Invisible Adversaries
edited by Lauren Cornell

‘Invisible Adversaries’ was a major exhibition curated by Lauren Cornell and Tom Eccles inspired by the 1976 feature film by the radical Austrian artist Valie Export. The film presents a woman’s struggle to retain her sense of self against hostile alien forces that appear increasingly ubiquitous, colonizing the minds of all those around her. Motifs from the film – among them, architecture’s influence on identity; feminist critique; and the power of political fantasy – operate as filters through which to consider significant pieces from the Marieluise Hessel Collection.

With works by over 50 artists including Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Chantal Akerman, Kai Althoff, Janine Antoni, Ida Applebroog, Phyllida Barlow, Lynda Benglis, Barbara Bloom, Paul Chan, Patty Chang, Anne Collier, Rineke Dijkstra, Trisha Donnelly, VALIE EXPORT, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Isa Genzken, Liam Gillick, K8 Hardy, Rachel Harrison, Mona Hatoum, Roni Horn, Emily Jacir, Annette Kelm, Leigh Ledare, Nikki S. Lee, Sarah Lucas, Tala Madani, Christian Marclay, Helen Marten, Ulrike Müller, Bruce Nauman, Tony Oursler, Philippe Parreno, William Pope.L, Seth Price, Magali Reus, Rachel Rose, Thomas Ruff, Ilene Segalove, Cindy Sherman, Stephen Shore, Diane Simpson, Lorna Simpson, Jo Spence, Hito Steyerl, Tunga, Gillian Wearing, Martha Wilson, and Krzysztof Wodiczko, amongst others.

This 300-page publication designed by Zak Group with original essays by nine influential writers, scholars and artists: Zach Blas, Johanna Fateman, Nav Haq, Vít Havránek, J. Hoberman, Alex Kitnick, Tavia Nyong’O, Lauren O’Neill-Butler, and Julian Rose. The catalogue also includes original interviews with VALIE EXPORT, Trevor Paglen, and Hito Steyerl.

Lynda Benglis

The huge reference retrospective monograph: a complete overview of Lynda Benglis’ work and life from the late 1960s to the present day, with more than 350 illustrations, about 20 historical or commissioned essays, an interview, famous and unseen archival material (magazine articles, photographs, letters, installation shots), and a complete chronology.

“Seeing Lynda Benglis’s ad in Artforum in 1974 was one of the most pivotal moments of my career. I was in college in Buffalo & even the Albright-Knox Art Gallery which was one of the few local places to buy the magazine (and right across from where I went to school), had ripped out that page in the issues they were selling (I must have bought mine in NYC). She kicked ass!” – Cindy Sherman

Since more than 30 years, Lynda Benglis (born in 1941 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, lives and works in New York), one of America’s most important artists, a leader of Post Minimalism along with Richard Serra, Eva Hesse and Bruce Nauman, explores in her work a wide range of techniques and mediums, from wax abstract painting, to latex, polyurethane or metal sculpture, through video and performance footage.
This formal diversity expresses a complex and radical thinking about body, gender identity, representation of women and male dominance, beyond her feminist icon status since a series of sulphurous advertisements published with Robert Morris in the 1970s, including the famous and controversial ad in Artforum featuring her aggressively posed with a giant dildo and wearing only a pair of sunglasses.

Texts by Dave Hickey, Cindy Sherman, Robert Pincus-Witten, Richard Meyer, Annette Messager, Elisabeth Lebovici, Judith Tannenbaum, Caroline Hancock, Franck Gautherot, Laura Hoptman, Ron Gorchov, Keith Sonnier, John Baldessari, Diana Franssen.

An incredible book on an artist unlike any other!
