ANULI CROON

Patterns of Life / Levenspatronen
Made in Rotterdam 1999–2015

Vera Illés, Aat Ceelen, Maarten Janssen & Dees Linders

Paintings, works on paper and commissions by Dutch artist Anuli Croon (b. 1964) in Rotterdam between 1999 and 2015 fill the pages of this handsome, densely illustrated monograph. Brilliantly colored geometric shapes cover her large canvases, creating graphic depictions of people and places. Croon’s use of flat one-dimensional shapes for depicting her subject matter accentuates her bold forms and colors and creates a pop art–like feeling with reference to 1990s graphic designers and artists Mike Mills, Will Sweeney and the noted Geoff McFettridge. Contributing essays by Vera Illés, Aat Ceelen, Maarten Janssen and Dees Linders describe and provide insight into Croon’s large, clear paintings in which figures and fragments of a metropolis meticulously rendered in intense color, patterns and texture are unsettling in their anonymity.

CROSSING MEDIA 2013

A Stage for Art

Andreas Baur (Ed.)

“Crossover” is the keyword for Crossing Media, an annual performance festival—and this, its accompanying chunky handbook—blurs genres and artistic disciplines. All the selected works share a reference to a stagelike presentation for their realization, expanding the performative possibilities of contemporary art. Among them is Banks Violette’s delicate construction Kill Yourself, a gleaming black stage floor and ceiling from which a jumble of neon tubes appears to fall. In the piece Public Sculpture, Julien Berthier’s empty sculpture plinth stands illuminated on a red carpet as the artist’s symphonic hammer strikes on bronze statues in the open space, creating an ephemeral sound situation. Also included are works by Nevin Aladag, Daniele Buetti, Kurt Caviezel, Johan Grimonprez, Christine Hill, Eva Kotátková, Atelier van Lieshout, Philippe Ramette and many others. Essays by Andreas Baur, Anne Horny, Tina Plokarz and Anka Wenzel.

KEREN CYTTER

Despite making award-winning work spanning filmmaking, fiction, dance and acting, and participating in the 2009 Venice Biennale, Tel Aviv-born artist Keren Cytter can’t be accused of taking herself too seriously: “I studied art because I wanted to go to New York and wash dishes,” she says. This catalog from her 2010 show at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, collects six of her film scripts, a heady mix of love stories, violence, sex and murder. Her richly human non-linear narratives are often shot with a hand-held camera; scenes are repeated with different events, voiceovers or alternative dialogs; the results are hybrid docu-soaps mixing the sensibilities of home video and French auteurism.

KEREN CYTTER & NORA SCHULTZ

Terminal

Terminal, an artist’s book conceived by Nora Schultz and Keren Cytter, follows Schultz’s latest performance, Terminal + (2014) at Tate Modern in London, and the exhibition I’m Honda (2015) at Reena Spaulings Fine Art in New York. Using Google’s image search on the documentation of Schultz’s work to create an unexpected narrative of digital associations, Schultz and Cytter invited nine artists to contribute to this ever-expanding narrative. The new narrative deals with ideas such as authorship, copyright, surveillance and documentation. It kicks off with Ilan Bachl’s diary, continues with rippled text by Ulla Rossek and ends with an item from the Daily Mail about a couple who share their home with a Bengal tiger. Contributions by Ei Arakawa, Ilan Bachl, Keren Cytter, Matthew Dipple, Genoveva Filipovic, Dan Poston and David Zuckerman, Ulla Rossek, Nora Schultz and Sam Siwe.
