Christian Jankowski: Strip The Auctioneer at Christie'sChristian Jankowski: Strip The Auctioneer at Christie's

Published by Walther König, Köln.

Designed to mimic a Christie's catalogue, this artist's book documents Christian Jankowski's auction-performance in which the auctioneer sells off the artist's clothes (which he wears during the auction) and even, finally, his hammer. The book alternates the transcription of this comical event with a description of items sold.

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Marion Ackermann, Michael Althen, Ruth Diehl, Francesca Gavin.

Whether Hula-hooping in a museum, tele-shopping at an art fair or participating in a TVcooking show, German Conceptualist Christian Jankowski inserts himself with sly humor into popular-culture and art-business contexts to question the role of art and media in our society. This volume surveys Jankowski's oeuvre.

Christian Jankowski: Frankenstein SetChristian Jankowski: Frankenstein Set

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Christoph Keller, Cynthia Leung. Text by Henry Jenkins, Martin Breutigam, Steffen Hantke.

Christian Jankowski's films, photographs and sculptures make ingenious play with the vocabulary of the horror movie, a genre traditionally inimical to high art treatment. But Jankowski loves to thwart exclusion, and has built a singular oeuvre from his imaginative takes on horror. In Playing Frankenstein (2006) Jankowski found a young actor who was convinced he was Boris Karloff and challenged him to a game of chess; in Angels of Revenge (also 2006) he persuaded visitors to an academic conference on horror to enact fantasized revenge scenarios. In other works, he has deliberately conjoined the practice of horror film-making with academic discourse on film, making grist for his unique vision from both realms. This chunky little pocket book, part of an artist's project series edited by Christoph Keller, offers an examination of the genre from Jankowski's perspective, presenting theoretical texts, interviews, stills, props and transcripts from Jankowski's films.

Christian Jankowski: Everything Fell TogetherChristian Jankowski: Everything Fell Together

Published by Des Moines Art Center.
Edited by Ellen R. Feldman and Emily Speers Mears. Essays by Jeff Fleming, Jordan Kantor, Norman Klein and Bruce Wagner. Introduction by Susan Talbott. Interview by Bill Arning.

This survey of Christian Jankowski's career in film, video, photography and installation is the first to track his progress from 1992 to 2005. Over that time, Jankowski has come to the fore with a circular method of creation in which the very process of making a video, film or installation becomes the content of the work. His interest in studying the relationships and boundaries between fiction and documentary, art and commerce, art and the public and art and popular culture has brought him into collaboration with children, magicians, customs officials, artists, therapists, psychics and television preachers, giving them what seems to be creative responsibility, but quietly retaining the framing and, of course, the last word. Jankowski's subtly funny and decidedly engaging critique of the nature of contemporary art production makes him one of the most thought-provoking image makers working today. The exhibition upon which this book is based was highlighted by Artforum as one of the top shows not to miss, worldwide.

Christian Jankowski: Play

Published by De Appel Foundation, Amsterdam.
Artwork by Christian Jankowski. Edited by Edna Van Duyn. Text by Jàrg Heiser.

German video artist Christian Jankowski likes to play, as in these stills from his videos, in which he uses a bow and arrow to hunt for his daily necessities at a supermarket, invites passersby to sit in a storefront window and express their personal shame (with no time limit), is turned into a dove by a magician for the duration of a three-week exhibition, and asks TV fortune-tellers for predictions about his career as an artist.
