Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria

Cosima von Bonin
The Fatigue Empire : The International Wool Secretary 1989-2010


Cosima von Bonin, one of today’s most prominent conceptual artists, uses sculptures, installations, films, paintings, and social relationships in her work. A recurring motif is the textile and dimensional transformation of objects, which she removes from their everyday contexts, thus giving rise to completely new perceptual processes and references. This publication on Cosima von Bonin not only includes the new and already existing work series being shown at the Kunsthaus Bregenz but also compiles the most comprehensive index of Cosima von Bonin’s oeuvre possible to date, with images and data on each piece.
Along with an overview by Yilmaz Dziewior, John Welchman’s contribution puts Bonin’s work in an art historical context. Mark von Schlegell has written a fictional essay that freely associates with and makes reference to aspects of the artist’s work.
A carefully researched appendix rounds off this standard work on Cosima von Bonin.

KAYA
Eva Birkenstock (Ed.) Kunsthaus Bregenz A r e n a 1

The present book – the fourth and last volume in the series of KUB Arena publications – goes far beyond a documentation of KAMP KAYA’s activities. Rather it is the very first comprehensive publication on KAYA, a joint project initiated by the painter Kerstin Brätsch and the sculptor Debo Eilers in 2010, in collaboration with the then 13-year-old Kaya Serene. In addition to a comprehensive and carefully compiled catalogue raisonné, the publication documents all of KAYA’s past exhibitions and includes seminal essays by Boško Blagojević, Scott Roben, and Kerstin Stakemeier – who have all been following KAYA’s work for many years – as well as a conversation with Burmamyanmar aka Daniel Chew. Altogether the publication provides profound insights into this important and exceptional artistic collaboration. In a similar manner to the volumes that have been published to date (On Performance, Anfang Gut. Alles Gut. Actualizations of the futurist opera Victory Over the Sun (1913), and Art and Ideology Critique After 1989), this last volume in the series could also potentially become one of the key references on the topic.

Ed Ruscha
Reading Ed Ruscha

Reading Ed Ruscha focuses on the painter Ed Ruscha’s artistic interest in books, writing, and the act of reading as pursued by him over a period of five decades. Text and the written word appear in his works as motifs and symbols, or as actual objects in the form of books. A range of artistic means are used to explore and manipulate reading as a meaning-generative process. The essays written for this catalog book by Douglas Coupland and W. S. Di Piero approach these issues through literary and poetic forms. Beatrice von Bismarck examines the book as work, medium of publication, and exhibition format, while Yilmaz Dziewior presents an overview of Ed Ruscha’s engagement with the book as a medium and his relation to the written word. Large-format illustrations of exhibits, installation views, and an extensive appendix supplement this book.
