TEXTE ZUR KUNST #100
December 2015 "The Canon"


ISSUE NO. 100
DECEMBER 2015
„THE CANON“

“Our 100th issue is dedicated to the question of the “canon.” We take up this theme with an interest in reflecting on the journal’s own role in the field of contemporary art — one that, when first initiated in 1990, was markedly counter-canonical, vigorously contesting certain methods of critique while supporting others. And yet, we pause here to acknowledge that after 25 years, we have also doubtlessly played a crucial part in shaping a particular discourse, even normativizing it to some degree. Could it even be said that TzK has established a canon in its own right? With this issue, we now take stock of what TzK’s relationship to the canon might be, and moreover, what the notion of canonicity in 2015 might now represent.”

Isa Genzken

Now out of print, As New first edition of this great Isa Genzken publication.
This volume takes a radical depart from the standardised format of the retrospective catalogue. While being still lavishly illustrated and offering an in-depth look at the quest for the modern which has informed the radical and diverse Genzken’s oeuvre for four decades, it also gives a sense of the tremendous influence and inspiration of her body of work for three generations of artists.

Features artist contributions from: Lawrence Weiner,Simon Denny, Nick Mauss, Monica Bonvicini, Jutta Koether, Mark Leckey, Elizabeth Peyton, and Cerith Wyn Evans.

About MAY Revue:

Conceived as a collective space in which to develop thoughts and confront positions on artistic production, May magazine examines, quaterly, contemporary art practice and theory in direct engagement with the issues, contexts and strategies that construct these two fields. An approach that could be summed up as critique at work – or as critique actively performed in text and art forms alike.

Featuring essays, interviews, art works and reviews by artists, writers and diverse practitioners of the arts, the magazine also intends to address the economy of the production of knowledge – the starting point of this reflection being the space of indistinction between information and advertisement typical of our time. This implies a dialogue with forms of critique produced in other fields.
