Lee Lozano


ext by Iris Müller-Westermann, Jo Applin, Lucy R. Lippard, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer.

Mystery shrouds the American avant-garde artist Lee Lozano (1930–1999), and yet at the same time she is one of the least-known great artists of theNew York art scene of the sixties and early seventies. Working during the transition from Pop Art to Minimalism and Conceptual Art, Lozano created a radical, frequently obscene, and extremely provocative body of work in a world dominated by her male counterparts. Her brief career ended in the early seventies when she withdrew from the New York art scene, a move she presented in her Dropout Piece.

Only recently has there been more interest in Lozano’s art, as the presence of her work at the documenta 12 and elsewhere demonstrates. The publication of this volume coincides with a retrospective of her works and undertakes a new presentation of Lozano’s multifaceted oeuvre, ranging as it does from surreal pictorial worlds and large-format minimalist paintings to conceptual works from the late sixties.

Pablo Picasso
Picasso Skulpturen

  

The huge and now highly collectable, revised catalogue raisonné of Pablo Picasso’s sculptural work.

For years Pablo Picasso’s sculptural oeuvre was one of the best-kept secrets of 20th century art. It was only through retrospectives in Paris, London and New York during the 1960’s that Picasso the sculptor became known to a larger public who discovered a complexity and variety in his sculptures that easily rivals that of his paintings and drawings. Pablo Picasso: The Sculptures is a catalogue raisonné of Picasso’s sculptures, a seminal work informed by conversations between the author, Picasso specialist Werner Spies, and Picasso himself. This now highly collectable 2000 edition was thoroughly revised and includes numerous colour illustrations of important pieces. In all this volume features over 740 works by the artist, ranging from miniature paper figures to constructions from metal, wood, and found objects, from folding sculptures made from tin to massive, at times monumental works. A definitive statement on Picasso’s sculptural oeuvre, this book provides a key to understanding and appreciating works that, in their ingenuity and their inventiveness, still provide an inexhaustible source of inspiration for today’s artists.

Texts in German.

* Condition: Very Good-Fine (tight, clean copy in dust jacket and protective plastic sleeve) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Lynn Hershman Leeson
Civic Radar

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.

Sturtevant
The Brutal Truth


Volume one of the two-part major publication on the artist Sturtevant, both long out of print.

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
