Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Doede Hardemann, Doris Mampe. Foreword by Benno Temple. Text by Lynne van Rhijn.

“To express yourself in art is horrible,” German artist Jonathan Meese (born 1970) once said. In this volume, he proves his point with a body of work that consists exclusively of self-portraits ranging from graffitied photos to collages, and paintings both realistic and abstracted, until their subject, himself, loses its personal significance.

Edited by Björn Egging. Text by Björn Egging, Friederike Fast.

Over the last 15 years, German artist Jonathan Meese (born 1970) has created around 100 printed works, which are presented here in their entirety along with a formal catalogue raisonné of his print production. The large-format lithographs, etchings and woodcuts generally depict effigies, which serve both as metaphors of cultural history and the alter ego of the artist.

Jonathan Meese: Dash Snow FanzineJonathan Meese: Dash Snow Fanzine

Published by Walther König, Köln/Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin.

New York artist Dash Snow’s death in July 2009, two weeks before his 28th birthday, sent waves of grief through the art world and prompted numerous homage exhibits and events. In 2007, Snow had visited Berlin for his exhibition The End of Living, the Beginning of Survival, held at Contemporary Fine Arts. Photographers Jan Bauer, Bruno Brunnet, Jochen Littkemann, Franziska Sinn and Lutz Weinmann were on hand to record the visit, and for this homage fanzine/artist’s book, the German multimedia artist Jonathan Meese has selected from their photographs to memorialize and celebrate his friend. Meese collages abstract geometrical paper shapes, scrawls comments, adds big globs and splashes of paint to the images of Snow in Berlin, rendering the chaotic, prolific creative energies of both Snow and himself in a defiant visual eulogy.

Jonathan Meese: The Arch-State of AtlantisisJonathan Meese: The Arch-State of Atlantisis

Published by DuMont Buchverlag.
Text by Oliver Kornhoff, Daniel J. Schreiber, et al.

This volume collects the complete sculptural work of Jonathan Meese—which tend to quickly spill over into paintings, installation, video and collage. Meese is the maker of his own cosmos, which is inhabited by Caligula, Stalin, the Marquis de Sade, Richard Wagner, Balthus and Dr. No, to name only a few. Pursuing this cosmos, Meese has now rediscovered Atlantis and here reaches “The Arch-State of Atlantisis.”

Jonathan Meese: Totaler MetabolismusJonathan Meese: Totaler Metabolismus

Published by Walther König, Köln.

Berlin-based performance and multimedia artist Jonathan Meese strikes against “creativity” as a fashionable form of exclusive self-actualization via a storm of propaganda consisting of almost 400 collages and belligerent hand-illustrated manifestos. The book's title suggests a proclamation of the most ultra-radical utopia of all time, what its maker terms a “Dictatorship of Art.”

Jonathan Meese: Die Diktatur der Kunst, Das radikalste BuchJonathan Meese: Die Diktatur der Kunst, Das radikalste Buch

Published by Walther König, Köln.

This may be Jonathan Meese's most insolent and confrontational artist's book to date. With the nihilism of the disenfranchised, and a hint of play, Meese relentlessly rages against all historical and contemporary social orders, declaring them failed and henceforth completely redundant. The accompanying DVD presents Meese's live performance and declaration of the Dictatorship of Art.

Jonathan Meese: Totale NeutralitätJonathan Meese: Totale Neutralität

Published by Walther König.

In a torrent of collages, drawings, photos of the artist and bold Teutonic graphics, Jonathan Meese's Totale Neutralität expresses his dream of a utopian "dictatorship of art," with the credo that "art must be more radical than reality, then the evil spirits don't stand a chance." This artist's book includes a DVD showing Meese at work, installing an exhibition and in his studio in Berlin.

Jonathan Meese: Drawings. Vol. IJonathan Meese: Drawings. Vol. I

Published by Walther König/Contemporary Fine Arts.

In his early drawings from the 1990s--with their energetically-rendered juxtapositions of text and image--German artist Jonathan Meese gave voice to a particularly contemporary strain of abjection: “Soon I’ll have a lot to say, sorry,” reads one. “I feel like I’m shuddering all over,” declares another. And a third is helpfully labeled, “This is someone burning from the inside out.” Continuing in this vein, Meese’s captions illustrate hundreds of works--created on his mother’s living room floor while he was in his twenties, with the cheapest available materials. They feature Expressionistic figures with distorted features--and, though drawn with great urgency, feel very delicately composed. As seen together in this volume, the importance of these drawings emerges. They are the angst-filled foundation of Meese’s mature work--a tortured mélange of installation, sculpture and performance that is infamously contentious and internationally renowned.
