ART POVERA-cover-1ArtPovera-spread-1

Art Povera
Conceptual, Actual or Impossible Art? Germano Celant (Ed.)

First printing of “Art Povera”, the now legendary critical/photographic book by Germano Celant (Italian art historian, critic and curator) documenting the so-called “Art Povera /Arte Povera” movement (meaning “poor art”, coined by Celant in 1967) and published by Studio Vista, London in 1969 and printed in Italy.

Includes profiles of major artists of the movement, including a short text followed by pages of full-page photographs for each artist.

Artists featured: Walter de Maria, Michelangelo Pisteletto, Stephen Kaltenbach, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Beuys, Eva Hesse, Michael Heizer, Ger van Elk, Lawrence Weiner, Luciano Fabro, Bruce Nauman, Joseph Kosuth, Jan Dibbets, Giovanni Anselmo, Robert Barry, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Dennis Oppenheim, Barry Flanagan, Robert Smithson, Giulio Paolini, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Alighiero Boetti, Giuseppe Penone, Franz Erhard Walther, Hans Haacke, Gilberto Zorio, Robert Morris, Marinus Boezem, Carl Andre, Emilio Prini, Richard Serra.

“This book does not aim at being an objective and general analysis of the phenomenon of art or life, but is rather an attempt to flank (both art and life) as accomplices of the changes and attitudes in the development of their daily becoming. This book does not attempt to be objective since the awareness of objectivity is false consciousness. The book, made up of photographs and written documents, bases its critical and editorial assumptions on the knowledge that criticism and iconographic documents give limited vision and partial perception of artistic work. The book, when it reproduces the documents of artistic work, refutes the linguistic mediation of photography. The book, even though it wants to avoid the logic of consumption, is a consumer’s item. … This book produces a collection of already old material. … In this book there is no need to reflect in order to seek a unitary and reassuring value, immediately refuted by the the authors themselves, rather there is the necessity to look into it for the changes, limits, precariousness and instability of artistic work.” — text from Celant’s introduction “Stating That.”

* Condition: Good-Very Good (tight, clean copy, very light cover/spine wear and age tanning to an otherwise solid book, minor marking to title page) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

WhenAttitudes-cover-1WhenAttitudes-spread-1

When Attitudes Become Form
Bern 1969 / Venice 2013

 

Published by Fondazione Prada
Edited by Germano Celant. Introduction by Miuccia Prada. Preface by Miuccia Prada, Patrizio Bertelli. Text by Gwen L. Allen, Pierre Bal Blanc, Claire Bishop, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Charles Esche, Boris Groys, Jens Hoffmann, Chus Martínez, Glenn Phillips, Christian Rattemeyer, Dieter Roelstraete, Anne Rorimer, Terry Smith, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Francesco Stocchi, Jan Verwoert. Interviews with Thomas Demand, Rem Koolhaas.

In a daring act of historical reconstruction, the curator Germano Celant, in dialogue with Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaas, has recreated Harald Szeemann’s epochal “Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form”, held at the Bern Kunsthalle in 1969, and installed by Celant at the magnificent Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice in June–November 2013. Szeemann’s show was a dialogue with the Bern Kunsthalle, and Celant has reprised its spirit by placing the works in dialogue with the Ca’ Corner della Regina–a very different building, in its Venetian grandeur, to the Kunsthalle.

This publication is divided into three parts: the first reproduces a complete collection of photo documentation of the original exhibit in 1969, many photographs previously unpublished, taken by photographers during the exhibition (Claudio Abate, Leonardo Bezzola, Balthasar Burkhard, Siegfried Kuhn, Dölf Preisig, Harry Shunk and Albert Winkler); the second compiles essays and interviews on Celant’s project (texts by Gwen L. Allen, Pierre Bal Blanc, Claire Bishop, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Charles Esche, Boris Groys, Jens Hoffmann, Chus Martínez, Glenn Phillips, Christian Rattemeyer, Dieter Roelstraete, Anne Rorimer, Terry Smith, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Francesco Stocchi, Jan Verwoert. Interviews with Thomas Demand, Rem Koolhaas) and the third includes the installation views of the show in Venice. The book is completed by a “Register” of works included in both shows.
A heavy, scientific volume of almost 800 pages that has become an invaluable reference for those interested in Conceptual Art, Minimalism, Art Povera, Land Art, Curatorial history, and much more.

It includes the work of artists:

Bart van der Heide, Manuel Raeder (Eds.)

 

Edited by Bart van der Heide and Manuel Raeder.

This book is an overview of the exhibition program of Bart van der Heide from 2010 – 2015, which he realised as the director of Kunstverein München. This program includes exhibitions by Silke Otto-Knapp, Ian Kiaer, Tobias Madison, Keren Cytter, Cathy Wilkes, Group Affinity, Willem de Rooij, Trisha Baga, Richard Tuttle, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Simon Denny, Nicolas Ceccaldi, Ger van Elk, James Richards, and others. Each exhibition is presented by a corresponding booklet, containing all texts and images. These accompanying publications were designed individually for each exhibition in cooperation with Studio Manuel Raeder. The different designs play with various fonts, formats, and graphic elements. Together with these publications, a variety of coloured images of exhibition views conveys the curatorial direction as well as the identity of the Kunstverein in those years. A reflection by Bart van der Heide and all booklet texts are included in both German and English.
