Exhibition catalogue / brochure published in conjunction with two-man show held March 1, 1969, and a seminar on March 5, 1969. Organized by Seth Siegelaub. Centerfold consists of the texts for each artist’s exhibited work: Joseph Kosuth’s “II. Relation (Art as Idea as Idea),” (1968) (Consisting of 3 parts: A. Absolute Relation / B. Partial Relation / C. Correspondence of Relationship) / Each part will appear separately in 3 local publications. Robert Morris: “1. There are two temperatures: one outside, one inside,” (1969).
Joseph Kosuth’s writings, like his installations, assert that art begins where mere physicality ends. The articles, statements, and interviews collected here, produced over a period of twenty-four years, range over philosophy of language, anthropology, Marxism, and linguistics to discover the common principles that inform representation while negotiating the endlessly complex debates about art over the last two decades. Kosuth was one of the first to record the basic ideas and the role of ideas in the avant-garde of the 1970s and 1980s. Rooted in Freud, Wittgenstein, and French theory, his work investigates the linguistic nature of art propositions and the role of social, institutional, psychological, and ethnological context. His writings, like his visual productions, are radical formulations of the meaning of art itself. As a whole, they present a new definition of an expanded role and responsibility for the artist. Kosuth reevaluates the work of Marcel Duchamp and provides a theoretical agenda for institutional critique. He discusses the role of art in the future and its relationship to philosophy, attacks the return to painting of the late 1970s, and argues for the continued relevance of conceptualist ideas at times when other visual idioms have dominated the art world. Joseph Kosuth first received widespread notice at the Museum of Modem Art’s “Information” exhibition and the Kunsthalle Bern’s “When Attitudes Become Form” in the late 1960s.
Joseph Kosuth: Re-defining the Context of Art is a theoretical reading of Kosuth’s media-related practice and includes essays by Gabriele Guercio, John C Welchman and Joseph Kosuth himself.
The book is richly illustrated with documentation of three groupings of works: The Second Investigation, 1968; Redefining the Context of Art at MIT List Visual Arts Center, 1997; and his retrospective at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven in 2004. These exhibitions all addressed the ‘context’ of art by reframing Kosuth’s public media works, such as on billboards or the television, within the gallery and also by employing media tactics, such as his public questionnaires, within an art setting.
For the first time in pubication, US artist Joseph Kosuth presents At Last I Thought I Understood (Madrid)]. Curated by Christian DomÃ ngue, this project represents a continuation of Kosuth s ground breaking installations and marks the beginning of a new series. This specially created installation features groups of luminous texts taken from works by the Latin American authors Jorge Luis Borges, Julio CortÃ¡zar and Juan Carlos Onetti. Kosuth also presents the project Located Work (Madrid) , created in collaboration with Mario Aguirre, Alexander ApÃ³stol, Busto Bocanegra, Sandra Gamarra, Hisae Ikenaga and Ximena Labra. Joseph Kosuth (Toledo, Ohio, 1945) is a pioneer of conceptual and installation art. His work on the relationships between art and language has been shown internationally, including 5 editions of Documenta in Kassel and 4 editions of the Venice Biennial.
This issue of Art & Design takes its theme from an important exhibition, proposed by the American conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth for the Camden Arts Centre in London. It brings together for the first time the work of three artists from three generations, Ad Reinhardt, Joseph Kosuth and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, demonstrating how each artist has adopted a critical stance and sought to re-define artistic traditions. Kosuth sees his work in terms of a bridge between that of Reinhardt and Gonzalez-Torres, and this publication illustrates and reflects on the notion of passage from one generation to another. This profile takes the exciting opportunity to publish many of the writings of Reinhardt and Kosuth, both artists to whom art criticism is ‘an internal affair’. There are also new writings by Kosuth in response to Reinhardt; a conversation between Kosuth and Gonzalez-Torres, whose conceptual work addresses social and political issues; and an important new text by Terry Atkinson who considers the work of all three.
Installation is arguably the most original, vigorous and fertile form of art today. This book sets out to describe the tradition and explore the achievements and ambitions of the installation artist. Michael Archer’s introduction traces the history of installation art from Duchamp’s first readymade through Pop tableaux to more recent developments such as Land Art and Process Art. This is followed by a global range of installations, presented and documented by Nicolas de Oliveira, Nicola Oxley and Michael Petry. The pieces are grouped into four sections, with more than 260 illustrations: site works from artists such as Christo, Richard Wilson, James Turrell and Hans Haacke; media works by Wolf Vostell, Meg Cranston, Joseph Kosuth, Nam June Paik and others; the museum works of Barbara Bloom, Mike Kelley, Cary Leibovitz, Ange Leccia and their peers; and architectural works by practitioners including Rachel Whiteread, Daniel Buren, Mario Merz and Vong Phaophanit.

