Lynn Hershman Leeson is one of the first and most influential media artists. During the past five decades she has done pioneering work in the fields of photography, video, film, performance, installation, and interactive and net-based media art. Hershman Leeson’s major themes are the construction of identity, surveillance and control, and life in the age of genetic engineering. This is the first comprehensive monograph on an international star of media art. Hershman Leeson’s most well-known series is Roberta Breitmore (1973-78): a fictional character embodied by her and three other women, in part simultaneously. A kind of clone of the artist, her life is staged in real time and space. In her most recent works, Hershman Leeson includes web applications and mass communication media such as smartphones, as well as the latest scientific developments in the field of genetics and regenerative medicine, including 3D bioprinters that create human body parts.
Edited by Peter Weibel and texts by Pamela Lee and Andreas Beitin.

The Brutal Truth
Sturtevant’s investigations into the duality of original and copy, object and image, similarity and difference are contributions of outstanding importance to contemporary art.
Elaine Sturtevant (1930–2014), has been concerned since the mid-1960s with one of the most important themes in Western art – the aspect of originality. Her works are reproductions of existing works by such artists as Marcel Duchamp, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Frank Stella, to name only a few. Often indistinguishable from the originals, they call attention to the crucial issues of origin and difference. Designed and produced in close collaboration with the artist, this opulently illustrated publication (produced and published consecutively with another catalogue rainsonné volume) offers an unprecedented overview of the unique and unparalleled work of this American artist. This special book functions somewhat like an artist’s scrapbook, reproducing rarely seen photographs of Sturtevant in her studio producing the above-mentioned works, alongside promotional imagery, exhibitions views, and sketches, drawings, plans, notes, and photos from her work production throughout her entire career. An incredible insight into her working. Edited by Udo Kittelmann, Mario Kramer and Lena Maculan, this particular book also features a great interview between Sturtevant and the great artist/film director John Waters!
Published on the largest exhibition of the artists work at the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt/Main, September 25, 2004-January 30, 2005

Sculpture on the Move: 1946-2016
What new paths have sculptors opened up since the end of World War II? Based on late works by Constantin Brancusi and Alberto Giacometti, this comprehensive volume illustrates the exciting and multifaceted developments in this dynamic art form. The long list of the first-class artists presented ranges from Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, and Jean Tinguely to Franz West, Damien Hirst and Monika Sosnowska. Sculpture on the Move demonstrates how the classic notion of form and sculpture was set in motion, became more abstract, came closer to the ordinary everyday object, dissolved spatial or conceptual boundaries, and even reconstituted itself, returning to figurative traditions. On the basis of selected works from the Kunstmuseum Basel and from international museums and private collections, the book opens up a dense, extremely rich world of contrasts. Featured artists include Absalon, Carl Andre, Jean Arp, Max Bill, Louise Bourgeois, Constantin Brancusi, Alexander Calder, John Chamberlain, Eduardo Chillida, Peter Fischli und David Weiss, Katharina Fritsch, Alberto Giacometti, Robert Gober, Duane Hanson, Eva Hesse, Damien Hirst, Donald Judd, Mike Kelley, Jeff Koons, Mario Merz, Henry Moore, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Gabriel Orozco, Pablo Picasso, Charles Ray, Richard Serra, Monika Sosnowska, David Smith, Jean Tinguely, Oscar Tuazon, Danh Vo and Franz West.

Tell it to My Heart Vol. 1
Collected by Julie Ault
Julie Ault is an artist, curator, writer, and editor, whose work emphasizes and celebrates the complex interrelationships between cultural production and politics. Ault cofounded the New York artists’ collaborative Group Material, which between 1979 and 1996 explored this relationship between art, activism and politics through socially themed exhibitions and publicly-sited projects. The collection of artworks Ault has assembled over the last 30 years speaks to her practice as one built on exchange, friendship and a critical notion of mutable histories.
Tell It To My Heart – Collected by Julie Ault is published by Hatje Cantz in collaboration with Artists Space, New York; Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel; and Culturgest, Lisbon, and accompanies a three-part exhibition staged around the artworks in Ault’s possession. The exhibition was initiated by Nikola Dietrich and Scott Cameron Weaver at Museum für Gegenwartskunst, and was presented in Basel, Lisbon and New York between 2013 and 2014. The first volume of the publication was published to coincide with the exhibitions, and centers on an index of works along with detailed commentary on these works from the diverse voices of the book’s editors – Julie Ault, Martin Beck, Nikola Dietrich, Heinz Peter Knes, Rasmus Røhling, Jason Simon, Scott Cameron Weaver, Danh Vo and Amy Zion. Over the course of her 35-plus years at the forefront of New York’s art culture, Ault has amassed a superb collection of contemporary art, most of it given to her by artist friends and admirers. Almost more of an interiors book in the style of “Apartamento” magazine, “Tell It to My Heart” takes us through Ault’s New York apartment, reproducing works by artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., Andres Serrano, Nancy Spero and Danh Vo among many others. Together, and in situ, the artworks disclose a highly personal experience of an art community, initially centered in New York during Ault’s formative years, but with a reach that has long since transcended regional classifications.
