  • Monumental Minimal

    Monumental Minimal

    Showcasing 21 works by the artists who spearheaded minimalism—Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Robert Mangold, Sol LeWitt and Robert Morris—this catalog seeks to explore these artists’ ambivalent relationship to the notion of the monument. In this respect, Dan Flavin’s 1967 Monument, a stepped formation of white fluorescent tubes dedicated to Russian artist Vladimir Tatlin, is the chronological and conceptual starting-point of the exhibition. This emblematic work demonstrates the importance of constructivist theories for minimalism, and the European roots of an art often considered to be typically American. The exhibition looks into transatlantic exchanges and influences for the artists of the New York scene: Carl Andre and Robert Morris have both recognized the influence of Constantin Brancusi’s work on their own, while Robert Mangold has acknowledged his admiration of Piet Mondrian. Alongside an essay by curator Philippe Vergne, Monumental Minimal includes full-spread installation views of the exhibition as well as archival photographs.

    Joachim Brohm & Alec Soth: Two Rivers

    This publication brings together the work of German photographer Joachim Brohm (born 1955), credited with being one of the first photographers in Germany to work exclusively in color, and American photographer Alec Soth (born 1969).

  • Football Disco!

    Football Disco!

    As this fascinating book shows, the football record—which turns out to be a vast subgenre of its own—has more to offer than just music: the sleeves of these seven-inch records outline the history of football in a truly unique way. They tell of promotions, championship titles, finals and ground inaugurations, and document the evolution of equipment (for example, from the heavy brown leather ball to the TV-friendly black-and-white ball); they also show how the typography and imagery changed from one World Cup to another. Each cover is a piece of commercial art and a testament to its time, narrating the history of football in a fun, informative and special fashion.Based on a collection of 930 cases of records from the 1950s to the present, Football Disco! tells the story of clubs such as Botafogo and Boca, Norwich and Nantes, Spartak and Dynamo, and celebrates footballers as pop stars: Pelé and Beckenbauer, Müller and Milla, Hoddle and Waddle, Scifo and Sanchez. Texts on football and music in Italy, Argentina, Germany and England situate the collection in a historical, regional and cultural context.

  • Striking Power

    Striking Power

    Striking Power—the very first exhibition and publication to explore the history of iconoclasm in ancient Egyptian art—is an in-depth examination of the widespread campaigns of targeted image destruction that periodically swept through ancient Egypt, driven by political and religious motivations. Focusing on the legacies of pharaohs Hatshepsut (reigned c. 1478–58 BCE) and Akhenaten (reigned c. 1353–36 BCE), as well as the destruction of objects in Late Antiquity, the book pairs damaged works, from fragmented heads to altered inscriptions, with undamaged examples. In ancient Egypt, the deliberate destruction of objects—a nearly universal practice that continues in our own day—derived from the perception of images not only as representations but also as containers of powerful spiritual energy. Considering this historical phenomenon, Striking Power raises timely questions about the power of images and the ways in which we try to contain them.

  • Tim Carpenter: Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road

    Tim Carpenter: Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road

    In Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road, his second book with The Ice Plant, Brooklyn-based photographer Tim Carpenter (born 1968) revisits the Central Illinois topography of his first monograph, Local Objects, with a sequence of 56 black-and-white, medium-format photographs, all made on a single winter morning. Where Local Objects meandered this semi-rural Midwestern landscape through changing seasons, detached from time, here Carpenter follows a straightforward path, literally taking the viewer on a chronological two-hour walk from point A to point B. Nothing much happens along this brief narrative arc—there are fallow fields, standing water, dormant trees, the occasional tire track on worn pavement—yet Carpenter explores the stillness of this outdoor space with an intensity of attention, a lightness of touch and a palpable, almost erotic longing, discovering complex subtleties at every turn.

    Sorcerer’s Burden, the

    The Sorcerer’s Burden: Contemporary Art & the Anthropological Turn explores the complicated relationship between art and anthropology as it has been probed in the work of contemporary artists. Focusing on artists who appropriate, manipulate and transform elements found in anthropological methodologies and practices to create contemporary works that are alternately subversive, humorous, satirical, dark, playful and enchanting, The Sorcerer’s Burden considers the complex results that emerge when contemporary artists, curators and exhibitions turn to anthropology. These artists—working in painting, sculpture, photography, film, video and performance—explore the intersection between fact and fiction, and the questionable proposal that any field, media or genre might propose to convey the “truth.” Artists featured in this volume include Ed Atkins, Nuotama Frances Bodomo, Theo Eshetu, Cameron Jamie, Kapwani Kiwanga, Marie Lorenz, Nathan Mabry, Ruben Ochoa, Dario Robleto, Shimabuku and Julia Wachtel.

    Domus Grimani

    The Palazzo Grimani in Venice is a 16th-century palace in the Mannerist style. The former residence of the patrician Grimani family, the building also housed the Grimanis’ vast collection of Greek and Roman antiquities until 1596, when the collection—comprising sculptures, vases, marbles and bronzes—was transferred to the Biblioteca Marciana in Venice. In 2019, the Biblioteca is undergoing major ceiling repairs, so the Grimani collection has been temporarily relocated to its original home.Domus Grimani offers an extensive and detailed photographic tour of the building and its original collection, displaying and explicating not only their selection of Greco-Roman art, but also the residence of a 16th-century noble family; for the exhibition, objects and furnishings belonging to the Grimanis have also been retrieved from public and private collections in order to recreate their home as faithfully as possible.

This once proud and splendid country, with its fabled cities of Damascus and Aleppo, has been largely destroyed and great parts of its population have been forced to leave.