HUO: In 1968, you curated the “Xerox book” project? Was this a “group show” in bookform? SS: Yes, the first “big” group show, if you like. This project evolved in the same way as most of my projects, in collaboration with the artists I worked with. We would sit around discussing the different ways and possibilities to show art, different contexts and environments in which art could be shown, indoors, outdoors, books, etc. The “Xerox book” – I now would prefer to call it the “Photocopy book”, so that no one gets the mistaken impression that the project has something to do with Xerox – was perhaps one of the most interesting because it was the first where I proposed a series of “requirements” for the project, concerning the use of a standard size paper and the amount of pages the “container” within which the artist was asked to work. What I was trying to do was standardize the conditions of exhibition with the idea that the resulting differences in each artist’s project or work, would be precisely what the artist’s work was about. It was an attempt to consciously standardize, in terms of an exhibition, book, or project, the conditions of production underlying the exhibition process. It was the first exhibition in fact where I asked the artists to do something, and it was probably somewhat less collaborative than I am now making it sound. But I do have the impression that the close working relationship with the artist was an important factor of all the projects, even when I was not particularly close to an artist, as for example, Bob Morris. (participating artists in the Xerox book were Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris and Lawrence Weiner) from: http://www.e-flux.com/projects/do_it/notes/interview/i001_text.html

This new volume of collected writings by French art critic and theoretician Nicolas Bourriaud focuses on the theme of space and the issues of artistic representations and how artists deal with information and its use and display in our globalized times. A succession of case studies allow a very precise reading of artistic strategies employed by artists to show their own perceptions of the world, drawing on what it means to make something that is “contemporary.” The volume features essays on Alighiero Boetti, Plamen Dejanoff, Fischli/Weiss, Raymond Hains, Alain Jacquet, Joseph Kosuth, Michel Majerus, Bruno Serralongue, and many others. French art critic, theoretician, and curator Nicolas Bourriaud (born 1965) was a cofounder and codirector of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2000–2006), Gulbenkian Curator for Contemporary Art at Tate Britain, director of the Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He is currently the artistic director of Montpellier Contemporain, a new institution based in Montpellier, France, and dedicated to the contemporary arts. He is the author of the landmark publication “Relational Aesthetics,” published in 1998, and still inspirational today for many artists, curators, and art professionals worldwide. The book is part of the Documents series, copublished with Les presses du réel and dedicated to critical writings.
“La critica è una riserva di incredulità verso l’arte, verso il mito della sua oscurità.” Che cos’è l’arte? Qual è la sua funzione? Che importanza ha l’uso del colore? Che significato ha l’impiego di diversi materiali? Quali sono i problemi che cerchi di risolvere e di formulare attraverso la tua arte? Che rapporto esiste tra la tua arte e la realtà che ti circonda? L’arte è informazione o comunicazione? Da Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Bruce Nauman, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Robert Ryman, Joseph Kosuth, Jannis Kounellis a Giulio Turcato, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Luciano Fabro, Vito Acconci, Giulio Paolini, Alighiero Boetti, Mario Merz, Sandro Chia, Enzo Cucchi, Francesco Clemente, Mimmo Paladino: i grandi artisti contemporanei raccontano ad un critico d’arte d’eccezione la loro idea dell’arte. Il libro riunisce una novantina di interviste di Achille Bonito Oliva ad artisti italiani e internazionali a partire dagli anni Settanta a oggi. Un’occasione unica per conoscere il mondo dell’arte contemporanea attraverso le parole degli stessi protagonisti.
This book presents 123 calling cards of artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, architects, graphic designers, illustrators etc.) from the 18th century to the present day. The facsimiled cards are slipped like bookmarks into a book by several authors on the history of the use of calling cards, the social context in which they were produced, and related historical and fictional narratives. The often unexpected graphic qualities of these personalized objects, each designed to capture an individual identity within the narrow confines of a tiny rectangle card, implicitly recount a history of taste and typographic codes in the West. But this calling card collection also lays the foundations for a microhistory of art, inspired by the Italian microstoria, or a looser narrative that breaks free from geographic contexts and historical periods. We can imagine how social networks were formed before the advent of Facebook, and how artists defined themselves in the social sphere, whether they were students or teachers, dean of the art school or museum curator, founder of a journal, firm, restaurant or political party, and so on. Superimposed on this imaginary or idealized network formed by chance encounters is a living network of students of art or history, historians or anthropologists, librarians, archivists, gallerists, museum curators and artists themselves, the network upon which this pocket museum is constructed. The sheer variety of perspectives and stories brought together here makes this book a prodigious forum for discussion. The carded artists include: Absalon, Anni and Josef Albers, John Armleder, Iain Baxter, Larry Bell, Joseph Beuys, Joseph Binder, Max Bill, Pierrette Bloch, Rosa Bonheur, Irma Boom, Aglaüs Bouvenne, Constantin Brancusi, Marcel Broodthaers, Antonio Canova, Caran d’Ache, A.M.

Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held at the Galerie Näscht St. Stephan, Wien, Austria, March 15 – April 10, 1971. Essays by Peter Weiermair and Ricky Comi. With statements by Joseph Kosuth and Sol LeWitt. Artists include Shushuku Arakawa, Arts Agency, John Baldessari, Mel Bochner, Daniel Buren, Luciano Fabro, Gilbert & George, Hans Haacke, Michael Heizer, Douglas Huebler, Mario Merz, N.E.

