Alicja Kwade. The Void of the Moment in Motion

With her installation “Die bewegte Leere des Moments” (The Void of the Moment in Motion), Alicja Kwade opens up a space of its own for the viewer, a space that offers possibilities for new perspectives and considerations, increases the viewer’s powers of concentration, and sharpens all his senses. What do time, motion, and space mean for the individual? To what extent do scientific findings provide orientation and support in this specific constellation?

Poetry of the Metropolis: The Affichistes

Whether early Pop artists, trailblazers of Street Art, or protagonists of a “natural poetry” of reality: in the 1950s, the “Affichistes” came forward with a complete new concept of the panel painting. On their rambles through the streets of postwar Paris, they collected fragments of ubiquitous, overlayered, often weathered and tattered posters and elevated the world of everyday urban life itself to the status of a painting. Their access to reality, as subversive as it was poetic, made them pioneers of a “New Realism”. Represented artists: François Dufrêne, Raymond Hains, Jacques Villeglé, as well as Mimmo Rotella and Wolf Vostell.

Helene Schjerfbeck

ENGLISH EDITION IS SOLD OUT!

Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946) is Finland’s most prominent female artist. Her work is of epoch-making significance. Recognition for Schjerfbeck’s portraiture is ubiquitous throughout Scandinavia – with her likeness even reproduced on the obverse side of the Finnish two-euro coin. The artist is honoured as a national icon. This monograph presents an overview of Schjerfbeck’s oeuvre from its beginnings in realism in the 1880s to the late, strongly abstract self-portraits of the 1940s.

Paparazzi! Photographers, Stars and Artists.

The publication focuses the fascination with star photography and reflect its influence on the visual arts and fashion photography. It features “icons” of paparazzi photography that have been permanently etched on our visual memory, including Jackie Kennedy-Onassis during an seemingly casual walk through Manhattan, Lady Di fleeing from a frenzy of flashing cameras, or the younger “favorites” of paparazzi such as Paris Hilton or Britney Spears. Besides works by the most well-known representatives of paparazzi photography, such as Ron Galella, Pascal Rostain, Bruno Mouron, or Tazio Secchiaroli, positions by artists such as Cindy Sherman, Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol, Barbara Kruger, Paul McCarthy, and Richard Avedon are introduced, who have critically examined and sounded out the specific characteristics of the paparazzi aesthetic. The book tells stories from 50 years of paparazzi photography and sets it sights on the paparazzo himself – focuses on a profession that is admired and feared in equal measure and which secures its existence for the most part by means of secretly tracking and stalking famous celebrities and has made the tabloid press one of the highest-selling areas in the press sector – always on the scout and with the goal of publishing exclusive pictures of the unsuspected, the ostensibly confidential, and the personal. In the process, the complex relationships and dependencies are analyzed that occasionally develop between stars and the photographer.
