Lightopia investigates the development of light design, taking a novel perspective by placing the current paradigm shift in the larger context of cultural history. The starting point for the book is the Vitra Design Museum’s extensive, never before seen lighting collection, from which particularly rare and important pieces are reproduced here—by designers such as Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier, Achille Castiglioni and Gino Sarfatti. Parallel to these works, contemporary examples from the fields of design and art explore the current developments and transitions in light design: from new illumination concepts and innovative light designs to dynamic urban street lighting and energy efficient multifunctional (media) facades up to art installations and light experiments. Lightopia looks at natural phenomena and new technologies as well as exploring the fundamental emotional power of light. The spectrum of works surveyed extends from light objects inter alia by Troika and Mischer Traxler up to installations by Olafur Eliasson. These art and design objects are juxtaposed with exhibits from different cultural-historical contexts, which all allude to light’s various symbolic connotations and speak of people’s ongoing fascination with light throughout the ages.

The only Austrian winner of the Pritzker Prize (1985) and president of the architecture biennale in Venice, the Viennese architect Hans Hollein (born 1934) has been a leading exponent of postmodernism in architecture. Yet his global stature as an architect has overshadowed his design work of the 1970s and 1980s and his artistic work of the 1960s and 1970s, despite past exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. This richly illustrated, comprehensive catalogue, and the exhibition it accompanies at the Neue Galerie in Graz, is the first retrospective of Hollein as a truly universal artist and a renaissance man for the digital age. It is also the first to present Hollein’s oeuvre as a whole: his work as artist, designer and architect, but also as theoretician, curator, teacher and collaborator with such artists as Christo and Claes Oldenburg.
Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg. Text by Peter Weiss, Alessandro Mendini. Preface by Angelika Nollert.
Published on the occasion of his eightieth birthday, this catalogue gives an overview of the 40-year career of the provocative Italian designer and architect Alessandro Mendini, encompassing objects, furniture, interior decorations, paintings, installations and works of architecture. Mendini’s iconic 1978 “Proust Armchair,” an eighteenth-century style armchair embellished with Pointillist flecks of contrasting colors, celebrates the potential of high kitsch and is now considered a crucial precursor to postmodern furniture. Known for design collaborations with companies such as Alessi, Philips, Swarovski and Swatch, Mendini has made the use of exuberant color one of his signature extravagances. In Mendini’s world, bright chips, blocks and whorls of color play across furniture, wristwatches, objets d’art and even entire buildings. The work of this pioneering designer continues into the present day; his Atelier Mendini has been at work since 2010 on a redesign of the Naples subway.

In October 2010, Jenny Holzer (born 1950) launched an ambitious public artwork in the city of Frankfurt. From the night of October 4 onward, Holzer projected a series of scrolling text works onto six public buildings in the city: the Alte Nikolaikirche, the Römer, the Dreikönigskirche, the Literaturhaus, St. Katharinenkirche and Portikus. All of the texts related to either the city itself or to the history of German Protestantism, and were drawn from the works of philosophers and writers such as Wislawa Szymborska, Theodor Adorno, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Buber, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Sören Kierkegaard, Martin Luther, Friedrich Schleiermacher and Paul Tillich. This volume records the commission, showing how Holzer’s (unusually lengthy) excerpts, set in heavy, sans-serif caps, dramatized Germany’s intellectual and literary heritage.

The religious movements of today no longer depend on the handselling of literature such as bibles, pamphlets etc, but instead operate predominantly with electronic picture media such as video and television that can be disseminated much more widely, and which are capable of enormous rhetorical impact. Medium Religion approaches religion as a media phenomenon, whose expressions are subject to the same laws of reproduction as any other consumer entity, and focuses particularly on geopolitical religious hotspots like the Middle East, Asia, Russia, North America and South America. It contains commentary by (among others) such notable thinkers as Boris Groys, Peter Sloterdijk and Slavoj Zizek; contributing artists include Adel Abdessemed, Oreet Ashery, Maja Bajevic, Paul Chan, Omer Fast, Barbad Golshiri, Kajri Jain, Vitali Komar, Alexander Kosolapov, Nira Pereg, Dorna Safaian, Anri Sala, Michael Schuster, Wael Shawky, Joshua Simon and Jalal Toufic.

