Laure Prouvost
We Would Be Floating Away from the Dirty Past


For the spacious central hall in the Haus der Kunst, Laure Prouvost creates an installation that includes sculptural and cinematic elements. In this work, Prouvost refers to both architecture and the House of Art as an institution, rich in imagery and inimitable humor.
This catalog is the fourth volume in the series “The Public – from the Friends House of Art”, which annually documents artistic commission work for the middle hall of the House of Art.

HYBRIDIZE OR DISAPPEAR
João Laia (Ed.)

João Laia, ed.
Texts by Stephanie Bailey, Paulo Cunha E Silva, Attilia Fattori Franchini, João Laia, João Ribas, Alex Ross, David Santos, Andrey Shental, Eleanor Ivory Weber, Rósza Zita Farkas

This publication has been produced in the framework of “Hybridize or Disappear”, a group exhibition with works by Cécile B. Evans, Neïl Beloufa, Antoine Catala, Diogo Evangelista, Oliver Laric, Shana Moulton, Katja Novitskova, Laure Prouvost and Magali Reus at the Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea – Museu do Chiado, Lisbon, and at the Paços do Concelho, Câmara Municipal do Porto. Edited by João Laia, this book aims to expand on the universe of the show, posing a wide set of questions that shape contemporary visual culture, rather than serving as a document or an archive. Through the lens of the “hybrid”, the commissioned texts look at different dimensions of our current condition, addressing ideas related to the circulation of identity and meaning in our mediated environments.

The Assistants
Fionn Meade (Ed.)

Edited by Fionn Meade, The Assistants originates as the visual and conceptual companion of the exhibition organized at David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles. Featuring original contributions together with rarely seen works, the publication is animated by Uri Aran, Nairy Baghramian, Matthew Brannon, Andrea Büttner, Rosalind Nashashibi, Adrian Piper, Laure Prouvost, Slavs and Tatars, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, and Cathy Wilkes.

“The Assistants explores the transitive potential of art, including how artworks can take on attendant guises and play assisting roles, serving as custodians of memory while also producing resistant gestures and deviant substitutions. […] Resigned to respond and generate rather than fix meaning, The Assistants are inalienable and moving within and among us, writes Walter Benjamin, ‘None has a firm place in the world, or firm, inalienable outlines… There is not one that is not either rising or falling, none that is not trading qualities with its enemy or neighbor, none that has not completed its time and yet is unripe, none that is not deeply exhausted and yet is only at the beginning of a long existence.’” – Fionn Meade

Flaca / Tom Humphreys

Edited by Nikolaus Hirsch, Sophie von Olfers
Contributions by Thomas Bayrle, Christian Egger, Nikolaus Hirsch, Sophie von Olfers

Emerging from the eponymous exhibition at Portikus in Frankfurt am Main, Flaca / Tom Humphreys reflects on the London exhibition space, Flaca, that Tom Humphreys organized between 2003 and 2007. Humphreys developed an exhibition that made no pretense to offer an illustrative or historically accurate representation of his activities at the time, instead turning the space into a distorted double set in the present. Humphreys is interested in questioning the activities of that time; some of the artists he invited for this exhibition, for instance, never showed at Flaca. As Christian Egger writes in the catalogue: “Exhibiting there often meant that you could look with a fresh eye at the first solo shows in London of artists you’d only just seen at Flaca, and that was all really quite exciting, as though you were experiencing a little bit of what the mobile phone you’d brought along had gone through when you first scared it by charging it with island juice, there was somehow a different energy—a flirtation with malfunction.” The catalogue compliments the energetic, engaged style embodied by both Flaca and the reflective exhibition.
