Where The …
Stephan Berg & Volker Adolphs (Eds.)
After years of international success as a major contemporary German artist and sculp- tor, Georg Herold (b. 1947) finally felt comfortable preparing for his first comprehensive retrospective at the Kunstmuseum Bonn (September 2017–July 2018). Supporting the exhibition is this generously illustrated catalog presenting three decades of work. Herold, who studied under Sigmar Polke from 1977 until 1983, was part of the ground-breaking group of young German artists (Kippenberger, Büttner, and Oehlen) that swept through the 1980’s changing the conversation in contemporary art forever. From the start, Herold challenged traditional forms of pictorial representation through his use of the most com- mon materials, cardboard, and paper mache, while presenting his subject matters filled with irony. Essays by Volker Adolphs, Stephan Berg, Georg Herold, Glen O’Brien, Jochen Stremmel, and Kerstin Stremmel. This is Herold’s third publication with Snoeck.

In her work, German minimalist artist Katharina Hinsberg (b. 1967) focuses on a complex analysis of the genre of drawing and its historical, technical, and spatial contexts. With her new artist book Sequence: Drawings 1–117, Hinsberg presents for the first time a new series of 117 colored pencil drawings of horizontal lines on a grid. With each drawing, a new color is added, growing and then shrinking or disappearing, whereby a dense, colored hatching is created by the movement of her hand. Without spacing, lines and rows turn into color fields that continue and change from page to page. The underlying grid consists of 23 fields across and 30 lines high, each field measuring 5 x 5 mm. The elegant, complex works in Sequence: Drawings 1-117 is the newest edition to the Kienbaum Artists’ Book series.