This beautiful, hefty catalogue of the most important works from one of the world’s finest collections of Minimal, Arte Povera and Conceptual art includes work by Carl Andre, John Baldessari, Marcel Broedthaers, Hanne Darboven, Gilbert & George, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, Robert Ryman, Robert Smithson and Lawrence Weiner, among others. In her essay, the esteemed independent curator and art historian Anne Rorimer writes, “Such is the breadth and depth of the Herbert Collection that an entire book on the art of the 1960s and 1970s could be written based on the many exemplary works included in it. As a group, works in the collection point to the revolutionary activity occurring at a time when long-held conventions associated with painting and sculpture were being questioned or overturned in the interest of aesthetic renewal. Each work, separately, speaks volumes about innovations in art production labeled by terms such as Minimal art, Arte Povera or Conceptual art. These terms, although by no means carved in stone, identify shared methods and goals pursued by artists on both sides of the Atlantic during the years leading up to and extending beyond 1968.
the book presents original texts and images by 70 artists and it aims to a critical understanding of the new conditions of art at the end of the twentieth century; it is a project originally conceived in the early 90’s by seth siegelaub with marion and roswitha fricke. the purpose of the project was an attempt to understand how the artists, the art world and art itself has evolved over the past 25 years. the late 60’s have been chosen as a point of departure for this project because more than in any other period in recent history many artists radically confronted and questioned the dominant values underlying the production and consumption of art: art as unique and rare object, art as a physically permanent “timeless” object, art as private property, etc. the organizers have asked 123 international artists who participated in one or more of the following exhibitions – op loose schroeven, when attitudes become form, prospekt 69 and konzeption/conception – to share their thoughts about the development of the art world, their work and themselves from the late 60’s until today. the response has been excellent and the book contains the replies of more than 60 artists including among others daniel buren, james lee byars, jan dibbets, joseph kosuth, mario merz and lawrence weiner
Diffuso ormai da un secolo in ogni ambito della vita quotidiana e da subito divenuto un simbolo della modernità, il neon è anche uno dei materiali più ricchi di potenzialità espressive tra quelli utilizzati nel campo artistico contemporaneo. Dagli anni cinquanta del Novecento in avanti, la sua energia smaterializzata, l’intensa gamma dei colori, la sua capacità di trasformarsi in segni, lettere e forme a due o tre dimensioni, lo ha infatti tramutato in una vera e propria “materia” duttile e luminosa, un medium di cui gli artisti hanno indagato di volta in volta le potenzialità comunicative, i risvolti fenomenologici, gli effetti sull’ambiente e sulla psiche umana. Il catalogo della mostra Neon. La materia luminosa dell’arte indaga in modo specifico la fortuna dei tubi fluorescenti nel panorama artistico internazionale degli ultimi cinque decenni, disegnando un viaggio attraverso poetiche, visioni e sensibilità diverse accomunate dalla attrazione per le possibilità espressive di un materiale straordinariamente versatile, in cui si combinano origine industriale e realizzazione artigianale, dimensione architettonica e linguistica, immagine e parola, luce e spazio. Mentre il neon tende a scomparire dalle città contemporanee, sostituito da più prosaiche insegne luminose a led, è l’arte visiva a rammentarci oggi la sua vicenda straordinaria e ad aprire le sue ancora inesplorate possibilità.

This volume assembles interviews with over thirty major artists to form a unique document of American art of the ’60s and ’70s. Between 1966 and 1973, Jeanne Siegel conducted interviews and panel discussions with most of the major art figures of the period. Here is Marcel Duchamp on his role as the major progenitor of the period; Ad Reinhardt on the importance of art as art; Don Judd, Andy Warhol, Robert Murray, Saul Steinberg, and others on Barnett Newman and his influence; Louise Nevelson on “feminine sculpture”; Romare Bearden on the role of African-American art in the civil rights movement; Leon Golub on the importance of social protest in art; Carl Andre on the Art Workers Coalition; Robert Rauschenberg and Larry Rivers on the possibilities of multi-media; Allen Kaprow and George Segal on environments and happenings; Claes Oldenburg on fragments of ordinary objects; Roy Lichtenstein on the influence of Art Deco:;Hans Haacke on systems aesthetics; and Joseph Kosuth on language art. Through these dialogues and others, Artwords exposes the foundations of the art of the ’80s and ’90s, illuminating the ideas which originated during this seminal period, and which are still very much alive today.

