When Attitudes Become FormWhen Attitudes Become Form

Bern 1969/Venice 2013

Published by Fondazione Prada.
Edited by Germano Celant. Introduction by Miuccia Prada. Preface by Miuccia Prada, Patrizio Bertelli. Text by Gwen L. Allen, Pierre Bal Blanc, Claire Bishop, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Charles Esche, Boris Groys, Jens Hoffmann, Chus Martínez, Glenn Phillips, Christian Rattemeyer, Dieter Roelstraete, Anne Rorimer, Terry Smith, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Francesco Stocchi, Jan Verwoert. Interviews with Thomas Demand, Rem Koolhaas.

In a daring act of historical reconstruction, the curator Germano Celant, in dialogue with Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaas, has recreated Harald Szeemann’s epochal Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form, held at the Bern Kunsthalle in 1969, and installed by Celant at the magnificent Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice in June–November 2013. Szeemann’s show was a dialogue with the Bern Kunsthalle, and Celant has reprised its spirit by placing the works in dialogue with the Ca’ Corner della Regina--a very different building, in its Venetian grandeur, to the Kunsthalle. This publication is divided into three parts: the first reproduces photo documentation of the original exhibit, the second compiles essays and interviews on Celant’s project and the third includes the installation views of the show in Venice. The book is completed by a "Register" of works included in both shows.

Paola PiviPaola Pivi

Published by Damiani/Perrotin.
Text by Massimilano Gioni, Jens Hoffmann.

Over the course of her two-decade career, the Italian-born, Alaska-based multimedia artist Paola Pivi (born 1971) has fashioned such unlikely objects as a mausoleum made of cookies and a rotating airplane. Many of her sculptures and photographs are comical, as in her pictures of miniaturized designer chairs attached to bare buttocks, or a leopard walking across rows of cappuccino cups. Animals are a recurrent presence throughout, whether taxidermied and rendered sculptural or alive and photographed in unlikely locales (e.g. her tender portrait of two zebras, their heads hooked around each other’s necks, against a backdrop of mountain snow). This volume is published for Pivi’s 2013 exhibition at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris, and gathers a selection of her work from the past ten years.

Ten Fundamental Questions of CuratingTen Fundamental Questions of Curating

Published by Mousse Publishing.
Edited by Jens Hoffmann. Foreword by Milovan Farronato. Text by Peter Eleey, Elena Filipovic, Juan A. Gaitán, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Maria Lind, Chus Martínez, Jessica Morgan, Adriano Pedrosa, Joăo Ribas, Dieter Roelstraete.

It has become almost obligatory to introduce a book on curating by noting the plethora of recent publications on the subject. How, in just a few short years, did we reach this point of saturation? What questions, exactly, do all these books address? Many attempt to offer an overview of the curatorial field as it exists today, or attempt to map its historical trajectory. Others propose a series of case studies under a common curatorial theme. All are hoping to contribute to this relatively new discipline and its accompanying canon. Edited by Jens Hoffmann, Ten Fundamental Questions of Curating offers a real critique of existing publications and modes of thinking by explicitly asking the questions that others have missed, ignored or deemed already answered: What is a curator? What is the public? What is art? What about collecting? What is an exhibition? Why mediate art? What to do with the contemporary? What about responsibility? What is the process? How about pleasure? Here, Peter Eleey, Elena Filipovic, Juan A. Gaitán, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Maria Lind, Chus Martínez, Jessica Morgan, Adriano Pedrosa, Joăo Ribas and Dieter Roelstraete each propose and then address one question. Ten Fundamental Questions of Curating takes a back-to-basics approach--a return to a kind of zero-degree state--at a time when a recalibration of what a curator is and does seems both necessary and urgent.

Show Time: The 50 Most Influential Exhibitions of Contemporary ArtShow Time: The 50 Most Influential Exhibitions of Contemporary Art

Published by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc..
Edited and with text by Jens Hoffmann. Conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Massimiliano Gioni, Maria Lind, Jessica Morgan, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Adriano Pedrosa, Mary Jane Jacob.

