MARIO PFEIFER

A Formal Film in Nine Episodes,
Prologue and Epilogue—A Critical Reader

Susanne Gaensheimer & Bernd Reiss (Eds.)

Mario Pfeifer’s book is a critical reader that is an integral part of his film project of the same name—an innovative expansion of the genre. In this book, complex explorations of the intercultural, film-historic, political and urban issues discussed in Pfeifer’s film not only surface on the level of texts but become manifest in the materiality of the book itself. The artist’s book was produced in Mumbai, where Pfeifer participated in Columbia University’s Studio X program, and created using six different local printing techniques. In March 2012, Pfeifer and designer Markus Weisbeck of Surface set out the formal aspects of the publication in collaboration with local manufacturer Grandmother India. Texts from Suprio Bhattacharjee, Nikolaus Hirsch, Shanay Jhaveri, Kurnal Rawat and Shuddhabrata Sengupta, among others.

Scrapbooks 1969–1985

Since the 1970s Pfeiffer has worked in graphic design and styling but is best known for his eccentric photo collage work.

Tucked into a handsomely designed slipcase, the book includes a conversation between the artist and critic Martin Jaeggi.

PICASSO IN CONTEMPORARY ART

Dirk Luckow (Ed.)

Picasso’s overabundant sensuality and power of imagination and his wide stylistic and thematic range has provoked responses from artists for over one hundred years. No twentieth-century artist has enjoyed as much attention or been as influential. Featuring a selection of 200 works by 87 artists from Jay Z and Jasper Johns to Dora Maar and Kippenberger, this elegant and substantial exhibition catalog from Hamburg sheds light on Picasso’s artistic reception, beginning in 1912 with Juan Gris’s Portrait of Pablo Picasso. Divided into five sections—Picasso and German art; female artists’ present-day view of Picasso; Picasso’s significance for the political image; Picasso’s global reception; and the polarization between Picasso and Marcel Duchamp—and including essays by art historian Michael Fitzgerald and Pompidou deputy director Didier Ottinger, among others. Detailed discussions of each work in the show that clarify the relationship between Picasso’s work and that of each artist add depth and history to this scholarly catalog.

WALTER PICHLER

Drawings

Throughout a diverse 40-year career, Austrian artist Walter Pichler (1936–2012) was persistently—almost conservatively—fascinated by the human figure, an unusual theme for a member of the avant-garde. Now for the first time, this deeply personal work has been published. Pichler exhibited his primarily architectural and sculptural installations at venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, Documenta IV and the Venice Biennale. Though Pichler’s oeuvre traversed a variety of themes, the body and its sensibilities remained central to the artist, whether through rough figure sketches or his trademark futurist helmets, which become materially and spiritually tangible as states of consciousness. This catalog, devoted to Pichler’s drawing, includes texts from art historian Christian Reeder and MoMA curator Stephanie Weber.

MARCEL PINAS

Artist, More Than An Artist

An immensely talented combination of insider and outsider artist, Marcel Pinas of Surinam uses beautiful, poignant installations to tell the story of his own people, the Maroons, descendants of African slaves. This exceptional monograph combines reproductions and installation photographs with inspiring texts putting the work of this important artist into the context of his threatened native region, the genocidal civil war in Surinam and the African culture of the Caribbean. Besides creating drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations, he has founded an art school, museum and artist-in-residence program for Maroon children, documented in this book. Writes one observer, “It is difficult to overestimate the social significance of his work.”
