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?

Artists and Prophets. A Secret History of Modern Art 1872–1972

Egon Schiele saw himself as a visionary and prophetic artist, František Kupka forged an abstract style of painting infused with spiritist principles, Joseph Beuys called for a revolution under the rubric of “social sculpture,” and Friedensreich Hundertwasser was an ecological crusader whose spiral paintings were holistic in essence. These pioneering artistic attitudes and developments would have not come about without contact with several so-called ‘prophets’. Some of these were artist-naturists, others were modern-day Christs, while still others saw themselves as social revolutionaries of a kind. Their relevance for modern art remains a largely untold story. Today, their names—Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach, Gusto Gräser, Gustav Nagel, as well as Friedrich Muck-Lamberty and Ludwig Christian Haeusser—have almost been forgotten. During their lifetime, however, they were widely known among a broad-based public and in avant-garde circles. Artists and intellectuals also admired them, albeit often behind closed doors. Illustrated works by such artists as František Kupka, Egon Schiele, Johannes Baader, Heinrich Vogeler, Friedrich Schröder-Sonnenstern, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Joseph Beuys, and Jörg Immendorff as well as a variety of documentation materials. The publication both reveals causalities and establishes unexpected connections. It also embeds the prophets and the artistic avant-garde in a wide-ranging social historical context.

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.
