This collection of more than thirty texts, which were originally published between 1790 and the present day, explores man’s rich relationship with material things. Devised largely in response to the gradual breakdown of the divide between art and design that began over a century ago, this book sheds light on the ways that the concept of the thing as idea has been considered over time. Writers from different fields explore how things interact with materials, structures, and production processes while defining and registering the intangible qualities of the material world. Each author considers the different relationships between the context of a thing and its thingness, describing the ways in which things and ideas intersect.

The Anti-Museum : An Anthology
Mathieu Copeland, Balthazar Lovay (Eds.)

The museum is constantly a target for criticism, whether it comes from artists, thinkers, curators, or even the public. From the avant-gardes of the twentieth century up until our contemporary era, the museum’s suspect position has generated countless gestures, iconoclastic actions, scathing attacks, utopias, and alternative exhibition spaces. For the first time, this anthology is devoted to the anti-museum, through anti-art, the anti-artist, anti-exhibition, as well as anti-architecture, anti-philosophy, anti-religion, anti-cinema and anti-music. This notion – unpatented but regularly reappropriated – traces the erratic, fractured, and sometimes paradoxical counter-history of the contestation of artistic institutions. From the first anti-exhibition to the first catalog retracing the history of “Closed Exhibitions,” from Dada to Noise music, from “Everything is Art” to NO!art, the Japanese avant-gardes to Lettrist cinema, and not forgetting such major protest figures as Gustav Metzger, Henry Flynt, Graciela Carnevale, and Lydia Lunch, The Anti-Museum sketches a polyphonic panorama where negation is accompanied by a powerful breath of life.

Edited by Mathieu Copeland and Balthazar Lovay.

Seth Siegelaub
Beyond Conceptual Art

Seth Siegelaub (1941–2013) is best known for his decisive role in the emergence and establishment of Conceptual Art in the late 1960s.

This extensively researched publication documents the first exhibition about his life and work, which reassess his role as one of the distinctive characters in twentieth-century exhibition-making, while recognizing his atypical, inquisitive, and free-spirited genius.

Siegelaub was also a gallerist, independent curator, publisher, researcher, archivist, collector, and bibliographer. Often credited as the ‘Father of Conceptual Art’, he was (and remains) a seminal influence on curators, artists, and cultural thinkers, internationally and in Amsterdam, where he settled in the 1990s.

With revolutionary projects such as the Xerox Book, he set the blueprint for the presentation and dissemination of conceptual practices. In the process, he redefined the exhibition space, which could now be a book, a poster, an announcement, or reality at large.

Siegelaub’s radical reassessment of the conditions of art resonated deeply with the iconoclastic views of his contemporaries Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Daniel Buren, Jan Dibbets, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner, among others, with whom he developed close working relationships.

Texts by Beatrix Ruf, Leontine Coelewij , Sara Martinetti and more.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Seth Siegelaub: Beyond Conceptual Art at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 12 December 2015 – 17 April 2016.

Cosima Von Bonin
HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT

HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT, includes more than 100 works by Cosima von Bonin, ranging from her earliest to completely new works.

This retrospective exhibition also shows how von Bonin’s work has moved more and more in the direction of installations that increasingly come to take possession of the space they are placed in.

Another typical feature of her work is a complex network of relations between the fine arts and music that she has established, including longstanding colleagues and friends in her exhibition projects.

At mumok Vienna, Tocotronic and Phantom Ghost accompany the exhibition with concerts, and two further new formations from von Bonin’s circle of friends and acquaintances, The 3 Ypsilons and The Ypsilon Five, perform at the exhibition. The mumok museum facade gains a new balcony for this exhibition, with a figure standing on it and retching.

Appearances by Isa Genzken, Mike Kelley, Carl Andre, Martin Kippenberger, Christophe Verfaille, Okka-Esther Hungerbühler, Cady Noland, Helmut Baar, Colin de Land, Paul Thek, Michael Krebber…

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Cosima von Bonin: HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT at mumok, Vienna, 4 October 2014 – 18 January 2015.
