Candida Höfer: Haus LudwigCandida Höfer: Haus Ludwig

Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Edited by Barbara Engelbach. Preface by Kaspar König, Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen. Text by Eduard Beaucamp, Barbara Engelbach.

In Haus Ludwig, Candida Höfer (born 1944), internationally renowned for her photographs of museums and libraries, documents the private collection and interiors of the house of Irene and Peter Ludwig in Aachen, Germany. The collection itself contains a wealth of works by European modernist greats such as August Macke, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Lyonel Feininger and Alexej von Jawlensky, as well as by postwar American Pop-era artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and Jackson Pollock. On the occasion of the transfer of nine works from Aachen to the Museum Ludwig, Höfer was invited to portray the unique intertwining of art and architecture at the house, as well as its many special architectural features-old doors, glass panels, grates and ceramic tiles.

Yvonne Rainer: Space, Body, LanguageYvonne Rainer: Space, Body, Language

Published by Kunsthaus Bregenz/Museum Ludwig, Cologne.
Edited by Yilmaz Dziewior, Barbara Engelbach. Foreword by Yilmaz Dziewior, Barbara Engelbach, Kaspar König. Text by Gabriele Brandstetter, Douglas Crimp, Yilmaz Dziewior, Barbara Engelbach, Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Volker Pantenburg, Catherine Wood.

Despite her years of work and influence as one of the world’s leading choreographers, dancers and filmmakers, Yvonne Rainer (born 1934) has until now not received the retrospective exhibition in Europe that her career deserves. Yvonne Rainer: Space, Body, Language is published for exhibitions at the Kunsthaus Bregenz and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, and covers the full spectrum of her work, starting from her foundational New York dance works such as The Mind Is a Muscle (1968), which created a new physical language out of everyday gestures and humdrum objects such as mattresses, barbells and bubblewrap. Moving to her political and feminist films between 1976 and 1996, which took the filmic montage features of her dance (and her incorporation of filmed actions of hands and volleyballs in her performances) to their next level, Space, Body, Language brings us up to the present with Rainer’s return to choreography in 2000 and such recent compositions as Assisted Living: Good Sports 2 (2011) and Spiraling Down (2008). This catalogue presents previously unseen documentation of stage works, notebooks, an astonishing number of dance scores, scripts, movie and exhibition posters and a carefully compiled appendix, as well as essays by Douglas Crimp, Gabriele Brandstetter, Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Volker Pantenburg, Catherine Wood and editors Yilmaz Dziewior and Barbara Engelbach.

Vija CelminsVija Celmins

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Julia Friedrich, Kasper König. Texts by Hubertus Butin, Julia Friedrich.

The many admirers and devotees of Vija Celmins (born 1938) at last possess a serious overview of the Latvian-born, New York-based artist's work in this volume. For more than a half-century, Celmins has quietly mined a narrow but infinitely rich range of theme and palette, extrapolating whole worlds of photorealist detail from four seemingly simple motifs: the surface of the sea, the night sky, the desert and the spider web. In oil paintings, prints and charcoal or graphite pencil drawings that revisit these motifs over and over, as if researching them to comprehend their infinities of detail, Celmins confines herself to the colors black, white and gray, preserving a spacious sobriety and calm exactitude for her potentially romantic subjects. This essential volume reproduces more than 60 variations of Celmins' precisely depicted seas, skies, deserts and webs, which in the artist's seemingly dispassionate renderings restore vastness and wonder to our sense of the cosmos.

Leni Hoffmann: RGBLeni Hoffmann: RGB

Published by DuMont Buchverlag.
Edited by Katia Baudin. Text by Kasper König.

German artist Leni Hoffmann (born 1962) revisits the potentials of modernist and avant-garde (particularly Russian Constructivist) painting, but using materials such as concrete, ceramic and plastic tarps. Returning to the aspirations of El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko, Hoffmann in turn questions the social neutrality of art, through colorful site-specific installations that extend painting into architectural space and everyday life.

Lucy McKenzie: Chêne De WeekendLucy McKenzie: Chêne De Weekend

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Lucy McKenzie, Barbara Engelbach. Afterword by Kasper König.

Born into the semiotic seductions of the 1980s, Scottish painter Lucy McKenzie reworks the iconography of that decade to foster associations between the most unlikely sources—East European propaganda murals, German abstract painting, Cold War imagery, industrial typefaces and 1980s synth-pop. To embellish this wide-ranging lexicon, she often collaborates with fashion designers, musicians and interior designers on works that have been exhibited as theatrical sets at museums in Edinburgh, San Francisco, New York and Cologne, winning her an international following. Ch'ne De Weekend introduces new paintings that reference nineteenth-century trompe l'oeil paintings used for interior design, part of McKenzie's participation in Atelier, an interior design collective. Alongside reproductions of works, it includes a fictional account of her study of trompe l'oeil and an homage to the fashion designer Beca Lipscombe, one of her collaborators in Atelier.

Jonas MekasJonas Mekas

Published by Walther König.
Edited by Kasper König, Hans Ulrich Obrist. Text by Barbara Engelbach, Julia Peyton-Jones.

