Dorothy Iannone: You Who Read Me With Passion Now Must Forever Be My FriendsDorothy Iannone: You Who Read Me With Passion Now Must Forever Be My Friends

Published by Siglio.
Edited by Lisa Pearson. Text by Trinie Dalton.

For over five decades, Dorothy Iannone has been making exuberantly sexual and joyfully transgressive image–text works. Karen Rosenberg wrote of her in The New York Times: “High priestess, matriarch, sex goddess: the self-taught American artist Dorothy Iannone has been called all these things and more. Since the early 1960s she has been making paintings, sculptures and artist’s books that advocate ‘ecstatic unity,’ most often achieved through lovemaking.” Beginning with the famous “An Icelandic Saga,” in which Iannone narrates her journey to Iceland (where she meets Dieter Roth and leaves her husband to live with him), this singular volume traces Iannone’s search for “ecstatic unity” from its carnal beginnings in her relationships with Roth and other men into its spiritual incarnation as she becomes a practicing Buddhist. Reproducing several previously unpublished or long-out-of-print works in their entirety (such as Danger in Düsseldorf, The Whip, “An Explosive Interlude”), as well as longer excerpts from rarely-seen works like A Cookbook and Berlin Beauties, this volume gives readers the chance to read her work with sustained attention, and enjoy the sophistication of the stories she tells and the visual–textual embellishments that make them so irresistible.
Associated with Fluxus through her close friendships with Emmett Williams, Robert Filliou and Ben Vautier, as well as most well-known for her relationship with Dieter Roth, Dorothy Iannone (born 1933) nevertheless has her own distinct aesthetic style and substantive concerns. Her first major museum show in the U.S. came when she was 75 in 2008 at the New Museum, shortly after her “orgasm box” titled “I Was Thinking of You” was included in the Whitney Biennial in 2006, and she has recently attained more recognition with solo shows at the Camden Arts Centre, Palais de Tokyo and the Berlinischer Galerie.

SweetheartsSweethearts

Published by Walther König, Köln.
By Emmett Williams.

A founding member of Fluxus and the concrete poetry movement, Emmett Williams (1925-2007) made several performances and poems that stand today as defining gems of those genres. Among them is the book-length concrete poem Sweethearts, first published by Something Else Press (where Williams was editor in chief) in 1968, and back in print for the first time, still sporting its classic cover by Marcel Duchamp. Sweethearts is an anagrammatic erotic encounter between a "he" and a "she," whose entire vocabulary is derived from the word "sweethearts." The letters maintain the same spacing in every word on each page, lending the volume a flipbook dimension that Williams enhances by organizing the text to read backwards, so that the reader can flip the book with her or his left hand (thus the front cover is on the back, and vice versa). Richard Hamilton described Sweethearts as being "to concrete poetry as Wuthering Heights is to the English novel... compelling in its emotional scope, readable, a sweetly heartfelt, jokey, crying, laughing, tender expression of love."

Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics and PaintingFrida & Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting

Published by Art Gallery of Ontario/High Museum of Art Atlanta.
Edited by Dot Tuer, Elliott King.

Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) and Diego Rivera’s (1886–1957) legendary passion for each other and for Mexico’s revolutionary culture during the 1920s and 1930s have made them among the twentieth century’s most famous artists. During their life together as a married couple, Rivera achieved prominence as a muralist artist, while Kahlo’s intimate paintings were embraced by the Surrealist movement and the Mexican art world--but neither were especially well known in the broader context of art and modernism. After their deaths in the 1950s, important retrospectives of Kahlo’s work enshrined her as one of the most significant women artists of the twentieth century, somewhat eclipsing Rivera’s international fame as Mexico’s greatest muralist painter. Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting offers a new perspective on their artistic significance for the twenty-first century, one that shows how their paintings reflect both the dramatic story of their lives together and their artistic commitment to the transformative political and cultural values of post-revolutionary Mexico. Frida & Diego features newly photographed color reproductions of 75 paintings and works on paper by both Kahlo and Rivera, rarely reproduced archival photographs and new biographical information on the couple assembled by scholar Dot Tuer. It is published on the occasion of an exhibition assembled from three distinguished Mexican private collections on Mexican art, and presented at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the High Museum of Art Atlanta.

