Second Languages: Reading Piotr UklanskiSecond Languages: Reading Piotr Uklanski

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Donna Wingate, Marc Joseph Berg. Text by Geoffrey Batchen, Francesco Bonami, Gavin Brown, Paulo Herkenhoff, Chrissie Iles, Jenelle Porter, David Rimanelli, Christian Scheidemann, Adam Szymczyk, Catherine Wood.

Emerging in the mid-1990s, the Warsaw-born, New York-based artist Piotr Uklanski has created a provocative body of work that ranges across media, from installation, paper reliefs, tie-dye paintings, textile-based immersive sculptures and resin-based sculptures and paintings to photography, performance and a feature-length film, Summer Love. Second Languages is the first book to offer a comprehensive look at this iconoclastic artist. Taking the form of a reader, this richly illustrated collection of 11 essays--authored by internationally renowned art historians, curators and critics--analyzes Uklanski's protean output. While this book serves to critically situate Uklanski's work in art historical and theoretical contexts, it also provides some unconventional, humorous interpretations.

Andrea Zittel: Between Art and LifeAndrea Zittel: Between Art and Life

Published by Mousse Publishing.
Edited by Alberto Salvadori. Preface by Lapo Cianchi. Text by Francesco Bonami.

Published on the occasion of the artist’s first institutional solo show in Italy, Between Art and Life documents Andrea Zittel’s visionary experiments with the structures and design of everyday life. For the past two decades, Zittel has relentlessly advanced the role of art in streamlining our habitats and reclaiming civic agency through her handmade clothing, designed environments, recycling systems and breeding projects, Zittel wears her work, inhabits her work, eats her work and lives her work, and in the catalogue’s essay, Francesco Bonami describes Zittel as “one of the last utopian artists around. Utopia is a dying attitude. We are so wired in the now that it is almost impossible to free ourselves from our dystopian reality.” This book documents “A-Z West,” Zittel’s “Institute of Investigative Living,” launched by the artist in 1999 in the Joshua Tree Desert.

Josephine MeckseperJosephine Meckseper

Published by The Flag Art Foundation.
Text by John Cassidy, James Frey, Stephen Roach. Interview by Francesco Bonami.

Over the past ten years, the New York-based artist Josephine Meckseper has developed a practice that melds the aesthetic language of modernism with a profound critique of consumerism. Meckseper employs window displays, vitrines, installations, photographs, films and magazines to explore how consumer culture defines subjectivity. In this volume, published for her 2011 solo exhibition at the FLAG Art Foundation, New York, Meckseper presents a series of new works focusing on display modes of retail environments such as car dealerships, highlighting their aesthetic overlap with mid-century modernism. Chrome car rims sit atop mirrored pedestals; sleek corporate logos populate wall assemblages; and canvases are shrinkwrapped in plastic. Meckseper’<\#U02BC>s new vitrines, stocked with familiar and unfamiliar objects, function as time capsules of contemporary culture. The works in this catalogue possess a monumental quality, bearing as they do the insignia of American power and authority--flags, eagles and car logos.

Published by Kerber.
Text by Francesco Bonami.

Helmut Middendorf incorporates found images from comic strips, tabloids and art history in his layered, frenetic paintings. In an interview included in this catalogue of works from the last ten years he lists some of his artistic inspirations: Schwitters, Rauschenberg, Guston and Warhol, and also the novelist Bret Easton Ellis, a line of whose he has employed as a title of several paintings: "We slide on the surface of things."

Continuing Dialogues: A Tribute to Igor ZabelContinuing Dialogues: A Tribute to Igor Zabel

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Christa Benzer, Christine Böhler, Christiane Erharter. Texts by Zdenka Badovinac, Francesco Bonami, Eda Cufer, Zoran Eric, Charles Esche, Maria Hlavajora, Suzana Milevska, Viktor Misiano, Kathrin Rhomberg, Renata Salecl.