The definitive book on filmmaker, writer, founder of Anthology Film Archive and all-round cinema avatar Jonas Mekas, this compendium of materials is essential for all fans of independent American cinema. Since the early 1950s, when he acquired his first Bolex camera (shortly after moving to New York from Lithuania), Mekas has practiced a kind of diaristic filmmaking, which developed into a distinct style in the 1960s, where his documentations of John Lennon, Allen Ginsberg and other member of the New York counterculture were blended with footage of the city's street life and everyday incidents. Since the 1990s, he has also produced so-called "frozen film stills" and installation video pieces. This book presents his newest work (such as the huge video piece "365 Day Project," for which he filmed a video every day for a year) alongside his texts--journals, poems, letters, essays and interviews--and a huge array of historical photographs, posters and other ephemera.

Looking for Mushrooms: Beat Poets, Hippies, Funk, Minimal ArtLooking for Mushrooms: Beat Poets, Hippies, Funk, Minimal Art

Published by Walther König.
Foreword by Kasper König. Text by Barbara Engelbach, Friederike Wappler, Hans Winkler.

The San Francisco Bay Area's legendary late-1960s counterculture--which included Allen Ginsberg, Bruce Nauman, Stan Brakhage, Yvonne Rainer and The Grateful Dead, as well as plentiful psychedelic drugs, free love, bell-bottoms, dashikis, daisies and radical leftist politics--ushered in wave after wave of experiments in dance, art, literature, music and film. As Jack Kerouac wrote in his 1957 masterpiece, On the Road, "The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." This engaging documentary volume, which accompanies a late 2008 exhibition at Germany's revered Museum Ludwig, Cologne, examines the cultural repercussions of the creative output during the pivotal years spanning from 1955 to 1968, examining the ways in which they are still reverberating today.

This collection examines the movement--which was declared degenerate during the Nazi period--with an essay by Lynette Roth and illustrations of more than 100 works, some never-before-published.

Skulptur Projekte Münster 07: Public SculptureSkulptur Projekte Münster 07: Public Sculpture

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Introduction by Kasper König, Brigitte Franzen.

Been to enough biennials? Skulptur Projekte Münster only happens every 10 years. This, its fourth iteration (following 1977, 1987 and 1997), invites artists from all over the world--many of whom are returning to the city and the event--to create new site-specific works. Thus Michael Asher brings back his trailer and parks in sites he first sussed out in 1977, continuing to explore the conflicts between rigid form and mobile space, and to document the dramatic transformation of the urban environment over four decades. Guy Ben-Ner equips bicycles with screens and places them around the city; by pedaling, participants control the speed and direction of a film of the artist doing the same. Guillaume Bijl mocks up an archaeological site 25 feet square and 18 feet deep, whose steep walls imitate layers of soil. Visitors climb a grassy hill to peer into the pit from a balustrade; in the pit, a 14-foot, shingle-roofed spire topped by a weathercock preens. This extensive book inspired by and documenting the festival opens on 35 sections between 4 and 16 pages long, each designed by the artist and illuminating his or her work in text and images. Its second half comes in the form of a glossary of more than 100 key concepts linked to the subject of art in public spaces; artists, art historians, philosophers, urbanists, architects, sociologists and other writers weighing in with definitions from their respective disciplinary perspectives. Participants include Francis Alÿs, Isa Genzken, Mike Kelley, Rosemarie Trockel, Bruce Nauman, Martha Rosler and Pae White.

The Eighth Square: Gender, Life and Desire in Art Since 1960The Eighth Square: Gender, Life and Desire in Art Since 1960

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Foreword by Frank Wagner, Kasper König. Text by Judith Butler, Douglas Crimp, Diedrich Diederichsen, Harald Fricke, Julia Friedrich, Hanne Loreck, Cristina Nord, Thomas Meinecke, Eva Meyer, Marlene Steeruwitz, Frank Wagner.

In chess, when a pawn reaches the eighth square on the far side of the board, the player can swap it for a piece from his opponent's set. So the pawn--a lowly foot soldier--can transform into a queen, the least powerful figure can transform into the epitome of power, and a man can become a woman--just like that. Issues of sexuality are playing out around us all the time, quaking and transmuting under the surface of every family exchange and embedded in all of our popular media images. This scholarly and yet still erotic compendium examines, through works by more than 70 artists, historical and social developments in human sexuality, taking on all facets of drag, gender, queerness and transsexuality. Artists include Diane Arbus, Francis Bacon, Matthew Barney, Louise Bourgeois, Nan Goldin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Robert Mapplethorpe, Tracey Moffatt, Bruce Nauman, Robert Rauschenberg and Cindy Sherman.

Flashback: Revisiting The Art of the EightiesFlashback: Revisiting The Art of the Eighties

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Philipp Kaiser. Conversations with Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Werner Büttner, Isabelle Graw, Kasper König and Thomas Ruff.

