Amelie von Wulffen
Bilder / Works 1998-2016

A monograph on Amelie von Wulffen is long overdue. For more than twenty years, the artist has developed a formal and stylistically wide-ranging work (collages, installation works, animation films, drawings, sculptures and painting), which is reflected in its content persistence. Amelie von Wulffen takes a clear account of the German (cultural) history in the precipitation of the private and personal, and argues as an invaluable chronicler of repression. The biting humor that permeates her work does not stop at a human low ground, though not always as directly as in her drawings and comics. The texts of this richly illustrated monograph examine Wulffen’s contribution to the painting discourse, Psychoanalytic aspects and show the painter as a role model for a young generation of artists. Amelie von Wulffen, born in Breitenbrunn in 1966, lives and works in Berlin.

Texts by Manfred Hermes, Bernhart Schwenk, Amy Sillman

Sigmar Polke
Alice In Wonderland


Scarce first edition copy of this fine Japanese Polke catalogue.
Published in 2005/2006 to accompany the Sigmar Polke exhibition “Alice In Wonderland” held at the Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo and the National Museum of Art in Osaka, this handsome catalogue features many full-colour reproductions of Polke’s paintings and drawings throughout.
“This exhibition is composed mainly of works in the collection of the artist, so it might be described as an exhibition of “Polke by Polke.” In it, we examine the artist’s career through approximately 30 of his large-scale paintings, from his early masterworks Alice in Wonderland (1971), and representative pieces of the 1980s and 1990s to some of his most recent work.”
Includes texts in English and Japanese by Peter-Klaus Schuster, Wataru Hayashi, and more, plus an interview with Polke, biography, bibliography, exhibition list and list of exhibited works.
Comes wrapped in printed paper dust-jacket, protected in mylar wrap.

Polke is a major contemporary German artist and one of the most noted painters in the world. Polke was born in Oels, Silesia, formerly an eastern part of German territory, in 1941. At age 12 he moved to West Germany. After studying at the Dusseldorf Art Academy, he began making paintings incorporating photographs and references to American pop art and he has continued to develop experimental methods. Paintings that show the raster dots used in printing became his trademark and he also produced paintings on printed fabric or transparent materials instead of canvas. With broad knowledge and penetrating observation, parody, irony, and a sense of humor, he has combined a wide variety of motifs from the everyday life of contemporary people, fairy tales, history, military events,myths, and alchemy. These groups of images arouse the imagination of viewers. They are both fascinating and enigmatic. He received the Gold Lion Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1986 and the Praemium Imperiale in 2002.

Michael Krebber
Zeichnungen

Beautiful and very scarce early Michael Krebber catalogue, published on the occasion of his solo exhibition at Galerie Gisela Capitain in Cologne, October – November, 1992.

Containing no text (beyond the title page), this catalogue reproduces a series of Krebber’s drawings from this period in colour and black and white.

Michael Krebber (born 1954, lives and works in Cologne) is currently considered to be one of the most emblematic personalities of the international contemporary art scene. Having had a major influence on the art scene in Cologne during the 80’s and 90’s and ever since, Michael Krebber has a conceptual approach to painting that he explores beyond all pictorial conventions. His practice is marked by ambivalence, subversion, intransigence, and a feigned body language. Krebber is a dandy painter.
Although he appears to be a discreet character, both perplexed and ambivalent about the very nature of his practice, he nevertheless remains an influential first-class smuggler into the world of art on both the theoretical and economic levels. The dialogue that he maintains with his students at the Staatliche Hochschule in Frankfurt, sets him up as a “literary character,” the implementer of his very own process, which has fascinated the emerging generation.
