concentrating on his art and exploring its visual and conceptual aspects. Kippenberger's varied oeuvre included paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photography, prints, and artist's books, executed in a wide variety of styles. The authors examine the themes underlying his work, including Socialist Realism and kitsch; self portraiture and myth; punk and anti-romanticism; exile and homelessness; the importance of humour and its roots in German political realities; and the artist's interest in language and the influence on his work of literature. The inclusion of a new translation of Kippenberger's final interview ensures his own, idiosyncratic voice is present."--Jacket
