Andre Cadere: Documenting Cadere, 1972-1978 [+ CD-audio]

André Cadere: Documenting Cadere, 1972-1978 is significant new publication on the work of André Cadere. Compiled and edited by curator and art historian Lynda Morris, this title offers an original and highly personal perspective on Cadere’s place in the Conceptual Art world of the 1970s, and the ongoing relevance of his ideas around ‘space and politics’. At the centre of the publication is Morris’ chronology of Cadere’s exhibitions, appearances, walks and lectures during the last six years of his life. This major piece of research shifts the focus away from the ‘round bars of wood’ as objects, and instead focuses on the meaning contained in the printed documents (gallery invitations, notices of lectures, debates and mailings) that record Cadere’s actions, movements and social relationships. These archival documents come predominantly from two sources – the archive of Lynda Morris and the Herbert Collection, Ghent. The publication contains new translations of lectures given by Cadere (Leuven, 1974), and well as reproducing an interview with artist conducted by Morris in 1976. Also contained are new essays by Lynda Morris, and two other figures who worked closely with Cadere; British curator Barry Barker and Italian gallerist Massimo Minini of Galeria Minini, Brescia.

Text: Luckraft Paul, Morris Lynda et al. cm 21×30; pp. 172; 10 COL e 255 BW ills.; paperback. Publisher: Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2013.