The last decade of the Cold War era left a legacy greater than legwarmers. Flashback takes a close and critical look at what many see as the decade of painting. Or the decade of the art-market boom. Or as Cindy Sherman once called it, the decade of media criticism. Is it any wonder that what emerges from the diversity of artistic approaches in Flashback is an extraordinarily heterogeneous time, and that in the end the book raises the question of whether it is even appropriate to view art of the 1980s as a category apart? Flashback includes works from some 30 artists, including Francesco Clemente, Robert Gober, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Sherrie Levine, Robert Longo, Richard Prince and Cindy Sherman.

Learning From That Person's Work

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Ulrich Wilmes. Foreword by Kasper Kànig.

Matt Mullican has been performing and creating under hypnosis since the 1970s, accessing his titular alter-ego, "that person," in a trance state and collaborating with him in work that has been called "controlled schizophrenia." Ergo, the 80 bed-sheet panels documented here are credited to "that person," an interesting artist in his own right.

George Brecht: EventsGeorge Brecht: Events

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essay by Alfred M. Fischer. Introduction by Kasper König.

George Brecht is, in Emmett Williams' words, "a practitioner of art for life's sake." This comprehensive publication on one of the most influential and entertaining artists of the Fluxus movement has at its core his works of the 1960s and 70s, particularly his "event objects"--everyday items enlivened by viewer interactions.

Claes Oldenburg: Raw NotesClaes Oldenburg: Raw Notes

Documents and Scripts of the Performances: Stars, Moveyhouse, Massage, The Typewriter, with Annotations by the Author

Published by The Press of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
Edited by Kasper Kànig.

A giant spoon with an enormous red cherry snaking out of the earth, a humongous badminton birdie, an oversized piece of cake, squishy scupltures--these are some of the works for which Claes Oldenburg, the artist who helped redefine sculpture in the 1960s, is best known. However, because they have been less documented, Oldenburg's happenings and performances have not been fully integrated into the critical discourse surrounding his work. Raw Notes, originally published in 1973, collects all of the material relating to his performances. According to his specifications, the text in the book is typed rather then set, and appears on only one side of the page. Examples of the original manuscript are reproduced in 63 script plates. These include stage plans, scores, sketches for programs, and posters. More than 200 annotations by the author expand the text. Raw Notes is indispensable as a document of the important aspects of Oldenburg's work.

Dispersion Room Reversal Room

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essays by Antje von Graevenitz, Kasper Kànig and Gerhard Kolberg.

Amsterdam-based sculptor Aernout Mik creates walk-in installations where video film combines with architectural elements to transform familiar spatial structures into unfamiliar and provoking ones. Two of his newest and most important works show absurd film scenes on a backscreen foregrounded by an actual identical scene: illusion vs. reality. Mik's grotesque, amusing, and at the same time serious films deal with the behavior of people in a group, highlighting their actions, interactions and reactions.

Dc: Heike BeyerDc: Heike Beyer

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essays by Kasper Kànig and Christine Litz.

Transience and the economic use of resources are central themes in German artist Heike Beyer's work. Materiality is also important--often festive, but never overtaxed. This exhibition catalogue records three scholars' reactions to Beyer's installation for the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, in which the artist covers the 36-foot-high room in colored crepe paper, which, over time, is bleached by daylight. The book also includes several images that may have served as references or inspirational materials for Beyer--drawings, paintings, photographs. They are at once scientific, romantic, beautiful and cryptic.

Georges Adéagbo is considered the most outstanding West African artist; at Documenta 11, he showed an installation on explorers and the history of exploration with around 1,500 objects juxtaposing clichés of Africa, and pieces found at the place of showing. This catalogue (with an insert designed by the artist) reads like a voyage of discovery.

Essay by Evelyne Weiss. Foreword by Kasper Kànig.

Peter Herrmann has remained the non-conformist artist he was when he left Dresden in 1984 to emigrate to West Germany. His seemingly naive figurative paintings and cityscapes capture the moods of human existence in a most subjective way. His horizontal series of paintings, about life, are the focus of this volume.

Andreas Siekmann: Limited Liability CompanyAndreas Siekmann: Limited Liability Company

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essays by Alice Creischer, Angelika Nollert, Foreword by Kasper Konig.

What object best serves as an icon of the social antagonisms of 20th and 21st century capitalism? Is it the worker's raised fist? Is it the truncheon? Not even close, Andreas Siekmann might say: it's a pair of blue jeans. Since 1996, the drawings made by this Berlin-based artist have focused on the consequences of the economic (im)balance of power. With a lively and open mind, Siekmann explores how urban space has been increasingly marked by political divisions, as minorities are driven out of central areas and public spaces are increasingly supervised. In order to visualize this development, Siekmann falls back on an often-overlooked but highly resonant symbol: the blue jean. Quoting pictograms of the 1920s, Siekmann shows the pants in their initial subversive role, then goes on to present them as a sector of the international economy, at the site of production, and as a trophy of pop culture. With an air of rebellion and optimism, Andreas Siekmann: Limited Liability Company explores both the reactionary and utopian currents flowing through contemporary global culture.