The influential Slovenian curator, art critic, writer and theorist Igor Zabel (1958-2005) was largely responsible for putting the Slovenian art scene on the map during the 1990s. As Senior Curator of Ljubljana's Moderna Galerija, he established cultural links between Eastern and Western Europe, developing a unique critical perspective on the ongoing transformation of the post-Communist era. This indispensable volume both develops and creates new contexts for the theories and strategies illustrated by Zabel in his exhibitions, publications, critical writings and European exchange initiatives. It is published collaboratively by the Igor Zabel Association for Culture and Theory in Ljubljana and the Erste Foundation.

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.

Human Game: Winners and LosersHuman Game: Winners and Losers

Published by Charta/Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery.
Edited by Francesco Bonami, Maria Luisa Frisa and Stefano Tonchi. Essays by Ashley Heath, Andrea Lissoni, Mathilda McQuaid, Toby Miller, Peter de Potter, Stefano Pistolini, Olivier Saillard, Roberta Sassatelli, Nick Sullivan, et.al.

How did sports grow from primeval playground games into the worldwide business we know today? This reflection on athletics and their increasingly central role in contemporary society examines their metamorphosis from purely social activities into disciplines combining technology, economy, medicine, communication, fashion and art. The increasing spread of sports culture has altered habits and ways of dressing all over the world, marking us all as members of the tribe of athletes (never mind the infighting between Nike and Adidas or high-tech and retro factions). This powerful compilation of research, analysis and visuals looks into the influence of sports, sports celebrities and sportswear in fields as varied as film, fashion, art, advertising and architecture. Designed by acclaimed graphic firm "Hola", the book is organized under themes such as Speed, Protection, Functioning, Lightness, Sensuality, Resistance, Tradition, Mutation, Unisex and Entertainment. Media phenomena considered include Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, Mike Tyson and Venus and Serena Williams alongside fashion forces like Nike, Reebok, Adidas and Puma, with illustrations of the ways in which garments are transformed and specific trends become cult objects. Their influence on high-end fashion is seen in the work of Giorgio Armani, Prada, Stella McCartney and Lagerfeld for Chanel. And then there is the work of contemporary artists like Matthew Barney, Uri Tzaig, Douglas Gordon, Angela Bulloch and Annika Larson, pieces that both engage with and analyze these trends, approaching sport as a symbolic territory. This look into the connections between athletics and our social, political and cultural life begins to parse the meaning of our culture's biggest obsession.

Andy Warhol: SupernovaAndy Warhol: Supernova

Stars, Deaths and Disasters 1962-1964

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Douglas Fogle. Essays by Francesco Bonami, Douglas Fogle and David Moos.

In the age of mass media, American culture has displayed an unequaled fascination with both celebrities and disasters. Andy Warhol was one of the first artists to investigate these twin obsessions, beginning in the mid-1960s, as he shifted his practice from hand-painting to the mechanical photo silkscreen process. Andy Warhol/Supernova brings together more than 50 examples of the artist's early silkscreen work, juxtaposing his iconic serial images of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Elvis Presley with his evocative and often disturbing appropriations of car crashes, electric chairs, and other "disasters," appropriated from photojournalism and made side by side. The combination provides a glimpse into a prevailing condition of American modernity--this dual fascination with fame and tragedy--that remains a key component of our national identity. Looking back at this body of masterworks, now some 40 years old, it becomes clear that if some things have changed, more have stayed the same.

Raf SimonsRaf Simons

Published by Charta/Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery.
Edited by Peter De Potter. Texts by Francesco Bonami, Marc Foxx, Maria Luisa Frisa, Jo-Ann Furniss, Ashley Heath, Ralf Hutter, Terry Jones, Mark Leckey, Simon Price and Collier Schorr.

Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons' clothes are both inspired by and designed for confident male outsiders. His references to youth movements (like punk, goth, and mod) are not meant to be retro; instead Simons tries to translate their energy and determination into modern statements about mental independence. Yet, although they are impeccably cut and created with love and care, clothes are not at the core of Simons' universe. More important to this cult stylist are attitudes, moods and statements. Music, art, performance, images and words have each been a starting point for his designs, and, in an attempt to examine today's male psyche Simons takes his inspiration from the rebellion of past and present youth cultures, blending these notions with tradition and roots. This book--published on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of Simons's work--presents both a wide range of the intellectual and creative aspects of the designer's work that have sealed his position at the top of fashion's roster.

