Broken Music is an essential guide and discography for recordings and audio works by visual artists, originally published in 1989 and edited by Ursula Block (founder of Gelbe Musik in Berlin) and Michael Glasmeier. Records chosen for the publication revolved around four criteria: record covers created as original work by visual artists; record or sound producing objects (sculptures); books and publications that contain a record or recorded media object; and records or recorded media that have sound by visual artists. Hundreds of works are documented by artists such as Vito Acconci, albrecht d., Joseph Beuys, Laurie Anderson, Guillaume Apollinaire, Karel Appel, Antonin Artaud, John Baldessari, Hugo Ball, Harry Bertoia, William S. Burroughs, John Cage, Henri Chopin, Henning Christiansen, William Copley, Philip Corner, Merce Cunningham, Hanne Darboven, Jim Dine, Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, Fischli/Weiss, R.

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40yearsvideoart.de conservation project, which has sought to combat the physical fragility and limited life span of outdated formats by tracing lost video works of the 1960s and 1970s.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.

Born of necessity in 1961, fathered by George Maciunas and mothered by the rejection of high art and commerical values, the anti-art Fluxus movement is here recorded with encyclopedic thoroughness. With historical essays by Fluxus artists including George Brecht, Robert Filliou, Dick Higgins, Allan Kaprow, Per Kirkeby, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik and Maciunas, and critical passages by Arthur Danto, Joan Rothfuss, and others, this book questions what it asks, in true Fluxus fashion.

Perhaps no single technology has defined the postwar world as much as the automobile. The automobile has shaped our physical landscape--our personal, geographical and atmospheric space--as well as our mental world. Since the 1960s, artist Wolf Vostell has been addressing the automobile--as design object, as modern icon, and as an invention capable of shaping and altering the world around it--in ''auto-sculptures'' and performances. Vostell--Automobile documents Vostell's career over the past 40 years, from his early, Pop-influenced work, to his auto-sculptures, auto-happenings and auto-installations, as well as object-pictures like Zyklus Mania and his Project for a new flag for the German Republic, a proposal for a new flag that would reflect the autmobilization and mechanization of modern life.