In their latest monograph, the Danish-Norwegian duo Elmgreen & Dragset address the world of celebrity: rumor-mongering, life in the public eye, the mechanisms of the media, its formation of myths and how those myths endlessly bombard us with staged presentations of the self. Two allegorical installations on celebrity and its implications of "the one" (the celebrity) and "the many" (the rest of us) were devised for the duo's exhibition at the ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, and are here documented across 100 color plates. In one of the museum's atriums, Elmgreen & Dragset installed a full-scale high-rise apartment block; the other atrium was converted into a neoclassical ballroom. Also documented in this volume are The Welfare Show and the widely acclaimed 2009 Venice Biennale project, The Collectors. The book includes interviews with the duo and with French philosopher Paul Virilio.

Since the early 1980s, Austrian artist Brigitte Kowanz (born 1957) has been exploring neon light effects in works for walls and room installations. Her earliest light works were three-dimensional pictures made of neon, which emitted a phosphorescent light that caused the picture to appear to expand. This volume surveys her considerable body of work.

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.
American dancer and choreographer Richard Siegal is famed for his mergings of bodies and systems. In 2005 he created "If/Then," a piece for two dancers structured as a flowchart organized around gamelike rules: "If I do x, you do y or z," etc. The following year, Siegal collaborated with Hillary Goidell and Florent Berenger to create "If/Then Open Source," an online platform--"predicated on the belief that the beauty of systemic complexity resides in relinquishing individual control to the infinitely more qualified organizational abilities of community development"--whereby visitors can manipulate or add to the basic flowchart of a performance, creating new actions or dragging into new positions existing modules such as "Slap table with both hands simultaneously. Forearms on the table... Justification: An escape" and "Slap the other player as hard as you can. Justification: Violence is never justified." This DVD uses video and text excerpts to examine Siegal's work.

Since the 1970s, photo and media artist Jürgen Klauke (born 1943) has consistently undermined standardized gender identities and behavior patterns through the use of his own body in his work. His most recent series describes the paranoid condition of today's world, translating it into an "Aesthetic Paranoia" that ranges from the minimalist to the excessive and occasionally surreal.

The word "thermocline" describes a layer of water in an ocean or lake where warm and cold currents meet so that temperature changes suddenly according to depth. Likewise, this volume reveals the hidden substance that currently lies beneath the seemingly predictable surface of contemporary Asian art. With works by 117 artists representing 19 countries from the Middle East to the Far East, from Southeast Asia to the Near East and Central Asia, this big, boldly-designed book offers an excellent, comprehensive overview of contemporary Asian art production. Featuring both internationally renowned artists who currently work in the West and up-and-coming artists who still live in their home countries, this broad panorama expands the boundaries of the Western concept of art. Here, Asian art is contemporary and global but also postmodern and postethnic, unveiling the potential conflicts of globalization. Among more than 100 artists featured, some of the better-known names include Yang Fudong, Yael Bartana, Atelier Bow-Wow and Rirkrit Tiravanija. Edited by the prominent expert in media art and contemporary Asian art Wonil Rhee.

All over the world, contemporary art is moving into traditional museums, its institutionalization an ongoing proposition with swiftly evolving practices. And more than ever before, the art of the moment is being made and collected internationally. Global art production is affecting museums everywhere, even those in traditional centers of cultural influence. For international artists, the question is how to get themselves and their work to cultural centers; for their home states and museums, the question is how to assimilate globalized contemporary art and its local stars. While institutions outside the West are often also outside a crucial loop of money and influence, the increasing range of biennials--from Sao Paulo to Senegal's Dak'Art--is redrawing the map. This essay collection explores the impact of contemporary non-western art and the world's local museums. Writers include Peter Weibel of ZKM Karlsruhe and Claude Ardouin of the British Museum.

