Danh Vo’s conceptual artworks and installations often draw upon elements of personal lived experience (his own, the lives of his parents and other family members) to explore broader historical, social or political themes, particularly those relating to the history of Vietnam at the close of the twentieth century. The works shown in this book—closely related to an exhibition at the Pinault Foundation in Venice—in addition to Vo’s site-specific installations, include some curious old works of art from Venetian museums and collections, provocatively chosen by Vo to establish an unprecedented dialogue between past and present.

Beautifully designed, comprehensive exhibition catalogue with two inserted booklets (text book with words by Patricia Falguieres, Elisabeth Lebovici, and Amy Zion; and exhibition guide/artist profile book and work list), with the main book entirely made up of elegant colour photographic imagery by Heinz Peter Knez of the exhibition itself and the wonderful collection of works assembled. Profusely illustrated with installation views, works and details, featuring the work of Leonor Antunes, Nairy Baghramian, Giovanni Bellini, Constantin Brancusi, Marcel Broodthaers, Giovanni Buonconsigliodetto Il Marescalco, Hubert Duprat, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Luciano Fabro, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Petrit Halilaj, David Hammons, Roni Horn, Peter Hujar, Tetsumi Kudo, Bertrand Lavier, Zoe Leonard, Francesco Lo Savio, Lee Lozano, Robert Manson, Piero Manzoni, Sadamasa Motonaga, Jean-Luc Moulène, Henrik Olesen, Pablo Picasso, Sigmar Polke, Carol Rama, Charles Ray, Auguste Rodin, Cameron Rowland, Andres Serrano, Nancy Spero, Sturtevant, Alina Szapocznikow, Paul Thek, Harald Thys & Jos Degruyter, Danh Vo, David Wojnarowicz, Martin Wong.

Texte Zur Kunst #104

Issue #104 of TzK examines a key protagonist of the modern age: the individual. As our cover suggests, there is an inherent tragedy to this being who, however autonomous, is beholden to a program that it must internalize at the price of suffering enormously. This issue takes up the individual not as a fixed subject, but as a mode of the self that shifts according to the current form of governance, asking how 15-some years of the “new spirit of capitalism” has shaped her – as an artist, as an entrepreneur, as a “productive” contemporary self.

Martin Wong
Human Instamatic

Martin Wong: Human Instamatic explores the work of Chinese American artist Martin Wong (1946-1999), tracing his transition from an introspective youth in San Francisco painting haunting self-portraits, to his subsequent engagements with communities in the Bay Area and later New York City.
In the late 1960s and 1970s, Wong became an active participant in the thriving countercultural movement in California, where he collaborated with the radical queer performance groups Cockettes and Angels of Light. In 1978, Wong moved to New York where he could play a pivotal role in the arts scene throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Wong’s unique paintings of that period captures the vibrancy of the Lower East Side: a resilient, multi-ethnic, bohemian community grappling with an advanced process of gentrification. Diagnosed with HIV in 1994, Wong returned to San Francisco where he lived under the care of his parents until he died in 1999.
Martin Wong: Human Instamatic offers a comprehensive overview of Martin Wong’s career through a number of scholarly essays, archival material, and an interview with Wong made accessible to the public for the first time. Martin Wong: Human Instamatic is in partnership with the Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Contributors: Antonio Sergio Bessa, John Yau, Benjamin Binstock, Dan Cameron, Julie Ault, Yasmin Ramirez, and Sam Ashman.

Tell it to My Heart Vol. 1
Collected by Julie Ault


Julie Ault is an artist, curator, writer, and editor, whose work emphasizes and celebrates the complex interrelationships between cultural production and politics. Ault cofounded the New York artists’ collaborative Group Material, which between 1979 and 1996 explored this relationship between art, activism and politics through socially themed exhibitions and publicly-sited projects. The collection of artworks Ault has assembled over the last 30 years speaks to her practice as one built on exchange, friendship and a critical notion of mutable histories.

Tell It To My Heart – Collected by Julie Ault is published by Hatje Cantz in collaboration with Artists Space, New York; Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel; and Culturgest, Lisbon, and accompanies a three-part exhibition staged around the artworks in Ault’s possession. The exhibition was initiated by Nikola Dietrich and Scott Cameron Weaver at Museum für Gegenwartskunst, and was presented in Basel, Lisbon and New York between 2013 and 2014. The first volume of the publication was published to coincide with the exhibitions, and centers on an index of works along with detailed commentary on these works from the diverse voices of the book’s editors – Julie Ault, Martin Beck, Nikola Dietrich, Heinz Peter Knes, Rasmus Røhling, Jason Simon, Scott Cameron Weaver, Danh Vo and Amy Zion. Over the course of her 35-plus years at the forefront of New York’s art culture, Ault has amassed a superb collection of contemporary art, most of it given to her by artist friends and admirers. Almost more of an interiors book in the style of “Apartamento” magazine, “Tell It to My Heart” takes us through Ault’s New York apartment, reproducing works by artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., Andres Serrano, Nancy Spero and Danh Vo among many others. Together, and in situ, the artworks disclose a highly personal experience of an art community, initially centered in New York during Ault’s formative years, but with a reach that has long since transcended regional classifications.