Certificates of authenticity are a critical aspect of art works today. They often embody the artwork itself, while referring to it, serving as its deed, legal statement, and fiscal invoice. Certificates by artists validate the authorship and originality of the work and they allow the work of art to be positioned in the marketplace as a branded product. Providing examples of artists certificates from the past fifty years, this book reveals how roles have shifted and developed, as well as how the materials and content of art have changed. With certificates by: Ruben Aubrecht, Judith Barry, Robert Barry/Stefan Brüggemann, Hemali Bhuta and Shreyas Karle, Pierre Bismuth, George Brecht, Marinus Boezem, Daniel Buren, Andre Caderé, Marcel Duchamp, Maria Eichhorn, Urs Fischer, Dan Flavin, Andrea Fraser, Liam Gillick, The Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation, Hans Haacke, Edward Kienholz, Yves Klein, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Ken Lum, Piero Manzoni, Gordon Matta-Clark, Josiah McElheny and Allan Kaprow, Jonathan Monk, Robert Morris, Antoni Muntadas, Yoko Ono, Cesare Pietroiusti, Adrian Piper, Emilio Prini, Robert Projansky and Seth Siegelaub, Raqs Media Collective, Robert Rauschenberg, Sharmila Samant, Joe Scanlan, David Shrigley, Daniel Spoerri, Haim Steinbach, Superflex, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Ben Vautier, Lawrence Weiner, Franz West, Cerith Wyn Evans, Carey Young, Andrea Zittel, Heimo Zobernig.
The lone artist is a worn cliche of art history but one that still defines how we think about the production of art. Since the 1960s, however, a number of artists have challenged this image by embarking on long-term collaborations that dramatically altered the terms of artistic identity. In The Third Hand, Charles Green offers a sustained critical examination of collaboration in international contemporary art, tracing its origins from the evolution of conceptual art in the 1960s into such stylistic labels as Earth Art, Systems Art, Body Art, and Performance Art. During this critical period, artists around the world began testing the limits of what art could be, how it might be produced, and who the artist is. Collaboration emerged as a prime way to reframe these questions.Green looks at three distinct types of collaboration: the highly bureaucratic identities created by Joseph Kosuth, Ian Burn, Mel Ramsden, and other members of Art & Language in the late 1960s; the close-knit relationships based on marriage or lifetime partnership as practiced by the Boyle Family, Anne and Patrick Poirier, Helen Mayer Harrison and Newton Harrison; and couples — like Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Gilbert & George, or Marina Abramovic and Ulay — who developed third identities, effacing the individual artists almost entirely. These collaborations, Green contends, resulted in new and, at times, extreme authorial models that continue to inform current thinking about artistic identity and to illuminate the origins of postmodern art, suggesting, in the process, a new genealogy for art in the twenty-first century.
Originally published in 1972 by the Nigel Greenwood Gallery, Book as Artwork 1960/1972 was the first catalogue devoted to the then new medium of the artist’s book and it remains a canonical reference (though one that, due to its scarcity, is not as well known as it should be). This publication started as an article and a list of about 80 artists’ books which appeared in 1970 in the first issue of the Italian magazine Arte. Not long after it was translated and published in Interfunktionen. Then in 1972 the Nigel Greenwood Gallery in London mounted an exhibition of artists’ books and issued a catalogue with an updated text by Celant and a greatly expanded bibliography (now nearly 300 titles) jointly compiled by Celant and Lynda Morris. The exhibition was the first of its kind and the catalogue a genuinely historic publication. Grounded in the media studies of Marshall McLuhan and philosophical writings of Herbert Marcuse, Celant’s analysis of the medium has the feeling of a definitive statement. He lays out exactly what makes the medium important while noting the historical trends and key individuals that led to its rapid development after 1960. Significantly, the history Celant wrote in 1972 is much broader than the overly simplistic Dieter-Rot-in-Europe-and-Ruscha-in-America origin myth of the artist’s book that has gained currency since. Besides Ruscha and Rot, Celant’s text emphasizes the early influence of John Cage but he also encompasses into the narrative such disparate or overlooked elements as the Zaj group in Spain and Arte Povera in Italy, as well as work related to Fluxus, Art & Language, Land Art, Pop, Minimalism, Conceptualism, etc. The bibliography includes books that range from the iconic to the virtually unknown by Vito Acconci, Carl Andre, Alison Knowles, Richard Hamilton, Piero Manzoni, Joseph Kosuth, John Latham, Andy Warhol, Bob Law, Yoko Ono, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Henry Flynt, Hanne Darboven, Dan Graham, Dick Higgins, Joel Fisher, Athena Tacha, John Stezaker, Gianfranco Baruchello, Jose Luis Castillejo, Sol Lewitt, Robert Morris, Stanley Brouwn, Edouardo Paolozzi, Bruce Nauman and Bruce McLean, to name just a few of the artists whose work is cited. With this new edition it is possible to regain the perspective of 1972. It was a period when, as Celant describes it, the “the rules used for the identification of the art object were destroyed” and thus “medium became significant in itself.” Artists’ books were emblematic of the new multidisciplinary approach taken by the era’s avant-garde and, as that approach continues to be the predominant mode among artists working today, it is increasingly clear that artists’ books have been, and continue to be, integral to the practice of art in the contemporary era.

