OLAF METZEL

Coffee / Newspaper / Cigarettes

Matthia Löbke (Ed.)

German sculptor, object artist and draftsman Olaf Metzel aims at a direct encounter with the viewer and his social, urban and sociopolitical environment. In this extensively illustrated catalog, Metzel gathers together his latest group of works, Zeitungsarbeiten (Newspaper Works). Huge piles of aluminum plates, folded, bent and crumpled like discarded newspapers, are juxtaposed with soft white newspaper pages, seemingly frozen among the sharp, bulky metal. Viewers stand spellbound before work on the life and death of Amy Winehouse, inasmuch as the sculpture provides a direct and simple illustration of the hopelessness and anger imprinted on her life. Metzel has provoked extreme reactions since he first came to wide notice in 1987, and he continues to walk the line between historically-influenced fine art and pointed social criticism. Included are texts by Peter Richter, Bodo Fründt and Patrick Lambert.

OLAF METZEL – HANS VON MARÉES

One Approach

Joachim Kaak (Ed.)

Contemporary German sculptor Olaf Metzel (b. 1952) engages the work of the controversial 19th-century artist Hans von Marées (1837–1887) from a contemporary perspective in Olaf Metzel – Hans von Marées. Some consider von Marees a foundational figure in German modernism; others consider him a failed artist. The double exhibition and accompanying catalog present Metzel’s provocative sculptures next to von Marees’s figurative and mythological Roman-style paintings. Installation shots and details of both artists’ works in this compact publication confidently allow political worlds to collide: Metzel’s large aluminum work Lampedusa (2015), built of newspaper articles on the refugee issue, are juxtaposed with the poetic and divine gardens of von Marees’s historical painting. Olaf Metzel brings the oeuvre of his colleague up-to-date while at the same time proving the never-ending excitement of artistic provocation. Contributions by Michael Diers, Joachim Kaak, Konrad Laudenbacher, Bernhard Maaz, Olaf Metzel, Frank Schmidt and Bernhard Schwenk.

MINIMALIA

Italian Art from the Second Avant-Garde

Minimalia: Italian Art from the Second Avant-Garde is dedicated to Italian artists working from the 1960s to early 1980s who fostered the development of the art movements ZERO, Gruppo T, Gruppo N, Pittura Analitica and Arte Povera. Though in dialogue with the North American Minimal art movement, the artists in these groups represented a uniquely Italian vision that exerted a powerful influence on the international avant-garde and are now recognized as important contributors to the history of twentieth-century abstraction. Minimalia includes works by Enrico Castellani, Salvatore Scarpitta, Mario Merz, Alberto Biasi, Grazia Varisco and Giorgio Griffa, among many others. Photographs of the items on auction are accompanied by essays on the individual artists and an in-depth interview with internationally renowned curator and critic Achille Bonito Oliva, who organized the 1999 exhibition Minimalia: An Italian Vision in 20th-Century Art at MoMA PS1, NY, by Wright’s own Elisabeth Del Prete.

THE MIRROR OF NARCISSUS

From Mythological Demigod to Mass Phenomenon

Beate Ermacora & Maren Welsch (Eds.)

Taking as its starting point the myth of Narcissus, who fell in love with his own reflection and pined away because he couldn’t possess his beloved, this catalog for an international group exhibition includes a smart curatorial mix of international artists. Featured are Barbara Bloom, Felix Burger, Luis Camnitzer, Niklas Goldbach, Conny Habbel, Katja Hammerle, Ely Kim, Jürgen Klauke, Urs Lüthi, Bjørn Melhus, John Miller, Olaf Nicolai, Helmut Schober, Johanna Smiatek, Wainer Vaccari and historical works by Gyula Benczúr, Felix Nussbaum, Johann Heinrich Schönfeld plus more. The diverse selection of art works is not concerned merely with self-experience and self-recognition, with clichés and male behavioral models, but also with the social changes regarding the blurring of gender roles and the acceptance of the glorification of the masculine physique, thus illuminating our current social circumstances. Texts by Julia Brennacher, Lotte Dinse, Beate Ermacora, Jürgen Tabor and others.

HAROON MIRZA

HRM199 LTD

Roland Wetzel (Ed.)

London-based UK artist Haroon Mirza’s atmospheric large-scale installations combine sound, light, film and video with found objects—audio equipment, LEDs and solar panels—and work by other artists to create an immersive experience that confounds and challenges authorship and spatial orientation. The artist’s work to date, currently at the Museum Tinguely, Basel, is presented in this substantial catalog designed in the rhizome-like structure of Mirza’s creative and practical interactions. Organized both along process-oriented chronological lines and cartographically, the catalog offers a sort of road map of the networked interactions that are a part of each project. Incorporating work by numerous artists such as Mattia Bosco, Alexander Calder, Jeremy Deller, Gaia Fugazza, Gary Hill, Anish Kapoor, Richard Sides and Jean Tinguely, Mirza’s projects question perceptual distinctions and challenge the categorization of cultural forms.