Universal Experience: Art, Life, And The Tourist'S EyeUniversal Experience: Art, Life, And The Tourist'S Eye

Published by D.A.P./MCA, Chicago.
Essays by Francesco Bonami, Carol Becker, Alain de Boton, Lucy Lippard, Susan Sontag and Nancy Spector. Foreword by Robert Fitzpatrick.

Drawing from such disciplines as anthropology, sociology, economics, art criticism and travel writing, Universal Experience is both a sizeable illustrated catalogue of the exhibition at the MCA, Chicago and a companion to the experience of contemporary travel and tourism. This volume draws on the proliferation of research surrounding the social, geographic and cultural dimensions of mobility and outputs this information as an anthology of articles, essays and excerpts. The primary focus of the exhibition, however, is on artworks created by a group of international visual artists who create work in response to travel among multiple cultures--both high and low, and local and foreign. While serving as a “travel guide” to the latest sociological and political research and commentary on tourism and travel, Universal Experience also features a compelling mix of text and more than 170 images in an engaging format that will appeal to high scholars and popular audiences alike. Artists range from well knowns like Rem Koolhaas, Andy Warhol, Vito Acconci, Jeff Koons, and Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, to emerging artists such as Franz Ackermann, Mathias Muller, Shirana Shahbazi, Yukata Sone, Pascale Marthine Tayou and Piötr Uklanski. Complimenting and illuminating the works of these artists is a collection of written works by Francesco Bonami, Carol Becker, Alain de Botton, Nancy Spector, Susan Sontag, Lucy Lippard, Robert Fitzpatrick and others.

Vanessa Beecroft: VB53Vanessa Beecroft: VB53

Published by Charta/Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery.
Edited by Maria Luisa Frisa. Essay by Francesco Bonami.

VB 53 provides documentation of Vanessa Beecroft's most recent performance at Pitti Immagine Uomo 66 in Florence's Horticultural Garden. 21 models of varying appearance and race were planted in a mass of earth in the tepidarium. All were nude except for a single accessory: Helmut Lang shoes that wrapped around their ankles, separating their bare legs from the bare, rough earth. According to Beecroft, “The sole is reference to land art. Very dark and humid, like the rich foam of cultivated fields... The performance juxtaposes the purity of the female body, their nudity, with the dirty color of the soil and its material. Some models look like lillies, others like potatoes. Lilies and potatoes can also grow in filth.” The 50 images in this book illuminate Beecroft's signature issues: the body, beauty and identity.

Italian EyesItalian Eyes

Italian Fashion Photography from 1951 to Today

Published by Charta/Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery.
Edited by Maria Luisa Frisa. Essays by Francesco Bonami, Mariuccia Casadio, Giusi Ferré, Mario Lupano, Antonio Mancinelli, Claudio Marra, Anna Mattirolo and Stefano Tonchi.