This monumental new book explores the recent history of exhibition-making, looking at the radical shifts that have taken place in the practice of curating contemporary art over the last 20 years. Tracing a history of curating through its most innovative shows, renowned curator Jens Hoffmann selects the 50 key exhibitions that have most significantly shaped the practice of both artists and curators. Chosen from the plethora of exhibitions, biennials and art events that have sprung up across the world since the 1990s, each exhibition reviewed here has triggered profound changes in curatorial practice, and reanimated the potential of contemporary art. The book includes an international roster of curators, and exhibition venues that span the globe, from the USA, Mexico, Brazil and South Africa to France, Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey and Spain. It is comprised of nine themed sections, including: "New Lands" (on shows such as Magiciens de la Terre, The Short Century and After the Wall); "Biennial Years" (which documents influential biennials such as the Documentas [10, 11, 13] and the Berlin and Săo Paulo Biennials); "New Forms" (including experiments in exhibition-making such as Do It and NowHere); "Others Everywhere" (on ‘identity politics’ shows such as In a Different Light, Phantom Sightings and the 1993 Whitney Biennial); "Tomorrow’s Talents Today" (on influential group exhibitions of emerging artists such as Helter Skelter and Sensation); and "History" (on historical surveys such as Inside the Visible, Global Conceptualism and WACK!). A bold proposition for the future of exhibition culture as well as a means of making the recent past accessible, Show Time is essential reading for any student of curating or museum studies, for professional curators and for all those interested in one of today’s most dynamic forms of cultural production.
Jens Hoffmann is an exhibition maker and writer based in New York. He is Deputy Director and Head of Exhibitions and Public Programs at The Jewish Museum, New York. He has curated and co-curated a number of large-scale exhibitions, including the 2nd San Juan Triennial (2009), the 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011) and the 9th Shanghai Biennial (2012).

Americana: 50 States, 50 Months, 50 ExhibitionsAmericana: 50 States, 50 Months, 50 Exhibitions

Published by Wattis.
Edited and with introduction by Jens Hoffmann.

Americana: 50 States, 50 Months, 50 Exhibitions was a long-term presentation consisting of 50 displays, each approximately one month long, exhibited between January 2011–May 2012 and coorganized by Wattis Institute director Jens Hoffmann and CCA’s Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice. The title is a reference to an exhibition of the same name that was curated by the artist collective Group Material at the 1985 Whitney Biennial. Each month’s display examined an American state, in alphabetical order by state name. Through artworks, historical artifacts, curiosities and other elements, Americana focuses on overlooked and little-known aspects of each state. Americana examines the states as they are today, looking at how America’s social and political imperatives condition the production, presentation and interpretation of art and exhibition making. The brisk pace of the 50 displays reflects the varied and constantly changing fabric of this relatively young country and its multilayered, shifting national identity.

When Attitudes Became Form Become AttitudesWhen Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes

Published by Wattis.
Edited and with introduction by Jens Hoffmann. Text by Constance Lewallen, Julian Myers, Christian Rattemeyer. Interview by Harald Szeemann, Jens Hoffmann.

Harald Szeemann’s 1969 legendary exhibition Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form was one of the first shows to bring together new tendencies in 1960s art, such as postminimalism, Arte Povera, Land art and Conceptual art. While the exhibition has been widely discussed and researched, an investigation into its impact has never before been realized in an exhibition. This volume explores the history and myths around When Attitudes Become Form, gathering a group of artists that explore the legacy of Conceptual art. The catalogue follows the office-binder format of the 1969 publication, with newly commissioned essays, a previously unpublished interview with Szeemann by Jens Hoffman and essays and images from over 80 artists in the exhibition, including Allora and Calzadilla, Claire Fontaine, Elmgreen and Dragset, Lara Favaretto, Luisa Lambri and Tino Sehgal.

