VINYL : Records & Covers by Artists
Edited by Guy Schraenen

This large, detailed catalogue forms a unique and important document, which was produced to accompany an exhibition at Neues Museum Weserburg Bremen, Bremen, 21.8. – 27.11.2005 and Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Barcelona, 16.5. – 1.10.2006 showcasing a selection of some 800 pieces from the collection of Guy Schraenen. The main of this collection comprises vinyl records and covers by artists, musicians and poets in LP, single and other formats, alongside other sound media (tapes and CDs). Posters and books are also included. The exhibition shows artists (such as Hanne Darboven, Jean Dubuffet, Dieter Roth, Joseph Beuys, Laurie Anderson, John Cage, Yoko Ono, Yves Klein, Roman Opalka, Lawrence Weiner, Mike Kelley, Öyvind Fahlström, Art & Language and Hermann Nitsch) and artistic movements of the second half of the twentieth century through this complex medium of the vinyl cover, with its dual visual and audible components. Here Guy Schraenen has edited together an extensive visual catalogue of these historical objects.

A wonderful book for anyone interested in the history of modern sound art and the artistic medium of the vinyl sleeve, especially in the fields of Avantgarde, Electro-Acoustic, Modern Classical, Musique Concrète, Sound-Poetry, Art Rock, Industrial, Power-Electronics….

Kim Gordon
Girl in a Band: A Memoir


“There are few artists who inspire such reverence as Kim Gordon. In Girl in a Band she tells with complete openness the story of her family, her work in the visual arts, her move to New York City, the men in her life, her marriage, her relationship with her daughter, her music and her band. It is a rich and beautifully written memoir, taking us back to the lost New York of the 1980s and ’90s that gave birth to and nurtured Sonic Youth and the alternative revolution in popular music they spearheaded. But at its core, Girl in a Band is an examination of what partnership means – and what happens when it dissolves.”
