Herbert HamakHerbert Hamak

Published by Kerber.
Edited by Martin Hentschel. Text by Luca Massimo Barbero, Ulrich Loock.

Herbert Hamak (born 1952) has evolved a somewhat alchemical approach to painting: he mixes pigments with a binding agent of artificial resin and wax. Before the substance solidifies, he emerges his stretched canvas into a mold, while the image remains invisible. This publication presents Hamak's latest series developed specifically for Mies van der Rohe's Museum Haus Lange.

Raoul De Keyser: WatercoloursRaoul De Keyser: Watercolours

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Ulrich Loock. Introduction by João Fernandes.

Raoul De Keyser's watercolors are a lesser known aspect of his output. Sharing the formal concerns of his paintings, and likewise triggered by specific observations and circumstances, they also offer a readier forum for experimentation than the paintings. This publication presents 59 of De Keyser's watercolors, made between 2000 and 2008.

Isa Genzken: Open SesameIsa Genzken: Open Sesame

Published by Walther König.
Edited by Iwona Blazwick. Foreword by Kasper Koenig. Text by Yves-Alain Bois, Ulrich Loock.

Retrospektive covers more than three decades of Berlin-based Isa Genzken's career, with over 150 images, some of which are published here for the first time. Although she works in a variety of media, Genzken is best known for her architectural sculptures made from colorful materials, including mirrored sheets, fluorescent plastic and glass. A catalogue for Open, Sesame!, Genzken's retrospective exhibition at Cologne's Museum Ludwig and London's Whitechapel Gallery, this volume offers the most definitive look yet at an influential and notoriously reclusive artist. Featured are essays by renowned critic Yves-Alain Bois, curators Ulrich Loocks, Donna De Salvo and Ian White, an interview with Museum Ludwig Director Kasper König and contributions from artists Dan Graham, Wolfgang Tillmans and Lawrence Weiner.

Eberhard Havekost 1996-2006Eberhard Havekost 1996-2006

Paintings from the Rubell Family Collection

Published by Rubell Family Collection.
Text by Mark Coetzee, Meghan Dailey, Ulrich Loock.

The work of German artist Eberhard Havekost critiques the proverbial dialogue between painting and photography by establishing a visual language that hovers in the grey space between the two. What is at once apparent in the juxtaposition of these two seemingly disparate media in Havekost's hands is their mutual dependence--despite their differences. Working from personal photographs and found images, Havekost presents iconography that is familiar to all urban and suburban dwellers: bland Modernist structures, featureless landscapes and images of actual and impending violence. The significance of his work lies not in its subject matter, however, but in its execution. His creations are original works, made by hand, but by digital processes too. Published on the occasion of Havekost's first museum showing in the United States.

Franz Gertsch: Retrospective

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Matthias Frehner, Joachim Jäger, Ulrich Loock, Peter Schneemann, Reinhard Spieler and Samuel Vitali.

Retrospective, the most comprehensive monograph to date on the work of Franz Gertsch, celebrates the painter's 75th birthday. Since Harald Szeemann's legendary Documenta 5 in 1972, Gertsch has been one of the most significant photorealist or hyperrealist painters in the world. As a participant in three Venice Biennales, most recently in 2003, and the subject of solo shows at institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Gertsch has received some of the highest honors the art world has to offer. In 2002 the Museum Franz Gertsch opened in Burgdorf, near Bern, Switzerland: it is dedicated to his work--a rare honor for any living artist--and features a wide variety of it. Retrospective collects Gertsch's most important large-format paintings and monumental woodcuts, along with a broad selection of gouaches and watercolors from the late 1960s to the present, and includes a catalogue raisonnª of the paintings.

Thomas Schütte: Collector's Choice Vol. 2

Published by Dumont Buchverlag.
Essay by Ulrich Loock. Foreword by Friedrich Christian Flick.

Thomas Schtte has frequently cast himself into the role of a maverick--remained remote from the work of his artistic mentor, distanced himself from the statements of each ephemeral Zeitgeist and increasingly contradicted his own positions--and in so doing has become one of the most influential artists of his generation. Shifting from text to image to object to book, his work juxtaposes biographical moments with contemporary events, oscillates between the aspiration to shape the public reception of architecture and monumental sculpture and the conjunctive of model-maker, and projects avant-garde ideas onto traditional forms of art. With meticulous rigor, Ulrich Loock has observed the evolution of Schtte's output over the past 25 years. Underpinning his lucid overview is a series of intensive discussions between the author and artist on the genesis and history of particular works. This well-designed book is the most comprehensive monograph of the artist's work to date, and provides profound insight into Schtte's work through detailed discussions of the pieces.

Wilhelm Sasnal: Night Day NightWilhelm Sasnal: Night Day Night

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Ulrich Loock, Carina Plath and Beatrix Ruf.

The art of young polish painter Wilhelm Sasnal offers an entirely new and unfamiliar perspective on the meaning of images of day-to-day reality. In them, Sasnal's own existential fears and concerns about Polish society mix with sources such as Rodchenko, Art Spiegelmann's comic MAUs, and concert photographs of Sonic Youth.

Gregor SchneiderGregor Schneider

Published by Charta.
Essays by Ulrich Loock and Paul Schimmel. Interviews by Hannelore Reuen and Ulrich Loock.

“Making is a higher form of thinking,” claims Gregor Schneider, who began to make art as an adolescent. So urgent was his desire to be an artist that, in order to pay for the materials he needed to make his sculptures, he even worked as a gravedigger. Introverted, self-effacing and a close observer of human behavior--with a particular passion for the lowliest of social categories--Schneider has developed an all-absorbing identification with his work, living together with it night and day in an apartment he soundproofed from the rest of the world. Schneider has tried his hand at film, painting and sculpture, but most remarkable is the installation he created between 1985 and 1994, in his home. There he built rooms within rooms, walls in front of walls, doors that led nowhere and windows that opened onto dead spaces. When asked about his motivations, he would defiantly proclaim, “I can't do anything else.” This monograph surveys his work.

Herbert BrandlHerbert Brandl

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Herbert Brandl, Peter Weibel. Edited by Gunther Holler-Schuster, Hans Ulrich Obrist. Text by Denys Zacharopoulos, Ulrich Loock.

One of the most important, though largely unknown, exponents of the new painting, Herbert Brandl helped take art in a new direction in the 1980s, not least in response to a concept-based medium that had become academic. This volume documents Brandl's artistic development to date, revealing the strong analytic components of his work, and his ability to "depict depicting."

Raoul De Keyser: 1980-1999

Published by Ludion.
Edited by Steven Jacobs. Essays by Bart Cassiman, Dirk De Vos, Roland Jooris, Ulrich Loock, Hans Rudolf Reust, Gregory Salzman, Roberta Smith, Wim Van Mulders.

Raoul De Keyser's mainly abstract art is remarkable for its dimensional realism--that is, its connection of the subjective and objective dimensions of experience. De Keyser personalizes abstraction, he gives it a human face; many of his pictures include motifs drawn from his immediate surroundings or his own personal experience. Instead of searching for an overarching formal principle--as did the pioneers of abstraction from Kandinsky's time through the 1960s--De Keyser attunes his art to the significance of improvisation and chance in all life, and contemporary life in particular. Thus we find in the art of Raoul De Keyser much of the contingency, inconsistency, textual precariousness, modal variety, particularity, unpredictability, disorder and flux that we find in our daily lives. This catalogue, published on the occasion of a touring exhibition of De Keyser's work, documents in sumptuous reproductions the artist's oeuvre over the past twenty years.
