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.

Willem de Rooij
Fong Leng. Sportswear

This publication presents de Rooj’s private collection of sportswear by Dutch designer Fong Leng.

Offering a focus on these supposedly trivial, mass-produced objects de Rooij creates groups of similar labels, colours and patterns that expose cross-references. Thus it becomes apparent that many of the surfaces recur to techniques and patterns of a wide variety of cultural spheres, such as caucasian carpets or Navajo blankets. Others seem to address sports as part activity, part status symbol.

Some of the prints and applications recall North American quilts or the specific Adiretechnique known from Ghana. The outcome of this is a contemporary discourse of fashion, gender and identity as much as within the oeuvre of Willem de Rooij.

Cosima Von Bonin
HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT

HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT, includes more than 100 works by Cosima von Bonin, ranging from her earliest to completely new works.

This retrospective exhibition also shows how von Bonin’s work has moved more and more in the direction of installations that increasingly come to take possession of the space they are placed in.

Another typical feature of her work is a complex network of relations between the fine arts and music that she has established, including longstanding colleagues and friends in her exhibition projects.

At mumok Vienna, Tocotronic and Phantom Ghost accompany the exhibition with concerts, and two further new formations from von Bonin’s circle of friends and acquaintances, The 3 Ypsilons and The Ypsilon Five, perform at the exhibition. The mumok museum facade gains a new balcony for this exhibition, with a figure standing on it and retching.

Appearances by Isa Genzken, Mike Kelley, Carl Andre, Martin Kippenberger, Christophe Verfaille, Okka-Esther Hungerbühler, Cady Noland, Helmut Baar, Colin de Land, Paul Thek, Michael Krebber…

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Cosima von Bonin: HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT at mumok, Vienna, 4 October 2014 – 18 January 2015.

Ull Hohn
Foregrounds, Distances

Edited by Hannes Loichinger, Magnus Schaefer
Texts by Tom Burr, Thomas Eggerer, Manfred Hermes, Hannes Loichinger, Fionn Meade, Magnus Schaefer, Megan Francis Sullivan, Lanka Tattersall, Alexis Vaillant

After his studies at the arts academies in Berlin and Düsseldorf, Ull Hohn (1960–1995) moved to New York to attend the Whitney Independent Study Program in 1987. Engaging with current theoretical debates and cultural issues, his work from the late 1980s and early 1990s frequently invokes questions of gender and homosexuality, as well as their representation. It interrogates the history of painting, traditional notions of virtuosity, the conventions of value and taste inherent to education, and the distinction between high and popular culture.

Ull Hohn: Foregrounds, Distances aims not only to offer the first comprehensive overview of his work, but also to contribute to a history of painting-based practices, which occupy a marginal place in the established narratives of the art of the 1980s and 1990s.
