Book Description
Now in Paperback~Jenny Holzer gained widespread recognition when texts from her Truisms series appeared on a vast electronic advertising board overlooking Times Square. Throughout her career, Holzer has intrigued audiences by placing her provocative messages in unexpected contexts, including posters, metal plaques, stone benches, electronic signs, television spots and Web sites. Her canny melding of the mediums of mass culture with an unadorned, emphatic language is perfectly attuned to an age of advertising slogans, headlines and sound bites. Yet despite the very public nature of much of her work, Holzer has also created more intimate pieces for display in galleries and museums. Her stunning installation at the 1990 Venice Biennale was awarded first prize and brought the artist international acclaim, proving that...

Jenny Holzer: Truth before Power
Jenny Holzer

November 2004
Hardcover

Book Description
The politics of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East is the subject of Truth Before Power, Jenny Holzer's recent Kunsthaus Bregenz project. The complicated dialectic of decision-making and public debate, as it has unfolded through the presidencies of Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, and George W. Bush, is explored in texts devoted to such issues as the international trade in arms and oil, the war on terrorism, 9/11, the FBI and CIA, and Congress's oversight of the intelligence community. For the most part, the installation's text has been taken verbatim from U.S. government documents--many of which were classified at the time they were written. Under the landmark Freedom of Information Act passed in 1966, all are now public record, though some remain heavily redacted. This illustrated...

Book Description
ABUSE OF POWER COMES AS NO SURPRISE MURDER HAS ITS SEXUAL SIDE PEOPLE WON'T BEHAVE IF THEY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE SLOPPY THINKING GETS WORSE OVER TIME Jenny Holzer's Truisms, the series of texts from which these phrases derive, are just one of the sources for the jolting words that the artist projects across monumental manmade and natural structures from Buenos Aires to Berlin. Beginning in the late 70s, Holzer has posted her provocative texts around the urban environment via a range of media--first on simple xeroxed posters, later on stickers, T-shirts, postcards, bronze plaques, and baseball caps. In the 80s, she moved on to the mass formats of large-scale LED screens in airports and sports stadiums. In her most recent projects, she has gone larger still, adopting xenon spotlight technology to project printed messages...

Understanding Installation Art: From Duchamp to Holzer
Mark Rosenthal

September 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This provocative and highly original examination of installation art demystifies and deconstructs the artistic medium most likely to induce the question, But is it Art? When we think of installation art we imagine enormous, perhaps bewildering, multi-media environments. But the world’s earliest known installation projects were created millennia ago on the walls of caves in Lascaux, France. Although the genre has been evolving ever since, its primary impulse—a dialogue between artist and space—remains the same. In Understanding Installation Art, Mark Rosenthal offers an historical interpretation and concise critical analyses that will help deepen readers’ appreciation of this often confusing medium. Citing examples as diverse as the Sistine Chapel, Colonial Williamsburg, Robert Smithson’s...

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This volume looks at how young architects define their position in Germany today. Faced increasingly with projects which demand interdisciplinary collaboration with artists, designers and architecture theoreticians, over 50 architects in Germany analyse their role, using projects to illustrate the new approaches which are required.

Conceived by the "Young Architects" of the Association of German Architects, this book provides stimulating insight into the work and thoughts of young architects in contemporary Germany. They touch upon a wide range of topics from architectural policy, pragmatic considerations about the everyday work life, to analyses of work conditions, and their views are commented on in interviews with the renowned authors Jenny Holzer, Boris Groys, and Bruno Reichlin.