Antidote offers an inventory of the collection of Guillaume Houzé and Ginette Moulin--which includes works by Cyprien Gaillard, David Noonan, Wade Guyton and Ugo Rondinone--but this volume in no way resembles a conventional collection catalogue. Instead, the collection is presented as a comic by Jean-Marc Ballée.

Painting Between the LinesPainting Between the Lines

Published by California College of the Arts.
Text by Jens Hoffmann.

Writing and painting have been intertwined throughout history, but literature has of late become a diminished subject in the medium of painting, which has looked more to history, society and politics for inspiration. With Painting Between the Lines, the CCA Wattis reinvigorates the relationship between these two fields by commissioning 14 contemporary artists to create works based on descriptions of paintings in historical and contemporary novels. Here, art that until now has only existed in the mind’s eye can now be seen, as interpreted by the likes of Fred Tomaselli (on Samuel Beckett’s Watt) and Marcel Dzama (on Haruki Murakami’s Kafka on the Shore). Additional materials include images of first edition book covers and installation images from the accompanying exhibition. Enclosed in a slipcase, the catalogue is itself a take on the library practice of rebinding classic books in hardcover.

Text by Jens Hoffmann, Blake Stimson.

As the United States slowly emerges from its most significant economic downturn since the Great Depression, the CCA Wattis Institute reexamines the well-known photography program of the Farm Security Administration (1935-44). In More American Photographs, 12 contemporary photographers were commissioned to travel the United States, documenting its land and people. These new works are presented alongside historical images by original FSA photographers such as Dorothea Lange in a catalogue whose design was inspired by Walker Evans’ seminal book American Photographs. Participating photographers include Walead Beshty, Esther Bubley, Larry Clark, Roe Ethridge, Walker Evans, Katy Grannan, William E. Jones, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Sharon Lockhart, Catherine Opie, Gordon Parks, Martha Rosler, Collier Schorr, Ben Shahn, Stephen Shore, Alec Soth, Hank Willis Thomas and Marion Post Wolcott.

People's Biennial 2010People's Biennial 2010

A Guide to America's Most Amazing Artists

Published by Independent Curators International.
Foreword by Kate Fowle, Renaud Proch. Text by Jens Hoffmann, Harrell Fletcher.

People's Biennial is a celebration of the unknown, the peculiar and the disregarded. It was conceived through the curators' desire to explore the overlooked and the marginalized, and to present artistic positions usually dismissed by the mainstream art world. For the exhibition, five American art institutions present works by artists in each of the institutions' local communities, selected by the exhibition co-curators, Harrell Fletcher and Jens Hoffmann. This catalogue chronicles Fletcher and Hoffmann's research and visits to each of the five cities: Portland, Oregon; Scottsdale, Arizona; Rapid City, South Dakota; Winston-Salem, North Carolina; and Haverford, Pennsylvania.

Huckleberry FinnHuckleberry Finn

Published by CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts.
Edited by Jens Hoffmann. Text by Jens Hoffmann, Maurice Berger, Mirjana Blankenship, Elyse Mallouk.

Marking the 125th anniversary of the publication of Twain’s classic novel, Huckleberry Finn is the final volume in CCA Wattis’ trilogy of exhibitions that take canonical American novels as departure points for examinations by artists of key themes in American culture. Huckleberry Finn is easily among the most important and best-loved works of American literature, but it still tops the banned book list in America, revealing that its tackling of intolerance, racism and struggles for equality remain all too relevant to our society. Here, Twain’s exploration of racial tension is extended in works by Edgar Arceneaux, Ruth-Marion Baruch, Romare Bearden, Claude Clark, Jamal Cyrus, Emory Douglas, Ellen Gallagher, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Rodney Graham, David Hammons, Dorothea Lange, Henry Lewis, Glenn Ligon, Thomas Nast, Kirsten Pieroth, Horace Pippin, Betye Saar, Yinka Shonibare, Alec Soth, William Desmond Taylor, Hank Willis Thomas, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol and others.

