Alexander Kluge

Editor: Museum Folkwang
Author: Alexander Kluge
Designer: Fabian Bremer, Pascal Storz

To mark the occasion of Alexander Kluge’s eighty-fifth birthday, the Museum Folkwang is organizing a comprehensive show of the work of the film-maker, writer, philosopher, and artist. The exhibition is an introduction to Kluge’s artistic “pluriverse” and sets out to illustrate his main methods, themes, and conceptual approaches, with the central focus on his filmic collages. The accompanying book picks up on the themes addressed in the exhibition and concentrates on the principle of work collaboration, which is of key importance for Kluge: the process of “thinking together” with academics and artists, such as Thomas Demand, Georg Baselitz, and Ben Lerner. Both the book and the exhibition are being produced in closecollaboration with Alexander Kluge. “Alexander Kluge: Pluriverse” is at the Museum Folkwang Essen from 15 September 2017 to 7 January 2018 and at the 21er Haus in Vienna from February to April 2018. With texts by Leslie A. Adelson, Christoph Streckhardt, Richard Langston, Ben Lerner, Alexander Kluge, Anna Fricke, a.o.

This is an anthology of essays that first appeared in The Artist as Curator, a series that occupied eleven issues of Mousse from no. 41 (December 2013/January 2014) to no. 51 (December 2015/January 2016). It set out to examine what was then a profoundly influential but still under-studied phenomenon, a history that had yet to be written: the fundamental role artists have played as curators. Taking that ontologically ambiguous thing we call “the exhibition” as a critical medium, artists have often radically rethought conventional forms of exhibition making. This anthology surveys seminal examples of such exhibitions from the postwar to the present, including rare documents and illustrations.

It includes an introduction and the twenty essays that first appeared in Mousse, a newly commissioned afterword by Hans Ulrich Obrist, and two additional essays that appear here for the first time, discussing twenty-two exhibitions by the Avant-Garde Argentinian Visual Artists Group; Mel Bochner; Marcel Broodthaers; Hank Bull, Shen Fan, Zhou Tiehai, Shi Yong, and Ding Yi; John Cage; Judy Chicago, Miriam Schapiro, and the CalArts Feminist Art Program; Collaborative Projects Inc. (Colab); Alice Creischer, Andreas Siekmann, and Max Jorge Hinderer; Liam Gillick and Philippe Parreno; Group Material; Richard Hamilton and Victor Pasmore; David Hammons; Martin Kippenberger; Mark Leckey; Goshka Macuga; Lucy McKenzie and Paulina Ołowska; Hélio Oiticica; Walid Raad and Akram Zaatari; Martha Rosler; Avdey Ter-Oganyan; Philippe Thomas; and Andy Warhol.

Micol Assaël
ILIOKATAKINIOMUMASTILOPSARODIMAKOPIOTITA
Andrea Lissoni, ed.
Texts by Jens Hoffmann, Andrea Lissoni, and Luca Lo Pinto

This book was created in conjunction with Micol Assaël’s solo exhibition “ILIOKATAKINIOMUMASTILOPSARODIMAKOPIOTITA”, curated by Andrea Lissoni at Pirelli HangarBicocca (Milan, January 31 – May 4, 2014). It brings together, for the very first time, all of the work made by the artist between 1999 and 2014, offering a detailed, in-depth look at her practice.

Micol Assaël’s entire oeuvre is characterized by the use and juxtaposition of different media: drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, video and sound. Her works often have a complex and at times precarious relationship with the variables (size, lighting, temperature, smell) of the setting that houses them. Each one is analyzed in an entry containing a description of the work, a chronicle of its evolution and an outline of its exhibition history.
