A rare, behind-the-scenes look at one of the art world's most respected magazine, Parkett: 20 Years of Artists' Collaborations portrays and explores the 20 years of Parkett since 1984. Focused particularly on the making of the journals, signature artists' collaborations and editions, this book features unpublished artist interviews, statements, and other background information.
In a conversation with dOCUMENTA (13) Agents Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, New York-based video artist Paul Ryan talks about the theoretical and biographical background to his work, about formative experiences while being an assistant to Marshall McLuhan, and about his role within the video group Raindance and their magazine Radical Software-and about how all these influences shaped his desire to connect his artistic practice with revolutionary social action.
In his essay, Péter György reflects on the apparently unconnected "two Kassels" that exist next to each other. On the one hand, the former residential city in the middle of Germany, which was mostly destroyed in World War II and which became a border city through the inner division of Germany into East and West. On the other, the documenta city, which every five years, during the time of the exhibition, becomes the destination of an international audience and pushes the actual Kassel into the background with its "machinery of representation."
Although Peter Hutchinson has been working with land art since the 1960s, he has yet to receive his proper due. His work isn't found in galleries and he doesn't practice the kind of sensationalism that is typical of the art world. He is a refreshingly modest artist, and his delicate, fleeting work is extraordinarily beautiful, remarkably intelligent, and endlessly charming.
This is an ART book, not a children's book. Amanda Visell's art is part whimsical, part macabre. The book is lovely, full of excellent shots of Amanda's work, crafted in a very thoughtful manner, which only enhances the work itself.
As a shop worker for the legendary New York printmakers Joe Wilfer and Walter Hamady, Ruth Lingen learned both her trade and the pleasure of collaborating with living artists. In the years since, she herself has become somewhat of a legend, collaborating with nearly 50 of the world's greatest artists--on prints (some for Pace editions, some on her own) and very special limited edition artist's books.
