United States of Latin America
Jens Hoffmann (Ed.)

Contributions by Stefan Benchoam, Fernanda Brenner, Eduardo Carrera, Jens Hoffmann, Pablo Léon de la Barra, Camila Marambio, Heidi Rabben, Marina Reyes Franco

This publication documents the exhibition “United States of Latin America,” held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), in collaboration with the Kadist Art Foundation. Bringing together their shared and ongoing engagement with artistic practices from Latin America, Jens Hoffmann and Pablo León de la Barra have assembled one of the most significant contemporary survey’s of recent art from the region.

Hoffmann and de la Barra’s project draws attention not only to the geographic territories of Latin America itself, but also to its relation within the wider scope of the Americas, and its position in a global artistic context. This book offers a framework for critical insight into artworks dealing with crucial social, industrial, or ecological concerns, and also for interrogating the very categories and terminologies used to construct the notion of Latin America.

This catalogue includes a conversation between Stefan Benchoam, Fernanda Brenner, Eduardo Carrera, Camila Marambio, and Marina Reyes Franco (moderated by Heidi Rabben), a glossary, a reflective essay by Hoffmann “after the fact,” and images from the exhibition.

ReFusing Fashion: Rei Kawakubo

Rei Kawakubo (born 1942) established Comme des Garcons in Tokyo in 1973 and quickly consolidated her stature as one of the three major Japanese designers alongside Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto. Kawakubo’s conceptions stem from her background in fine arts and literature rather than from any formal design training. Her fabrication methods, and her collaborations with artists such as the late, great Merce Cunningham, are explored in this survey of her work. “ReFusing Fashion” presents over 40 key garments, costumes from Kawakubo’s Cunningham collaboration, photographs, runway footage and ephemera.
