Marcel Duchamp: The Bachelor Stripped BareMarcel Duchamp: The Bachelor Stripped Bare

A Biography

Published by MFA Publications.
By Alice Goldfarb Marquis.

Marcel Duchamp: The Bachelor Stripped Bare is not the first full-length biography of Duchamp, but it is the first to present him in all his human contradictions and to take a refreshingly objective look at his real contribution to modern art. The well-known facts are explored here: Duchamp's myriad personal relations (with family, lovers, collectors and artists ranging from Man Ray, Picabia and Breton to the Stettheimer sisters and the Arensbergs); the creation of major works such as the "readymades" and the "Large Glass"; his passion for chess and supposed abandonment of art. But beyond this, author Alice Goldfarb Marquis looks past the diffident, humorous mask that Duchamp wore with acquaintance and intimate alike, to explore the passions and insecurities that motivated many of his artistic and personal evolutions. She separates the artist from the con artist, to determine just how profound an influence Duchamp has really been. Based on numerous unpublished sources and first-hand interviews, Marcel Duchamp: The Bachelor Stripped Bare stands as a groundbreaking contribution to the ever-burgeoning field of Duchamp studies.

If Looks Could Kill: Cinema's Images of Fashion, Crime and ViolenceIf Looks Could Kill: Cinema's Images of Fashion, Crime and Violence

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Marketa Uhlirova, Elizabeth Wilson. Text by Caroline Evans, Roger K. Burton, Tom Gunning.

From stolen pearls to a glove left at the scene of the crime, an excess of red lipstick or the postmodern gangster silhouette, If Looks Could Kill explores the compelling links between cinema, fashion, crime and violence. Tackling themes such as Disguise, The Expression of Desire, Juvenile Delinquency and The Corruption of Beauty, this volume features a string of underworld characters (and their prosecutors) whose highly effective styling and sartorial gestures helped define cinematic genres from Detective to Thriller, Gangster, Film Noir and Horror. Edited by Marketa Uhlirova, Co-founder, Director and Curator of London's Fashion in Film Festival, If Looks Could Kill features an extensive line-up of new and exciting essays on fashion and crime in cinema by such writers as Tom Gunning, Elizabeth Wilson, Caroline Evans, Roger K. Burton and Charlie T. Porter.

Climb Out of the Cellar of Your Mind

Published by JRP|Ringier.

A headlong plunge into the dregs of contemporary human futility, Anxiety and Depression--published in JRP|Ringier's Hapax series--describes, with relentless and clerical rigor, how we live now. Author Scott King has packed this almost anthropological survey with case studies in self-hatred, anxiety and despair, as well as exercises in which the reader can measure his or her daily humiliations.

Beate Gütschow: SBeate Gütschow: S

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Ulrich Bischoff. Text by Anna-Catharina Gebbers.

At first glance, the large-scale black-and-white photographs of German photographer Beate Gütschow (born 1970) seem to be straightforward documents of urban scenes. In fact, every pebble and every hubcap is completely orchestrated, for these images are the result of considerable digital manipulation. This monograph surveys her ongoing explorations in this realm.

Jesper Just: Film Works 2001 - 2007Jesper Just: Film Works 2001 - 2007

Published by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art.
Preface by Sophie von Olfers. Introduction by Nina Folkersma. Text by Andrew Renton, Ilsa Colsell, Jacob Lillemose.

Jesper Just, who works mainly in film, represents one of the most interesting and pressing artistic positions in moving image production today. Just has stated that he does not seek to create narratives that must be "read" or "understood" in any particular way, suggesting that there is not solely one way of interpreting the dynamics between the characters. Rather, the works should be regarded as incessantly shifting parts in Just's larger sociopolitical inquiry into the nature of human interaction and relationships--their pitfalls, failures and perversions, but also their dignity and beauty.
At almost 250 pages, this substantial new publication includes a wide range of images, including documentation of a recent shoot in Copenhagen, and a selection of musical scores by composer and conductor Petri Sirviö, Just's collaborator on the 2006 trilogy, It Will All End In Tears. Just is represented in New York by Perry Rubenstein Gallery.

Merce CunninghamMerce Cunningham

Published by Charta.
Text by Germano Celant, David Vaughan, Barbara Frost, Yvonne Rainer, Paul Taylor, Lucinda Childs, John Cage, Karole Armitage, Nam June Paik, Jasper Johns, Merce Cunningham, et al.

Merce Cunningham (1919–2009) pioneered the contemporary conception of dance as a moving image of life. His innovations in the field date back to the 1940s, when, after meeting composer John Cage, he proposed the separation of music and dance and applied chance procedures to the structure of his dances; later, he used technology to further extend and blur the medium's boundaries. Collecting testimonies from Cunningham's friends and collaborators, this volume surveys the milestones in Cunningham's career, from 1944 to 1999. Composers such as Gordon Mumma, Earle Brown and John Cage, artists such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Nam June Paik and dancers such as Yvonne Rainer, Douglas Dunn and Carolyn Brown describe their collaborations with Cunningham over the past half-century, in interviews, essays and memoirs, alongside Cunningham's own writings and a wealth of illustrations.

Izima Kaoru: Landscapes With a CorpseIzima Kaoru: Landscapes With a Corpse

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Yuko Hasegawa, Peter Weiermair.

Edgar Allan Poe wrote, "The death of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world." Ophelia, Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina are evidence that other writers and artists have agreed. Fusing Poe's sentiment with the Buddhist imperative to muse daily on one's own death, Japanese photographer Izima Kaoru asks Japanese and European actresses and models to collaborate with him in staging their own demises. The resulting images bring a melancholic palate and impeccable technique to an assortment of figures who have expired with perfect coiffure--made up and sporting couture by such designers as Vivienne Westwood, Gucci, Prada and Dior. There is something filmic about Kaoru's framing, which alternates between long shot and close-up, yet the narrative remains shadowy. This volume assembles for the first time 43 such scenes from 1993 to the present. They are influenced by art historical references ranging from traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e woodcuts to contemporary Pop.