Only recently has fashion photography been accurately seen as an important medium within contemporary visual culture: it has evolved from a mere supporting role of reproduction into a creator of icons and ideas, and a veritable form of art. Its power, in defining itself as a means of communication, is to record, or even determine today's lifestyle. Italian Eyes not only shines a much-deserved light on Italians who have made photographic history, but also highlights an Italian style that goes beyond fashion, thus offering a repertoire of images that reconstruct the changes in fashion and the evolution of society from the end of World War II to the present. Italian Eyes presents the most important fashion magazines in the world and the advertising campaigns photographed for Italian and international designers--a sort of visual atlas of Italian evolution of fashion photography. Various chapters unfold with images accompanied by texts analyzing fashion photography according to different themes: portrait, narration, the fashion photo set, the evolution of masculine and feminine images, and others.
Some of the featured photographers include: Maria Vittoria Backhaus, Aldo Ballo, Giampaolo Barbieri, Gabriele Basilico, Manfredi Bellati, Roberto Calabr/, Roberto Carra, Giovanna Calvenzi, Sergio Caminata, Lorenzo Capellini, Alfa Castaldi, Elisabetta Catalano, Attilio Concari, Maria Vittoria Corradi, Barbara D'Alessandri, Gianni Della Valle, Aldo Fallai, Marina Fausti, Fabrizio Ferri, Franco Fontana, Angelo Frontoni, Andrea Gandini, Giovanni Gastel, Piero Gemelli, Arturo Ghergo, Helsa Haertter, Aldo Giuliani, Marco Glaviano, Renato Grignaschi, Guido Harari, Frank Horvat, Bob Krieger, Giorgio Lari, Bodi Leombruno, Ugo Mulas, Carlo Orsi, Stefania Paparelli, Federico Patellani, Emanuela Pavesi, Alberto Rizzo, Paolo Roversi, Franco Rubartelli, Ferdinando Scianna, Tazio Secchiaroli, Susanna Sinclair, Mario Sorrenti, Valerio Spada, Toni Thoribert, Alberta Tiburzi, Oliviero Toscani and Fabio Zonta.

54th Carnegie International54th Carnegie International

Published by Carnegie Museum of Art.
Essays by Gary Garrels, Laura Hoptman, Midori Matsui, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Francesco Bonami, Elizabeth Smith, Jean-Pierre Mercier, Branka Stipancic, and Elizabeth Thomas. Foreword by Richard Armstrong.

When Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Museum of Art, his goal was to introduce the people of Pittsburgh to paintings by modern American and European artists. His vision for developing the collection program centered on purchases from an annual exhibition of modern art, now known as the Carnegie International. First held in 1896, the exhibition is the longest running survey of recent art in North America. What was modern then is contemporary in 2004, and the 54th Carnegie International promises to fulfill the exhibition's long-standing tradition of assembling the best contemporary art from around the world . A large-format, fully illustrated exhibition catalogue accompanies this tightly conceived exhibition of interrelated projects grouped around three small monographic exhibitions. These three exhibitions present the work of artists whose lengthy and influential oeuvres serve as touchstones for the larger exhibition. Catalogue entries prepared by a variety of writers with curatorial or critical expertise document the work of 40 artists from all over the world. The artists range in age from 28 to 80 and work in diverse media, including painting, sculpture, installation, performance, film, video, animation, and ceramics. (Artists will be announced in June 2004.) Each artist will be presented through a short essay accompanied by a three-page spread of color images, as well as comprehensive biographical and bibliographic information. The catalogue features an introduction by Laura Hoptman, curator, and expanded essays on three artists will punctuate the book.

Fiona Tan: CorrectionFiona Tan: Correction

Published by Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
Essay by Francesco Bonami, Joel Snyder and Tessa Jackson. Foreword by Robert Fitzpatrick, Lisa Phillips and Ann Philbin.

A filmed photograph stretches time, and in those often uncomfortable moments a lot happens: The viewer can see the embarrassment, bewilderment, and anger or the curiosity and shyness due to the confrontation with the camera. --Fiona Tan
Artist Fiona Tan works somewhere in between the still photograph and the moving picture. In her “moving photographs,” the before and after of the captured image is revealed; that which lies outside the frame crawls in. Correction, her latest project and the first to be made in the United States, includes several hundred filmed portraits of prisoners and prison guards, a multitude of citizens whom society seemingly prefers to lock away and keep out of sight. Consistent with her earlier work, Correction incorporates sociological and anthropological principles into an exploration of medium-specific concerns.

Hiroshi Sugimoto: ArchitectureHiroshi Sugimoto: Architecture

Published by D.A.P./Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
Photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Edited by Francesco Bonami. Contributions by John Yau. Text by Marco de Michelis, Robert Fitzpatrick.

