German painting two thousand and three alludes to the contemporary situation in its title, which is not necessarily to say it advances a radical counterprogram to classical discourses of painting. Nor does it set out to sketch current themes and trends, or to identify a national phenomenon, which painting most certainly isn?t. The title?s specifically German element is more a response to the needs and social circumstances that have given rise to painting?s present (return to) popularity, and to the strategies young artists in particular are developing to meet this. The focus is on individual approaches that seem symptomatic at present insofar as they strive to occupy up-to-date positions, adopting diverse strategies to integrate painting?s historical potential for critique and reflection.With a text by Ingo Niermann and numerous colour reproductions, the catalogue documents over 50 current positions of predominantly younger German or in Germany living artists.Artists: Tomma Abts, Yesim Akdeniz Graf, Kai Althoff, Monika Baer, Frank Bauer, Dirk Bell, Umit Bilgi, Henning Bohl, Andre Butzer, Thomas Eggerer, Tim Eitel, Jesko Fezer/Axel John Wieder, Lutz Fezer, Christian Flamm, Carsten Fock, Caroline von Grone, Katharina Grosse, Gabi Hamm, Sebastian Hammwohner/Uwe Henneken/Dani Jakob/Gabriel Vormstein, Klaus Hartmann, Eberhard Havekost, Tilo Heinzmann, Andreas Hofer, Sergej Jensen, Johannes Kahrs, Kiron Khosla, Jutta Koether, Hendrik Krawen, Kalin Lindena, Dietmar Lutz, Antje Majewski, Bernhard Martin, Rupprecht Matthies, Jonathan Meese, Birgit Megerle, Stephan Melzl, Klaus Merkel, Stefan Muller, Martin Neumaier, Frank Nitsche, Silke Otto-Knapp, Susanne Paesler, Gunter Reski, Anselm Reyle, Thomas Scheibitz, Tilo Schulz, Andreas Schulze, Eva Schwab, Markus Selg, Torsten Slama, Johannes Spehr, Lee Thomas Taylor, Wawrzyniec Tokarski, Corinne Wasmuht, Thomas Werner, Johannes Wohnseifer, Daniela Wolfer, Katharina Wulff, Amelie von Wulffen

This comprehensive reconstruction and interpretation of Louise and Walter Arensberg’s groundbreaking collection of modern and pre-Columbian art takes readers room by room, wall by wall, object by object through the couple’s Los Angeles home in which their collection was displayed. Following the Armory Show of 1913, Louise and Walter Arensberg began assembling one of the most important private collections of art in the United States, as well as the world’s largest private library of works by and about the philosopher Sir Francis Bacon. By the time Louise and Walter died—in 1953 and 1954, respectively—they had acquired some four thousand rare books and manuscripts and nearly one thousand works of art, including world-class specimens of Cubism, Surrealism, and Primitivism, the bulk of Marcel Duchamp’s oeuvre, and hundreds of pre-Columbian objects. These exceptional works filled nearly all available space in every room of their house—including the bathrooms. The Arensbergs have long had a central role in the histories of Modernism and collecting, but images of their collection in situ have never been assembled or examined comprehensively until now. Presenting new research on how the Arensbergs acquired pre-Columbian art and featuring never-before-seen images, Hollywood Arensberg demonstrates the value of seeing the Arensbergs’ collection as part of a single vision, framed by a unique domestic space at the heart of Hollywood’s burgeoning artistic scene.

"I have always been interested in what forms radical or sub-cultural activities will inhabit once they eventually make their debut upon the greater cultural field. Perhaps, in these new forms, the message becomes buried under commodification and the particularities of critique lost through the move towards a greater generality and appeal to the largest demographic. In Free Room one question I sought to ask was: are these forms capable of carrying a viable critique? Or in simpler terms: which is more effective, direct action or cultural production?" Alex Morrison Giving the Story a Treatment is the first comprehensive publication on Canadian artist Alex Morrison (*1972). Best known for his documentations on the skater culture, Morrison's videos, photographs and drawings take a critical look at the marketing and strategies at work, and reveal the growing aestheticisation of the political within the cultural spectrum. The renowned Canadian writer Jeff Derksen and Danish art critic Lars Bang Larsen contribute penetrating perspectives into Morrison's work, linking it in a historical continuum with activist moments of recent history and contemporary events. Contributors Lars Bang Larsen, interview by Jeff Derksen

According to author Kobena Mercer, "Odenbach's video art insists upon an attitude of openness towards uncertainty about the world. In this respect, his art criss-crosses the structural hybridization of video-based conceptualism with reflection on the lived experience of globalization." Since the mid-1970s, Marcel Odenbach has produced an extensive body of tapes, performances, drawings and installations, and has gained international recognition as one of Germany's most important artists working in video. His works engage in a provocative discourse on the construction of the "self" in relation to historical and cultural representation. Using excerpts from films and newsreels, along with his own footage, the artist explores the ways images of the past shape our perception of the present. With its comprehensive illustrations and essays, including a text by the artist, this book features Odenbach's most important works.
