Esprit Montmartre

The Montmartre, however, was considered a microcosm for artistic self-perception that first found literary expression in Henry Murger’s novel Scènes de la vie de Bohème (1847–1849). The neighborhood soon attracted numerous artists who deliberately chose a bohemian life in impoverished circumstances on the margins of society – even though they often came from wealthy homes. Their new identity as voluntarily-involuntary outsiders was mirrored especially realistically and impressively in their art. The publication – by viewing the bohemian world on Montmartre from an art-sociological perspective and taking the social and historical contexts into account – clearly reveals how remarkably the myth and legend of the quarter differed from its reality. ‘Esprit Montmartre’ shows the true life of its inhabitants far from the usual clichés. The artists’ works are moving, sensual, and rousing, and their subjects and pictorial ideas, materials, and stylistic solutions essentially anticipated the artistic developments of Modernism.

Tobias Rehberger. Home and Away and Outside

Tobias Rehberger (*1966) is internationally renowned for his trenchant and witty works. Numerous awards and exhibitions honor the artist whose complex oeuvre occupies an outstanding position within today’s art production. Rehbergerʼs work cannot be categorized as associated with a special medium or dedicated to a certain subject. Relying on a variety of media rather, the artist has created sculptures, installations, posters, and paintings and thus dealt with a wide range of themes spanning from optical delusions and identity games to issues of transience. It is often the genesis of a work his art focuses on: the artist frequently falls back on his own memories, draws inspiration from outdated techniques of production, or provokes his viewers by furnishing his works with alleged flaws or lending his works the appearance of copies when viewed for the first time. Many works are results of a joint authorship, works for which Tobias Rehberger relies on others’ information and ideas.

Roni Horn. Portrait of an Image

The photographic series “Portrait of an Image (with Isabelle Huppert)” is based on a collaboration between Horn and the French film and stage actress Isabelle Huppert. Together they selected earlier roles Huppert had played that the actress then performed again for the camera. For these photographs, Huppert visualized her repertoire solely on the basis of her memory, without the aid of the scripts or the films themselves.
Setting out from the Schirn, Horn places a selection of these motifs in public space in a way that does not reveal that they are part of her work or an artistic project: no mention is made either of the artist or the exhibiting institution, and there is no title that would indicate that it is a work of art. Sixteen motifs appear in places in Frankfurt’s urban space in which advertising is usually displayed—advertising that in our society for the most part relies on the impact of faces. However, in Horn’s work the portraits are not furnished with commentary and therefore raise questions, for example how and whether we can read the face we are looking at even without a prescribed context.

Roni Horn. Portrait of an Image
Edited by Kristin Schrader and Max Hollein.
Foreword by Max Hollein, essay by Kristin Schrader, as well as a letter by Roni Horn.

Philip Guston. Late Works

The bold and extraordinary oeuvre of the American painter Philip Guston (1913–1980) was one of the most widely discussed of his time. He was the first to return figuration to postwar American painting, was innovative in his combination of “high art” with images from popular culture, and is today celebrated as the pioneer of postmodern, figurative painting. On the occasion of the artist’s 100th birthday, this publication focuses on late works by Philip Guston as a milestone of American painting.