Fernando OrtegaFernando Ortega

Published by Turner.
Text by Jens Hoffmann, Michel Blancsubé.

In his multidisciplinary works, Mexican artist Fernando Ortega plays with everyday perception--the negligible sights and sounds around us. In "Piano Recital" (2008), for instance, Ortega asked a motorcycle mechanic to tune a piano, on which pieces by Chopin were then played. Featured here are recent works and essays by curators Jens Hoffmann and Michel Blancsubé.

Published by CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts.
Text by Jens Hoffmann, Rebecca Loncraine.

L. Frank Baum's classic children's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz--which captured an America rapidly changing in response to industrial, political and technological advances--is the impetus for this exquisitely designed catalogue for an exhibition by curator and CCA Wattis Director Jens Hoffmann. An eclectic group of international artists including Robert Bechtle, Jennifer Bornstein, Ulla von Brandenburg, Bruce Conner, Walker Evans, Simryn Gill, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Loris Gréaud, Joseph Grigely, Carsten Höller, Evan Holloway, Glenn Ligon, Steve McQueen, Gareth Moore, Rivane Neuenschwander, Raymond Pettibon, Clare Rojas, Harry Smith, Donald Urquhart, Andy Warhol and Cerith Wyn Evans either created new work or are represented by existing pieces that resonate with the way we experience the world and the idea of America itself. The generously illustrated volume includes a text on each artist, as well as critical essays by Hoffmann and Baum biographer Rebecca Loncraine.

TheanyspacewhateverTheanyspacewhatever

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essays by Michael Archer, Jan Avgikos, Daniel Birnbaum, Ina Blom, Stefano Boeri, Francesco Bonami, Nicolas Bourriaud, Xavier Douroux, Patricia Falguieres, Heike Föll, Hal Foster, Massimiliano Gioni, Michael Govan, Dorothea von Hantelmann, Jens Hoffman, Chrissie Iles, Branden Joseph, Emily King, Christy Lange, Maria Lind, Tom Morton, Molly Nesbit, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Beatrix Ruf, Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen, Barbara Steiner, Rachael Thomas, Eric Troncy, Giorgio Verzotti, Thomas Wulffen, Olivier Zahm

During the 1990s a number of artists claimed the exhibition as their medium. Working independently or in various collaborative constellations, they eschewed the individual object in favor of the exhibition environment as a dynamic arena, ever expanding its physical and temporal parameters. For these artists an exhibition can comprise a film, a novel, a shared meal, a social space, a performance or a journey. Their work engages directly with the vicissitudes of everyday life, offering subtle moments of transformation. This catalogue, which accompanies a major exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, is the first in the U.S. to examine the dynamic interchange among a core group of these artists--Angela Bulloch, Maurizio Cattelan, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Pierre Huyghe, Jorge Pardo, Philippe Parreno and Rirkrit Tiravanija--a many-sided conversation that helped shape the cultural landscape of the 1990s and beyond.

Tim Lee: Capp Street ProjectTim Lee: Capp Street Project

Steve Martin Let's Get Small 1977- Neil Young Rust Never Sleeps 1979

Published by CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts.
Text by Claire Fitzsimmons, Jens Hoffmann.

San Francisco's Capp Street Project was founded in 1983 as the first visual arts residency in the United States dedicated to the creation and presentation of new art installations. For his 2007 residency, Vancouver-based artist Tim Lee created an exhibition influenced by Steve Martin's first comedy album, Let's Get Small (1977), and Neil Young's seminal electric/acoustic album, Rust Never Sleeps (1979). Answering Martin's now-famous quip from that album, "You just can't play a depressing song on the banjo," Lee mastered Neil Young's maudlin "My My, Hey Hey" on banjo and then installed a recording of it in the Wattis Institute elevator. This engaging publication includes texts by Wattis Institute Director Jens Hoffmann and Deputy Director Claire Fitzsimmons

Mario Ybarra Jr.: Capp Street ProjectMario Ybarra Jr.: Capp Street Project

Published by CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Art.
Edited and with text by Jens Hoffman, Claire Fitzsimmon, Mario Ybarra Jr.

