One essential characteristic of textiles is their richly intertextual nature. Their contemporary appeal and historicity derive from their place in the history of art and culture as well as in the history of media, society, and technology. Representing traditions found in both applied and fine arts, textiles hover between formalism and functionalism; as objects and techniques, they mediate between relations to the self and relations to the world, between affect-driven and knowledge-driven processes of appropriation. Functionally versatile—as objects of utility and media of an abstract (visual) language—textiles read as the fulcrum of an ensemble of activities, and illustrate specific entanglements that, since the beginning of modernity, have transformed the relations between subject and object, the material and the immaterial, artistic and artisanal labor, and different cultures.

This publication examines the referential and analytical qualities of textiles through both contemporary and historical works. The contributions in this book reflect on the complex interplay between the various functions and connotations of textiles—such as the emphasis on their tactile qualities or the artistic value attributed to them—and the attendant conflicts and antagonisms that articulate relations of power and value and of the interaction of artistic processes with their overarching contexts.

Textiles: Open Letter stems from an exhibition at the Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, and a research project (2010–14) initiated by Rike Frank and Grant Watson.

Florian Pumhösl – Räumliche Sequenz / Spatial Sequence
Works in Exhibitions 1993 — 2012


The Florian Pumhösl publication presents not just the new series of works on show at the Kunsthaus Bregenz, it also catalogues all of his exhibitions since 1993. For Pumhösl, born 1971 in Vienna, the exhibition is his most important medium. The publication presents his works chronologically in the context of their respective exhibitions, with illustrations, dates, and in part explanatory texts on individual works. The American art historian Juli Carson and Berlin-based André Rottmann, both of whom have followed Pumhösl’s creative work for many years, engage knowledgeably in their essays with his oeuvre, his theoretical considerations, formal vocabulary, and his working techniques. Yilmaz Dziewior’s contribution confines itself to the Bregenz exhibition and its conceptual background.

Florian Pumhösl
6 7 8

Florian Pumhösl’s latest production focuses on abstract films and paintings and their interaction with the surrounding space.

6 7 8 is made up of three new pieces: In his picture cycle Diminution, Pumhösl is concerned with the possibilities of portraits, the representation of individual characteristics and profiles.

The film installation Expressive Rhythm refers to Alexander Rodchenko’s painting of the same name from 1942/43.

Dance notations are the theme of the second film project Tract, an abstract animation.

Starting from the installation and series of glass paintings entitled Modernology, this catalogue presents Pumhösl’s ongoing involvement reflecting and integrating motifs, issues and materials of early non-western avant-gardes.

While Sabeth Muchmann and Jan Verwoert are discussing Pumhösl’s works and strategies from two different perspectives, Thomas Hackners contribution provides an insight into the work of Japanese book artist Onchi Koshiro, whose abstract formal language has become both source and subject of Pumhösl’s mode of depiction.
