Art & Text, one of the landmark contemporary art magazines of the 1980s and 1990s. Founded in Melbourne, Australia, in 1981 by Paul Taylor (1957–92), who soon moved to New York City to make his mark as an art critic, the magazine went on to become one of a handful of international art magazines that succeeded in capturing the turmoil and passing brilliance of that period of postmodernism.

FLUITEN IN HET DONKER (Whistling in the Dark)
Ed. de Appel Curatorial Programme 2010/2011

Fluiten in het Donker (Whistling in the Dark) is a publication conceived along-side the eponymous group exhibition curated by de Appel Curatorial Programme 2010-2011. The book is not stricto sensu an exhibition catalogue. It is the trouble mirror of a curatorial research – a collection of texts and images related to the show and guided by the evolving internal dialogue of a fictive curatorial narrator. Artists presented within the exhibition and discussed in the publication are Absalon, Samuel Beckett, Pierre Bismuth, Tania Bruguera, Jenny Holzer, René Magritte and others.

Adorno
The Possibility of the Impossible (Vol. I and II set!)

 

Set of both long out-of-print volumes!

VOL. I
Edited by Michael Hirsch, Vanessa Joan Müller, Nicolaus Schafhausen
Texts by Norbert Bolz, Peter Bürger, Alex Demirovic, Diedrich Diederichsen, Alexander García Düttmann, Michael Hirsch, Christoph Menke, Willem van Reijen, Martin Seel

The first volume of Adorno. The Possibility of the Impossible comprises theoretical essays which investigate the relevance of Adorno’s critical theory for the present. The tight connection between individual observations in aesthetics and cultural criticism, on the one hand, and the large speculations of social theory and the history of philosophy, on the other, that is found in Adorno’s own work is taken as a point of departure in many passages. The difference – disparity, even – in the varied attitudes toward the content of Adorno’s theory is evident. Seen from the perspective of the present, this multiple rereading is directed at fragments of a thought that has preserved its radicality even when abstracted from its immediate historical context. Both publications – Adorno. The Impossibility of the Impossible Vol. I and Vol. II – accompany an exhibition at the Frankfurter Kunstverein on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Theodor W. Adorno.

VOL. II

Edited by Michael Hirsch, Vanessa Joan Müller, Nicolaus Schafhausen
Texts by Isabelle Graw and Georg Schöllhammer

Volume II documents the exhibition which looks at the connection between contemporary art and Adorno’s writings, with the visual arts becoming a central platform for comparison to Adorno’s main subjects. The publication illustrates the works exhibited and discusses the relationship between autonomy and sovereignty. Artists included are Carl Andre, Samuel Beckett, Martin Boyce, André Cadere, Martin Creed, Thomas Demand, Jason Dodge, Maria Eichhorn, Peter Friedl, Isa Genzken, Liam Gillick, Henrik Plenge Jacobsen, Euan McDonald, John Massey, Jonathan Monk, Sarah Morris, Bruce Nauman, Mathias Poledna, Stephen Prina, Florian Pumhösl, Ad Reinhardt, Gerhard Richter, Markus Schinwald, Andreas Slominski, Lawrence Weiner, Christopher Williams, Cerith Wyn Evans.
