First monograph dedicated to Pierre Leguillon's Museum of Mistakes: a
traveling exhibition gathering a collection of mass culture artifacts and
craft objects, questioning with humor and subversivity the mechanisms of
today's visual culture.
This issue of Flash Art explores a sort of archeology of images, aiming to reflect on issues of appropriation and authenticity in their most contemporaneous sense, whereby any original or preexisting artwork, image, or product can be invested with a multiplicity of meanings.
This publication reflects upon the exhibition of Stefan Brüggemann's nihilist statements read, sung, and screamed by Punk icon Iggy Pop, sculpting aurally the spaces of a seemingly empty gallery covered in densely painted black paneling paintings.
A palimpsest reconstruction of French Jesuit missionary Alexandre de Rhodes's (1591–1660) Rhodes of Viet Nam: The Travels and Missions of Father Alexandre de Rhodes in China and Other Kingdoms of the Orient, originally published in 1653 (artists' book).
This publication provides an in-depth exploration of the artists joint project Olt, focusing on a 1967 promotional campaign by the French oil company Elf. The book highlights Mosset and Sauvage's common interest in graphic design and roadside art, and features a text by Jill Gasparina on the circle as a symbol of visual modernity, as well as an interview with the two artists.
Catalogue dedicated to
contemporary artists whose production concentrate on the reuse of existing images. This publication investigates the various practices of these iconographer artists through documentation, illustrations, essays, and interviews (with Haris Epaminonda, Wade Guyton, Camille Henrot, Thomas Hirschhorn, Jonathan Monk, Linder Sterling…).
A companion to his previous book, Colour in Contextual Play, Joseph Kosuth's Neon in Contextual Play continues the artist's investigation of the interplay between language and reality, words and objects, color and light. Within these pairings, early neon works by Kosuth interact with those by Arte Povera artists who also used the industrial medium.
A collection of textual and visual essays stemming from a series of lecture-performances in which artists and curators experimented with various strategies of reprise in the fields of publishing, visual arts, animation, new technologies and the law.
Designed by the founder of Conceptual Art, this elegant and precious artist's book—and exhibition catalogue—serves as a visual analysis of the conceptual structures that interrogate the nature of color, form, space, and time, where the works and writings of Post-war artists such as Castellani, Fontana, Manzoni, and Klein, converse with Kosuth's statements, and the theoretical as well as personal account of curator Cornelia Lauf.
For her show at Mamco, the French artist borrowed from the museum collections to reinterpret a series of artworks by Imi Knoebel, Steven Parrino, Frank Stella, John M. Armleder, Luciano Fabro, Robert Filliou, and Christian Robert-Tissot. Both a catalogue and an artist's book, this publication replays the exhibition much like a snapshot collection.
This catalogue traces the trajectory of Warhol's influence on the work of Wool and Guyton. The innovative print processes deployed by the artists operate as conceptual fibers unifying the diversity of paintings oscillating between abstraction and representation. With an essay by Glenn O'Brien.
A compilation of restaurants receipts collected between Rome and Berlin on which the British conceptual artist reproduced images of works by other artists (Luciano Fabro, Donald Judd, Andy Warhol, Jenny Holzer, André Cadere, Maurizio Cattelan…). Far from being innocent, this appropriationist gesture reflects on the art world economics while displaying a panorama of art history, stretching from the 1960s to the present day.
L'Incroyable is a monographic magazine dedicated to an artist's teenage years and his cultural background. This second issue focuses on Jim Shaw's Californian youth between the late 1950s and the beginning of the 1970s.
