Published by Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris/Salzburg.
Edited by Arne Ehmann. Text by Thomas Krens.

Tracing one of the last century's abiding motifs, this book looks at the many interpretations by artists of the idea of the void. Starting with Malevich, it follows the theme through abstraction of Pollock, Martin and Ryman to the Conceptualism of Andre, LeWitt and Flavin to contemporary artists such as Rachel Whiteread, Roni Horn and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

Russia!: The Majesty Of The TsarsRussia!: The Majesty Of The Tsars

Treasures from the Kremlin Museum

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essay by Irina Bogrovnitskaya.

The Majesty of the Tsars: Treasures from the Kremlin is the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum's companion exhibition to the major show Russia! at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. This dazzling exhibition focuses on Russia in the 16th and 17th centuries, when the Russian Tsars still resided in Moscow and before the founding of St. Petersburg in the 18th century. It is divided into four sections: "The Royal Family," "The Royal Hunt and Warfare," "The Royal Feast," and "Power and Faith." The show will present rare and beautiful jewelry worn by Tsars, Tsarina's and Patriarchs, elaborate adornments for horses, a small but impressive selection of arms and armor, and iconostasis from the Annunciation Cathedral, the remarkable and highest quality silver serving pieces given to the Tsars by foreign dignitaries, Russian golden tableware and a small selection of portraits. Taken together, these fine and masterful objects will bring the spectacular world of imperial Russia to life.The Majesty of the Tsars includes a chronology of the imperial lineage during this period; an essay by Kremlin Curator Irina Bogronovnitskaya; individual entries by other Kremlin curators on the works; and an introduction to of each theme.

Speaking With Hands

Photographs from the Buhl Collection

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essays by Jennifer Blessing, Kirsten Hoving and Ralph Rugoff. Foreword by Henry Buhl and Thomas Krens.

In October 1993, Henry M. Buhl purchased a photograph by Alfred Stieglitz of Georgia O'Keeffe's hands. This photograph would come to be the cornerstone of a private collection that now includes over one thousand images by the medium's foremost practitioners as well as little-known and emerging artists. Focusing on the theme of the hand, Buhl has gathered images spanning the history of photography, from a photogenic drawing negative made in 1840 by William Henry Fox Talbot to serial Polaroids made in 2002 by Cornelia Parker. The collection also encompasses a comprehensive range of photographic practices, including scientific, journalistic, and fine-art photography, with a strong component of contemporary art. Published on the occasion of a major exhibition drawn from The Buhl Collection, this book demonstrates the prevalence of the hand as a photographic theme, a result, in part, of photography's easy ability to capture fragments and detail, as well as ephemeral movement. The selected works depict the hand literally, in the context of portraiture, for example, as well as figuratively, in terms of the poetic emphasis given to hand gestures in documentary images. In artistic images created from the 1920s to the present, the hand is abstracted and subsequently treated as a conceptual device.

Jennifer Blessing explores the nature of collecting photographs and why hands are in many ways a uniquely photographic theme. Kirsten A. Hoving emphasizes the prevalence of hands in Surrealist photographs and prose. Ralph Rugoff discusses the uncanny aspects of hands in contemporary art that uses photography. The catalogue entries, written by Matthew S. Witkovsky with Melanie Marižo and Nat Trotman, cover 150 artists and 168 works, forming a useful resource for the study of the history of photography.

Now in Paperback! This lavishly illustrated book explores a century of modern art through the exceptional holdings of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice. Engaging, accessible essays introduce a range of art-historical issues, from the depiction of women in Impressionist works to the Guggenheim's influential role in presenting new artistic currents, such as Minimalist, Conceptual and site-specific art. Also recounted are the fascinating stories of Solomon R. Guggenheim, who championed abstract art in the United States, and his flamboyant niece Peggy Guggenheim, an equally important art patron, as well as the saga of the design process and building of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpieces.

Lawrence Weiner: Nach Alles/After AllLawrence Weiner: Nach Alles/After All

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Lawrence Weiner. Edited by Lisa Dennison, Nancy Spector. Contributions by Rolf Breuer. Text by Thomas Krens.

Conceptual Art pioneer Lawrence Weiner has vastly extended and rewritten the notion of sculpture--language is his medium, and his sculpture is text. In Weiner's mind, it is of no importance whether or not a work is ''realized''--it is entirely up to the ''reader'' of a work of art whether and how she will implement the work in her own head. Beyond this, a work can be ''realized'' in many forms--since 1968, Weiner has been publishing his language-oriented works in book form. The artist's book After All was commissioned by the Guggenheim Berlin and features drawings, texts, and plans for an installation consisting mainly of dual language inscriptions on exhibition walls. The book is dedicated to the exploration of the microcosmic and macrocosmic levels of the world we inhabit, and draws its inspiration from the naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and his endeavor to describe and categorize the whole world. A unique and impressive artist's book from one of our great artistic visionaries, After All takes a deep look at the human urge to classify and the modern will-to-truth.