Gilbert & George: Art TitlesGilbert & George: Art Titles

1967-2010 in Alphabetical Order, Catalogue Raisonné

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Inigo Philbrick.

Gilbert & George Art Titles offers a new spin on the catalogue raisonné: a complete catalogue of the titles of all of the duo's works, from 1970 to the present, in the form of a continuous poetical index. Designed by the artists, it commences with their first performance at Nigel Greenwood Gallery in 1970, "3 Living Pieces"--flanking the title with the year on the left margin and the acronym "LS" ("living sculpture") on the right--and opens out into the more poetical titles for which they are known. The catalogue of works is also printed alphabetically, and each title is identified with an acronym indicating its format. Spanning more than 40 years of exhibitions, pictures, postcards, books and other formats, this volume constitutes an epic of accidental verse.

Liberty or Love! and Mourning for MourningLiberty or Love! and Mourning for Mourning

Published by Atlas Press.
By Robert Desnos. Introduction and translation by Terry Hale.

Mystery, the marvelous, the city of Paris transmuted by love, and Sanglot the Corsair’s pursuit of the siren Louise Lame: these are the essential ingredients of Liberty or Love!, a masterpiece of early Surrealism written by Robert Desnos (1900–1945) and first published in 1924 to immediate acclaim. Characters appear and disappear at whim; they walk underwater and accept the most astounding coincidences with calm nonchalance. This crown jewel of Surrealist eroticism is part hymn to the erotic and part adventure story illumined by the shades of Lautréamont, Jack the Ripper and Sade. Desnos was famously lauded by André Breton--in his First Manifesto of Surrealism--for having come “closest to the Surrealist truth,” and his novel is a dream at once violent and tender--the perfect embodiment, in fact, of the Surrealist spirit: joyful and despairing, and effortlessly scandalous. This new hardback edition also includes Mourning for Mourning, Desnos’ first book--his own selection of his early stories from the “period of sleeping fits” and automatic writing.

Nan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual DependencyNan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency

Published by Aperture.
Edited by Marvin Heiferman, Mark Holborn, Suzanne Fletcher. Text by Nan Goldin.

First published in 1986, Nan Goldin's The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggles for intimacy and understanding among the friends and lovers whom Goldin describes as her "tribe." These photographs described a lifestyle that was visceral, charged and seething with a raw appetite for living, and the book soon became the swan song for an era that reached its peak in the early 1980s. Twenty-five years later, Goldin's lush color photography and candid style still demand that the viewer encounter their profound intensity head-on. As she writes: "Real memory, which these pictures trigger, is an invocation of the color, smell, sound and physical presence, the density and flavor of life." Through an accurate and detailed record of Goldin's life, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency records a personal odyssey as well as a more universal understanding of the different languages men and women speak. The book's influence on photography and other aesthetic realms has continued to grow, making it a classic of contemporary photography. This anniversary edition features all-new image separations produced using state-of-the-art technologies and specially prepared reproduction files, which offer a lush, immersive experience of this touchstone monograph.

Sophie Calle: Take Care of YourselfSophie Calle: Take Care of Yourself

Published by Dis Voir/Actes Sud.
Text by Sophie Calle.

In this remarkable artist's book, French conceptual artist/provocateur Sophie Calle presents 107 outside interpretations of a "breakup" e-mail she received from her lover the day he ended their affair. Featuring a stamped pink metallic cover, multiple paper changes, special bound-in booklets, bright green envelopes containing DVDs and even Braille endpapers, it is a deeply poignant investigation of love and loss, published to coincide with the 2007 Venice Biennale--where Calle served as that fair's French representative. All of the interpreters of Calle's breakup letter were women, and each was asked to analyze the document according to her profession--so that a writer comments on its style, a justice issues judgment, a lawyer defends Calle's ex-lover, a psychoanalyst studies his psychology, a mediator tries to find a path towards reconciliation, a proofreader provides a literal edit of the text, etc. In addition, Calle asked a variety of performers, including Nathalie Dessay, Laurie Anderson and Carla Bruni, among others, to act the letter out. She filmed the singers and actresses and photographed the other contributors, so that each printed interpretation stands alongside at least one riveting image of its author, and some are also accompanied by digital documentation. The result is a fascinating study and a deeply moving experience--as well as an artwork in its own right. Already a collector's item, this is a universal document of how it feels to grieve for love.

