The Anti-Museum : An Anthology
Mathieu Copeland, Balthazar Lovay (Eds.)

The museum is constantly a target for criticism, whether it comes from artists, thinkers, curators, or even the public. From the avant-gardes of the twentieth century up until our contemporary era, the museum’s suspect position has generated countless gestures, iconoclastic actions, scathing attacks, utopias, and alternative exhibition spaces. For the first time, this anthology is devoted to the anti-museum, through anti-art, the anti-artist, anti-exhibition, as well as anti-architecture, anti-philosophy, anti-religion, anti-cinema and anti-music. This notion – unpatented but regularly reappropriated – traces the erratic, fractured, and sometimes paradoxical counter-history of the contestation of artistic institutions. From the first anti-exhibition to the first catalog retracing the history of “Closed Exhibitions,” from Dada to Noise music, from “Everything is Art” to NO!art, the Japanese avant-gardes to Lettrist cinema, and not forgetting such major protest figures as Gustav Metzger, Henry Flynt, Graciela Carnevale, and Lydia Lunch, The Anti-Museum sketches a polyphonic panorama where negation is accompanied by a powerful breath of life.

Edited by Mathieu Copeland and Balthazar Lovay.

Decoration : Tradition et Renouveau
Collection Connaissance des Arts

First printing of one of the heaviest hitters of Interior Design books, the enormous, lavishly illustrated “Decoration : Tradition et Renouveau” (Collection Connaissance des Arts) published in 1973 is without a doubt one of the most collectable of 1970’s design books.

This huge, prestigious, cloth-bound volume travels through some of the world’s most incredible domestic interiors of the period, including those of major architects, interior designers, fashion designers, art and antiquities collectors, and more, showcasing objets d’art, historical artifacts and furniture (from Pablo Picasso, Mies van der Rohe, Lucio Fontana, Nicola L, Cesar, Jean Dubuffet, Arman, Gae Aulenti, Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Enzo Mari, Pierre Paulin, Afra + Tobia Scarpa, Charles Eames, Joe Columbo, Verner Panton, Bruno Munari Afra Scarpa, Mario Bellini, Tom Wesselman, Sonia Delaunay, Man Ray) adorning decorated interiors ranging from “Tradition” (“a formula that allows one to integrate older items, furniture and artwork in a contemporary context”); “le Renouveau” (contemporary interiors of the 1970’s and “a section dedicated to design of the time offering a selection of the finest furniture, objects and accessories created by top designers”); and “l’Avant-garde” (displaying some of the most experimental, idiosyncratic, and forward-thinking interiors that bring together modern materiality, pop art and space design to create inspired interior living architectural spaces).
“How to reconcile antique furniture and contemporary structures? Can we adapt modern furniture within a traditionally inspired framework? This book, illustrated with beautiful photographs, mostly in color, reproducing the finest achievements of the great contemporary designers, responds to these questions.”
All texts in French.

A must-have for the interior design lover.