Known for his long-exposure photographic series of empty movie theaters and drive-ins, seascapes, museum dioramas, and waxworks, Hiroshi Sugimoto has been turning his camera on international icons of twentieth-century architecture since 1997. His deliberately blurred and seemingly timeless photographs depict structures as diverse as the Empire State Building, Le Corbusier's Chapel de Nütre Dame du Haut, and Tadao Ando's Church of Light in Osaka. The resulting black-and-white photographs, shot distinctly out of focus and from unusual angles, are not attempts at documentation but rather evocation--meant to isolate the buildings from their contexts, allowing them to exist as dreamlike, uninhabited ideals. Among the other buildings represented in the series are Philippe Starck's Asahi Breweries, Fumihiko Maki's Fujisawa Municipal Gymnasium, the United Nations Building, the Chrysler Building, Giuseppi Terragni's Santelia Monument Como, the World Trade Center, Mies van der Rohe's Seagram Building, Antonio Gaud''s Casa Batll* II, the 1922 Schindler House, and buildings by Frank Gehry, Frank Lloyd Wright, and many others in Europe, North America and Asia.

The Fourth SexThe Fourth Sex

Adolescent Extremes

Published by Charta.
Artwork by Jake Chapman, Dinos Chapman, Gillian Wearing, Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, Vanessa Beecroft, Richard Billingham, Robert Gober, Dan Graham, Andreas Gursky, Bill Henson, Mike Kelley, Mike Kelley, Raymond Pettibon, Elizabeth Peyton, Richard Prince, Photographs by Larry Clark, Rineke Dijkstra, Katy Grannan, Justine Kurland, Collier Schorr, Jeff Wall. Edited by Francesco Bonami, Maria Luisa Frisa. Text by Takashi Murakami, Wolfgang Tillmans.

Omnivorous and indefatigable, suggestible but independent, adolescents don't want to be balanced. They love extremes of everything from fashion and art to music and the Internet. Observed and studied by experts of all kinds, their behavior monitored by psychologists, educators, and marketing executives, adolescents represent a decisive and increasingly valuable segment of the buying public. They adore and consume trendy clothes and brand-new bands; they must be cool regardless of the cost. And adults turn to them more and more for clues on how to remain forever young and hip. The Fourth Sex turns a critical, illustrated spotlight on adolescence, a territory of transition crisscrossed by the most varied creative energies. A series of iconographic materials begins in the 1960s and moves up to the present, revealing clothes, behavior patterns, novels, and visual artworks created or inspired by the transnational tribe that are teenagers. Excerpted authors include David Foster Wallace, Arata Isozaki, Philip Roth, William Golding, J.G. Ballard, Beavis & Butthead, Jim Carroll, Stephen King, Vladimir Nabokov, Douglas Coupland, Dick Hebdige, Bret Easton Ellis, and Dave Eggers. Represented artists include Vanessa Beecroft, Raymond Pettibon, Mike Kelley, Elizabeth Peyton, Karen Kilimnik, Charles Ray, Takashi Murakami, Larry Clark, Rineke Dijkstra, Paul McCarthy, Richard Prince, Gilbert & George, Gavin Turk, and Richard Billingham. And modeled fashion and lifestyle designers include Malcolm MacLaren, Paco Rabanne, Benetton, Veronique Branquinho, Comme des Gar°ons, Stssy, Coca-Cola, PlayStation, Diesel, Katherine Hamnett, and David Sims. The book's shifting, politically incorrect graphic style gives form and color to all the contradictions and ambiguities of an unhappy age that we never cease to remember with nostalgia and the occasional twinge of pain. Published in association with Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery.

Giuseppe GabelloneGiuseppe Gabellone

Artwork by Giuseppe Gabellone. Edited by Francesco Bonami.

Emerging Italian artist Giuseppe Gabellone laboriously crafts structures--some sleek and minimal, others biomorphic and earthy--and frequently destroys them soon after taking their photograph. The resulting images plumb associations with documentary photography and with ideas of presence and absence.