Seiichi Hayashi: Gold Pollen and Other StoriesSeiichi Hayashi: Gold Pollen and Other Stories

Published by PictureBox.
Edited with translation and text by Ryan Holmberg. Text by Seiichi Hayashi.

Seiichi Hayashi was a leading figure in the hotbed of avant-garde artistic production of 1960s and early 70s Tokyo. He is best known for his lyrical and experimental manga for Garo, the famous alternative comics magazine. This volume collects a selection of Hayashi’s most important manga from this period, including Red Dragonfly (1968), Yamauba’s Lullaby (1968) and Gold Pollen (1971). Published here in their original full color, these stories mix traditional Japanese aesthetics with Pop art sensibilities, and range in topic from the legacies of Japanese rightwing nationalism and World War II, to the pervasive influence of America over 1960s Japanese youth culture. This first color reprinting of Hayashi’s work captures the vivid experimentation of Japanese art at this time. In addition, Hayashi’s youth and beginnings as an artist are illuminated by an autobiographical essay from 1972, translated here for the first time into English. Art historian Ryan Holmberg discusses Hayashi’s place in postwar Japanese art and manga, as well as his wider contributions to the Tokyo avant-garde as a designer and experimental animator. This lavishly illustrated book is likely to have widespread crossover appeal for design and fashion aficionados, as well as for students of the manga genre.
Seiichi Hayashi (born 1945) is best known for his lyrical and experimental manga for Garo, the famous alternative comics magazine. His animated films have been screened at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, among other institutions. Since the 1970s Hayashi has been a nationally revered illustrator, famous for his classically informed depictions of contemporary women and an important influence on acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki, among others. Hayashi lives and works just outside of Tokyo.

Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia?Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia?

Published by OCA/Koenig Books.
Edited by Marta Kuzma, Pablo Lafuente. Introduction by Marta Kuzma.

Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia? is a reader that brings together essays, artists’ writings and works, and countercultural publications to examine the juncture of the political and the erotic during the 1960s and 70s. Adopting as its starting point the postwar perception of Scandinavia as a socialist utopia of sexual freedom, it explores how the avant-garde artistic and cultural production of the time gravitated towards sexual and political liberation. Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia? is the conclusion of a four-year research project, and includes many texts published in English here for the first time, by philosophers, artists, psychologists and theorists such as Knut Ove Arntzen, Stan Brakhage, Norman O. Brown, Valie Export, Öyvind Fahlström, Herbert Marcuse, Jonas Mekas, Henry Miller, Juliet Mitchell, Katti Anker Mųller, Jųrgen Nash, Håvard Friis Nilsen, Claes Oldenburg, Elise Ottesen-Jensen, Wilhelm Reich, Yvonne Rainer, Jacqueline Rose, Barney Rosset, Barbara Rubin, Jens Jųrgen Thorsen and Otto Weininger.

The Journeys of CasanovaThe Journeys of Casanova

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Marco Carminati.

Having lived in cities including Vienna, Paris, Rome, London, Berlin, St. Petersburg and Madrid, Giacomo Casanova (1725–1796) could be described as the first cosmopolitan. On his tireless jaunts through eighteenth-century Europe, he not only encountered the beautiful and erotic but also powerful figures and artists of his time. Whether Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Frederick the Great, Johann Joachim Winckelmann, or (probably) even Mozart, Casanova knew them all. This large-format illustrated volume follows in the footsteps of the well-known libertine and couples passages from his memoirs, remarkable in so many aspects, with magnificent early photographs and charming hand-colored book illustrations. Although it was not until nearly a century later that photography's first pioneers roamed the alleys of Venice or attempted to capture the flair of Paris, these contemporary documents give an impression of the wonders that the great seducer encountered on his Grand Tour.

Walter Robinson: Paintings and Other IndulgencesWalter Robinson: Paintings and Other Indulgences

Published by University Galleries of Illinois State University.
Text by Charles F. Stuckey, Barry Blinderman, Vanessa Meikle Schulmen.