Reconsidering the Object of Art examines a generally underexposed (and therefore often misunderstood) period in contemporary art and highlights artists whose practices have inspired much of the most significant art being produced today. It illustrates and discusses many crucial, ground-breaking works that have not been seen within their proper historical context, if they have been individually seen at all. By 1969 such artists as Michael Asher, John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers, Dan Graham, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner and others had begun to create works using a variety of media that sought to reevaluate certain fundamental premises about the formal, material, and contextual definitions of art. This first comprehensive overview of Conceptual art in English documents the work of fifty-five artists, work that marked a significant rupture with traditional forms and concepts of painting, sculpture, photography, and film. Also included are essays that elucidate the significant aesthetic issues that gave rise, in both America and Europe, to the highly individual, but related, modes of Conceptual art. Lucy Lippard (art historian) writes on the broader sociopolitical milieu in which this work was made; Stephen Melville (Professor of Art History, Ohio State University) probes the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of Conceptual art; and Jeff Wall (artist) discusses the relationship between Conceptual art and photography. Anne Rorimer and Ann Goldstein (curators of the exhibition the book accompanies) respectively take up the role of language in this work, and discuss each of the artists.
An essay by Peggy Gale introduces this transcription of historic talks by internationally known artists, recorded some 30 years ago at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Included are talks by Vito Acconci (1977), Carl Andre (1969), Joseph Beuys (1976), Daniel Buren (1973), James Lee Byars (1970), Paterson Ewen (1976), Robert Filliou (1973), Dan Graham (1973 and 1977), Douglas Huebler (1973), Joseph Kosuth (1969), Sol LeWitt (1970), Mel Ramsden for Art & Language(1972), Alan Sondheim (1973) and Lawrence Weiner (1972). These transcriptions are all collected for the first time in this volume. An important resource for contemporary art and its attendant issues, Artists Talk: 1969-1977reveals artists’ concerns during a period bracketed by Conceptual art and an international restructuring of power and influence in the art world.
By the end of the 1960s a revolution had taken place in the perception and practice of art in Europe and North America. This book, the first detailed account of developments centered around the conceptual art movement, highlights the main issues underlying visually disparate works dating from the second half of the 1960s to the end of the 1970s. These works questioned the accepted categories of painting and sculpture by embracing a wealth of alternative media and procedures. Traditional two- and three-dimensional representations were supplanted by a variety of linguistic and photographic means, as well as installations that brought into play the importance of presentation and site. Through close examination of individual works and artists, Anne Rorimer demonstrates the pervading desire to redefine the characteristics of what was once accepted as truly visual in order to dispel earlier assumptions and offer other criteria for seeing. Artists whose work is discussed in depth include Robert Ryman, Gerhard Richter, Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner, Eleanor Antin, John Baldessari, Gilbert & George, Sol LeWitt, Adrian Piper, Bruce Nauman, Vito Acconci, Marcel Broodthaers, Robert Smithson, Daniel Buren, and Michael Asher. Forerunners of the period such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Piero Manzoni, Joseph Beuys, Allan Kaprow, and Fluxus are also included.
Conceptual art was one of the most influential art movements of the second half of the twentieth century. In this book Alexander Alberro traces its origins to the mid-1960s, when its principles were first articulated by the artists Dan Graham, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Lawrence Weiner, and others. One of Alberro’s central arguments is that the conceptual art movement was founded not just by the artists but also by the dealer Seth Siegelaub. Siegelaub promoted the artists, curated groundbreaking shows, organized symposia and publications, and in many ways set the stage for another kind of entrepreneur: the freelance curator. Alberro examines both Siegelaub’s role in launching the careers of artists who were making “something from nothing” and his tactful business practices, particularly in marketing and advertising.Alberro draws on close readings of artworks produced by key conceptual artists in the mid- to late 1960s. He places the movement in the social context of the rebellion against existing cultural institutions, as well as the increased commercialization and globalization of the art world. The book ends with a discussion of one of Siegelaub’s most material and least ephemeral contributions, the Artist’s Reserved Rights Transfer and Sale Agreement, which he wrote between 1969 and 1971. Designed to limit the inordinate control of collectors, galleries, and museums by increasing the artist’s rights, the Agreement unwittingly codified the overlap between capitalism and the arts.
These two compilations, one a show catalog, the other an anthology of artists’ writings, review one of the most contested movements in 20th-century art. While the editors may quibble over certain key pointsAsuch as the founding moment of conceptualismAtheir works largely complement rather than contradict each other. In Conceptual Art, art history professors Alberro and Stimson present a rich history of the American branch through the writings of Joseph Kosuth, Lucy Lippard, the Art & Language collective, and dozens of others. The editors’ selections concentrate on the manifestos and critiques produced during the movement’s formative years from 1966 to 1977Ain fact, they seem to regard later artists as impure hangers-onAbut they also have included memoirs and a few retrospective histories. In addition, two introductions trace the movement’s history and analyze the true aims of the adherents. Reading these primary texts is essential to understanding such an intellectually grounded movement; one only hopes a more affordable paperback will be issued for students. The catalog to a show that will be moving from New York to Minneapolis and Miami, Global Conceptualism aims to broaden our understanding of conceptual art by showing its varied manifestations in different cultures at different times. The show’s organizers are careful to indicate that these manifestations are not necessarily part of a cohesive whole, intimating instead that conceptualism is a logical response to certain political conditions that have reappeared in various places. Reinforcing this basic understanding, the book presents 11 geographically oriented essays. The pieces are always informative, but their parameters vary widely, and the quality of the writing is rather uneven. These are supplemented by 70 pages of plates, a chronology, and brief biographies of the artists. Neither book is for the uninitiated, thanks largely to the complexity of the subject matter, but they are both clear and unique contributions.