Total LivingTotal Living

Art, Fashion, Design, Architecture, Communication

Published by Charta.
Edited by Maria Luisa Frisa, Mario Lupano and Stefano Tonchi. Essays by Paola Antonelli, Francesco Bonami, Michele Ciavarella, Emanuela De Cecco, Ricardo Dirindin, Maria Luisa Frisa, Mario Lupano, Roberto Monelli, Herbert Muschamp, Chee Pearlman, Michelle Serenini, Dietmar Steiner, Dejan Sudjic and Stefano Tonchi.

Styles and lifestyles are fast becoming uniform under labels and definitions of fashion, and as an industry and a cultural form. Total Living is the point of no return in a project which, step-by-step, develops strategies whose goal it is to offer an even more sophisticated and targeted lifestyle. It is a place where there are definitions for clothes, behavior modes, and even the atmoshpheres and spaces in which one moves. Assuming the contours of a landscape of the future, this scenario raises topical themes and problems connected with the overwhelming power of consumerism. Accompanying scholarly essays consider the thematic universes of fashion designers and brands; models of total living in 20th century history; references to total living in mass culture; living and eating; arty fashion and fashionable art; the world of fashion design; the languages of shopping; urban fashion districts; and advertising as a narrative. A fabulously rich and interconnected iconographic passage visually narrates the various forms and ramifications of total living today and in the recent past through a succession of utopias, life-projects, urban visions, architecture, special homes, stores, art galleries, museums, and editorial pages and ads from fashion and lifestyle magazines. Total Living shows life for the show that it is--or has become. Published in collaboration with Pitti Immagine.

Hedi Slimane: IntermissionHedi Slimane: Intermission

Published by Charta.
Text by Francesco Bonami.

Brad Pitt was married in one of his suits, John Galliano dressed in one of his jackets to receive a prestigious award, Karl Lagerfeld never wears anything else, and women as dashing and fashionable as Madonna, Catherine Deneuve and Cecilia Dean go drag to wear his designs. Hedi Slimane, the young designer who left Yves Saint Laurent to reinvent Christian Dior's menswear image, embraces "the cosmopolitanism of the old-school couturier" as well as "the conventional trappings of the modern-day designer." He reconfigures classical pieces via subtle tailoring tricks, discreetly adding such dandified details as black leather carnation buttonholes, tiny emerald-cut diamond pins clipped to a pant fly, and clear sequins dispersed in the folds of pleats. He is the leader of an anti-technological, anti-velcro revolution that is striving to take men's fashions forward to the luxurious, armorial, sophisticated standards of time past. As Slimane himself has said, "For me, tradition is now." Intermission was conceived and built by Slimane himself as an artist's book and is published in collaboration with Pitti Immagine.

Doug Aitken: Notes For New ReligionDoug Aitken: Notes For New Religion

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Francesco Bonami, Henry Grunwald, Jorg Heiser and Gijs van Tuyl.

The installation "Electric Earth," debuted at the 1999 Venice Biennale, brought international recognition to the video and media artist Doug Aitkin. In the piece, a dancer roams a transitory realm of wasted landscapes. Aitken, whose protagonists are usually natural landscapes and cityscapes, here links the electrified structures of our urban world with the nervous system of the human body. The piece, with its pop-surrealist overtones, also reveals Aitken's roots as a director of music videos. This artist's book, laid out in a landscape format, presents fascinating views of natural and urban lanscapes and structures from the video. Gijs van Tuyl, in his essay, writes, "You don't have to look through it passively from A to Z...it offers up a space in which the reader can move freely...in order to create a story in the here and now, in the flow of time."

Pocket Dictionary

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Florian Matzner. Essays by Daniel Birnbaum, Francesco Bonami, Markus Muller, Pier Luigi Tazzi.