When referred to as a Chicano artist in the Los Angeles Times, Mario Ybarra Jr. once protested, "I make contemporary art that is filtered through a Mexican-American experience in Los Angeles." Filled with graffiti, restaurant signage and stills from music videos, with sweeping graphic lines and lyric abstractions, his outrageous, multicolored murals speak about his particular experience as an artist and a Mexican-American, both politically and aesthetically. Compactly designed by Jon Suede/Stripe, this slim, dynamic catalogue with paper changes features an essay on the artist's entire oeuvre by Jens Hoffmann, along with an engaging text by Claire Fitzsimmons. Produced to accompany Ybarra's installation at San Francisco's Capp Street Project, this volume is the artist's first monograph, as well as a thorough document of the mural he produced over the course of his residency there.

MarepeMarepe

Published by Holzwarth Publications.
Text by Jens Hoffmann, Adriano Pedrosa.

This is the first comprehensive monograph on the young Brazilian artist Marepe, who lives and works in Santo Antônio de Jesus in Bahia Province in northwestern Brazil. The cosmos of this location--Marepe's birthplace--provides the stimuli for his art. His works, exhibited worldwide at Biennale festivals and museums such as London's Tate Modern or Paris' Centre Pompidou, evolve from the region's history, the daily lives of its people and the creativity that helps them to survive. As Jens Hoffmann writes in his essay: "Marepe's world is fairly unique and his works of art are not just objects representing an idea or concept, they are witnesses of his life and the condensation of his experiences and his dreams. His interpretation of his surroundings is rendered into multifaceted, poetic and frequently beautiful works of art, which speak profoundly about some of the most relevant and even existential questions of our lives." Adriano Pedrosa analyzes the transformative impact of placing rows of water filters or replica market stalls in an art context. Statements, notes and poetry from the artist himself shed further light on the background of his pieces.

ShanghARTShanghART

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Sine Bepler, Uta Grosenick. Text by Sine Bepler, Jens Hoffmann, Jonathan Napack, Philip Tinari.

Since its establishment in 1996, ShanghART gallery has fostered and embraced radicalism and diversity in Shanghai art. Located initially in a downtown hotel and thereafter in an old workshop in Fuxing Park, the gallery quickly became an international reference point for contemporary Chinese art. Today it is regarded as one of the country's most acclaimed and innovative cultural spaces, with notes of appreciation from some of the most prominent figures of the western art world, including Hans Ulrich Obrist and Arthur Danto. This publication is structured as a virtual exhibition, documenting key works by represented artists including Wang Guangyi, Xu Zhen, Yang Fudong and 28 others, as well as the gallery's own development. Essays relate the history of the emergent Chinese art scene and detail the radical sociopolitical and cultural changes of the past decade.

Alien NationAlien Nation

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Gilane Tawadros, John Gill, Jens Hoffmann. Text by David Alan Mellor, Claire Fitzsimmons.

Alien Nation explores the ways the metaphor of the alien (little green man) has been used to process the reality of the alien (illegal or otherwise). If the cinema of the 1950s and 60s sublimated the fear of atomic catastrophe or communist attack into interplanetary drama, the more recent work collected here uses elements of that retro sci-fi world as powerful metaphors for our deep-seated fears of the Other, the foreigner--the increasingly frequently decried "invasion" of immigrants, or just the presence of people of different skin colors and beliefs. Among the 12 international contemporary artists showcased are Laylah Ali, Kori Newkirk and Yinka Shonibare. They and their compatriots explore themes of otherness and difference in film, sculpture, painting, photography and installation. Their interplanetary visitors--which might be built from Christmas ornaments, like Marepe's untitled creature, or sewn from African cloth, like Shonibare's "Dysfunctional Family"--are illustrated alongside film stills and posters from the 1950s and 60s, a glossary of alien names from those films, several thoughtful essays and interviews with the participating artists. A timely, ambitious and thought-provoking exploration of the complex relationship between fiction, race and contemporary art.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by John C. Welchman. Essays by Alexander Alberro, Jens Hoffmann, Andrea Fraser, Renee Green, Isabelle Graw and Lauri Firstenberg, et. al.