Many of today’s artists display an affinity for the techniques and subjects of 1960s and 70s conceptual art. A new look at the work of Bas Jan Ader, Carl Andre, Art & Language, John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers, Daniel Buren, Jan Dibbets, Gilbert & George, Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Bruce Nauman, On Kawara, Edward Ruscha, Robert Ryman, Robert Smithson, Lawrence Weiner, and others bears exploring in relation to the processes and themes of contemporary art. By considering conceptual art in the Netherlands and Belgium from 1965-1975, this publication hopes to answer such questions, especially in relation to the Netherlands as a melting pot for ideas and the importance of Dutch institutions in supporting and disseminating conceptual art.
Art into Ideas provides an overview of one of the most important and influential developments in American and European art over the past thirty years. Focusing on works by a range of international artists, including Joseph Kosuth, Hans Haacke, Sherrie Levine and Joseph Beuys, Robert Morgan defines and elucidates the premises of conceptual art. He examines its evolution, from its inception in the 1960s through the 1980s, relating the movement to historical and cultural contexts, as well as to important theoretical and critical issues that emerged during these decades. Defining three primary modes of representation that characterise conceptual art – the philosophical, the structural, and the systemic – Morgan then applies these concepts in analyses of a variety of media, including painting, photography, books, and performance.
Hovering potentially between generosity and insult, seduction and trap, homage and defiance, the gift is a gesture with which relations are established and desires intertwined. In a world in which personal interactions are more and more sternly regulated, in which the symbolic value of things has been eroded, to reflect upon the work of art as a gift means to emphasize its ability to establish new types of relationships and encounters. Fifty artists, including Marina Abramovic, Vito Acconci, Louise Bourgeois, Clegg & Guttmann, Nan Goldin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Cai Guo-Qiang, Mona Hatoum, Alfredo Jaar, Joseph Kosuth, Piero Manzoni, Ana Mendieta, Yoko Ono and Gabriel Orozco, have fashioned gifts of object and self, gifts of one’s own body and of symbols, discreet and intrusive gifts, free handouts and exaggerated donations. In the spirit of giving, a bountiful range of philosophers, anthropologists, art critics and essayists offer their own musings on the idea of the gift.
Compared to other avant-garde movements that emerged in the 1960s, conceptual art has received relatively little serious attention by art historians and critics of the past twenty-five years—in part because of the difficult, intellectual nature of the art. This lack of attention is particularly striking given the tremendous influence of conceptual art on the art of the last fifteen years, on critical discussion surrounding postmodernism, and on the use of theory by artists, curators, critics, and historians. This landmark anthology collects for the first time the key historical documents that helped give definition and purpose to the movement. It also contains more recent memoirs by participants, as well as critical histories of the period by some of today’s leading artists and art historians. Many of the essays and artists’ statements have been translated into English specifically for this volume. A good portion of the exchange between artists, critics, and theorists took place in difficult-to-find limited-edition catalogs, small journals, and private correspondence. These influential documents are gathered here for the first time, along with a number of previously unpublished essays and interviews. Contributors: Alexander Alberro, Art & Language, Terry Atkinson, Michael Baldwin, Robert Barry, Gregory Battcock, Mel Bochner, Sigmund Bode, Georges Boudaille, Marcel Broodthaers, Benjamin Buchloh, Daniel Buren, Victor Burgin, Ian Burn, Jack Burnham, Luis Camnitzer, John Chandler, Sarah Charlesworth, Michel Claura, Jean Clay, Michael Corris, Eduardo Costa, Thomas Crow, Hanne Darboven, RaAl Escari, Piero Gilardi, Dan Graham, Maria Teresa Gramuglio, Hans Haacke, Charles Harrison, Roberto Jacoby, Mary Kelly, Joseph Kosuth, Max Kozloff, Christine Kozlov, Sol LeWitt, Lucy Lippard, Lee Lozano, Kynaston McShine, Cildo Meireles, Catherine Millet, Olivier Mosset, John Murphy, HAlio Oiticica, Michel Parmentier, Adrian Piper, Yvonne Rainer, Mari Carmen Ramirez, Nicolas Rosa, Harold Rosenberg, Martha Rosler, Allan Sekula, Jeanne Siegel, Seth Siegelaub, Terry Smith, Robert Smithson, Athena Tacha Spear, Blake Stimson, Niele Toroni, Mierle Ukeles, Jeff Wall, Rolf Wedewer, Ian Wilson.
