Ical Krbbr Prdly Prsnts Gart Jas, Jon Klsy, Josf Stra

The artist and professor Michael Krebber recently invited his colleagues Gareth James, John Kelsey and Josef Strau to participate in an exhibition with the title “Ical Krbbr Prdly Prsnts Gart Jas, Jon Klsy, Josf Stra.” Minus a few of the necessary letters, the artists’ names became a wall painting transformed into concrete poetry. As the exhibition freed itself from the curator’s reins, the resulting exhibition catalogue also goes against conventional form and order. For example, a foreword by the editor turns out to be an artist’s improvised speech on the topic of “Puberty in Painting” “Now I have written: I can’t decide any longer for one of these points of views or non-points of views.” Artworks are not presented in groups by artist, but rather by associative links of picture strips, found-object texts, prose, drawings and collages.

This title is now out of print.

Isa Genzken
October Files book - Lisa Lee (Ed.)


Since the late 1970s, the Berlin-based contemporary artist Isa Genzken (b. 1948) has produced a body of work that is remarkable for its formal and material inventiveness. In her sculptural practice, Genzken has developed an expanded material repertoire that includes plaster, concrete, epoxy resin, and mass-produced objects that range from action figures to discarded pizza boxes. Her heterogeneous assemblages, a New York Times critic observes, are “brash, improvisational, full of searing color and attitude.” Genzken, the recent subject of a major retrospective at MoMA, offers a highly original interpretation of modernist, avant-garde, and post minimalist practices even as she engages pressing sociopolitics and economic issues of the present.

These illustrated essays address the full span of Genzken’s work, from the elegant floor sculptures with which she began her career to the assemblages, bursting with color and bristling with bric-a-brac, that she has produced since the beginning of the millennium. The texts, by writers including Yve-Alain Bois, Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, and the artist herself, consider her formation in the West German milieu; her critique of conventions of architecture, reconstruction, and memorialization; her sympathy with mass culture; and her ongoing interrogation of public and private spheres. Two texts appear in English for the first time, including a quasi-autobiographical screenplay written by Genzken in 1993.

Contributors: Yve-Alain Bois, Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Diedrich Diederichsen, Hal Foster, Isa Genzken, Isabelle Graw, Lisa Lee, Pamela M. Lee, Birgit Pelzer, Juliane Rebentisch, Josef Strau, Wolfgang Tillmans, Lawrence Weiner.

TEXTE ZUR KUNST #99
September 2015 "Phototgraphy"


Decades following the rise of computer aided design and the aesthetic-theoretical debates that coincided, it might seem late, at this point, to place a spotlight on photography. After all, hardly anyone defends photography’s loyalty to the analog index anymore, or mourns the medium specificities of centuries past. And yet, who can dispute that the photograph has become the primary base for establishing identity now, for cohering a social body; one that, as the substrate across which today’s human subject is drawn, stands as, in a sense,our material support? As the image’s gaze has become omnipresent, it is perhaps prime time to ask how do we now understand photo-media to operate? What information do we expect it to carry? What facts do we trust it to convey?