This contemporary reassessment of the Institutional Critique movement, launched in the late 1960s by artists including Michael Asher and Hans Haacke, grew out of a symposium held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It looks at Institutional Critique's central aim, the exposure and ironization of the structures and logic of museums and art galleries, and recent developments that engage with and echo it. IC has been raised again by Andrea Fraser, Renee Green and Fred Wilson, among others, and has been vigorously reoriented in recent years to address issues such as globalization. Contributors include Alexander Alberro, Mike Kelley, Hans Haacke, Lauri Firstenberg, Andrea Fraser, Renee Green and others.

Sue De BeerSue De Beer

Published by Downtown Arts Projects.
Essay by Shamim Momin. Texts by Trinie Dalton, Jens Hoffmann, Casey McKinney and Brandon Stosuy. Introduction and Interview by Simon Watson.

Artist Sue de Beer has cited Proust's influence on her oeuvre, particularly the great author's work The Captive, which in achingly beautiful prose recounts a young man's quest to comprehend the object of his amorous obsession. This first installment in the Emerging Artists Book Series, by New York's Downtown Arts Projects, captures the heart of de Beer's work, in which photographs, video stills and installation shots convey expressions of time and memory. Extensive full-color as well as black-and-white illustrations are paired with thematic essays by contemporary writers and curators, in addition to early critical writings. This volume is an exciting debut in a series that promises to champion the finest emerging visual artists appearing in the United States today.

The textured, crazy, and highly energetic world of John Bock comes alive in Koppel, which documents 18 of the young artist's surrealist performances from the past two years (10 of them from Documenta 11). Video stills, artist texts, photos, and sketches reveal the humor and found-object curiosity that drives his zany work.

The Next Documenta Should Be Curated By An ArtistThe Next Documenta Should Be Curated By An Artist

Published by e-flux/Revolver.
Edited by Jens Hoffman.

Instigated by a conversation between Jens Hoffman and artist Carsten Höller after the opening of Documenta 11, this project provocatively questions the ascent of the curator, the value of the artist as curator, the future of international exhibitions and many less easily summarized tangents. Exhibited virtually on the e-flux website, The Next Documenta Should be Curated by an Artist is really much more of a question than a statement, a question to which a dozen or so artists responded in a varied manner, including Marina Abramovic, Pawel Althamer, AA Bronson, Daniel Buren, Liam Gillick, Joseph Grigely, Alfredo Jaar, Ken Lum, John Miller and Martha Rosler. Some offered considered expository positions and formal exhibition proposals, others contributed brief wit and poetic statements. The Next Documenta Should be Curated by an Artist offers an experimental means of questioning a relevant topic through one of the most important exhibitions on the international scene.

Artwork by Mark Bain, Runa Islam, Carlos Amorales, Joan Jonas, Fiona Tan. Edited by Jens Hoffman. Contributions by Jane Farver.

Paintings on Masonite

Published by Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
Artwork by Per Kirkeby. Edited by Michael Holm. Text by Mikkel Bogh, Lars Morell, Jacob Wamberg, Jens Hoffmann, Poul Erik Tojner.

Testimony to an artist both searching for a language adequate to his experiences and hunting for experiences that can fill out the available sets and scenery, Per Kirkeby's masonite paintings from the 1960s and early 1970s are rich and many, a strange, flat mix of the provincial and the cosmopolitan--from Brigitte Bardot to the Royal Deer Park in Copenhagen, from minimalistically expressionless stripes to expressive gestures, from grottos and caves full of longing to closed, inapproachable cabins from the western mythology of Hollywood. It is all there, in its own oddly subdued, spatially illusionistic way.
