TEXTE ZUR KUNST #102
JUNE 2016 “FASHION”


Art and fashion have always been interrelated. And it’s due to fashion’s ability to quickly capture social shifts that the art world has repeatedly turned to it. But as Texte zur Kunst No. 102 proposes, it is fashion’s protagonists, recently, that have been markedly drawing on art conceptual practices (e.g., parasitism, collective authorship, détournement, and forms of institutional critique) as they push back against the pressures of a hyper-accelerated fashion market. In this issue, TzK examines, also, how the industry’s current volume is a product of its late-’00s promise of online democratization; the changing function of such long-held value designations as “luxury,” “discount,” and “underground,” and the role of “real”-er bodies in a climate wherein models are preferably “nodels” or “othered” bodies, hyper-individualised to stand out in the stream.

Descartes’ Daughter
Piper Marshall (Ed.)


Texts by Melanie Gilligan, Jenny Jaskey, Fionn Meade, Kari Rittenbach, Piper Marshall

Descartes’ Daughter, edited by Piper Marshall, former curator of the Swiss Institute in New York, documents the critically lauded 2013 exhibition of the same name as well as continuing its ideas. Taking the historical account of philosopher René Descartes’ creation of an animatronic effigy of his deceased young daughter as its foundation, the exhibition explored the traditional divide between conceptual and expressive works, those dealing with either the mind or the body.

The reader includes five essays that explore the room in between this divide, both within the works exhibited and beyond. Fionn Meade, curator at the Walker Art Center, submits a poetic elegy to René Descartes, placing his ideas and the discussion around them at the center of this book. Jenny Jaskey, director and curator of the Artists’s Institute, writes on scale and the subjective, metabolic qualities of “human.” Piper Marshall asks how one can curate a feminist art exhibition, firmly merging the discussion.

Copublished with Swiss Institute following the exhibition“Descartes’ Daughter” (September 20–November 3, 2014), with works by Malin Arnell, Miriam Cahn, John Chamberlain, Hanne Darboven, Melanie Gilligan, Rochelle Goldberg, Nicolás Guagnini/Jeff Preiss, Rachel Harrison, Charline von Heyl, Lucas Knipscher, Jason Loebs, Ulrike Müller, Pamela Rosenkranz, Karin Schneider, and Sergei Tcherepnin.

Will Benedict
Corruption Feeds

Published on the occasion of the first major institutional show by American artist Will Benedict, held at the Bergen Kunsthall in Norway, 31 October–14 December 2014, this heavy, visually-encompassing volume documents this exhibition along with many exhibits across the last few years. All designed by Will and Theodoros Gennitsakis, edited by Martin Clark and Steiner Sekkingstad.

Corruption Feeds is Will Benedict’s largest and most ambitious exhibition to date. It demonstrates the full breadth of his practice as an artist, curator and, most recently, filmmaker. Dividing the galleries at Bergen Kunsthall into a solo exhibition and a curated group show, his own works are brought into dialogue with an eclectic selection of found visual material, as well as works by a number of artists invited by Benedict, including Wolfgang Breuer, Clegg & Guttmann, Howard Finster, Gaylen Gerber,Tom Humphrey, Inventory, Fredrik Kolstø, David Leonard, Michele Di Menna, Pentti Monkkonen, Puppies Puppies, Lin May Saeed, Lucie Stahl, Anders Svarstad, Sergei Tcherepnin, Paul Theriault and Karl Uchermann.

Across the various different aspects of the exhibition, Benedict addresses themes of global distribution, agriculture, marketing and trade. The group section of the exhibition includes a new video, commissioned by Bergen Kunsthall and made by Benedict in collaboration with the artist and journalist David Leonard. Shot in various locations in France, Norway, India and the USA, it explores the transnational politics of food distribution through reportage, interviews and analysis, with various protagonists featuring a talking dolphin, giant rats and human rain. Other works in this section of the show further develop these ideas, and go on to address the marketing and advertising languages of the last three decades, revealing the symbiotic, or perhaps cannibalistic, relationship between contemporary art and commercial design and advertising—a space which Benedict’s own work frequently inhabits and explores.

Will Benedict (b. 1978) lives and works in Paris.
