    1980s, The: Pluralism on the Cusp of the Information Age

    The fourth volume of the chronological documentation of the MUSA, Museum Start Gallery Artothek's collection, is dedicated to the 1980s. This comprehensive and richly illustrated catalog of works provides insight into the art movements as well as the cultural life of this decade in Austria. This phase of the hotly debated "postmodernism?" is marked by the emergence of the art market that initially focused on "Neue Wilde" male-dominated painting. But the great attention paid to this international trend can be easily overlooked due to other trends that were emerging at the same time.

  • America: Films from Elsewhere

    America: Films from Elsewhere

    The cities, landscapes and people of America have been the subject of many a film, but when seen through an outsider's perspective, new and often significant aspects of its culture are revealed. "America: Films from Elsewhere" examines film and America from the perspective of auteurs from around the world -- from anyplace but America -- covering the half-century from the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 to the election of Donald Trump in 2017. Masters of the medium such as Chantal Akerman, Jean-Luc Godard, Michelangelo Antonioni, Lars von Trier, Jacques Demy, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Chris Marker are discussed, alongside lesser-known greats such as Yolande de Luart and Babette Mangolte. The book also features specially commissioned portfolios by artists including Camille Henrot, Harun Farocki, Lucy Raven, the Ottolith Group and Ute Aurand.

  • Art of Chinese Kung Fu, The

    Art of Chinese Kung Fu, The

    Spiritual, moral, philosophical, and of course martial elements are at the heart of the Kung Fu practice. The Art of Chinese Kung Fu explores these core tenets. The first section of the book is concerned with aesthetic manifestations, from photography to modern popular culture. Kung Fu's most famous practitioners, including Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, and seminal movies like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Kill Bill" are featured prominently. The latter section of the book digs deeper into the history and lore of the practice in remote parts of China, in the temples and cities where it now flourishes. The philosophical beliefs behind the practice and the important tenets of harmony and inclusiveness, are presented faithfully.

    Art of the B-Movie Poster, The

    Exploding off the page with more than 1,000 of the best examples of exploitation, grindhouse and pulp film poster design comes The Art of the B Movie Poster, a collection of incredible posters from low-budget films from the 1940s, '50s, '60s and '70s. The Art of the B Movie Poster is a loving tribute to the artwork and artists that brought biker gangs, jungle girls, James Bond rip-offs and reefer heads to life for audiences around the world.Once relegated to the underground and midnight movie circuit, these films and their bombastic advertisements are experiencing a surge of mainstream popularity driven by fans appreciative of the artistic skill, distinctive aesthetic, and unabashed sensationalism they relied on to make a profit, with the quality of the poster often far surpassing that of the film itself. The book celebrates this tradition with sections divided into moral panic films, action, horror, sci-fi, and of course, sex, each introduced with short essays by genre experts such as Kim Newman, Eric Schaefer, Simon Sheridan, Vern, and author Stephen Jones, winner of the Horror Writer's Association 2015 Bram Stoker Award for Non-Fiction. Edited by Adam Newell and featuring an introduction by author and filmmaker Pete Tombs.

  • David Noonan: A Dark and Quiet Place

    David Noonan: A Dark and Quiet Place

    A Dark and Quiet Place accompanies a new moving image work of the same name by Melbourne artist David Noonan (born 1969). Both the film and the book present a meditation on performance, its associated apparatus and the physical and imaginary domains they inhabit. That this is Noonan's first film work in over a decade is significant, as his practice since has frequently referenced both the material qualities of film and projection, and an ongoing interest in the slippages between figuration and pure abstraction. For the book, the artist has worked closely with award-winning design studio A Practice for Everyday Life to disassemble the film work back into a rhythmic sequence of still images, employing both the language of design and Noonan's characteristic strategies of layering and manipulation. More than a series of film stills, the images that make up this book acquire their own intrinsic quality, proposing new spatial configurations and performative actions. In his response to the work, celebrated author Brian Dillon presents a piece of fiction at once speculative and rigourously rational, in which geometric shapes become performers, diagrammatic grids become complex stage sets, and the supremacy of the body is thrown into doubt.

    Douglas Gordon: I Had Nowhere to Go

    In his film for Documenta 14, Scottish video artist Douglas Gordon presents a portrait of Jonas Mekas’s acclaimed autobiography I Had Nowhere to Go, mixing stills with footage of Mekas reading. The book relays how Mekas fled his home in Lithuania to escape the Nazis, ending up in a camp for displaced persons before managing to emigrate to America, where he commenced his career in underground film, establishing the legendary Anthology Film Archives in New York. Gordon’s artist’s book accompanies his film. Neither is a straight retelling of Mekas’s classic account of dislocation; rather, they are Gordon’s artistic reactions to his book and its narrative style. The book merges film stills with text excerpts from Mekas’s memoir.
