Thomas Demand: AnimationsThomas Demand: Animations

Published by Des Moines Art Center.
Edited by Carrie Schmitz. Introduction by Jeff Fleming. Text by Michael Fried, Bruce Sterling.

Animations accompanies the first museum exhibition to focus on the films and videos of the acclaimed contemporary German artist and photographer Thomas Demand (born 1964). Demand is best known for his large-scale color photographs of objects or sites taken from images in the popular media, which he painstakingly reconstructs in paper. With these new films and videos, Demand has taken this practice to the next stage, extending his investigations in to real time and space by animating his paper constructions. The primary focus of the volume is the two-minute tour de force video entitled “Pacific Sun,” which takes place in a cruise ship bar during a violent storm at sea. This volume--the first to survey Demand’s films and videos--brings these latest works back full circle, but as video stills. Also included is a major essay on the artist by the acclaimed photo critic Michael Fried.

Thomas Demand: Processo Grottesco / YellowcakeThomas Demand: Processo Grottesco / Yellowcake

Published by Progetto Prada Arte.
Foreword by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli.Text by Germano Celant, Alex Farquharson, Robert Storr, Carlo Bonini.

This elegant, boxed set introduces two new works by Thomas Demand, both presented during the 2007 Venice Biennale. The first volume presents “Processo Grottesco,” a life-sized paper model of a grotto--complete with stalagmites and stalactites--that was exhibited along with other source materials and Demand’s final photographic images. With a section of its pages cut in two, so that one can flip through old cave postcards on top or details of the finished artwork on the bottom, this volume contains rich, exhaustive documentation of the project, including historical documents, working drawings, models in progress, close-up details and final artworks, as well as an essay by Germano Celant. The second, slimmer, silver-edged volume presents the Yellowcake photographs, which portray the Nigerian Embassy in Rome--famous for “sparking” the United States’ 2003 invasion of Iraq. It includes essays by Robert Storr and Alex Farquharson, as well as a summary of “Nigergate” by investigative journalist Carlo Bonini.

Thomas Demand: L'Esprit d'EscalierThomas Demand: L'Esprit d'Escalier

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Ulrich Baer, Dave Eggers, Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith, Rachael Thomas, David Foster Wallace.

Stairs, ladders and lifts are the motifs of Thomas Demand's latest monograph, L'Esprit d'Escalier, which is published on the occasion of his show at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin. The title actually refers to so-called "staircase wit," that concise French expression for the chagrin of missed retorts--those hapless comebacks one only ever thinks up belatedly (i.e. when already descending the stairs): "I should've said (fill in blank)!" etc. One of Demand's ironic allusions to his title is a new work titled "Landing," which shows the shards of broken Qing vases on a staircase--a mishap caused by a visitor to The Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge in January 2006, who stumbled on his shoelaces and crashed into the three eighteenth-century vases, smashing them to pieces. As ever, Demand combines conceptual rigor and exacting craft in his painstakingly re-created sets, with their eerie edge of artifice. L'Esprit d'Escalier presents an overview of his current work in 23 large photographs, plus a film project and an architectural installation specially prepared for his Irish Museum exhibition. Alongside an excerpt from David Foster Wallace's Girl with Curious Hair, it also includes commissioned writings by Dave Eggers, Paul Oliver, Caoimhín Mac Giolla Leith, Rachael Thomas and Enrique Juncosa.

Thomas Demand: KlauseThomas Demand: Klause

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Andreas Bee. Contributions by Dieter Dath, Christian Demand, Joachim Valentin, Udo Kittelmann.

The Berlin-based conceptual artist Thomas Demand, born in 1964 in Munich, makes hypnotically '"off" large-scale photographs of painstakingly rendered construction-paper models of architectural spaces and natural environments that he fabricates in his studio. In this small, tight board book printed on thick matte paper, Demand documents his most recent project: a series of five photographs that respond to the "degenerate" mid-century painter Max Beckmann's recently discovered lithograph series, Apocalypse. In Demand's interpretation, the horrifying incident is not Biblical; instead he recreates, with incredibly creepy precision, the environment of a provincial German pub where a recent child abuse and murder scandal took place. The 52 reproductions in Klause reveal cinematically suspenseful details of this project, but do not include the five resulting photographic artworks, which were unveiled during the Summer of 2006 at the Modern Art Museum of Frankfurt.

Thomas Demand: B&K+Thomas Demand: B&K+

Bienal de Sao Paulo 2004

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essays by Douglas Fogle, Helmut Friedel and Bart Lootsma.

Conceptualized by Thomas Demand himself, this book includes three components: a newspaper, a magazine and a book--each of them published on different paper. The newspaper presents the artist's older works; the magazine, printed on glossy paper, introduces new photo works in color and stills from the film Trick; the book portion documents the exhibition architecture. B&K + is a small book, but one of the most comprehensive views of Demand's work per square footage.

Thomas DemandThomas Demand

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essay by Roxana Marcoci. Short story by Jeffrey Eugenides.

German artist Thomas Demand occupies a singular position in the world of photography. Initially he took up photography to record his ephemeral paper constructions, but in 1993 he turned the tables by making constructions in order to photograph them. Demand begins by translating a preexisting image, usually culled from the media, into a life-size model he makes out of colored paper and cardboard. He recreates a room, a parking lot, a staircase, a landscape--then he photographs the model and destroys it. Demand's photographs appear at once compellingly real and strangely artificial. Since their subjects--handcrafted facsimiles of both architectural spaces and natural environments--are themselves built in the image of other images, the photographs are three times removed from the scenes they seek to depict. Combining craftsmanship and conceptualism in equal parts, Demand pushes the medium of photography toward uncharted frontiers. Given the cinematic quality of many of his photographs, it is not surprising that he has set some of them in motion, producing five 35 mm films. This comprehensive publication presents all of Demand's major works from 1993 to the present. It includes previously unpublished archival documentation, and offers compelling insight into his working process and the stories behind his pictures.
