Published by Blue Kingfisher Limited.
Edited by Lu Jingjing, Zhang Xiyuan. Text by Eungie Joo, Gregor Jansen, Hou Hanru, Leng Lin, Mark Wilson, Philippe Vergne, Sarah Suzuki, Sue-an van der Zijpp, Yin Xiuzhen, Sabine Wang.

One of the most popular Chinese artists exhibiting internationally, and the first female Chinese artist to be exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Yin Xiuzhen (born 1963) is one of the most intriguing artistic chroniclers of modern life in China, and of the massive changes its economic boom has wrought upon the urban landscape. Perhaps her best known work is her Portable City series, for which she reconstructs world cities inside suitcases, using clothing recycled from residents of the city. Conjuring both fairy tales and thrift stores, these pieces originated in Xiuzhen’s witnessing the urban transformations of her native Beijing. Fabric and recycled clothing are recurrent materials throughout her sculptures. This substantial, 308-page catalogue is the first broad retrospective of her work to date, with 300 color illustrations and numerous reviews and interviews.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: For Tomorrow For TonightApichatpong Weerasethakul: For Tomorrow For Tonight

Published by Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Edited by Maeve Butler, Eimear O’ Raw. Foreword by Enrique Juncosa. Text by Enrique Juncosa, Tony Rayns, Eungie Joo, Chris Dercon.

Working outside the strict confines of the Thai film studio system, renowned Thai film director Apichatpong Weerasethakul (born 1970) has directed several acclaimed features and dozens of short films, including Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, winner of the prestigious 2010 Palme d’Or prize at Cannes; Tropical Malady, winner of a 2004 Cannes jury prize; and Syndromes and a Century, which premiered at the 63rd Venice Film Festival. Themes in Weerasethakul’s films include dreams, nature, sexuality and Western perceptions of Thailand and Asia; the director also shows a preference for unconventional narrative structures, like placing titles/credits at the middle of a film, and for working with those who have no previous experience of acting. For Tomorrow For Tonight features new work exploring the theme of night through video, photographs and installation.

The Work of Glenn Kaino: Communicating RooksThe Work of Glenn Kaino: Communicating Rooks

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Eungie Joo, Daniel Chamberlin, Hu Fang, Lauri Firstenberg.

Cofounder of Los Angeles' artist-run Deep River Gallery, former Creative Director of Napster and creator of ueber.com, a MySpace alternative made for and by artists, Los Angeles-based artist Glenn Kaino has a multifaceted creative practice. His 2007 interactive installation work, Burning Boards--a room filled with chessboards whose pieces are different-size burning candles, in which competitors play matches using tongs to move the dripping candles--is characteristic of his playfulness and his penchant for meditating on political, pop-cultural and identity issues without being literal. This monograph, which focuses on kinetic sculptures and large-scale installations created over the past 10 years, includes contributions by Hu Fang, Director of Guangzhou's Vitamin Creative Space, LAXART founder Lauri Firstenberg and Eugenie Joo, Director of Education and Public Programs at the New Museum.
Born in 1970, Glenn Kaino, who was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial, is currently represented by The Project in New York.

Life On MarsLife On Mars

The 55th Carnegie International

Published by Carnegie Museum of Art.
Edited by Douglas Fogle. Text by Daniel Birnbaum, Richard Flood, Eungie Joo, Chus Martínez.

Are we alone in the universe? Do aliens exist? Or are we, ourselves, the strangers in our own worlds? Conceived around the title Life on Mars, the 2008 Carnegie International, curated by Douglas Fogle, explores the increasingly relevant yet perplexing proposition of what it means to be human in the world today. The question, "Is there life on Mars?" is a rhetorical one, posing a metaphorical quest to explore humanity's response to a world where global events challenge and seem to threaten our everyday existence. Working in a range of media, from micro to macro levels of experience, from tragedy to comedy, the 40 artists from 17 countries in the exhibition explore the alien inside each of us. They include Doug Aitken, Kai Althoff, Vija Celmins, Bruce Conner, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Daniel Guzmán, Mike Kelley, Barry McGee, Wilhelm Sasnal, David Shrigley, Rudolf Stingel, Paul Thek, Wolfgang Tillmans and Andro Wekua, among others. In questioning the absurdity of our lives while demonstrating hopeful aspirations for the future of humankind, these artists foreground the poetic over the monumental and the intimate over the heroic. In the end, the exhibition asks if we ourselves are already on Mars.

Damián Ortega: The Beetle and Other Works

Published by California Institute of the Arts/Redcat.
Essays by Eungie Joo, Hari Kunzru and Alma Ruiz.

This first North American monograph on Mexican artist Damian Ortega documents 10 years of work focused on conceptual practice, social organization, and humor, including the installations and performances that make up his acclaimed Beetle Trilogy, several works never before exhibited and a great deal of unpublished material. Most of what's here hasn't been seen before. The first episode of the trilogy, "The Cosmic Thing," a disassembled Volkswagen suspended in the air, was featured in Gabriel Orozco's Il Quotidiano Alterato at the 2003 Venice Biennale, and was one of the most widely reproduced images of that year's exhibition. "Moby Dick," a heroic action involving the artist's Beetle, a live band, ropes and pulleys, followed, and then "Beetle '83 Escarabajo," a ritual return to the vehicle's place of birth, closed the cycle. The Beetle Trilogy and Other Works includes a new comic, 150 color images and an original essay by Hari Kunzru, author of The Impressionist and one of Granata's 20 "Best Young British Novelists" in 2003.
