David Weiss: Works, 1968–1979 illuminates the pioneering Swiss artist’s early work before his well-known collaboration with Peter Fischli. The book features his cartoon imagery, ethereal abstractions and electric cityscapes hidden away until his untimely death, as well as previously unpublished writings, unveiling a young David Weiss developing the irreverent vocabulary that would later define the groundbreaking work of Fischli/Weiss.
Intimate anecdotes of Weiss’ youth told by close friends Urs Lüthi and Hans Ulrich Obrist explore his creative determination and repeated voluntary exiles, while curator Douglas Fogle considers the ecology of influences on his early work, from Robert Walser to Bugs Bunny. The book is published in the Swiss Institute series, which adds retrospective context (essays, artist portfolios, archival materials and other documentation) to exhibitions at Swiss Institute in New York.

Published by Blum & Poe. Text by Douglas Fogle, Jonathan Lethem.
Published on the occasion of his 2013 exhibition at Blum & Poe, this is the first monograph on Los Angeles–based multimedia artist Julian Hoeber (born 1974). Filtering the aesthetics of Minimalism, Op art and the Light and Space movement through a pop-cultural lens, Hoeber’s paintings and sculptures seek irrationality within rational systems, toying with space and perception, and examining how consciousness is affected under varying physical circumstances. As evidenced in his paintings, sculpture and installations, Hoeber displaces distinctions between high and low, conceptual and formal, and art and craft. Beautifully illustrated with 70 images of current and past works, this volume includes a checklist of the exhibition, and a complete bibliography, extensively documenting Hoeber’s past and current work. The book also includes new essays by Douglas Fogle and Jonathan Lethem written especially for this volume.
Mark Grotjahn's (born 1968) ongoing Butterfly series--one of several investigations into the natural world in Grotjahn's oeuvre--focuses on perspectival techniques used since the Renaissance, such as dual and multiple vanishing points, to create the illusion of depth on a two-dimensional surface. Though at first the Butterfly paintings may appear entirely formal and graphic (alluding to modernist painting from Russian Constructivism to Op art), the raylike "butterfly wings" are often layered over under-paintings, giving them texture and tonal depth. This volume, published to accompany the first exhibition of Grotjahn's butterfly paintings at Blum & Poe in New York, not only collects these arresting compositions, but also delves into the artistic contexts involved, in an essay by Douglas Fogle that discusses the history of the Butterfly works since their conception in the early 2000s.
Published by Whitechapel Gallery. Edited and with interview by Achim Borchardt-Hume. Foreword by Iwona Blazwick. Text by Douglas Fogle.
This publication documents Italian artist Giuseppe Penone’s sculpture “Spazio di Luce” (“Space of Light”), installed at the Whitechapel Gallery in London. “Spazio di Luce” is a bronze cast of the thick layer of wax surrounding a 40-foot-tall larch, with a radiant goldleaf interior that spreads dramatically across the columned gallery. The work references and augments a 1969 work of Penone’s titled “All the Years of the Tree plus One,” for which he also cast a tree in wax. Created in close collaboration with the artist, this volume brings together previously unpublished drawings, photographs of historic actions and recent sculptures and a selection of the artist’s own writings. It also includes an interview between Achim Borchardt-Hume and the artist and an essay by art critic and scholar Douglas Fogle focusing on Penone’s work with trees, alongside color documentation of the exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery.

Matthew Monahan (born 1972) adorns his precariously assembled figurative sculptures with wax, glitter and spray paint to achieve effects of aged bronze, portraying his subjects as loose gatherings of worn parts that might fly apart at any moment. This is his first monograph.

Since 1986, Dutch artist Mark Manders (born 1968) has been developing an ongoing project titled Self-Portrait as a Building. Taking the form of sculptures, installations, drawings and projections, these works map Manders' artistic persona through the conceptual model of a built edifice, in the fashion of the Renaissance memory theater. Inspired by writings on this subject and by other literature, Manders' earliest works in this project were primarily written, but over time, Manders found ways to deploy everyday three-dimensional objects--epoxy figures, animals, teabags, pencils, household furniture--to build a portrait of his own mind as an architectural space. As the artist explains, "this imaginary building, being composed of discrete objects, can shrink or expand at any moment. In this building, all words created by mankind are on hand." This publication accompanies the first North American touring exhibition of Manders' work.

Surfaces, Depths is a representative selection of Thomas Ruff's works, over a period that already spans about 25 years, with projects ranging from portraits and interiors to telescope and space probe pictures and "nightsight" photography. Ruff incorporates an extremely wide range of everyday subjects into his experiments--people, architecture, planets, the Internet--and subjects them to all forms of camera technology, so that his work often seems to embody the history of the art as it develops. Ruff has a particular fascination with photographic techniques that appear to erase or leave out the artist's hand, techniques often designed for military or scientific purposes. In a recent series titled Zycles, for example, Ruff constructs his images with the help of mathematical formulas and computer technology, twisting two-dimensional surfaces into the three-dimensional space of vector graphics. Surfaces and Depths focuses on ten of Ruff's total of 18 projects to address this particular ongoing preoccupation with artistic detachment, and the polarities of surface and depth vision in the construction of images. In doing so, it makes the broadest assessment to date of the oeuvre of this tireless innovator.

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.

Dutch artist Mark Manders, born in 1968, has been devising sculptural installations since the late 1980s and exhibiting them as a fragmented self-portrait in the form of imaginary rooms. A veteran of solo exhibitions at such respected American venues as The Drawing Center in New York, the Berkeley Art Museum and The Art Institute of Chicago, he has established himself as one of the most distinctive and independent artists on today’s international sculpture scene. Beginning with the exemplary piece "Self-Portrait as a Building," created in 1986, Manders’ entire oeuvre can be understood as a large-scale attempt to translate his own existence and development into wordless, associative memory spaces. Chimneys, brick walls, oversized model rats, tables, chairs, newspapers and a plethora of small, personal objects are tweaked in scale and amassed as “still lives with broken moments.” This is the most significant appraisal of his work to date.

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.

Known for his colorful paintings that transmute source imagery into geometric near-abstractions, Thomas Scheibitz, one of the hottest young German artists working in Berlin, here presents painted sculptures that explore a dynamic range of form, texture and colors. Jutting from the walls, hanging from the ceiling, or sitting on the floor, the works distill figural forms to an angular essence.

Published by Walker Art Center. Introduction by Douglas Fogle.
Since the late 1980s, Catherine Opie's interest in the motif of the visual road trip has resulted in photographs that sumultaneously document and question the self-constructed identities of the people and places that characterize America. From the freeways of Los Angeles to the downtown of St. Louis and the Wall Street district of New York, Opie now turns her camera to the skyways and icehouses of the Twin Cities. The culmination of a year-long commission from the Walker Art Center, Skyways and Icehouses provides a meditative portrait of a locale, at once a straight-forward documentation and an inquiring social psycho-geography, an exploration of those symbolic architectures often taken for granted. Personal anecdotes, memories, and stories fron Minnesota residents animate Opie's haunting landscapes.
