André Cadere
Peinture sans fin


Now out of print, this wonderful catalogue was published to accompany a retrospective exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (October 2007 –January 2008) of the work of André Cadere (1934 – 1978).  It is one of the finest monographs on Cadere’s career.
Cadere, who lived in Paris from 1971 belongs – alongside Daniel Buren, Niele Toroni and François Morellet – to the most important protagonists of French Minimal and Concept Art of the 1970s.

His work combines a reduced formal sculptural language with a conceptual approach that questions the workings of the art system – a combination which has become of major importance to a younger generation of artists in recent years. His premature death was preceded by an intense albeit short working period of about eight years. His consistent refusal to bow to the rules of the art market might explain why his work has been underestimated to this day.

André Cadere
Documenting Cadere, 1972–1978


Compiled and edited by curator and art historian Lynda Morris, this title offers an original and highly personal perspective on Cadere’s place in the Conceptual Art world of the 1970s, and the continuing relevance of his ideas around ‘space and politics’.

At the centre of the publication is Morris’ chronology of Cadere’s exhibitions, appearances, walks and lectures during the last six years of his life.

This major piece of research shifts the focus away from the ‘round bars of wood’ as objects, and instead focuses on the meaning contained in the printed documents (gallery invitations, notices of lectures, debates and mailings) that record Cadere’s actions, movements and social relationships.

These archival documents come predominantly from two sources – the archive of Lynda Morris and the Herbert Collection, Ghent.

The publication contains new translations of lectures given by Cadere (Leuven, 1974), as well as reproducing an interview with the artist.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Documenting Cadere, 1972–1978 at Modern Art Oxford; Mu.ZEE, Ostend, and Artists Space, New York, in 2012–13.

Adorno
The Possibility of the Impossible (Vol. I and II set!)

 

Set of both long out-of-print volumes!

VOL. I
Edited by Michael Hirsch, Vanessa Joan Müller, Nicolaus Schafhausen
Texts by Norbert Bolz, Peter Bürger, Alex Demirovic, Diedrich Diederichsen, Alexander García Düttmann, Michael Hirsch, Christoph Menke, Willem van Reijen, Martin Seel

The first volume of Adorno. The Possibility of the Impossible comprises theoretical essays which investigate the relevance of Adorno’s critical theory for the present. The tight connection between individual observations in aesthetics and cultural criticism, on the one hand, and the large speculations of social theory and the history of philosophy, on the other, that is found in Adorno’s own work is taken as a point of departure in many passages. The difference – disparity, even – in the varied attitudes toward the content of Adorno’s theory is evident. Seen from the perspective of the present, this multiple rereading is directed at fragments of a thought that has preserved its radicality even when abstracted from its immediate historical context. Both publications – Adorno. The Impossibility of the Impossible Vol. I and Vol. II – accompany an exhibition at the Frankfurter Kunstverein on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Theodor W. Adorno.

VOL. II

Edited by Michael Hirsch, Vanessa Joan Müller, Nicolaus Schafhausen
Texts by Isabelle Graw and Georg Schöllhammer

Volume II documents the exhibition which looks at the connection between contemporary art and Adorno’s writings, with the visual arts becoming a central platform for comparison to Adorno’s main subjects. The publication illustrates the works exhibited and discusses the relationship between autonomy and sovereignty. Artists included are Carl Andre, Samuel Beckett, Martin Boyce, André Cadere, Martin Creed, Thomas Demand, Jason Dodge, Maria Eichhorn, Peter Friedl, Isa Genzken, Liam Gillick, Henrik Plenge Jacobsen, Euan McDonald, John Massey, Jonathan Monk, Sarah Morris, Bruce Nauman, Mathias Poledna, Stephen Prina, Florian Pumhösl, Ad Reinhardt, Gerhard Richter, Markus Schinwald, Andreas Slominski, Lawrence Weiner, Christopher Williams, Cerith Wyn Evans.