By 1980 Walter Robinson (born 1950) had established himself as a critic for Art in America and member of the New York artists' collective Collaborative Projects. He became notable for paintings of square-jawed detective-hero types and swooning vixens based on pulp romance covers. Employing what critic Carlo McCormick termed a "devious sense of irony done with incredible sincerity," he examined painting's relationship to mass-culture images of desire, mining lurid illustrations from the 1940s and 50s and rerepresenting them in a style culled from "how to paint" books. Robinson's subsequent paintings of beer cans and bottles, pharmaceuticals, fast-food burgers, Lands' End models and online erotic "selfies" continue to address our indulgence of longing and excess in a media-saturated world. Walter Robinson: Paintings and Other Indulgences is the first monograph on Robinson, with photographs of 140 paintings spanning his 35-year career.

Private Collection: A History of Erotic Photography, 1850–1940Private Collection: A History of Erotic Photography, 1850–1940

Published by Other Criteria Books.
Text by Danny Moynihan.

Private Collection is a unique and fascinating publication of over 250 pornographic photographs from Danny Moynihan's personal collection, including images made by some of the earliest erotic photographers, right up to the 1940s. This publication visually documents attitudes about sex and pornography, and by so doing shows how they were developed alongside a 'correct' social and cultural behavioural code of restraint, particularly with regard to sexual intercourse and role-play. By providing a historical overview of nudity and sex in photography, the book offers an intriguing insight into the way pornography was made alongside the development of photography. Private Collection includes an extremely readable and informative essay by Cressida Connolly which discusses pornography from an historical perspective, the way the sex industry was used in the 19th century, and how this affected the production, function and availability of pornography: "There were no rules. It is the revolutionary newness of these images which makes them as exciting as their subjects."

PybracPybrac

Published by Wakefield Press.
By Pierre Lou˙s. Introduction and translation by Geoffrey Longnecker. Illustrations by Toyen.

By turns amusing and offensive, Pierre Lou˙s’ Pybrac is possibly the filthiest collection of poetry ever published, and offers a taste of what the Marquis de Sade might have produced if he had ever turned his hand to verse. First published posthumously in 1927, Pybrac was, with The Young Girl’s Handbook of Good Manners, one of the first of Lou˙s’ secret erotic manuscripts to see clandestine publication. Composed of 313 rhymed alexandrine quatrains, the majority of them starting with the phrase "I do not like to see…," Pybrac is in form a mockery of sixteenth-century chancellor poet Guy Du Faur, Seigneur de Pibrac, whose moralizing quatrains were common literary fare for young French readers until the nineteenth century. Lou˙s spent his life coming up with his own ever-growing collection of rhymed moral precepts (suitable only for adult readers): a dizzying litany describing everything he "disliked" witnessing, from lesbianism, sodomy, incest and prostitution to perversions extreme enough to give even a modern reader pause. With the rest of his erotic manuscripts, the original collection of over 2,000 quatrains was auctioned off and scattered throughout private collections; but like everything erotic, what remains, collected here, conveys an impression of unending absurdity and near-hypnotic obsession.

Foreword by Cindy Gallop. Text by Ellen Jong.

American photographer Ellen Jong (born 1976) describes Getting To Know My Husband's Cock as “a love song in photographs” and “a journey in self-discovery that informs a newfound woman.” In her familiar snapshot style, Jong photographs her husband up close and personal, in all states of dress, tumescence and indeed consciousness.

Aura Rosenberg: Head ShotsAura Rosenberg: Head Shots

Photographs by Aura Rosenberg

Published by Stop Over Press.
Photographs by Aura Rosenberg.

Aura Rosenberg is concerned with the visible expression of sexual desire. Capturing the moment of orgasm on camera is usually reserved for the voyeur, the hidden witness. What Rosenberg has done is present herself as the public's witness via the camera, inviting a number of men into her studio to reenact the ecstasy of release, the moment when potency and vulnerability coexist. The result is a collection of extraordinary photographs that run the gamut of psychosexual expression. Whether her subjects were really giving their best shot or simply indulging in sublime fakery is just one of the very pertinent questions these pictures throw out. In acting out their most abandoned sexual and emotional moment before her lens, Rosenberg's subjects invite us to step beyond the traditional limits of voyeurism. These beautiful, curious and erotic images reserve the traditional male-on-female gaze and relieve it of some of its associations with misogyny and perversity. Writers Lynn Tillman and Gary Indiana reflect together on the experience of witnessing these photographs.
