SUSANNE PAESLER

Works 1991–2006

Christian Schreier & Stephan Berg (Eds.)

German painter Susanne Paesler (1963–2006) was among a generation of artists in the 1990s who distanced themselves from the modernist concept of the image as a place of ever new and competing aesthetics. Distrustful of the notion of authenticity and uniqueness, Paesler examined the meaning of artwork itself within her conceptual paintings produced during her short but powerful career. Forty formal geometric paintings, made over a 15-year period, are gathered for the first time in this well-designed publication accompanying her solo exhibition at Kunstmuseum Bonn. Paesler’s paintings are sometimes reminiscent of cheap woolen blankets, Burlington socks or Burberry coats —everyday objects that served her as motive and model for her work. But instead of following the principle of the readymade and mounting fabric directly onto stretchers, the artist manually copied the patterns so that painting, handcraft and design became a fluent conceptual exchange. Bringing insight into Paesler’s unique career is a provocative conversation between curator Christian Schreier and gender studies professor Hanne Loreck.

CHARLEMAGNE PALESTINE

Luca Lo Pinto & Samuel Saelemakers (Eds.)

A major influence on 20th-century contemporary art, the sound and performance artist Charlemagne Palestine (b. 1947) works from a highly personal universe of ritual, intoxication and shamanism. Part exhibition document and artist book, this oversized publication is both electrifying and an assault to the senses exploding with images of rooms overflowing with the stuffed animals the artist calls “divinities.” A sampling from 40 years of Charlemagne’s extensive experimental musical compositions, performances and installations is complemented by Kunstalle Wein curator Luca Lo Pinto’s interview with the artist and an essay by Whitney performance curator Jay Sanders. Also included are Palestine’s extraordinary music and sound annotations and a large collection of works on paper translating sound into image. Besides Palestine being a force of his own, few recognize the powerful influence Charlemagne had on young artists such as Mike Kelly while he was teaching at Cal Arts in the 1970s. Exhibited and collected by major institutions throughout Europe and the US.

Christodoulos Panayiotou

Two Days after Forever: A Reader on the Choreography of Time
The Cyprus Pavilion, Biennale Arte 2015

Omar Kholeif (Ed.)

Cypriot artist Christodoulos Panaylotou uses archaeology as a discipline to explore the mechanisms governing the relationship between tradition and modernity. Physical artifacts cover the pavilion, from ancient mosaics and shoes made of fake leather handbags to a mountain of shredded Cyprus dollars. Published to accompany the installation at the Cyprus Pavilion, 56th Venice Biennale, this reader adopts a variety of modes of address—critical writing, poetry, open-ended letters, sketches, provocations, new and existing texts—as theater for considering the questions: How does one choreograph a history that is constantly being reimagined? Is there an anthropology of movement? Cyprus becomes the site of multiple imaginaries with new routes of escape, exploring materiality as performance and quiet gestures as subversive counterpoints to homogenous nationalistic narratives. Contributors include Elke Wittrock, Mirjam Brusius, Malak Helmy, Yannis Hamilakis, Uzma Z. Rizvi among others.

STEFAN PANHANS

Sorry

German videographer/photographer Stefan Panhans is well-established in Europe for his biting, sardonic cultural satire and surrealistic environments. This is his sixth monograph-exhibition catalog, the first available in the United States, where he is on the cusp of discovery by Americans. This artist’s book brings together several bodies of work, including Sorry – with stills from the work, and documents of the process of making the video – and When does the moon actually come out?, which includes seven video installations and 35 photographic works. Panhans’ work focuses on “mental archaeology,” a kind of artistic research; his themes include isolation, oppression, police intervention and government authority.

LAURINA PAPERINA

Braindead

Italian artist Laurina Paperina’s Braindead is a pop-culture feat of comedy and commentary. In the 80 colorful drawings included here, Paperina applies her free-wheeling brand of cultural satire to a wide range of iconic characters. Who else could mix Homer Simpson (whose brain is depicted as a donut with sprinkles), Jackson Pollock and the Pope in one sharply observed book? Yes, there’s plenty of Technicolor brain tissue, but instead of leaving the viewer feeling repulsed, Paperina uses her stylized graphic motifs to hit on the essence of each character - what makes them tick - and as a result, the surprising clumps of brain become laugh-aloud funny.
