Artforum, Carlos Basualdo, December 2000
A brilliant new chapter in her continuing investigation of medium specificity.

Book Description
Exploring the nature of the aesthetic medium has been at the heart of much of modern art. For exponents of high modernism, the essence of each medium lay inherently in its own particular material properties. Accordingly, the import of painting was its "flatness," as exemplified by the monochrome canvas. But some artists rejected this description as inadequate. Citing the examples of film, television, and video, they understood and articulated the medium as a complex structure of technical supports and layered conventions distinct from physical properties. Here, Rosalind Krauss positions the work of Marcel Broodthaers within this alternative narrative....


Marcel Broodthaers: This Is a Pipe: Ceci Est Une Pipe,Dies Ist Eine Pfeife
Maria Gilissen

Hardcover

Book Description
"This pipe stands at the beginning of my adventure. . ." --Marcel Broodthaers. This unpublished Marcel Broodthaers project was conceived in 1970 in reaction to the 1968 publication of the now famous Michel Foucault essay "This is not a pipe." The Magritte painting "Ceci n'est pas une pipe," which sparked this particular semiotic run-around, was of paramount importance to Broodthaers. Reconstituted through fragments recovered from the original project, which Broodthaers aborted in 1972, this book returns to the core of Broodthaers' complex artistic questioning and its entanglements with post-structuralist discourse. Edited by Maria Gilissen. 8.25 x 11 in. 7 color, 12 b/w illustrations English/French/German

Book Description
In 1955, the first Documenta was held in the provincial town of Kassel, Germany, alongside the National Garden Festival. No one imagined back then that the exhibition, held every five years, would develop into the world's most important forum for contemporary art. Although the name Documenta stands for an all-encompassing vision, each of the 11 exhibitions to date has been unique, with its own aims and atmosphere. The history of Documenta reflects the past half century's diverse artistic and curatorial approaches, philosophies, and forms of presentation, as well as a broad array of political and social currents. This two-volume publication looks into that history and the phenomenon of Documenta in several ways. Volume 1 contains a richly illustrated review of 50 years of art in Kassel and the artworks that made...

Behind the Facts: Interfunktionen 1968-1975

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Interfunktionen, an art journal which published 12 issues between 1968 and 1975 in Cologne, was founded in 1968 as a form of protest by artists who had no affinity with the critical lines that were redrawn at Documenta that year. The review was of considerable importance as a vehicle for propagating pro-European ideas and as a union between artists in Europe and the United States, irrespective of the predominating movements of the time. It contained both theoretical and practical contributions, with the intervention of creators who defined and illustrated their artistic strategies. Directly linked to the most prominent figures in the Düsseldorf Kunstacademie, such as Joseph Beuys, Jorg Immendorf, and Sigmar Polke, it also boasted the involvement of the most spirited and reflexive artists of the times, from Vito...

By the end of the 1960s a revolution had taken place in the perception and practice of art in Europe and North America.

Book Description
These thought-provoking essays from the first laureate of the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architectureís Prize for Art Criticism consider the central role of publicity as both a subject of and a power in contemporary art, and ask whether artists could create a publicity opposed to the mass media. How open are such alternatives? Would art that attempts to develop its own counter-publicity become a secret society? Lutticken, who teaches at the University of Amsterdam and stokes the media machine himself by writing regularly for Artforum, the New Left Review and Afterimage, considers the work of artists including Stan Douglas, Andrea Fraser, Tino Sehgal, Jeff Wall, Marcel Broodthaers, Andy Warhol, Georges Bataille and Guy Debord. To mark the publication of this, his first book, debates are...