This is the first full-length publication devoted to Tobias Rehberger, a shooting star on the German art scene. Born in 1966, Rehberger studied at the Frankfurt St‚delschule, and has worked in a dizzying variety of media--architecture and sculpture as well as painting, design, and film--over the past five years. Rehberger is a new breed of artist--one whose work combines a future-oriented modernist ethic with a postmodern sense of play and disdain for categorical distinctions.Tobias Rehberger: 005-000 provides an overview of the artist's exhibition activities in museums and galleries as well as in public spaces, including the Tsutsumu garden, his recent installation at the Hanover EXPO 2000. This publication, one of the first books devoted to Rehberger alone, features personal and critical texts by such artists and scholars as Daniel Birnbaum, Francesco Bonami, Florian Matzner, Markus Mller, and Pierluigi Tazzi.

Uniform: Order And DisorderUniform: Order And Disorder

Published by Charta.
Edited by Francesco Bonami, Maria Luisa Frisa, Stefano Tonchi, Essays by Daniele Brolli, Richard Buckley, Patrizia Calefato, Giusi Ferre, Lorenzo Greco, Cristina Lucchini, Stefano Pistolini, James Sherwood, Amy Springler, Nick Sullivan.

Do uniforms-- objects of fascination to many--unite or distinguish individuals? Do they create reassuring equality or disturbing balkanization? The uniform, starting point for modern dress, combines functional and formal qualities in a situation of mass production and serves to equalize individuals regardless of social status. The aim of this book is to reinterpret, from a contemporary point of view, the uniform as a prototype of male dress, focusing on how the formal and technical perfection of military garments has become a hidden form of reference for today's fashion. In Uniform--edited by Francesco Bonami, Maria Luisa Frisa and Stefano Tonchi, and designed by Studio Camuffo--art, fashion, film, and pop culture coexist in parallel spaces, in constant dialogue with each other. In a sort of cultural parasitism the editors of this book work with and on a wide range of heterogeneous materials--like fabrics, ad campaigns, icon garments, symbolic images, comics and films--in order to explore changes in the social function of the uniform as well as the cultural changes conditioning this function. Retracing the itinerary of the complex system that is the history and present of fashion, Uniform provides an unprecedented decoding of its language and aesthetics.

Words Of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade MecumWords Of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum

Published by Independent Curators International, New York.
Edited by Carin Kuoni. Essays by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Carlos Basualdo, René Block, Francesco Bonami, Dan Cameron, Lynne Cooke, Bice Curiger, Donna De Salvo, Richard Flood, Thelma Golden, Yuko Hasegawa, Jean-Hubert Martin, Gerardo Mosquera, Hans Ulrich Obrist.

A modern update of the Medieval trade manuals--the 'come-along-with-me' (vade mecum) of Medieval craftsmen--Words of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum is an invaluable guidebook for anyone interested in contemporary art and the practice of curating. In over fifty short essays, this compendium offers advice to a new generation of curators from veterans of contemporary art exhibitions who, over the past 25 years, have played a crucial role in shaping what we see today, and how we see it. While providing an intimate look at the minds of these master curators, Words of Wisdom also establishes the curator's craft as an important vocation that has changed tremendously over the past quarter-century. In the course of their musings, the curators offer behind-the-scenes insights into influential exhibitions and institutions and the contemporary art world they represent. Among the contributors are Jean-Christophe Amman, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt, Germany; Donna de Salvo, curator at the Tate Gallery, London; Richard Flood, chief curator at the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; independent curator Hans Ulrich Obrist; and Marcia Tucker, founding director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.

Arte Povera came of age in the context of the ''Italian miracle'' economic boom and the subsequent student and workers revolts of 1968, motivated by an urge to revolt not only against the primacy of painting in the postwar period, but also against the emerging consumer culture. This exhibition and its accompanying catalogue provide a highly comprehensive retrospective of the Arte Povera movement as a historical and aesthetic phenomenon that crossed a wide range of disciplines, including sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, film and performance. The exhibition traces Arte Povera's genesis within the artistic and political context of Italy to its positioning within the broader international context of postwar artistic practices, a moment marked by the participation of the Arte Povera group in the 1972 Documenta V exhibition in Kassel. This essential new catalogue is designed by the Walker Art Center's award-winning design department, and includes a wide range of essays by international scholars and curators, as well as rare historical documentation, in an unprecedented re-examination of the Arte Povera movement.