This anthology presents over two decades of the most memorable issues and events of contemporary art as seen through the pages of Flash Art, the controversial, contradictory art magazine that has influenced both cultural taste and artistic development for twenty-one years. From Arte Povera, Process Art, Conceptual Art, Performance Art, and Post-Conceptualism to Pictures, the Transavantgarde, the East Village, and NeoConceptualism, Flash Art has functioned as both forum and catalyst for current art trends. The book includes such artists and theorists as Bernd and Hilla Becher, Rebecca Horn, Joseph Kosuth, John Baldessari, Gordon Matta-Clark, Sherrie Levine, Gilles Deleuze, Edward Ruscha, Mimmo Paladino, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Frank Stella, Julia Kristeva, Jean Baudrillard, Fredric Jameson, Jeff Koons, Donald Judd, Peter Halley, David Salle, Gerhard Richter, and Germano Celant. It documents the magazine’s policy and trajectory throughout the course of contemporary culture a policy that has been consistently concerned with capturing the new and the radical, transforming them inevitably, into the event.

Il volume presenta una parte del tutto inedita della raccolta di Giuseppe Panza di Biumo – uno dei più importanti collezionisti dell’arte americana del secondo dopoguerra -, ovvero quella dedicata all’arte concettuale, esposta per la prima volta al MART di Rovereto. La presentazione della conceptual art della collezione Panza, che è stata esposta per la prima volta nel 2008 presso lo Hirshhorn Museum di Washington, rappresenta un evento di grande interesse e novità in Italia, sia perché sono piuttosto rare le esposizioni nel paese dedicate all’argomento, sia perché affronta un tema storico per il percorso di ricerca del MART, quello della relazione tra arte e parola. In catalogo sono riproposte le opere di artisti di fama internazionale, tra i quali Joseph Kosuth, Robert Berry, Hanne Darboven, Lawrence Weiner, Sol LeWitt, Jan Dibbets, Hamish Fulton, Franco Vimercati, Jan Wilson e Peter Wegner. Il volume accoglie un testo di Gabriella Belli, e annotazioni di Giuseppe Panz

Art and Text covers the development of the textual medium in art from the early combinations of text, lettering and image in the work of seminal artists such as El Lissitzky and Kurt Schwitters right up to the present day. The use of written language has been one of the most defining developments in visual art of the twentieth century. Art and Text is a unique and timely survey of this most contemporary and relevant artistic tool. The use of text can be seen in some of the most avant-garde artwork of the twentieth century; René Magritte and dadaist artists used it to describe anti-art and anti-aesthetic sentiment. The work of some of the most famous conceptual artists of the 1960s began to use written language as an artwork in itself. Artists such as John Baldessari, Lawrence Weiner and Bruce Nauman, who are still today some of the world’s most respected artists, helped push the boundaries of what constitutes art at the time and it has continued to develop since that period. The expansive Art & Language group of artists and theorists, including Joseph Kosuth, also reconsidered the possibilities of ‘linguistic art.’ Contemporary artists continue to use this medium and expand its possibilities, which range from being a most direct and immediate means of artistic expression (Tracey Emin, Cy Twombly), to an effective socio-political artistic mechanism (BANK, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jenny Holzer).

This book accompanies the exhibition of artists’ billboards that opens the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art’s (MASS MoCA’s) inaugural season. The exhibition comprises a twenty-work retrospective of billboards designed by artists over the past three decades as well as five newly commissioned ones. The retrospective includes works by, among others, John Baldessari, Geneviève Cadieux, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Gran Fury, Group Material, the Guerrilla Girls, Jenny Holzer, Joseph Kosuth, and Barbara Kruger. The new works, made in cooperation with the communities where they will be installed, are by Julie Ault and Martin Beck, Lothar Baumgarten, Sue Coe, Leon Golub, and Gary Simmons. In addition to the descriptions and color images of the historic and new billboards, the book contains almost three hundred short entries, offering the first broad survey of the medium. More than half of these entries include a small color image. The book also contains three essays. In “Disturbances in the Field of Mammon: Toward a History of Artists’ Billboards,” Harriet Senie finds precursors for contemporary billboards in European art posters (Toulouse-Lautrec), modern political posters (Rodchenko), and war billboards (“Uncle Sam Wants You”). She looks at the subject matter of contemporary artists’ billboards–racism, feminism, environmental issues, war and peace, consumerism, and AIDS–and at artists’ strategies and site choices. Public artist Peggy Diggs discusses the process through which billboards are made and the problems encountered by billboard artists, and curator Laura Heon writes about works in the exhibition, in particular the (often conceptual) billboards that do not “sell” any political message.
A Guggenheim Museum Publication Dan Flavin (1933-1996) was hailed for his pioneering use of light and color divorced from traditional artistic contexts. Employing only commercial fluorescent lights, Flavin devised a radical new art form that circumvented the limits imposed by frames, pedestals, and other conventional means of display. His embrace of the unadorned fluorescent light as an aesthetic object placed him at the forefront of Minimal art.
This book, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin, draws upon the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s extensive holdings of Flavin’s work, which includes representative examples of each of the formats he developed over the course of his career.