Mischa Kuball, born in 1959 in Düsseldorf, has projected the flickering aqua light of a swimming pool bottom onto the surface of a Berlin bridge, built a glittering solar system from a disco ball and mirrors and hung spotlights over the footprint of an old bunker hidden under the streets of Lünenburg, Germany. He's also trained his spotlights on contemporary politics, hanging 10 of them over a red carpet outside the Parliament Building in Copenhagen, and then again trained them on his viewers, installing the same piece at the entrance to a museum space. Throughout all this he's been featured in solo exhibitions in Europe, Australia, and the U.S., and as far afield as Tokyo and São Paulo. A forthcoming midcareer retrospective--to include all of the works documented here--is expected to travel to Denmark, Finland, Austria, Italy, Great Britain, Australia, China and Japan.

In the continual disappointment of failed political and social utopias--the 60 and the Eastern Bloc come to mind--artists, like everyone else, often find themselves indulging melancholic nostalgia. Between Two Deaths collects work addressing those feelings of uneasiness and loss, critical-artistic reflections on the political, social and cultural trends towards regret and retrospection. The assembled work observes conservative cultural debates, stagnation, regression, fear, insecurity, lethargy and nostalgia, not with censure but with interest--with curiosity about these feelings, and about the cynical pessimism or oft-prescribed optimism that follows. With contributions from Bas Jan Ader, Sebastian Diaz-Morales, Elin Hansdottir, Jutta Koether, Javier Téllez, and Mark Titchner, Harry Dodge, Sue de Beer, Stanya Kahn, Brock Enright and Barnaby Furnass.

In our accelerated era of "faster," "better," "farther," "higher," this comprehensive catalogue of the media art of the world-renowned Goetz Collection in Munich offers not only a survey of much of the most important film and video work to have been made over the last 15 years, but also a vision of how our habit of seeing and experiencing the world--in perpetual fast forward mode--has come out of our own cultural acceleration. The works brought together in this 532-page volume are at once an expression of and a reaction to the hyper-speed of our times. They span from the slow-motion images in David Claerbout's still life-like landscape portrait, Ruurlo, Bocurloscheweg 1910, to the rhythmic-dynamic disco tempo of Wolfgang Tillmans's Lights (Body). This superb collection includes videos, video installations and films by Matthew Barney, Olaf Breuning, Tracey Emin, Fischli & Weiss, Rodney Graham, Mona Hatoum, Pierre Huyghe, Isaac Julien, Mike Kelley, Sharon Lockhart, Sarah Morris, Raymond Pettibon, Pipilotti Rist, Anri Sala, Ann-Sofi Sidén, Diana Thater and others.

Venezuelan sculptor Gertrud Luise Goldschmidt (1912-1994), who worked under the pseudonym Gego, was one of the most important representatives of Latin American Geometric Abstractionism. Born in Germany, Goldschmidt became an architect and later immigrated to Caracas in 1939, where she radically altered the nature of modernist sculpture, countering the deductive logic of 1960s abstraction with a fluid conceptualism, reconfiguring "content-less" art into an open-ended process of "thinking the line." The most comprehensive examination of Gego's art published in English to date, this monograph contains deep analyses by scholars from a range of disciplines as well as previously untranslated historical texts, offering new perspectives on Gego's critical relationships to Venezuelan urbanism and kineticism, the New York avant-garde, and the European modernist traditions of Bauhaus and Russian Constructivism. Includes an illustrated chronology and an extensive plate section featuring three decades of sculpture and drawings.

Some of the most significant artistic developments of the 1960s were spearheaded by a single, remarkably small group of colleagues in New York, including Sol LeWitt, Robert Smithson, Mel Bochner, Eva Hesse, Richard Tuttle and a less familiar figure named Ruth Vollmer (1903-1982). Vollmer was a German-born emigre who devoted her work to the cross-fertilization of science, mathematics and the visual arts. Drawing from sources as diverse as Plato's philosophy of mathematics and Bernhard Riemann's non-Euclidean notion of space, she experimented freely with the many permutations of the sphere, from the circle, spiral and pseudosphere to the ephemeral soap bubble. Vollmer's mathematical formalism contributed substantially to the development of a new language of abstraction. Thinking the Line, the first book to offer a compact overview of the artist's oeuvre, includes a selection of sculptures and drawings from the 1960s and 70s alongside essays by art historians, other artists and Vollmer herself.

