Paul Thek
Tales the Tortoise Taught Us

Paul Thek (1933 – 1988) is the epitome of an ‘artist’s artist’ whose influence extends through to recent generations. This comprehensive exhibition comprising over 300 works and ranging across all periods of his artistic creativity, is concerned with the phenomenal influence his work continues to exert on contemporary art and his historical significance: from legendary outsider to the central figure of an art movement.

In their anti-heroic diversity and multimediality, and with their references to art, literature, and religion, his works (painting, photography, video, sculpture and installations) are among the central sources for the revolt and eruption of art in the 1960s. Published to accompany the exhibition at ZKM Karlsruhe and Sammlung Falckenberg Hamburg in 2008.

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.

Marcel Duchamp
The Afternoon Interviews


In 1964, Calvin Tomkins spent a number of afternoons interviewing Marcel Duchamp in his apartment on West 10th Street in New York City. Casual yet insightful, Duchamp mused on everything from paying taxes to his feelings about art dealers to his influence on younger generations of artists like Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage.

Those interviews became the source material for Tomkins’ profile of the iconic artist in The New Yorker, and later in his definitive 1996 biography, Duchamp. But they have never been edited and made public, until now.

In striking contrast to the mythic image established by decades of Duchampian scholarship, The Afternoon Interviews reveals him to be a man and an artist whose playful principles toward living freed him to make art that was as unpredictable, complex, and surprising as life itself.

This book includes never before published portraits of Duchamp recently discovered in the Philadelphia Museum of Art archive and an introductory interview with Tomkins reflecting on Duchamp as an artist, guide and friend.
