Thomas Hirschhorn: The Bijlmer Spinoza-FestivalThomas Hirschhorn: The Bijlmer Spinoza-Festival

The Ambassador's Diary

Published by Hatje Cantz.
By Vittoria Martini. Text by Claire Bishop, Thomas Hirschhorn, Lisa Lee, Mignon Nixon, Marcus Steinweg.

The Bijlmer Spinoza-Festival is a sculptural event space created by Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn (born 1957) in a peripheral borough of Amsterdam known as the Bijlmer in 2009. The occasion follows his custom of creating provisional spaces and monuments for philosophers and writers such as Walser and Gramsci.
This book recounts the event through the eyes of its “ambassador,” art historian Vittoria Martini, who was invited by the artist to be an eyewitness to the existence of this “precarious” work. Hirschhorn sees the term “precarious” as positive and creative—a means of asserting the importance of the moment and of the place, of asserting the here and now.
Guiding readers through her experience of the Bijlmer Spinoza-Festival, Martini’s commentary provides a profound understanding of how a work that no longer exists physically can live on in the mind.

Thomas Hirschhorn: MapsThomas Hirschhorn: Maps

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Clément Dirié, Julie Enckell Julliard. Text by Thomas Hirschhorn, Julie Enckell Julliard, Marcus Steinweg.

Bringing together 15 Maps realized between 2003 and 2016 by Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn (born 1957), this book focuses on this particular aspect of his practice that could be seen as a matrix to understand his unique position within the art world and visual culture. As he explains: “With my Maps, I want to make clear I have a goal, that I am also a maker, and not only a thinker.” Edited by Julie Enckell Julliard, the publication reproduces each Map in detail, showing their combination of printed matter, text fragments, artist's comments and collaged press images. Acting as an archive of projects, Hirschhorn's Maps are simultaneously tools to clarify his thinking, memorials to inspirational figures, manifestos about topics such as “Friendship Bewtween Art and Philosophy,” as well as a way to resist. Published all together, they provide a remarkable insight into the uncompromising art Hirschhorn has been building consistently for 30 years.

Thomas Hirschhorn: Gramsci MonumentThomas Hirschhorn: Gramsci Monument

Published by Walther König, Köln/DIA.

In 2013, Dia Art Foundation commissioned Thomas Hirschhorn to build Gramsci Monument, an overwhelming, complex and excessive outdoor sculpture that measured 8,000 square feet and was located on the grounds of Forest Houses, a New York City Housing Authority development in the Bronx, New York. On display for 77 days, with daily and weekly events organized by the artist, Gramsci Monument concluded Hirschhorn's series of "monuments" dedicated to philosophers, which began in 1999. Grounded in the love of Antonio Gramsci's work and life, specifically his fundamental concept of the "organic intellectual," this publication takes the form of a manual that details the complexity of creating an art work in public space, bringing together contemporary scholarship alongside accounts from residents, participants and visitors.
