Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys
Die Schmutzigen Puppen Von Pommern

Part document, part photographic album, this book by artist duo Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys captures the sculptural revisionings of the descendants of an executioner family from Greifswald in Pomerania, a historical region on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea. The “dirty puppets” are weary, the clothing worn in by history, their story line deadpan and fable-like. In the twelfth century, the family amassed a fortune through the management and maintenance of the gallow fields; their influence also extended to the judiciary and its decision making. After three generations in power, the empire suddenly and inexplicably collapsed. It was said that the frenzy of executions was the reason for the downfall. The family descendents left to roam Pomerania, relegated to a fate of taunt and mockery.
Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys’s images form an allegory for human behavior under social and psychological pressure, and expose, not without humor, the bankruptcy of humanity.

Copublished with The Power Station, Dallas, on occasion of the eponymous exhibition, April 8−June 12, 2015.

Edition of 1000 copies.

Design by Boy Vereecken and Harald Thys

The Power Station is a not-for-profit contemporary art space in Exposition Park, Dallas, Texas, founded by Janelle and Alden Pinnell in 2011. It is housed in a former Dallas Power & Light building which was constructed in 1920, and hosts large scale exhibitions which compliment the building’s raw architecture. For each of its international exhibitions, The Power Station works with the artists to produce a publication in conjunction with their project, limited to 1000 copies. Its programming also includes a summer exhibition and additional events each year. The building includes an apartment where artists can live as they create and build their installations. The first exhibitor was American artist Oscar Tuazon.

Helke Bayrle
Portikus Under Construction 1992–2016


Edited by Fabian Schöneich
Texts by Helke Bayrle, Kirsty Bell, Daniel Birnbaum, Sunah Choi, Nikola Dietrich, Nikolaus Hirsch, Brigitte Kölle, Kasper König, Angelika Nollert, Melanie Ohnemus, Sophie von Olfers, Philippe Pirotte, Fabian Schöneich, Jochen Volz

In 1992, Helke Bayrle began videotaping the installation of each exhibition at the Portikus exhibition space. These videos form a remarkable and intimate archive of the storied Frankfurt contemporary art institution and the exceptional artists and personnel that have worked within it. Coinciding with the launch of a website containing all of Bayrle’s Portikus videos, this publication pays tribute to the artist’s extraordinary work, through a comprehensive timeline, video stills, and statements by past and current directors and curators. Art critic and historian Kirsty Bell writes about the history of Portikus and the meaning of Bayrle’s work. Also included in the book is a conversation with the artist and Sunah Choi, who, since 2001, has edited the videos that comprise Bayrle’s truly unique undertaking.
