Sabine HornigSabine Hornig

Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Text by Hans Belting, Inka Graeve Ingelmann. Interview by Sophie Tottie.

This volume focuses on the photography of multimedia artist Sabine Hornig (born 1964), in particular the Windows series, begun in 2001, which now comprises some 50 large-scale photographs. Hornig presents the windows as pictures that unite several perspectives at once: the view into an interior, the reflection of the world outside on the window pane and the window pane itself.

Max Beckmann: The LandscapesMax Beckmann: The Landscapes

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Bernhard Mendes Bürgi, Nina Peter. Text by Hans Belting, Eva Demski.

The landscape paintings of Max Beckmann (1884-1950) are increasingly understood as fundamental to his achievement, equivalent in stature to his portraits but operating as the ground for a very different side of Beckmann's sensibility. His depictions of urban landscapes, lakeside scenes and country lanes are without the implication of allegory found in his portraiture; while they do often serve as records of places visited, they also frequently cite works from art history, and occasionally insert the artist into their narratives via personal effects positioned in the foreground, subtly orienting the scene around a human presence. Some of Beckmann's most haunting paintings fall within this genre, such as his “Moon Landscape” of 1925, in which elongated tubular rolls of cloud overhang the city nocturne, embellishing its mood with abstract unease. With more than 100 color plates, this volume shows Beckmann to have been among modernism's foremost exponents of landscape painting.

The Digital WunderkammerThe Digital Wunderkammer

10 Chapters on the Iconic Turn

Published by Wilhelm Fink Verlag, Munich.
By Hubert Burda. Text by Peter Sloterdijk, Bazon Brock, Hans Belting, Horst Bredekamp, Friedrich Kittler.

As digital technology advances at breakneck speed, Images are circulating quicker than ever before. But what is the status of the image in the digital era? In The Digital Wunderkammer, art historian Hubert Burda (born 1940) examines the "iconic turn" in ten themed chapters and conversations with leading cultural theorists. In the first chapter, "The View Through the Window," Burda traces the connection between perspectival painting and the television, demonstrating in the second chapter how the image requires a frame, which in turn requires a material vehicle--the topic of the third chapter--that in our era has become a non-material vehicle with its own formal parameters. In the fourth chapter, "The Mobile Image," Burda shows how images have always been linked to portability, but now migrate to an unprecedented degree, so that anyone with a personal device can globally disseminate, say, footage from a concert via Youtube. A discussion of the capacity of individual images to placate or ennervate leads to a seventh chapter on the appetite for the Sublime and the rhetoric and representation of power throughout art history. Following a discussion of the democratization of celebrity culture, Burda proposes that the Google search box is perhaps the most interesting "interface" of our times, analogous to the seventeenth-century cabinet of curiosities (or wunderkammer). Conversations with Friedrich Kittler, Peter Sloterdijk, Bazon Brock, Horst Bredekamp and Hans Belting further extend this imaginative debate on the "iconic turn."

Variantology 4Variantology 4

On Deep Time Relations of Arts, Sciences and Technologies In the Arabic-Islamic World and Beyond

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Eckhard Fürlus and Siegfried Zielinski. Text by Ulrich Alertz, Hans Belting, Arianna Borrelli, Almut Sh. Bruckstein, Vilem Flusser, Irit Batsry, et al.

Variantology 4 revisits the early western encounter with the technological marvels of early Arabic culture. It presents scholarship on a range of subjects relating to the overlap between the arts and the sciences, from musical automata to theories of music and dance. Along the way, an impressive roster of historians of the arts and the sciences transport us to such phenomena as the ninth-century House of Wisdom in Baghdad, where programmed music automata were conceived and built; to a darkened chamber in Cairo, where in the early eleventh century the laws of seeing and visual perception were rewritten; to the Al-Jazira region between the two rivers Euphrates and Tigris, where in the eleventh and twelfth centuries automaton theaters were devised in fascinating intricacy. Andalusia, India, Iran, Istanbul, Syria and the Three Moons monastic school in Beirut provide further stops on an expedition that celebrates technological marvels and wonders and the pivotal role of Arabic-Islamic culture in the prehistory of the arts and media.

Looking through Duchamp’s DoorLooking through Duchamp’s Door

Art and Perspective in the Work of Duchamp, Sugimoto and Jeff Wall

Published by Walther König, Köln.
By Hans Belting.

In this new book by Hans Belting, three essays are united by one theme—the persistence of perspective after its supposed demise in the hands of modernism. Belting addresses perspective in the works of Marcel Duchamp, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Jeff Wall, in the process opening up new approaches to their work. According to Belting, the door that Marcel Duchamp installed for his final masterpiece, “Etant Donnés” (which Belting tells us was inspired by a bout of seasickness on a trip to Buenos Aires) was a decisive touchstone for both Sugimoto and Wall in their formative years, and he demonstrates how they have referenced its maker many times since. Belting's argument, embellished with many illustrations, makes for a thorough reassessment of perspective.

The Global Art WorldThe Global Art World

Audiences, Markets, and Museums

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Hans Belting, Andrea Buddensieg. Text by Louisa Augita, Ana Belluzo, Hans Belting.

This is the second publication from the ongoing research series, Global Art and the Museum (GAM), which was initiated in 2001 by German art historian Hans Belting and artist, writer and curator Peter Weibel at the ZKM Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany. The last 20 years have seen a rapid globalization of the art world, resulting in geographic decentralization and a shift away from a primarily Western perspective. GAM's aim is to analyze the effect of these changes on the art market, museums and art criticism. This volume comprises a collection of essays by experts--such as Claude Ardouin, Keeper of the African Section of London's British Museum, Koeki Claessens, Director of Central Africa's Royal Museum and Eugene Tan, Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore--who presented at the 2007 conference.

Contemporary Art and the Museum: A Global PerspectiveContemporary Art and the Museum: A Global Perspective

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Andrea Buddensieg, Peter Weibel. Text by Claude Ardouin, Hans Belting.

All over the world, contemporary art is moving into traditional museums, its institutionalization an ongoing proposition with swiftly evolving practices. And more than ever before, the art of the moment is being made and collected internationally. Global art production is affecting museums everywhere, even those in traditional centers of cultural influence. For international artists, the question is how to get themselves and their work to cultural centers; for their home states and museums, the question is how to assimilate globalized contemporary art and its local stars. While institutions outside the West are often also outside a crucial loop of money and influence, the increasing range of biennials--from Sao Paulo to Senegal's Dak'Art--is redrawing the map. This essay collection explores the impact of contemporary non-western art and the world's local museums. Writers include Peter Weibel of ZKM Karlsruhe and Claude Ardouin of the British Museum.

Essay by Hans Belting.

This lavish book is the only complete collection of the renowned Theaters series, in which Hiroshi Sugimoto opens his shutter as a film begins and closes it as it concludes. "Different movies give different brightnesses. If it's an optimistic story, I usually end up with a bright screen; if it's a sad story, it's a dark screen. Occult movie? Very dark."
