Manuela Ammer (Ed.)

Emerging Berlin artist Jenni Tischer’s work weaves an unlikely bond between minimalist sculpture and the frayed, human history of textile work. Vividly conveyed in this compact beautifully illustrated exhibition catalog accompanying her survey show at Mumok, Vienna (2014)—the result of winning the Art Basel 2013 Baloise art prize—Tischer’s installations blur the boundary between display and artwork: walls and floor interlock, open cubes intertwine with “Viennese netting” recalling Thonet chairs, architectural objects allude to looms and pin cushions. Tischer ponders the impact of the anachronistic practice of weaving: How is human labor inscribed into its materials and surfaces? Why are textiles gaining momentum in the digital age? Between “pins” (needles) and PINs (personal identification numbers), Tischer considers the memory of materials and the digital encoding of identities, staking out a space for the human in a polished design world. Essays by curator Manuela Ammer, critic Ines Kleesattel, art historian Karola Kraus and artist Barbara Kapusta.

The Path from Hiroshige to Contemporary Artists

Hiroshige’s early 19th-century series, Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, is a masterpiece of ukiyo-e (woodblock printing) landscape tableaux. The artist takes the viewer along one of the main roads of Japan, linking Edo (now Tokyo) with Kyoto and a famous scenic route that includes celebrated sights like Mt. Fuji. This unprecedented – and stunningly beautiful – exhibition catalog delicately and faithfully reproduces Hiroshige’s prints, and goes on to works by other important artists following in the footsteps of this classic series: 62 woodblocks from the 1960s by Shiko Munakata; Yoshitomo Nara’s In the floating world, No Nukes!; a mix of samurai and modern scenes by Akira Yamaguchi; and photos of a magnificent painting-installation by up-and-coming artist Kazuyuki Takezaki. Two centuries of Japanese art and artists on one timeless theme.

Nikolaus Hirsch and Sophie von Olfers

From 2003-2007, one of the most exciting exhibit spaces in London was Flaca, in the home of artist Tom Humphreys. This copiously illustrated exhibition catalog looks back on those days through Humphreys’ eyes. It’s a perfect match with the Frankfurt-based museum, Portikus, and its tradition of interpreting the exhibition space in forever new ways. Humphreys made no pretense to offer an illustrative or historically accurate representation of his activities in those days; he created a group show with more than 40 artists, some of whom never showed at Flaca. The catalog expresses the energetic, engaged style that characterized Humphreys and his creation, Flaca. Contributing writers are Thomas Bayrle, Christian Egger, Nikolaus Hirsch, Sophie von Olfers with essays recalling the excitement of discovering artists in this cutting edge space, its historical chronology and much more.

Pictures on the Wall of Your Heart

American artist Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004) emerged as an artist in the 1960s Pop Art scene – alongside Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Rosenquist – with his Great American Nudes series. Throughout his career he also made still lifes, which are the focus of this exhibition catalog. Using some of the artist’s most accomplished works, the curators examine individual, incremental changes and developments in his work via the still lifes, from the found-object collages in his early career to shaped canvases to laser cut-outs from the late 1990s. The catalog investigates the deeply “American” quality of Wesselmann’s works, as well as his sly allusions to European tradition.

The Films of Hito Steyerl

Nick Aikens (Ed.)

Hito Steyerl is one of today’s most respected—and presciently relevant— practitioners and theorizers of modern visual culture. She speculates on the impact of the Internet and digitization on the fabric of our everyday lives. As prolific in her writing as in her film and image-making, this book gathers a decade’s worth of the artist’s own writing alongside critical essays and readings of Steyerl’s practice. Published to accompany a major mid-career retrospective at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, this publication is a charged slideshow of the artist’s extraordinary investigations into the status, circulation, and materiality of images. Texts and writings by Sven Lütticken, Karen Archey, Ana Teixeira Pinto, Nick Aikens, Thomas Elsaesser, Pablo Lafuente and David Riff are spliced with over one hundred pages of color stills and documentation of three never-seen-before works: Liquidity Inc. (2014), Shunga (2014) and Surveillance: Disappearance (2013)…
