Amateur. Wendelien van Oldenborgh.

Gordon, Tom Holert, Nataša Ilić, Charl Landvreugd, Sven Lütticken, Anna Manubens, Ruth Noack, Grant Watson Amateur is the first comprehensive publication about Wendelien van Oldenborgh’s moving image works, and their accompanying installations. Developed over the past ten years of her practice, these works explore communication and interaction between individuals, often against the backdrop of a unique public location, in order to cast attention on repressed, incomplete, and unresolved histories. Through the staging of these encounters on film, van Oldenborgh enables multiple perspectives and voices to coexist, and brings to light political, social, and cultural relationships and how they are manifested through social interactions.

Animals. Edited by Filipa Ramos Part of the acclaimed 'Documents of Contemporary Art' series of anthologies.


"Animals have been imperative to art-making since humans first made marks on the walls of subterranean chambers. It is one of the longest threads in the story of culture. This terrific volume features some of the brightest contemporary minds, demonstrating how thinking about other animals in art remains as vital, complex, and paradoxical as it has ever been.” Antoni Gaudi. Ornament, fire and ashes. Columns of smoke - vol. III.

Translated by Graham Thomson softcoverEnglish21 x 16 cm100 halftones images; 140 color plates224 ppISBN: 978-84-939231-6-7 When the Corbusian International Modern style, with its contempt for ornament, imposed itself on architecture, figures like Gaudí (1852-1926) were relegated to the sidelines.

Antoni Gaudi. Ornament, fire and ashes. Columns of smoke - vol. III.

In this volume, Lahuerta situates Gaudí in his context and vindicates his fin-de-siècle bohemian modernity.Embodied in such powerful images as the spires of the Sagrada Familia and the flames rising from burning churches during the Tragic Week of 1909, the story takes us back to the Barcelona of the early twentieth century, when class struggle threatened to topple the prevailing capitalist model. Drawing on rare original documents collected over several decades, the author shows that Gaudí was not an isolated eccentric but an architect who was keenly aware of the key theories and major works of his time and the creator of revolutionary technical innovations.

Craft, Community and the Material Culture of Place and Politics, 19th-20th Century.

More than two centuries of industrialization have not extinguished handmade goods; rather, the broader force of industrialization has redefined and continues to define the context of creation, deployment and use of craft objects. With object study at the core, this book brings together a collection of essays that address the past and present of craft production, its use and meaning within a range of community settings from the Huron Wendat of colonial Quebec to the Girls’ Friendly Society of twentieth-century England.

Daniel Kruger. Schmuck 1974-2014 Jewellery. Between Nature and Artifice.

Experimental, unconventional and individual: an irrepressible curiosity and boundless creativity in dealing with materials, forms and techniques are all hallmarks of the work by the jewellery artist Daniel Kruger. The current publication documents the contemporaneity of the diverse possibilities of his expression and opens up a pictorial world of aesthetic pleasure. Very rarely does a jewellery artist manage to find new pictorial worlds of such a personal nature during the course of their creative work so freely and unencumbered as Daniel Kruger (born 1951, South Africa). His experiments with the most diverse materials, decoration, forms and structures testify to an exuberant creativity for which he was honoured with the renowned Herbert Hofmann Award for Art Jewellery in 1987 and 2005.

David Altmejd. David Altmejd is known for his intricate and highly worked room-size installations and sculptures. Seamlessly moving between a variety of aesthetic modes - from an almost ascetic minimalism in works employing plaster and mirror to works teeming with accumulations of crystals, gold chain, thread, taxidermied birds and animals, among other objects - Altmejd’s work offers beautifully wrought meditations on the cycles of life and death, interiority and exteriority, sexuality, and spirituality. In the most comprehensive consideration of the artist’s work to date, the volume includes four essays by a range of writers, who by providing different entry points to Altmejd’s art, animate and engage the rich and diverse ideas that characterize his important practice.

From Experiments in Art and Technology to Art After the Internet Edited by Omar Kholeif Accompanying a landmark exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery, this catalogue explores the impact of computer and networked technologies on artists from the mid-1960s to the present day.

Beginning with US artists Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman’s 1966 Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) with Bell Laboratories engineers (followed the first network experiment linking two computers in 1965), and including new and rarely seen multimedia works, film, painting, sculpture, photography and drawings by over 70 artists such as Cory Arcangel, Roy Ascott, Jeremy Bailey, Judith Barry, James Bridle, Constant Dullaart, Oliver Laric, Vera Molnar, Trevor Paglen, Nam June Paik, Ryan Trecartin and Ulla Wiggen, this timely publication tells the story of an interconnected global visual culture marked by mass social and political change.

Art in Europe 1945-1968. Francis Bacon. Logica van de gewaarwording. From art brut to art without boundaries. Limited stock This book recounts, from a historical and critical point of view, the spectacular evolution in the perception and the appreciation of works produced by self-taught creators that do not always themselves claim to be artists. The transition from art brut to art without boundaries reflects a century of radical aesthetic, sociological and institutional changes that gave rise to a fundamental questioning about what is the definition of art and the artist’s status, and indeed when can a creation be legitimately called a work of art.

This publication concentrates on the roles of three emblematic protagonists in the field of asylum, brut and outsider art: Hans Prinzhorn, Jean Dubuffet and Harald Szeemann. Three leading actors who contributed to the theorization and advancement of the perception of artworks often merely apprehended through the prism of the psychic and/or social conditions of the author.

Global activism. Art and conflict in the 21st century. Today political protest often takes the form of spontaneous, noninstitutional, mass action. Mass protests during the Arab Spring showed that established systems of power—in that case, the reciprocal support among Arab dictators and Western democracies—can be interrupted, at least for a short moment in history. These new activist movements often use online media to spread their message. Mass demonstrations from Tahrir Square in Cairo to Taksim Square in Istanbul show the power of networked communication to fuel “performative democracy”—at the center of which stands the global citizen. Art is emerging as a public space in which the individual can claim the promises of constitutional and state democracy. Activism may be the first new art form of the twenty-first century.