One-hundred years ago, Einstein solved the elemental mystery of the nature of light: it is both an electromagnetic wave and a stream of particles. It is a form of energy that moves at a speed of 299.792.458 m/s. It is a medium like no other, and nothing has revolutionized and democratized our world in the way that the control of electric light has.

Austrian sculptor Hans Kupelwieser has always sought new materials to use--in the manner of Arte Povera but also in a kind of linguistic approach, punching letter forms into steel to create openings. This overview of the sculptor's current work includes reference works from earlier periods and an exploration of his related photographic oeuvre.
Combining traditional film technologies and computerized military programs for tracking, identifying, and targeting, Jordan Crandall's seven-part video installation Drive depicts movement through means that go miles beyond the conventions of cinema. In Drive, as elsewhere today, bodies and physical movements are no longer objects of representation, but collated and processed computer data from thermal imaging machines and night vision optical devices. Movements are no longer depicted; they are tracked. Drive observes the new human relationships that develop through a structure otherwise associated with a hunter observing his prey. Also included in this volume are Crandall's collected projects and writings.

One of the most important, though largely unknown, exponents of the new painting, Herbert Brandl helped take art in a new direction in the 1980s, not least in response to a concept-based medium that had become academic. This volume documents Brandl's artistic development to date, revealing the strong analytic components of his work, and his ability to "depict depicting."

For the Venice Biennale 2000, the highly respected architects and architectural theorists Hani Rashid and Greg Lynn collaborated with a select group of students from Columbia University and the University of California, Los Angeles, to transform the American Pavilion into a four-week workshop and forum for architectural discourse--a creative laboratory for collective thought. Investigating, producing and reviewing a variety of schemes, the participants presented a foretaste of the ideas and concerns of a new generation of architects. Architectural Laboratories presents the results of this workshop through ten projects focusing on two themes: "The Embryologic House" and "Augmented Architecture." Guest critiques of the student designs are offered by philosopher and cultural critic Mark C. Taylor, ZKM chairman Peter Weibel, and Max Hollein, the United States Commissioner for the biennale.

Erwin Wurm is a sculptor who does not mold clay, chisel stone, or carve wood. Instead, he provides objects such as pullovers, brooms, and boxes to spectators who are then meant to do something with these objects. The resulting situations, in which a person pulls on a pullover, or balances a broom, or puts a box over her head, are grotesque, unstable, and very temporary, and all that remains of them afterwards are photographs and videos of their short life. In dynamic works such as these, which Wurm collectively titles "One Minute Sculptures," the very concept of sculpture is challenged and expanded, continuing a line of inquiry begun with Marcel Duchamp's ready-mades and furthered by Bruce Nauman and Gilbert & George's performative sculpture works. Wurm is similarly concerned with reinvigorating the static, unchanging art object by introducing ideas of process, action, and the living body, but he adds an element of time to the mixture, insisting on spontaneity, brevity, and endless permutations. Fat Survival provides a broad survey of Wurm's oeuvre from the early 1990s to the present.

Hypermental tracks, with unprecedented insight, the unfinished project of surrealism, exploring the visual art of the modern era not in terms of genres, schools, or media, but through the lens of subjectivity. This new catalogue explores how the modernist critique of the subject--exemplified by the art and philosophy of the Surrealists--has continued on through the postwar period and through to the present day. From Merit Oppenheim and Yayoi Kusama in the 1950s and 60s to Cindy Sherman and Matthew Barney in the 90s, we find works that interrogate the construction of the subject, and the body, through sexual difference. From the Pop-era pieces of Richard Hamilton and James Rosenquist to the more recent work of Richard Prince and Barbara Kruger, we find a narrative of the production of desire, one that refers explicitly to the elevated status of the commodity. Hypermental presents work by these artists and many more, juxtaposing their work with that of the original surrealists, and the resulting book is an exceptionally unique history of the most radical trends in the history of 20th century art.