Flooded with color on every page, this volume provides a wide-ranging view of Flavin’s work and intellectual thought, bringing together contributions by a number of critics and art historians, and including excerpted writings by the artist. illustrated in full color,
La storia del rapporto tra l’arte e il “mondo delle notizie stampate” inizia con il Cubismo e con le avanguardie del primo Novecento, attraversa tutto il secolo e giunge fino a noi articolandosi in modi sempre nuovi. Su questo rapporto è incentrata la straordinaria collezione dei coniugi Annette e Peter Nobel, di cui questo catalogo presenta un’ampia e significativa selezione. Il saggio di Jean Baudrillard e gli altri saggi che accompagnano le 370 opere riprodotte non si limitano a ripercorre la storia di questo rapporto, ma ci aiutano a capire la rilevanza che esso assume nei nostri anni, in cui fotografie e notizie ci inseguono ovunque, veicolate non solo dalla stampa ma anche da smartphone, computer ecc., facendosi sempre più pervasive. Tra i numerosi artisti rappresentati: Jean Arp, John Baldessari, George Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Alighiero e Boetti, Georges Braque, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Christo, Fortunato Depero, Walker Evans, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Urs Fischer, Gilbert & George, Nan Goldin, Richard Hamilton, John Heartfield, Thomas Hirschhorn, Dennis Hopper, Roni Horn, Alfredo Jaar, William Kentridge, Willem de Kooning, Joseph Kosuth, Jannis Kpunellis, Le Corbusier, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mirò, Gianni Motti, Sigmar Polke, Richard Prince, Man Ray, Gerhard Richter, Dieter Roth, Edward Ruscha, Kurt Schwitters, Cindy Sherman, David Shrigley, Roman Signer, Antoni Tàpies, Zhou Tiehai, Wolfgan Tillmans.
To bring contemporary art to the ancient heart of Rome is to afffirm the city’s constant evolution. Among the archeological ruins of the Fori Imperiali, five artists–Joseph Kosuth, Domenico Bianchi, Maurizio Mochetti, Marina Abramovic and Michelangelo Pistoletto–have mounted site-specific installations, communicating with the forums via the universal idiom of art.
Il saggio di Alexander Alberro ripercorre la nascita e lo sviluppo del movimento dell’Arte Concettuale sul finire degli anni Sessanta, quando erano attivi i principali esponenti del movimento, come Dan Graham, Joseph Kosuth e Sol Lewitt. Oltre agli artisti, sostiene Alberro, il movimento dell’Arte Concettuale deve la sua importanza anche a Seth Sigelaub, critico d’arte, gallerista e pubblicitario, mercante e sostenitore degli artisti, che attraverso l’organizzazione di mostre innovative e pubblicazioni crea una nuova figura nel mondo dell’arte, quella del curatore freelance. Alberro esamina la figura di Sigelaub nel suo ruolo di promotore delle carriere degli artisti, creati dal nulla, e le sue tecniche di business nell’ambito soprattutto della comunicazione e della pubblicità. Partendo da queste premesse, Alberro evidenzia le sorprendenti corrispondenze tra le strategie di produzione e diffusione delle opere concettuali e le pratiche di promozione delle merci che si andavano allora determinando nella sfera economica – una sovrapposizione che fu il risultato della precisa strategia messa in atto proprio da Seth Siegelaub. In stretta sinergia con l’attività “mondana” degli artisti, le sue innovative pratiche “curatoriali” non furono meri accessori per l’arte concettuale ma, anche a causa della sua natura “smaterializzata”, ne divennero strumenti necessari senza i quali l’esistenza stessa delle opere sarebbe venuta meno. Si giunge così alla sovrapposizione tra arte e mercato: a prescindere dalla volontarietà o consapevolezza dei suoi artefici, la natura dell’arte concettuale si lega strettamente con l’essenza del mercato capitalista, ovvero con quei “dispositivi di pubblicizzazione” delle merci tipici delle “nuove economie del valore estetico”.
Questa monografia su Gino De Dominicis, ampliata e arricchita con nuovi documenti, è un omaggio a un artista originale e carismatico che ha ammantato la propria immagine di un alone di mistero. Il volume riunisce quaranta contributi, almeno metà dei quali inediti, di autori come Jean Christophe Ammann, Renato Barilli, Achille Bonito Oliva, Norman Bryson, Daniel Buren, Carolyn Christov Bakargiev, Creighton Gilbert, Anselm Kiefer, Joseph Kosuth, Jannis Kounellis, Luigi Ontani, Emilio Prini, Vittorio Sgarbi, Italo Tomassoni, Angela Vettese e altri ancora. Un dibattito a più voci idealmente moderato da Gabriele Guercio, curatore della raccolta e autore del saggio conclusivo. Gino De Dominicis (Ancona, 1947, Roma, 1998) è stata una figura carismatica ed enigmatica nella storia dell’arte italiana e internazionale degli ultimi trent’anni. Uomo e artista dalla personalità inafferrabile, con le sue posizioni radicali ha allontanato ogni tentativo di definizione del suo lavoro e di omologazione da parte del mondo dell’arte, isolandosi in un riserbo estremamente difeso. Utilizzando le più diverse forme espressive – grandi tavole a matita e gesso, dipinti, disegni a penna, opere tridimensionali – la sua arte è stata caratterizzata da una riflessione sui temi della vita e della morte. Un altro dei suoi motivi ricorrenti è stato il desiderio di immortalità, vissuto come estremo fine della nostra esistenza. Scriveva: «Per esistere veramente dovremmo fermarci nel tempo».
