Collected Words and Images
Sabine Folie (Ed.)
Director of the Generali Foundation from 2008 to 2014, Sabine Folie helped establish the institution’s reputation for generating new critical discussion on contemporary art through revisiting modernism. This voluminous survey catalog, richly illustrated with photographs and source materials, documents the extensive collection of works acquired during Folie’s tenure. Essays by theorists and artists reflect on contemporary art themes exploring areas such as linguistic devices, the dismantling of representation and the reorganization of pictorial space, the changing roles of artist and museums, the relationship between subject and environment due to globalization and post-colonialism, artistic processing of history and the production of memorial culture. Included are commentary and artworks by Lothar Baumgarten, Marcel Broodthaers, Ernst Caramelle, Morgan Fisher, Stéphane Mallarmé and Ian Wallace, among others. Essays by Christa Blümlinger, Rachel Haidu, Gabriele Mackert, Michael Newman and more.
