40yearsvideoart.de Part 2

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Christoph Blase, Peter Weibel. Text by René Block, Walter Grasskamp, Wulf Herzogenrath.

Record Again! is one outcome of the laudable “40yearsvideoart.de” conservation project, which has sought to combat the physical fragility and limited life span of outdated formats by tracing lost video works of the 1960s and 1970s. Scouring museum storage closets, archives and artists' basements, the project succeeded in retrieving and restoring over 50 early video works by Joseph Beuys, Ricardi Peredo, Klaus vom Bruch, Egon Bunne, Valeska Gert, Freddy Paul Grunert, Jörg Herold, Nam June Paik, Alexander Kluge, Gerd Kroske, Marcus Kaiser, Korpys/Löffler, Urs Lüthi, Anna Oppermann, Susanne Ofteringer, Klaus Rinke and many others, screening them for the first time in 30 years. Also supplying an illustrated history of video techniques and discussions on modern conservational practices, Record Again! includes texts by artists, curators and media scholars that consider one of the most influential genres in twentieth and twenty-first century art.

What's Fluxus? What's Not! Why.What's Fluxus? What's Not! Why.

Published by Centro Cultural/Banco do Brasil.
Artwork by Robert Filliou, Dick Higgins, Kate Millett, Tomas Schimit, Ben Vautier, Robert Watts, La Monte Young, George Brecht, Allan Kaprow, Per Kirkeby, George Maciunas, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Wolf Vostell. Edited by Jon Hendricks, Thomas Kellein, Joan Rothfuss. Text by Tobias Berger, René Block, Ina Blom, Harry Ruhé, Arthur Danto.

Born of necessity in 1961, fathered by George Maciunas and mothered by the rejection of high art and commerical values, the anti-art Fluxus movement is here recorded with encyclopedic thoroughness. With historical essays by Fluxus artists including George Brecht, Robert Filliou, Dick Higgins, Allan Kaprow, Per Kirkeby, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik and Maciunas, and critical passages by Arthur Danto, Joan Rothfuss, and others, this book questions what it asks, in true Fluxus fashion.

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.

Vostell Automobile

Published by Wasmuth.
Edited by Pablo J. Rico. Essays by Rudij Bergmann, Rene Block, Jose Antonio Agundez Garcia, Jorn Merkert, Michaela Nolte, Heinz Ohff.

Perhaps no single technology has defined the postwar world as much as the automobile. The automobile has shaped our physical landscape--our personal, geographical and atmospheric space--as well as our mental world. Since the 1960s, artist Wolf Vostell has been addressing the automobile--as design object, as modern icon, and as an invention capable of shaping and altering the world around it--in ''auto-sculptures'' and performances. Vostell--Automobile documents Vostell's career over the past 40 years, from his early, Pop-influenced work, to his auto-sculptures, auto-happenings and auto-installations, as well as object-pictures like Zyklus Mania and his Project for a new flag for the German Republic, a proposal for a new flag that would reflect the autmobilization and mechanization of modern life.
