Published on the occasion of her exhibition at Museion, Up presents a significant sampling of Judith Hopf’s work. In her practice, Hopf has consistently addressed the paradoxes and ridicule that spill form high-minded attitudes toward art making and the faith in technology, professionalism, and efficiency. Her works drip humor and yet are at the same time serious and pensive. A long conversation with art historian Sabine Bachmann, and two essays by curators Letizia Ragaglia and Roberto Pinto address the humanism of videos, sculptures and installations that are at once not effortless nor heavy.
This book is a catalogue of paintings by the German artist Matthias Dornfeld. No more, no less. As the essay by Katie Geha point out, Dornfeld creates paintings that hinge on the hysterical. He repeatedly paints familiar subjects: landscapes, portraits, and still lifes. “The subjects and motives are simple,” he explains. “They come without thinking. They’re stupid, banal, commonplace, clichés.” It is through the repetitive use of the familiar, even boring—both in process and in subject matter—that Dornfeld subverts these painterly tropes and, in turn, makes them strange, makes them funny.
The art of Paolo Icaro makes an utterly original contribution to the languages that developed in the 1960s and 1970s, such as Arte Povera, Conceptual Art and Process Art, with particular impact on the renewal of contemporary sculpture. This monograph edited by Lara Conte is based on a decade of research conducted on the works and materials of the Archivio Icaro. It retraces the entire creative path of the artist in a thematic itinerary aimed at shedding light on his poetics from the 1960s to the present. The book brings together a large body of previously unpublished materials, along with writings by the artist, a critical anthology and bio-bibliographic resources.
This is the first monograph detailing the practice of the German artist Jan Peter Hammer. The two essays and the conversation between the artist and Adam Kleinmann address the economic, social and historical tones that characterize Hammer’s video installations, as well as his sculptures and neon pieces, which are chronicled from 1993 to 2015.
